    The revolver in the photo to which you supplied the link also suffered catastrophic failure, if I remember correctly, because of an overpressure-loaded cartridge. It was not the gun's fault, but rather a result of shooter (reloading) error.
    The Glock failure, too, was a matter of shooter error, I believe. Its overpressure failure may have been the result of using lead bullets without proper maintenance.
    And since it's not noted what caused the failure of the Hi Point, it's logical to consider overpressure as a cause of it as well. I own a C-9 as does my son, neither have had an issue at all with in excess of a few thousand rounds down the tube. I know many other Hi Point owners with similar stories of no problems with their guns.

    That said, my Hi Point is not my carry gun, it is heavy and clunky, the only holsters I've found that work worth squat with them are cheap Airsoft pistol cloth holsters, not the quality of holster I prefer for carry. But the old thing goes bang every time you pull the trigger, as accurately as guns selling for several hundred dollars more.

    Hi Point 40 testing

    Two points, one I personally witnessed a fellow of at 65 yo shoot one next to me and score 99%! He out shot me, and my M9! I asked the range owner after we wrapped, he said that they have had nothing but great service from a $145.00 gun.
    Second point, we are going to test a Hi Point 40 or 9mm shortly, and I will not stop abusing it until is breaks, check it out! Darrell

    my uncle and my step father both own one. neither can get through a full magazine without jamming. il admit neither of them are gun freaks and neither know much, and with someone more knowledgeable properly cleaning both guns and mabey polishing up a few inside parts they would do ok, i assume. but, out of the box, both of those suck. id rather use my flintlock. atleast i know its gunna go boom once. the only good thing i have to say about hipoint is sence their guns are so cheap, if you do have problems with it, just send it in for "repair" and they send u a new one.

    their pistols suck, but their little carbines are cool.

    excellent first post. thanks for not cluttering it up with punctuation. i see a comma did slip in but it didnt detract from the overall jumble of the idea.

    Hi Point

    When looking for my first handgun I was on a very small budget so started researching Hi Points, I am in California so only 2 of them are on the approved list. The more I searched the more I seemed to find that 99% of the negative comments were from people who have never owned or even shot a High Point. And 99% of the owners of a High Point had mostly positive things to say about them. They are ugly, they are heavy but there warranty is unbeaten by anyone, send it in no matter what happened or who owns it and they will fix it PROMPTLY. I have never had a single issue with mine. I now Have a Glock and a Sig but continue to shoot my High Point and still enjoy doing so.

    Hi-points... ehh

    Shot 2 versions, the 9mm-compact version and the .45 version. No problems when I shot them, however, I would rather for 200 bucks extra buy something I know will stand the test of time even a used Glock you can get for around 300

    If you can get one for around 100 bucks, do it, any more than 100 is a waste of money

    treytonguns8588: since you are new here, Welcome - and let me offer to do you a solid.

    It appears you have the misfortune to own some junky Colts, S&Ws, and Glocks. Let me know what you have and I'll let you trade up to some more Hipoints.

    I hate Hi Point threads..............the only people in them that make sense aren't the ones who shoot them. Although they are generally the ones who have a bunch of other high buck guns, but still love their Hi Points and can't help but go back to them.

    I for one, believe them because I have a Yugo I bought used, it was cheap but it had 4 wheels and a gas cap.
    Now I have a Caddy STX and an Accura ZDX but I still drive my classic Yugo and I love it.

    With air shocks and 5 spoke Chromed wheels............I am looking for a decked out Vega right now to trade my Pinto in on but if I can't find one it's a supercharged Yugo again for me. With a good enough stereo you'll never even hear the engine run out of oil.
