    I know of a guy that bought one used and ran 100 rounds of 45 Super through it right away without a hiccup.

    These things are built like tanks and they are as heavy as tanks too.

    I am puzzled.

    Don't get me wrong, I like and appreciate Hi-points...

    I just can't figure if that looks good or not (it definitely doesn't look worse!).

    Either way, I like it.

    I think they're extremely ugly and top heavy. But I will say in their defense my buddy had one in .380 ACP that he picked up at a pawn for $50. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned in 30 years but it rocked through about 400 rounds the first day out between the two of us and didn't have one issue except for being slightly off on aim. That was without cleaning it first by the way.

    If it works, it's a good gun. I paid almost five times that for a "pretty" handgun that choked on the second round ever fired through it and broke several parts, so I won't make any disparaging remarks ... :uhoh:

    Congrats on the new pistol. My neighbor has a 9mm that works fine.
    Not the prettiest pistol out there but if it works that is all that matters.

    Cool! I have a regular black 45 and I've always liked the way it shoots. Makes a good truck or bedside gun although I will admit to carrying it on occasion as well.

    Cool, would you say it has more recoil than my 40 caliber Hi Point semi? I haven't shot the 45acp Hi Point yet, wondering since the two pistols are so close in weight if there would be much difference? Ive shot both calibers before, but in completely different platforms, Glock 22, Kimber Custom II.

    IMO The above post = pointless.

    I think you'll like the .45 ACP better than the .40 cal. It hasn't really mattered what gun I've shot, the .40 vs the .45 always gives me the same result in feel. .40 = snappy; .45 = smooth and heavy. That .40 is loaded to a much higher pressure to make it's lighter bullet impact at a similar energy so it will have more of a snap.

    I think it's the ugliest damned thing I ever saw. But hey, I'm a Glock guy, so what do I know about pertty?

    I'll take bang every time over pertty.

    It's ugly, but if it works well, that's great. Let's face it: survival and winning aren't always pretty.

    Yes, of coarce. Same as my C9 9mm and Jcp 40.


    JCP 40=over 200 rounds still no fail to feeds or ejects

    C9 9mm= over 500 rounds and only two fail to feeds(right after I bought it new)no fail to ejects.

    Also, they are not traditional fail to feeds, it is just basically the slide not returning with enough force(needed a light push).

    Works flawlessly nowdays(both).

    And I am guessing the smooth 45acp ball ammo will work better feeding than the sometimes flatnose 40 caliber rounds.

    If it functions and shoots well it is worth every cent (in trade). Congrats, I think it is a great pistol for the money. Scaning a highpoint is just classic.

    If it's comfortable and shoots well for you, great, glad you're happy with your gun. Personally, I could not get over the weight and the balance on the Hi Point line when I shot one. But that's why there's so many types of guns, because not everyone likes the same things. Have fun with it.

    Geez......

    19 minutes after you posted you're miffed because people aren't falling all over themselves to make comments on your posting? Not that you even asked for any.

    You have a serious impatience issue.

    :cool:

    I have to admit, I am not a fan of the looks. ( I like CZ/ BHP style guns)

    But the green gives it that little something. Enough I kinda want one. ( I like odd guns)

    btw, nice scan, surprised that worked.
