    The Beretta 92 and 96 are great if you can figure a good way to carry.

    maybe that glock went kaboom because of +P ammo
    glock doesn't recommend +P
    (I think that is correct)

Been shooting hi-point for years with no problems whatsoever. For home defense or plinking you can't go wrong, maybe not so great for competitive shooting or public carry protection, but great for everything else.

    Unless you have actually had experience with a certain firearm, don't be so quick to dismiss it.

    If you want a cheap, reliable handgun Hi-Point is the way to go.

    Jennings/Bryco firearms are not the greatest. I have a .32 Bryco that I throw in the car whenever I am going into the city. It has actually fallen apart once, luckily when not being fired. It is a good throw away gun (use once and toss it in the river), but that's about it. Cheap and small, that's why all the "illegals" carry it. Again, not the greatest.

    Good Lord.

    Throw away in the river?

    I simply can't respond without being rude.

    Happy Thanksgiving.. meaning that your defense weapon should be your best friend, not something you'd throw in the river after an illegal act.

    Grow up.

    Sorry but this is rediculous.

    I do have personal experence with Hi-Point. I had one and tried it for a few years. I even spent a wad of money trying to fix it. I told by gun smiths that it was junk and not worth spending the money to fix it. My Hi-Point did nothing but FTF. Worst of all it had a tendancy to eject the magazine after firing a round or two.

    I am sure there are alot of good stories out there about Hi-Point but that is my story and why I vote NO on Hi-Points.

    I've owned or shot extensively the following brands/guns: Beretta 96, Bersa 380, KelTec 380, S&W Sigma 40, Kimber CDP, Kimber TLE, Glock 19, Taurus 24/7, Browning Buckmark, SA XD9SC and various wheel guns. I never ran into a lemon that I wouldn't trust to save my life in this group of guns.

    EDIT: Oops...didn't read the second page and assumed it ended after the first. Apparenty the situation has been handled already, making my comment irrelevant.
