I know you feel like guys are talking down to you but they are just tying to bestow some good advice. Hi point is junk warranty or not, if your comfortable carrying junk then go ahead a buy it that is totally your choice. It is really hard to compare a fishing rod to a firearm esp when one is purely for enjoyment and pleasure and the other is well a means by which to defend yourself and your new wife. I don't see anyone recommending a Springfield or kimber or anything that will out a serious dent in your pocket plenty of good wheelies and semi's out there under the 400/500 price tag that will serve you for a lifetime. Guys are just trying to stear you away from making a purchase you will later on regret. Spend 200 bucks on a hi point hate it then spend 400/500 on something decent now your looking at 600/700 alone. When you could just spend the 400/500 off the bat. Just guys trying to be helpful. That's all
insert witty saying here
time enjoyed wasted is not wasted time
Glock 27 or a Kahr CW9 for carry is what I like.
I've done research on these things and from what I have read hi point is not as bad as what people generally say. Excepting that they are heavy and ugly. It would be a terrible business decision to offer a product with a transferable lifetime no questions warranty on something that will break constantly.
While not as nice as a glock its functional. If I found a good used gun that is not a hi point I'd take it. I'm asking if people have Anything to sell or trade, not asking what is the best pistol for me to buy.
Go to Florida gun trader. For a good priced hand gun, your about two month late.Also you can go to Walmart and pick up a $10.00 zebco and compare to a nice stradic. Take the advice from the people who shoot and carry guns everyday. " never take a knife to a gun fight,unless the other guy has a high point"
The only people who will say anything good about a high point are usually people that bought them and don't know any better.
He's trying to help you avoid a mistake...and he happens to be right. If you want, you can ignore him. Gunbroker, GlockTalk, AR15.com and florida Arms trader.com all have classified forums that are easily the best place to look for deals...even cheap pistols if it blows your hair back.
I carry a Glock 27 or Taurus TCP everday. The Glock is great when I have clothes that allow me to conceal a little easier, untucked shirt etc. I use an in-the-waistband style holster and it is very comfortable. The TCP is great anytime I need to tuck it in a pocket. I have a pocket holster that conceals well and is comfortable. Just do some research and find the carry weapon that suits you the best.
I bought 2 highpoints and sold both of them within a month. The guns misfired frequently. I also read and was told they aren't that bad, but mine were. I paid 300 for a Kel tec and no problems, also see them often used around 250. I have bought lots of guns in my life and never lost money on any of them besides the Hi points.
