I would never buy a hi point but I watched a video where 2 guys were trying to clown Hi Points and they beat the crap out of it and ran it over with their truck ... it still fired.
If someone gave me one I may keep it but I have better things to spend money on
Lord, make me fast and accurate, let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who seek to destroy me, grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine, let not my last thought be - 'If I only had my gun'- and Lord if today is truly the day you call me home, let me die in a pile of warm brass,
I pass on that fugly handgun.

My first adult gun purchase was a Hi Point C9. It isn't pretty and no doubt its not even in the same league with Glock/S&W/Ruger or even Taurus but it has them all beat on the price point. For those that want to prep but are financially challenged its a good weapon to have. Mine has always gone bang and they're chambered in the common calibers. I don't own a carbine but from what I understand they are a pretty good value although that has somewhat been diminished these days since Ar-15's are dirt cheap.
Anyways when I bought my S&W my Hi Point was repurposed as a car gun and a backup gun or one to give to an unarmed friend/family member during shtf.

I'm a creep. I'm a weirdo. What the hell am I doing here. I don't belong here.
Buying into a hipoint aint all that bad. I picked one up in 45acp just to give em a try. It aint pretty, it aint interchangeable but it do work every time so it has a place in my life. Kinda like trumph. He aint exactly your normal politician, he doesn't follow the rules but there is just something that makes 46% of the repubs follow along behind him. Change isn't easy to swallow but sometimes you just have to try it.
I watched Nutnfancy on Youtube give his opinion of the Hi-Point.
It was a fair assessment. As long as you stay away from aftermarket magazines, they apparently operate almost flawlessly.
They're very heavy, so not an ideal carry gun.
However, they're very cheap and go bang when you need them to. They sound like a perfect "arm the neighbors" option when the blue helmets start moving in to range.
