bout 12 yrs ago i bought a hi point 40 s&w full size. shot a few hundred shells out of it...was good gun. traded it to my brother for a marlin golden 22. he shot the high point with accuracy that was scary as hell. after a few yrs he asked if he could trade it back for the marlin and being his older brother and kinda feeling bad about taking advantage of him on the first trade i let him have the marlin back. shot it for another yr or so without having any problems then sold it to a friend for about half of what i paid origanlly. far as i know its still slinging lead down range with no problems....have had more expensive guns that didnt have near the accuracy or problem free times. so hi point is a good starter weapon or if its all you can afford go for it.
...Wildly popular all over the world, mostly in countries where people don’t carry guns, and cops don’t have to actually shoot people with theirs.
