    FINALLY.

    And I only got to throw 100 rounds downrange because I got there just before they closed.

    One fail-to-feed on the first round of a magazine. I think the feed ramp on this gun is really steep and not very slick, and the mags are not real high quality. Still, for a $130 gun, 99% out of the box is hardly disappointing.

    16 rounds into target at 7 yards. Keeping in mind I'm not such a great shooter, I'm pretty happy to see it shoot this well (with no sight adjustment!). Seems very accurate. It's also very comfortable to hold, and the felt recoil is noticeably lighter than a Glock 19.

    My only complaint is the trigger which is pretty rough and heavy and would benefit ergonomically from being wider. But I'm not spoiled in that respect by "quality" guns, and to its credit it does break very crisply.

    Cool. I know everyone knocks Hi-points (except the log of shit looking carbine) so its nice to hear something good about it.
    Break out the dremel and polish that feed ramp. jewelers rouge works well. It might help a little. :)

    Damn, that's an ugly gun. But it was cheap, so you can't really expect much.

    there are guns that cost as much that look twice as ugly.

    function over beauty

    I would pay a little more for an uglier gun if it gave me the piece of mind that it is going to fail when I need it.

    I don't know why anyone would buy the 380. It costs practically the same as the 9mm Luger version, maybe $20 less if that much...

    That slide looks like it weighs 20 pounds :big grin: I wonder if some feed ramp polishing would help feeding. Its not a sig, but I think hi-point is still a big step about lorcin and jennings.
