I've been seriously considering buying a Hi-Point 9mm. I read reviews from owners who have had the comments I'm seeing repeated here as well. I'm trying to get my younger brother to consider keeping one of the 9mm HP's as a gift. If he doesn't want the HP I'll keep it myself!
My brother knows that I have guns but he still hasn't taken an interest in having one in his home. I've took him to the range with me a few years ago and he loved firing my gun at the time. I know he wants to shoot guns but having one in your own home is something entirely different.
