    Looking to buy a "toy" just to play around with. The price seems right, and it looks like something that would be fun to play around with at the range.

    thanks in advance.

    More dangerous to you than it is the thing your shooting at.

    Now from someone who actually owned 2 of them. Cheap price, easy to maintain, never had 1 jam in over 5000 rounds and pretty damn accurate. I had 9mm models and wouldn't mind buying a .40. There are two types of people here. Those that think they are pure junk, and those that have shot them. Only thing I didn't like was that they take proprietary 10 round magazines so there aren't any aftermarket hi caps available.

    The original Hi Points were pure crap when it came to pistols but the carbine design worked great. They were bought out by the new owners and completely redesigned and retooled. (basically they ended up just buying the name) Their new pistols are much better. They come with a lifetime guarantee, can and do handle +P+ ammo and while still cheap in price, the function is reliable and accurate.

    Here's a link to another board where someone asked the same question.

    My Dad has one. He put a little cheap red-dot on it and it is a bunch of fun to shoot. Not to mention that it works, or has worked with any ammo we've thrown through it. A pain to clean though.

    Snobs will up their nose at them, but realisticly, people who've shot and owned them have good things to say about a cheap, reliable carbine.

    Hi-Point carbines are good stuff. I wouldn't trust a pistol further than I could throw it, but from the 2 carbines I've fired, I've not seen a problem.

    $500 for a Beretta or $200 for a Hi-Point? Hmm... Both are impractical, so why not go with the cheap one?
