I stopped defending them years ago. The local Pawn shop had a pair of C9's for $200 and a JHP for $275 last Month. I showed the owner that he could buy new ones for less than that and these three were all well used. I was in there Friday and all three had been sold. Now he has a 995 Carbine for $325, but said he already has a deposit to hold it.

Almost makes me want to sell one of mine. I bought my guns new. I bought my C9 for $99, and my JHP and both 995 and 4095 for $119 each.

Remember Old or New Hi-Point has a life time guarantee that follows the gun. Old or New you can get it serviced at their cost. So buy one old or new.

I paid $159 for my JHP and am paying $149 for my C9 and consider both money well spent. I hope I enjoy the 9mm as much as the .40 cal. I have a Ruger SP101 .357 mag that USED to be my weapon of choice. If the C9 performs as well as the JHP, it will be my carry weapon.

My wife carries the C9. She is small in stature and finds the recoil substantially less than her M&P or my Glock 26. She also likes that it has a real safety that she can operate when she feels the need to have one chambered.

Funny thing is the M&P is her duty gun and is lighter in weight and a smaller imprint, but the C9 is always on the nightstand.

BK, I have heard that some retailers put a heavy markup on Hi-Points so they can stear their customers to a more mainstream weapon. Its one of those "For a few bucks more you can get..." tactic. Hi-Point is a good gunfor the real price. They put a $275 price on it to push another $50 bucks to get a Ruger or such.



I own Sigs, 1911, Bersa, and Rugers. I have the HP 45 on my nightstand.

Take a look at the video link for the C9 9mm in this directory. It shows a Hi Point C9 getting TOTALLY trashed (getting thrown from a truck, run over by said truck, beaten and abused, having spent rifle shells and BOLTS driven into it's barrel and STILL performs as intended!!! I will continue to buy more Hi Points. The C9 9mm in a week and the .45 cal shortly after. Raise your Hi Points PROUDLY!

Purchased a Hi-Point 45 2 weeks ago and just took it to the range this weekend. I was very impressed with the accuracy and functionality of this weapon. Is it as nice as my H&K 45 Compact ? No, but for the price compared to the H&K, you cannot go wrong. Put 100 rounds through it and it never gave me a problem. Some have complained about the smoothness of the grip, but I did not have this issue. Maybe if you have a smaller hand it would pose a problem as it is a very large framed pistol. I would definetly reccomend this firearm to anyone interested in a value priced ,USA made pistol.

I ran an additional couple of boxes through my Hi Point .40 cal on Friday. Absolutely flawless ! I love this firearm.
