Have any of you seen the new HI POINT 40 and 45??? I seen and held one today and was just wanting some input on over all thoughts about them. I read the article in Shooting Times the other day and that is what got my interest sparked....they are only $180.00 and I have always been on the thinking side of ...you get what you pay for....is this the case here or do you get more than your money's worth with these autoloaders? Thanks for your input.
Hi-Points are you get what you pay for. I've shot a couple of there guns that other people owned. They are just awful. My nephew has one, and you'd be lucky to hit a 9" paper plate at 7yds. Had a student in one of my CCW classes that brought a Hi-Point in .45ACP out to the range to shoot the qualifier. Bullets were impacting 6" below his point of aim! IMO Hi-Points are the low point of firearm technology.

My experience with the Hi-Point is far different from Renegades. My son bought one CHEAP and we put it through the mill. It functioned flawlessely through 200 rds. Flawlessely! Accuracy was very good. Trigger was acceptable(??)
Do I recommend them? Not if you can obtain a better made firearm. After dismembering the pistol for cleaning I have to say I don't think it will be very durable.
It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it
First post here and I too went through the debate of buying a High Point. My dad owns a 9mm, my uncle and cousing the 40's. I have shot all 3 and the only thing I didn't like was the size and wieght of the 3. I know exactly what is going through your mind. $180 looks good. I have heard both sides, good and bad. I went agianst the good not relying on bad's either and bout a Taurus. My advice is if you can afford a better named gun go for it. If you can only afford a High Point then go for it. It's better than nothing. Just keep it maintained and you should have no problems. If so....send it back. It should come with a nice warrenty policy. Keep us posted.
