    I have a Hi Point 4095TS carbine (40 S&W $279). It's not used for any kind of defense. It's my "play" gun. And it's a hoot to shoot. I've put a couple thousand rounds of my reloads thru it without "ANY" glitches. NOT ONE! Now I'm not pushing Hi Point. If I were having any problems with it, I'd say so. All I'm doing is sharing my experience with my Hi Point. Go to youtube and do a search on Hi Point. You'll find a ton of videos on them. Do they last? I guess I'll find out. But if I could have only one gun, it would NOT be a Hi Point. I'd scrimp and save until I could afford more quality. But I already have a bunch of quality guns, and I wanted to experiment a little with my first "black gun". So far, my Hi Point carbine has been a totally fun and utterly reliable gun! Only time will tell if it remains that way. I just hope this experiment doesn't create a desire for an AR.

    OP. Here's the Hi Point forum. Go here and get educated on Hi Point: http://www.hipointfirearmsforums.com/forum/

    Happy Shooting,

    Don <><

I understand that a gun like this could never stand up to a Glock but is a Hi-Point a quality gun at a cheap price? Why is a Hi-Point so cheap and a S&W three times the price? Thanks for the input and for helping me learn.
    Not trying to start a "Huge Debate"...funny.
    What are your expectations? It's an inexpensive gun made from inexpensive materials. It's unlikely that it would become a treasured family heirloom. On the positive side, the company has developed a surprisingly good reputation for great customer service.
    What is your intended use? For plinking, go for it. For just a cheap toy for killing cans, it'll probably do the job just fine. They do have a spotty reputation for reliability. One will run like a clock, others can't go through a magazine without a problem. Which one will you get? I wouldn't recommend betting one's life on it's performance, (not without a lot of testing) but that's personal choice.
    If you must buy new, I would steer you toward a Ruger P95, at around $300-$350, it's hard to beat. The Stoeger Cougar is another one. Old School (Metal) Beretta design at fire sale prices ($400 +/-)

    The goal is an all around gun for legal everyday concealed carry and also for the fun of shooting at the range. I have learned about Bersa firearms and people seem to like them for the money. Sure I will get a Ruger if I can afford one. I am in no hurry to buy, that is why I am learning now and saving as I go.

    Re: Should a newbie consider a Hi-Point firearm?

    Bersa I always seem to forget them, I have a friend that carries a firestorm in 9 and loves it. I've shot it a few times and seems like a good gun.
