That price is very good! I paid the equivalent of 350 dollars for a 9mm Star where I live.
Fear and bullets.

I think he'll give the Hi-Point a fair shake, but it's really a no-lose situation for the Hi-Point fans. If it dies, well, no one really expected more. If he does well with it, then Hi-Point fanboys will cite the experiment for the next 50 years, not without justification.
So far, what he's found out is that:
1. The sights on the Hi-Point are painted with contrasting colors of enamel, and they're actually easy to pick up. Point to Hi-Point.
2. His scale measures the trigger at 10 pounds and change. Ouch to Hi-Point.
Yeah.. the C-9 sights are actually really easy to spot, but the trigger is a bit of a bear for competition. C-9 can be a real picky eater as well. I love mine, but I think I reviewed it pretty fairly. Not high-end equipment.
i will be watching this eagerly. I actually looked for longitudinal data on Hi-point reliability, but the opinions are far too polarized to be taken seriously.
I think I'll start a thread about testing my C9 as well.
And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

Well, Justin is a fairly serious competitor by my standards, and he loads his own 9mm. He says he will work up a competition load for the Hi-Point just as he would for his CZ (another gun with a reputation for puking) and we'll see what happens. Maybe there's a load that the Hi-Point will love.

Federal FMJ has been 100% problem free with mine. But finding a hollow point hat is reliable has been tricky.

Ruger PC-9, (9mm) PC-4 (.40S&W) and Mini-14 (.223)
A little pricier that Scrapper's gun, but without the pistol grip they are Cali legal.

Also, these guys:
Sell the 995 with a "bullet button", which makes the gun Cali legal because it takes a tool (in this case a bullet) to remove the mag, thus defeating the Cali "assault weapon" definition!

Where did you get the price quotes you used? Checking the Hi-point website the TSFG has a MSRP of 297.. I'd love to only spend 220 on it.

purchased at Cabela's in East Hartford CT. 219.99 + tax.
Cabela's website lists them at 249.99, but mine was on sale. If you shop around, you can find them. Even gunbroker has them going for 209.
Never pay MSRP for a gun.

Thanks scrapper! I am heading out to the store right now on lunch to see if they have any used / on sale. I want this gun so bad.
