I would like to buy 2 guns for me and one for my son. im interested in a smaller lighter gun. and for a pretty cheap price. probably less than 250.00. anyone have expierence with the highpoint? or anyother guns for a good price. let me know thanks.
i havent shot one before, but at the last gunshow i handled a few to see what they were like... and in all honesty they feel like a toy that wouldnt take the abuse of a lot of shooting... they are so darn cheap because they are made of cheap materials... however i do believe that they have a lifetime warrenty on them so when they do break you could just send it in for a new one... so if you are going to do a lot of shooting, i would go with something a little more solid... however if you are just going to use them for plinking every now and then i would say go for it and tell us how they do... at around 100 bucks can you really go wrong
you have any gun shows coming up? i found that's a pretty good place to look for things like that... other than that you can try an online store if you know for sure what you want... however if you are going that route its always nice to be friends with someone with a ffl... that way you dont get charged extra for that too...
Well i decided to go with the hi point but i cant decide over the C-9 or 380.ACP , the c-9 is 9x19 and the 380 ACP is 9x17. there isnt much difference. which one do yall recommend. this is just going to be used for a home saftey.
the .380 is a lighter bullet than the 9mm. I would look at used guns anyway. I bought a ruger 9mm at a reputable gun shop and I doubt it had a whole clip run through it just because it belonged to a parole officer. Like auto mobiles if your going to own several shop for them and you may find you can find some pretty good deals on 9mm handguns for under $300 that are quality handguns. Here in town we have a gun shop that also deals with the local police departments and they handle police trade ins. Most of the handguns I have looked at have been used on a range for qualification and little else so they are like new....and I can tell you this that law enforcement people keep thier sidearms in great shape. My advice to anyone looking for any new firearm is never buy a shotgun during bird season, never buy a big game rifle during deer and elk season, and when it comes to handguns take your time and shop because the deal that fits your pocket book is out there and for a firearm that will rarely see 1000 rounds a year you will be better off.
I know you said 9mm, but have you thought about .38? I picked up 2 used smith .38's for $175 each from a local gun shop that I deal with. They are old police guns. Generally speaking police guns are usually a little worn but mechanically they are good. The police armor keeps everyone guns working properly.
I will give you my opinion also. Personally, I would never buy a low quality gun. There is too much that could go wrong. And I don't think I could live with my self if I gave the gun to my son and something happened. Ruger is not the coolest looking gun in the world but it is a great gun. You should be able to find a used glock for $300 to $350 and new ones run from $425 to $550.
I guess it doesn't really matter what you get. But get a gun that is going to best fit your need. If you dont plan to shot but a couple times a year then go with a cheaper one (not what I recommend) but if you are going to shoot alot get something that is better quality.
If its not to late no offense but i think that high point looks pretty bad. Althouh its 45 ACP this is a nice gun. Just go to this site and the opening video is about it. I believe it passed the Glock Test but with more rounds fired.
