    I have one and love it. It is the best door stop I have ever owned...

    Seriously, the gun has a poor grip and an very high bore axis. It is a low grade inexpensive pistol.
    Guns are like tools, more expensive is usually better. If you donít do a lot of work on your car, made in china cheap tools are ok, if you do a lot of work buy Craftsman or Snap On.
    In this respect, people that do not have a lot of money but still want to be able to protect themselves and their family should be able to do so.

    I really thought this thread would die, but it hasn't. So, I borrowed a Hi-Point and tried to shoot this thread... but the pistol fell apart. Alas, this thread will not die!

    Considering you brought the thread back up after almost a week, sir, you may indeed be shooting...err, beating...a dead horse!
    Or perhaps your own foot, not sure.

    Of course you mean that I brought it up after the poll was voted on again, with no comment, so there's no date listed when they voted... that's what you meant... of course. [/comic relief]

    It brings it back up when someone votes? My bad then, the other forums I'm on don't do that.

    I am a former owner of a 9mm Hi-Point.
    The one that I had was a horrible gun.

    Here is the story. I was buying another pistol off a guy and through haggling he threw in the Hi-Point to seal the deal. Two guns for the price of one! Sounded good to me.
    I instantly had problems with it. It would stove pipe on what seemed like every magazine.
    I told the guy that "sold" it to me what problems I was having. He said he knew. It was a piece of junk. Why did I think he gave it to me for nothing.
    I tried the warranty route which was a test in frustration. When I finally got it "fixed" I had a new problem. After every round or at least every other round the magazine released. Not ideal for a self-defense gun. I am not a one shot to end the fight shooter yet.
    At the beginning of the year I was talking to a fellow gun owner about what guns we had and what guns we wanted. I mentioned that I had the Hi-Point but did not count it as one of my guns. He said he thought he could fix it and would not mind taking it off my hands. I warned him that it was useless and not dependable for protection in my opinion. I think I told him that in my opinion it was more effective to take the bullets out of the magazine and throw them.
    He tried to fix it. He never could get it to work right. He sold it to a friend of his at work. His friend hated it too.
    I called my friend to see if his co-work liked the Hi-Point when I saw this post. He said his co-worker was or already had taken it to a get guns off the streets rally and traded it in for a gift certificate for a turkey.
    That is 4 people that I know of that have had personal issues with Hi-Points.

    Enough of the anecdote, here are the points that I realized owning a Hi-Point.
    1. It feels like cheep plastic.
    2. It weighs as much as a full size gun.
    3. It is like trying to conceal a swingline stapler.
    4. It is a pain to break down to clean. (I would suggest you try to break it down before you buy it)
    5. I rattles when you shake it.
