So I'm on YouTube & I came across a video that compared a hi-point 9mm to a Glock 9mm....even said they looked almost identical. It goes on to say that's its an apples to oranges deal, but continued to attempt to compare the 2. Woooooooooooow!

Hey, Pam Anderson vs Precious... lol too funny....

I think ive seen that video. My first gun was actually a hipoint, good gun to use for practice or jst to light off some rnds but never for self protection.

Yeah a friend of mine had 1. He had to rack the slide for every single shot. They r decent if highly maintained, but will never match up to Glock. My opinion

Just remember...Everything you see on the internet is 100% true and highly accurate...just like High Points. LOL

They are cheap guns...that's about the one good thing I can say about it.

I shot over 350 rnds through mine before getting rid of it (for my first glock, g23) n not one malfunction. Then again 350 rnds aint really much...

Yes they r cheap lol......350 rounds is not a lot but the way hi point has been bashed, 350 rounds with no buck-ups is not bad at all. I still would only use it for fun. Any kind of defense is out of the question unless something happens while its already in my hands.

Ya i bought it as a practice gun in all. Makes a good cheap starter gun in my opinion.

I actually dont think its a bad idea. It may actually be smarter to do that and really learn on something that is cheaper than going out and starting with something that you may lose interest in.

I might be a bit elitist, but I will never own a Hi-Point for anything. I always steer people away from them and I think they are nothing but junk. Kinda of like the old Jennings pocket guns.

I just watched a video on a hi point and many people gave it good reviews. Other then the look what is wrong with the gun?
I never had 1 but I know people who have. I also have seen good reviews on them, but by me knowing how they perform just by watching friends shoot I won't trust 1 with my life. Maybe there are some decent ones out there but I have yet to see. In person that is. First time I seen 1 shot, he had to rack the slide for each shot. Second time,diff person,diff gun...jams, failure to ejects. Like I said I never owned 1 but know people that have & from what I have seen, ill never buy 1 to protect me or my family.

Besides, who sells .45 cal pistols brand new for $150? I mean we all know we get what we pay for. All I can say is try 1 out it may work for ya. For how long though.
