Anyone have any opinions about these? Just ran into a LEO who wirks for the fed reserve bank and he said that he has one and it is the shit!

I ain't goona give up my glcok, Springfield Armory, Beretta or my Smith & Wesson for one of these, but i figured that some of hte braintrust may have actually seen a gangbanger shooting one of these beuatys and know something about it!

Just looked one up on Gunbroker, maybe a llama would be the way to go?

Sorry, just trolling. I almost fell in the floor when this guy was telling me what a great off-duty weapon they were.

stake my life on a Hi-point?

Not bloody likely!

Just make sure you get the sights mounted on the side of the slide, for cool, ghetto-style shooting.

Let me know where this LEO lives.

Because if he carries a hi-point for self defense, I want to be sure to send his widow flowers.

Hi point is kind of an oversized bryco/lorcin/jennings. Sure it'll go bang sometimes and it might not blow up in your hand but I certainly wouldnt want to rely on one. I'd much sooner buy a CZ52 for $99 and carry that.

is someone on crack here, no way a real leo would ever use a hipoint, he would be laughed out of his pd

That's an expensive paperweight......

I have an HK USP .45 ACP pistol that has been wonderful to shoot. With that said, I also have a Hi-Point .45 ACP pistol that has performed very well and been a joy to shoot as well.

I have about 1400-1500 rounds through the Hi-Point and have not had one problem with it. I make sure to clean it when done shooting and it has been a joy to shoot along with my other guns.

I think alot of you all out there hear a few people say something negative about a particular firearm and you all jump on the wagon. How many of you voicing criticizm about Hi-Point actually have shot or owned one??? I would guess not many.

There may be bad Hi-Point firearms out there but I know my pistol has been a joy to shoot and problem free.

Homie sights are the way to go!

navy 4 life, my cousin has one (9mm) and he said he likes it. I don't know how much he shoots it though. I also a read a gun mag article where the guys just wanted to rip it, but they said they couldn't because it was actually useable. Now, I don't think I personally would get one because I think they're freeking ugly. But with that said, most of these guys are blowing smoke because you're right, they probably never had one. With the exception of the gentleman that said he sold one to his brother and it jammed all the time. I wonder if he was shooting fmj or not? They say the feed ramp aint the best on those.

I agree. This story reaked of BS from the get go, but some people just might be that stupid and just might find their way into a job, so you never can tell....

No shit, this guy really did work at the Fed Res Bank and he was talking about carrying his hi-point off duty. He said that they issed SIGS (I think).

I was nice to him and suggested that he get a Springfield-armory, SIG or a Glock for off-duty carry, but he siad the the Hi-Point was fine and he didn't have the money for a Glock or a SIG.

I felt bad for him, but he was defending the Hi-Point asa good carry gun. Oh well.

I won a Hi Point PC-9 in a raffle. It was quite accurate at self defense ranges and it ran perfectly. This was the first time I ever handled or shot a Hi Point.
