    Just was flipping through the news adds and found a new High Point 9mm for $110 dollars. Comparing the new price ($155.00) to the one in the paper, I thought it was a rather good deal. What I'm wondering is, what's the quality of the High Point handguns, the accuracy, and if they are good for a tight-budget-automatic shooter. Thanks for y'alls help.

    **Not to mention I'm a beginner to automatics, but am seasoned to shooting revolvers.

    I have a C9 myself. The quality isn't perfect, my pistol has a few rough spots here and there, but nothing major and nothing affecting function. Accuracy was pretty good, though I've only had about 150 rounds through it. I think its a good range gun, nothing fancy is needed to throw lead downrange.

    I have heard some people using it as a CCW, though I haven't had mine long enough to trust it that much.

    That is a pretty good price, I paid $156 out the door for mine.

    I have had nothing but poor at best experience with hi-point others have faired much better. I would recomend saving another hundred and look for some thing better.

    For that price I would get it. If it doesn't function properly you can send it back and they'll fix the problem. I wouldn't recommend it as an only gun though. I have the hipoint 45 and found it to be a great value for the money.

    They are what they are... a cheap gun with a good warranty. I own one. It lives in my locked car. My good and more expensive guns live in the house in the locked safe. I carry a more expensive gun when I think I will be going in an area where it is remotely possibly that a gun may be needed. I keep the Hi-Point in the car for the same reason I keep a spare tire in the car, you never know when you may need it so it is always there.

    I haven't fired this one much but is has been accurate and dependable so far. The first one I bought was back before the Klinton presidency (spit!) and, as far as I know, it is still going strong (I gave it to my brother YEARS ago after I shot it for several years myself).

    Never shot one myself, but the carbine is supposed to be fun, and the pistols are Big, Ugly, and mostly reliable.

    Made in Mansfield, Ohio. Ugly as sin, but everything I've heard of late says they're reliable out of the box, accurate, and the best value in ugly guns.

    This is a biggie for an under $200 gun. Many of the $1000 guns don't have that.

    Look at it this way: The cost of the gun is two, maybe three tanks of gas, and will last a lot longer, and be a lot more fun. :D

    Hey, I paid almost nine times that for one handgun and it still would not function. :rolleyes: If I needed a gun and a Jackson and a Grant were all the money I had, without question I would get a Hi-Point.

    C9's are OK but I like the .40 and .45 large frame better.

    I have a C9 & have had only good times with it. I paid $130.00 out the door new & they threw in a box of ammo, this was a couple of years ago. $110.00 is a real bargin. Thinking about picking up the carbine, Dunham Sports has been running them @ $159.00. A good value, the perfect range gun, I'd buy another in a heartbeat. NRA PATRON LIFE MEMBER
