    out of the few thousand rounds I put through my old High Point I never had any issues with it. It was my first pistol because I did not have the cash for anything else and really wanted to start shooting. I used it for two years and just sold it recently. It is still firing without any complaints and has been real reliable. The weight actually countered the recoil to keep you on target most of the time.

    The funny story about this is when I took it in for the safety inspection at the county sheriff's office is that the deputy asked me if I run out of ammunition and the bad guy was still a threat, would I just knock him out with it?

    Point being - If you cant afford anything else you can get something for home defense which is better than nothing, and if on a tight budget where it would take 6 months to a year to get something else a high point fits the bill to get at least some home defense.

    I have been almost broke and without a home defense gun, many years ago. The solution for that is to buy a beat up old single shot shotgun and a box of buck shot. It's even cheaper than a Hi-Point, more reliable, and much more deadly at pistol range than a .45. - and it requires very little practice. You can buy an elastic shell holder to put on the stock, at Walmart for $7, and it becomes an 'almost' repeater, with some practice.

    A Hi-Point, or any gun with a reputation for not working consistently, should not be what stands between you and a guy that beats down your door to get at your family.
