      Taurus or Hi-Point. Hmmm. A lot like choosing between Hillary and Obama isn't it?

      The question was: Is a Hi point Pistol worth $150. It absolutely is. Can you compare it to Pistols costing three times more. No. If Glock made a $150 NIB pistol it would probably be of the same quality. For the money it is
      a great FIRST pistol.

      If you can't afford a more expensive weapon
      you could do much worse than a Hi- point. I still have my 1st gun a used C-9.
      Ugly, heavy but reliable. I have never had a problem with it working when I pulled the trigger. I've put 800 rounds through mine.
      I bought it used for $100 figuring I could trade it in for something better if it was a POS.
      I still own it.
      Unless your reading from someone that owns or owned one take what is said with a grain of salt. No one wants to believe a gun that costs a third of what they paid for their gun can be any good.

      As stated by others, Hi-point has a lifetime warranty that is good for WHO EVER owns the weapon.
      There are plenty of stories of people sending badly broken hi points they picked up used & cheap back to the factory and getting new ones back, no charge with a free mag .

      I didn't want to be unarmed while saving for my more expensive weapon when the BG's came to visit.

      Hi Points ........ are they worth 150 bucks. If you can easily afford something for more then 150 bucks then they are not. If you can't afford 350 or 600 bucks and you have to have a gun, then they are.

      Me I would never pay 150 bucks for a Hi Point. I would pay 300 for a Taurus every day I had a chance to. I would not take a Hi Point out and shoot it, So it would be like throwing 150 down the crapper. I have held Hi points, I have looked throughthe sites one them, I have even holstered one once, I have even tried to make myself like them. I have also tried to make myself like brussel sprouts but if brussel sprouts were 25 cents a pound would I buy them even if I could derive nutritien from them and they would fill my stomach....he!! no unless I was down to my last quarter and had one foot in the grave. Hi Points are the brussel sprout of hand guns.

      I have a Hi Point 45, is it pretty? no,Is it lightweight? no, Does it hold 15 rds? no, would I want to strap it to my side and carry it all day? no, But It does go bang every time I pull the trigger, and I wouldnt hesitate to put it on my nightstand at night either.

      I wasn't aware that there ws a threaded barrel available for HiPoint.

      Does it cost more than the gun?

      I wonder how many people that make fun of these guns have ever fired one? I also wonder how many of these people would be willing to bet gun against gun against one of these pistols as far as accuracy and reliability go, Hmmm. this might be a good way for some of the people that have highpoints to get some of those more expensive gun snobbish type guns, you know the ones that cost about 5 times more but function worse.Any Takers.

      Taker here.

      I have shot one. I would put it up against any of my guns. EVERY TIME I see one at the range it has some type of malfunction, EVERY TIME!! Those are really the only malfunctions I see other than AR's, on a regular basis.

      Lets do it after all what have I got to lose, a $120 dollar pistol, woo hoo!People shouldnt judge a whole brand by one pistol at their range, and as daddy always says never bet a man at his own game.

      Considering the OP never once responded to this thread and hasn't been here in almost three months, let's end this before it gets ugly.
