    They don't have a good reputation. But there are some people that have them that really like them. I hope you are one of those people and your weapon serves you well.

    Hi and welcome to this forum, I think you'll like it.

    I own a Hi-Point semi-automatic carbine in 9mm - like you said it was cheap , but I've never had any trouble with it.

    welcome to the forum young, I think you will find it to be very helpful (most of the time).

    Hi Points are what they are...cheap. They are fine to plink around and have fun with, but plan on getting something else if you are serious about handguns. There is a significant difference in quality between hi point and any major brand.

    And if it does fall apart, hopefully it's a lesson learned at the range.

    Edit: BTW, Welcome to the forum!

    yes it would be better that if it fell apart that it would be at the range or in my backyard. As opposed to it happening when i would need to use it for protection.Ty for the welcome.
