Hi-Point Firearms

Postby casey_714 » Sun May 28, 2006 6:26 pm

Hey guys, I have been looking into buying a Hi-Point. The .45 acp they make, to be specific. I can get one for $130 new.

Has anyone on here ever owned any of their guns? I know that they are cheap, but I mostly want it for plinking anyways. Plus they all have a lifetime guarentee, even if you bought it from a gun show! That's a plus for me.... :thumbsup:

I had one years ago, and they may have changed things. But the .45 then felt like a toy and it scared me to shoot the thing. I was waiting for it to blow up in my hand.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Why not just save up your money and buy something a little more dependable and safer to shoot.

If you are interested in geting a pistol for plinking why not get a caliber such as 9mm or .38 since the ammo is much cheaper. Just a suggestion.

the rest of us have .45's and buy ammo in bulk... he's just wanting something cheap so he doesnt have to borrow ours all the time... the thing about hi-points is that they have a lifetime no questions asked warranty on them... plus even though they are cheaply made, they couldnt sell them if they just blew up in peoples hands...

I own a Hi-Point .40 cal and I like it. For the price you really can not go wrong. It is a bit on the big side though. I got mine for just over $100 from a stor doing a "Not selling guns anymore" sale. Would have bought the Hi-Point Rifle but I was low on cash thanks to my future ex-wife.

Casey, I didn't like the one that I owned because it didn't feel right to me when holding it. I will say though that they are very well built and you get very good quality for the money, so go ahead and check em out.

I had the High Point .45. Shot good, I run over a 100 rnds through it and never had a jamb. Only got rid of cause I traded it for a jet Ski.
