    Hi Point, worth 150 or not?

    There are a couple of guys in our area selling Hi Points handguns from 130 to 150 for 9mm and .40 cal. Is it worth that kind of $ or is it really a bad idea. I would also like to get one of their carbines and was just wondering if the handguns hold up or if they're garbage and stay away at all costs.

    I don't own one, but I feel the general consensus around here is they are crap. One of our members, IIRC, saw one come apart at the range! If you have $150 to blow and are looking for a range gun, then it's your call. Based on their reputation though, I know I'd never buy a Hi Point as a self defense gun and trust my life or the life of my family to one.

    I would not buy one because I can with relative ease afford better. I know a couple of people that have a 9 and 40 that have had good luck with them. I have shot several 100 round IPSC courses along side of them and they always went bang. I never saw them hickup in any way.

    If you don't have a lot of loose coins they might be a good buy. You can buy a lot of ammo for the difference in cost between them vs. an XD, M&P or Glock. When you can afford better throw it in your tackle box as an in case you need it gun.

    Good luck.

    I wouldn't walk across the street to get one free. I've seen way too many things go wrong with those weapons to ever want to spend my money on one. I'm not one that says you need to spend a grand to get a quality weapon But you wont be getting one if it has Hi-Point either. If it was me I'd take some time ad save a little more money and watch the shops and gun shows. You can get a bargain many times and end up with a much better weapon.

    Same opinion here. Save a few more $$ and buy a used gun if you have to. Look around for a Ruger P89 or a Taurus 92. I think used would be better than a Hi-Crap.

    I actually talked to a guy at the range this weekend that loves his Hi-Point. He did say that the first day he took it out it broke and had to send it back for repairs. He doesn't mind the constant jams either.

    Devils, are you trying to copy my avatar??........

    I do own one, it's never broken (I don't shoot it much).

    I bought it several years ago to add to my collection - I wouldn't do it again.

    I only buy high quality guns now (new & used) - I've had too many bad experiences with cheap guns and I've traded the cheap ones all off - no body wants to take this one in trade ... that might tell you something

    Haven't shot one, but a buddy of mine has one and I haven't heard him complain. My girlfriend shot his and didn't have any issues.

    All the same, I've heard more bad things about Hi-Point than any others. I figure the opinions of others must count for something. I would save up some more money and look for a good used gun. Sure it will take you a bit longer, but I think you'll be happier in the end.

    One guy out of 10 used a high point at my ccw class. He struggled to finish because of ftf's.

    I would't trust my life to it. I.M.O.

    Go to a Hi-Point forum and you will hear nothing but good stuff about them. Go to any other forum and the talk will be either love 'em or hate 'em. I would not get one for a SD weapon. For just a fun range gun, maybe.

    Hi-Point does have probably the best customer service of any weapon. When they say lifetime, they mean lifetime - of the gun, not the owner.

    Yup! Comes up about once every three to four weeks. P.T. Barnum would be proud.

    Yeah,and like Zhur said, it comes up on a regular basis. I think what happens is people want a gun, for whatever reason, so they start looking. Then they find out most guns are $400 and up. Then they see a gun for $150 and wonder why the price difference. So they ask. Considering the economy and also how expensive shooting is, I can't blame people for looking for a deal. Just hopefully they realize they should spend the extra money on a better gun if it is going to be used for SD.

    i had a hi point .380 . i bought it from a buddy for 80 bucks. I never got around to shooting it but that thing had to weigh 20 pounds. i wound up selling it and then getting my sw40ve and love it. i am a firm believer when it comes to firearms that if it goes bang and your happy with it there is nothing wrong with it. i have always herd that the hi points go bang when you pull them so in the end it is up to you. If i were in your shoes i would try to find one you can shot ( some gun ranges have guns you can rent ) and shoot it and a higher quality gun and see which you like better. If the hi point suits your needs and your happy with it then buy it but that way you can have some kind of guide line to go by. Hope this helps some

    I'm sorry, but I think anyone who posts about buying a Hi-point should have to take a kick in the sack from everyone else that knows better!!!!



    *poking fun... poking fun*

    No but really.. a solid kick in the sack.
