    The Hi-Point 9MM Handgun

    I found one for 170$ in a pawn shop, is it worth buying?

    Your handle says RugerFan. You would be ahead of the game if you would stick with them IMHO.

    Wait

    Save up your money and purchase something reliable, that you can operate with confidence. There are excellent, used, pistols from Ruger, Glock, Smith and Wesson, Springfield Armory, and others, that will be a world better for you than what you are considering.

    When I want something, I set my sights on that and save up for it. The wait and anticipation are worth the results.

    From who? The guy selling it?

    I've never owned one, and from what I've heard about them, never intend to.

    You'll notice there is no Hi Point sub-forum here. Might be a clue to the quality and popularity of the brand.

    $170 is to much for a brand new HI-Point, wait for a gun show to roll around, and buy a brand new one for $120, if all you are gonna do is target shoot with it, the HI-Point is fine for that, but if you are going for self defense, try looking at a Kel-Tec, brand new for about $230 whats up with all the bad mouthing the Hi-Point? several of my friends have Hi-Points of different calibers, including 9mm, they are cheep for those who want to pop of shots at a cheaper price, we have never had a problem that was not ammunition related, ugly yes, so what? are you focused of what the gun looks like? or where the bullet is going??? HMMM......

    $170 is the right price if it comes with the optional laser.Brand New

    There's no way I would buy one. Say what you want, but you get what you pay for.

    That's true. We all told Baldy there's no way he'd be able to understand the functioning of an AR, yet he still went out and bought one.

    You are a Ruger fan? I think you should save a bit more(not much more) and find a Ruger P95DC. You will be happy you did.

    Go to the High Point Forum and ask the guys who own them. You will hear almost no complaints and if it does break, they are warranteed forever. I don't have one, but have read on a lot of forums and they get a lot of bad press from those who don't own them and/or have never shot them.

    Save up your money and buy a used Ruger P series. It might be twice the cost but its much more than twice the gun imho!
    If your looking for an inexpensive centerfire handgun look at Bersa I think they are a very under rated manufacturer.

    Save your money! My friend bought one (at a super cheap price) and it always malfunctioned. He always blamed it on the ammo, but we were shooting the same ammo, and I had no problems.

    It's your money, so if you want one, go ahead.
