Need help on a decsion

OK folks, I need some help. I can get either a hi point c9 9mm or a rossi m68 from interarms. I know the track record for the hi point but i know nothing about rossi. the rossi looks new passes the check out i found on this forum and it shoots good, i put 15 rounds through it yesterday. What im not sure about is how this will hold up to a lot of shooting, i will be shooting an average of 500 to 600 rounds a year. are there any members that can offer any insite thanks.

I've got a Rossi 88 (the stainless version of the 68) that I've had for 20 years. I've run thousands of rounds thru it, mostly mid range wadcutters and it's as tight today as it was when I got it. I'd lean toward the Rossi.

I should think so. When I was carrying mine I usually loaded it with the old federal Nyclad HP. Those are probably loaded a little hotter.
