Yea this thread totally doesn't belong in defensive carry guns...no one in their right mind would ever carry a Hi Point for SD.
Anyways, I want one for a range toy. What were these going for before the hoarding? Any Wisconsin residents see one at their LGS?
J&G Sales has them for $159 and they shoot well and take a beating and thats the 45ACP.
I think you have to hire a Sherpa to carry it.

I'd rather own a slingshot.

I bought a Hi Point C9 several months ago to replace a .44 mag Super Blackhawk I had for a house gun. I also bought a Kel Tec PF9 for CC. When I took both to the range for break in I was pleasantly surprised at how much more accurate the Hi Point was and how much less recoil it had. I know people say that the Hi Point is ugly, but I have never considered a gun to be equated with beauty, only function. The Hi Point is virtually indestructible, and it is my favorite range pistol.
To each his own.
I'd pay $160 for one and that's about it. Once you get to $250+, might as well save a bit more and buy an Armscor 1911 that you could carry if you so chose.
They're hideous looking, and they're too bulky for much of anything but range shooting, but IME they go bang and they shoot straight.
Hey, if he wants one, he wants one. Nothing wrong with that.
I just bought a cheapo Chinese coach gun with rabbit ear hammers, just because I wanted one.
I have had two friends that owned Hi Points. Both worked well with any ammo fed to them. Both were fairly accurate. Both guys upgraded when they could afford it. They were both young GIs living on tight budgets. But the Hi Point was fine. I could see one as a night stand or desk gun. They are like the pintos and vegas, Cheap transportation. DR
For about the third or forth time I will say it.I own one and it shoots as well as my high priced guns. I own a glock and a kimber and a colt, but the high point shoots just as well as they do Yes it is a cheap gun and it rattles if you shake it , but it goes bang when you pull the trigger.
More than likely must gun stores probably won't have any Hi Points in stock..... You might want to try a gun show...
