Always heard they were trash, but after reading some of these responses I think I'll find one to try it.

I'm saying for a plinker fine, if there was a remote chance of self defense then hell no. Its no different then buying anything else thats cheap. They may be fun, but get something reliable and trust worthy first. Cheap toys second. Hi-points are a bad idea for a first line life saving tool.

I have a highpoint 9mm plinker firearm. It is NOTHING special but fun to shoot as well as home defense or the like. I also have 6 mags for it. Here is a pic of the gun: not my pic

I love mine. I ordered the muzzle brake and a extra mag. Got it last Christmas. The red dot scope is awesome.

I have one with a BSA red dot scope and its accurate at 50 yards. I have 10 mags loaded with Hornady Tap 147gr.

I dont know if I would carry the thing to battle but I would trust my life to it any day of the week.

My last round I shot, at about 50 yrds. Broke a tree limb sticking out of the water that was the size of my pinky finger. Pretty damn good in my book.

I call the carbine "Baracuda" because she's as pretty as Sarah Palin.

At least my cat likes them!

I find it funny the people who dont own one hate it. The people who own and shoot them love them. For 150 bucks used it is a great firearm they are a great stockpile weapon, pluss the new fatory stock is going to be freaking sweet. now that being said dont be tempted to buy the pistols i havent had good luck with them.

I agree!! If you don't own it, or have experience shooting it, nobody cares whether you wouldn't trust your life to it and congratulations on your expensive weapon collection.. I've seen lots of AR owners who can't shoot their way out of a paper bag that I can outshoot with an SKS and crappy Wolf ammo.. The High Point isn't meant to be a long range rifle and for what it's intended purpose is, appears to do the job perfectly, according to actual owners of the gun..

I've seen many more good reviews by owners of this gun than bad ones.. I'm considering one for my trunk in 40 S&W.. At the very least, it's like having the firepower of a SUPER accurate hand gun.

My dad has one, LOVES it! We both have .45 ACP's and they always go bang when you pull the trigger. Its heavy sure but I am 6'6" so I actually like the way it feels. Most of the people on this forum would probably be ****ing themselves if they started getting shot at so it really doesn't matter what they have in their hands.

From the experiences with them No matter how may times you pull the trigger it is still going to fire. Ive never had one jam on me yet. I would highly recommend them for the prices.

im glad you posted negativley, so there isnt %100 good reviews on it. lol.

it also shows how actual owners love them and are witness to its reliability. while the haters are almost exclusivley high end gun collectors that have heard from a friend of a friend that hi-points suck.

i own a 995. i love that thing, its the shortest gun i own, its been totally reliable for me and it is acurate too. do i think its the best gun on the planet?? of course not. but its a tremendous value. fun for the whole family to shoot. and i would use mine for home defense in a heartbeat.

mine is my girlfriends primary weapon should the stool hit the rotating blades.
