The 2nd pistol with the water drop design is cool as hell . Nice job who ever did that one :)
August 22, 2015 at 12:20 am
I have had one for about 5 years with no problems. I also have a 995 Carbine and no problems with it either.

It's not for me; I can't criticize the gun because I've never shot one, so I'll reserve judgment.

Hi point are definently a heavy gun but it will do the same as every other guna also so why does it mattwr if it cheap or not its a heavy shooting gun and good for protection

Custom grips, AlienGear IWB holster.
Main CCW weapon..

Bought a C9 and shot it along my MK25 sig. Neither had a malfunction of any kind

I have one, it was my first handgun. I also have a P89 Ruger as well as a Judge .357. I carry my hi point the most out of all of them. Im a big guy with big hands and this "big boxy gun" fits me just fine.

own a hi-point c9 ... have not had issues... would have preferred a sig saur or a glock but cannot afford that... this meets my needs for protection and for target practice, and with a lifetime no questions asked warranty 140 bucks was not bad... that included tax , a mag of hollow points , registration and background check... not a bad deal

I love hearing people talk out their ass about Hi Points. Is it heavy... yes, is it pretty...no, will it nail all day...absolutely. My.40 S&W isn't my conceal carry, it isn't even my primary handgun. it is however in my nightstand by my bed. It is a great home defender gun. Those in the know will tell you most gun fights happen within ten feet. having said that I have regularly taken my 40 out to 25 yards more than adequate for the purpose of home defense. Look it's cheap, its reliable, its accurate. What more do you want. If your basing the ability to protect yourself based on image or look, you have much bigger problems to worry about. If your looking for a good conceal carry, this is not for you, if you need something for a three gun shoot again not for you. But if you need something for quick and dirty, then trust me there is absolutely nothing wrong with this pistol.

I love my Model CF.380. It has a softer recoil then my little "Mini Hand Cannon" (NAA.22 mag wasp)... Even though I keep the wasp in my pocket for PP.....

ive got one that I keep in my tackle box and it's my go fishing POS beater gun now when I 1st got the gun it felt really clunky and it was hard to chamber the 1st round so I got some automotive sandpaper that was a 1000grit and 2000grit and I lightly polished the rails and the feedramp and if you plan on doing the same make sure you go slow and check your work alot the main thing was the feed ramp when I looked at it the ramp had alot of lines and it felt really rough to the touch so after the sandpaper I used a dremel with polishing compound and polished it till it was smooth now when I shoot it the gun it fires perfectly so it is what it is a really cheap ugly gun but with a little work it goes bang everytime.

FIRST Hi-points are made off the time proven BROWNING BLOW BACK design. you wont find anything MORE RELIABLE in a pistol, unless you want to step down to a revolver. So any moron who badmouths them has never spent any time shooting one with decent ammo. Overpriced doesn't mean better, and we have too damned many overpriced firearms on the market today. So when one comes about that is marketed without the BS and at a realistic price without profiteering involved the slandering fools spout off. Yes I shoot the big buck guns, My edc piece is worth almost 3 grand due to the custom work that was put in it. No I wouldn't carry a Hi-Point, WHY? it wont conceal well, but that doesn't mean it isn't dependable. Look at the cheap cars that are on the market... they go from point A to point B... they aren't luxury cars but they work, and serve their purpose, does that mean that since they cost under 20 grand they are junk? GROW UP and shoot a gun before you develop an opinion children. But better yet... wait until you are old enough to possess one before posting about imagining about shooting one!
Comment TWO: What's the deal? Hi-Points are supposed to be ugly! stop making them look good! And if you really want to make them look better, rework that magazine extension... that's the ugliest part!

Waste of time and money pot metal crap
I guess if someone payed a gunsmith enough I guess he could put custom graphics on a turd
February 17, 2013 at 10:04 pm
them guns got way more into the custom work then the price of the guns them self POS GUNS
February 17, 2013 at 10:06 pm
they do work even though it is like shooting a brick
February 17, 2013 at 8:42 pm
Like anything else it depends what your going to use it for. I prefer a Sig but for home protection I see nothin wroung with a Hi-Point.

I have a hi point 45 carbine.This thing eats everything. It never has jammed on me once. I have shot 2000 rounds or more..yes I agree the pistols have some problems, but look at the price. I would rather have that then nothing. The carbine though,I would bet my life on.
February 18, 2013 at 10:58 am
i have seen a high point 9 out shoot a glock 45, clip after clip and not jam once.
February 18, 2013 at 11:47 am
My buddies glock was all over the paper. Even on the vise. Sent it into glock .Sent it back the same ..
February 16, 2013 at 10:35 pm
no is my first choice but some look nice. good jab.

for all you haters out there, there are always personal tweeks and small custom changes that can be made to any gun by the owner to personalize it and increase accuracy and make the gun less likely to jam. with the hipoint you get what you pay for. its a little like a fixer upper. yeah you can move in and live there and even be comfortable but you have to put up curtains and paint the walls and maybe put in carpet and appliances. when I bought mine I had to adjust the feed on the magazines a little and I polished the feed ramp and I gave it a trigger job and changed out one spring to decrease the amount of force required to fire a round. yes in a more expensive gun you wouldn't have to do all that. but you have to pay for it in the price. so far I have fired 900 plus rounds out of my hipoint 9mm with only one jam and my accuracy is just fine. there is a lot of positive things that can be said about this gun as well as negative. but for the price it is well worth it. it fires every time. period.

Hi-point has stated that their goal is to make personal defense available to all law bidding citizens. And they succeed, they probably should spend more attention to educating the brand new buyer to some basics.....like don't overload the magazine, proper shooting methods (would address the limp wrist issue) and ammo selection. But if you use common sense and a little knowledge they could save you and your family.
February 16, 2013 at 7:48 pm
Sean Francisco, I hope you don't mind but I took a look at your FB page and am convinced you know a thing or two about personal defense. I was particularly impressed with your personal quotes that would imply rational behavior as a means of not having to use a side arm, but if you need one to be prepared. I value this point of view for its common sense approach which unfortunately so few gun owners show today. I'm not saying they don't have common sense they simply fail to use it, especially when speaking on gun control.Statements that infer violent action in defense of ones right to own a firearm only serve to convince those who oppose gun ownership that there is a reason to fear us that value our rights provoking them to act even stronger to oppose us.
Now to my real reason for responding I own and value my Hi-point C-9 because though I am trained and for many years owned some fine firearms at this point in my life my interest is in self defense of my home and family. I'm on a limited budget due to the current economy and I don't have any intentions of carrying concealed. My priorities is for reliable handguns (more than one) that myself and my wife are able to access easily and know they will fire if needed. I find Hi-point fits this bill perfectly. An intruder will not run away because you wave a layaway slip at him and tell him you are saving up for a higher priced gun. My advice to anyone is to buy the you can afford take it to the range put a hundred rounds through it (don't overload the mag leave 1 round out) if you are happy good, if not start saving at that point. I would value your opinion as someone in the industry on your views on this. Thanks

I still haven't seen the one Hi-Point mod I think should be a factory item: Dovetail slots milled into the side of the slide for "Homeboy-style" sights.

hey this was about the Hi-point gun not the gun control every body is entitled to an opinion I sell guns for a living the Hi-point is a 50/50 gun its either you hate it or you like it, if its the only gun left on the planet oh yah ill own one I have tested one side by side with glocks and sigs the hipoint went up to 821 rounds before some thing broke that's a lot of rounds stil,its a buy it shoot it and put it away for emergency gun , but that's the reason I don't own one I shoot a lot.

To each their own... They're American made and I can respect that. The ergos, style, and overall engineering leave much to be desired though, IMO. The first thing that pops into my mind is "Putting lipstick on a pig"... That's not nice though, I know. I like their carbines and I don't know anyone who has trouble with their Hi Point, so I should bite my tongue... Especially since black, ugly, tactical guns are "The thing" these days.... Eh... really it's cool! It's making something different out of something different and it's helping another aspect of the firearms industry... So forgive me for my rudeness and lack of understanding..
February 16, 2013 at 5:33 pm
Good for a truck gun. Some love them, others hate them. I bought one several years back because I though it was interesting. Never had any problems with it, but definitely not my go to, or my daily carry. Figure I can use it as a barter item in a SHTF scenario. If it was all I could afford, I'd save up and buy something a bit better to save myself from the embarrassment of owning one for my primary defense.
