    Well one good thing about the gun is that you could easily beat someone to death with it.

    I had 'Hi" hopes when I bought a 9MM carbine. If it hadn't jammed about every 5 or 10 rounds I would have kept the piece of crap! Other than that, it was a cool looking gun that I would never take to a fire fight!

    I say if you like it go for it. I really like the Taurus guns, a lot of people gave me grief over it. All that matters is you getting comfortable and train with the firearm, if it works for you that's what matters. It is better to have a Hi-point, than a pocket full of rocks. Get what you can afford you can always upgrade to something better at a later time if you want to. Good luck and stay safe.

    I have collected many of them out of the waistbands of thugs over the years. They would make great hammers, boat anchors, paperweights, doorstops or wheel chocks. I've never considered using them as firearms though. I'm not being a gun snob, I just see too many catastrophic failures with them over the years. It has been discussed before, I've seen high points at many suicide scenes so I no they are good for one shot. More than one may be a tall order.

    My dad has the Hi - Point 9mm carbine. Not a bad gun for the money and fun to shoot! Just hate the single stack mags

    Like any low dollar tool it depends what you expect from them. I know some who hate them and others who love them. It might be that some of the weaknesses have been corrected but the reputation stays or it might be that some are decent and others are junk. If you find one that feels good try it and find out for yourself.
    Back in 1971 when I bought my Ruger they were the new kid on the block and a lot of folks said they were junk because they were so inexpensive. Well here it is all these years later and that Ruger has been the best gun I ever bought and i wish I had three or four more because after well over 40000 rounds it is still tight and shoots 1 inch groups at 25 yards free hand.

    Ya that's a Ruger not a Hi-Point. Hi-Point is truly a piece of crap.

    Ugly, yes, but do you really care what it looks like if it does the job. They all look ugly from the wrong end pointed at you!
    What a ridiculous statement, when I mowing down zombies I want to look as bad azz as possible.... not with some ugly piece of metal.
