    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.

    one of the "features" of a hi point is that each and every one of the comes with an "Operations & safety sheet", their manual is a sheet of paper.....

    Worse than that. I am certain that the frame and slide on these weapons are made from zinc die castings. Zinc die casting is the process that turns out those highly polished chrome plated knobs on bathroom faucets, the chrome plated toilet paper holders and the chrome plated soap dishes.

    The main advantages of zinc die casting are that they can produce parts very, very cheaply; the parts can be cast with great accuracy and they take chrome plating very well. It is not a traditional firearms material. It is weak and it cracks easily; it is soft and wears quickly. But if you chrome plate the parts they will wear well in the configuration of the slides and if you make the parts beefy enough they will be strong enough (mostly). All of this explains why they fail, and why they have fat, clunky frames and slides.

    I personally would never own a weapon produced from a zinc die casting (even if it were alloyed with some aluminum--which makes it stronger, it really sucks as a firearms material.) It should be used for plumbing fixtures and lighting fixtures.

    But the weapons are cheap and they work for a while and for some people that is enough.

    Note: Some newer plumbing fixtures use plateable grade ABS plastics in place of zinc die castings. So maybe there will be a plastic gun in our future.

    other than being big, bulky, and heavy, they are also ugly as sin. but good thing about the massive sidearm, is that you will have no problem beating someone to death with it. other than that ive heard nothing but good things, so to my surprise there are alot of used ones for sale. keep that in mind cause theres only a couple reasons why someone will sell a barely used gun which usually consists of: upgrading to higher quality (but if its such a good deal, any gun guy would keep it), in bad need of quick cash, something was found wrong with it that either is dangerous, or something the manufacturer will not cover under warranty, etc... so think hard about it $160 for a new 40s&w isnt bad at all but if you add another $250, you could find a good used beretta or glock in the same caliber

    except for the fact that zinc castings have been used in firearms since there have been zinc castings, i tend to agree with you....

    raven, jennings, jiminez, bryco, lorcin, rohm, rg, smith and wesson, walther , davis to name a few have all turned out guns with significant zinc castings and without fail, they have been huge pieces of crap.

    Yes a hammer would be best but the op is wanting a gun that can double as a hammer in case an emergency roofing situation occurs in a shootout. Gotta stay prepared right?
