i have had 2 different highpoint firearms both handguns 9mm now and a 45 earlier i am disabled and my 9mm is trustworthy to me so was the ,45 because i have a bad hand the 9 is easier. my friend bought my ,45 and loved it, its all about what fits the need

I just ordered the C-9. Can anyone tell me if it can be a carry gun. The guy at my gun store said it is very chunky. I am not taking his word for it beacause he wanted to sell me something much more expensive.

I just bought 1 of these Hi_Points with the compressor and it came with a 8&10 rnd mag. Life time warr. all for under a buck 90. So I take it to the range today, put 100 rnds through it. Let me tell you this ..... it well exceded my expectations in all areas, with special credit for its accuracy right out of the box. Two thumbs up! Oh and by the way I do own a few handguns,ones of much higher value too, my hat still goes off to this piece pound for pound.

I forgot, I wanted to answer FamilyProtectors question. In my opinion the HP C9 or HPs other handguns are really not a conceal carry piece(s), it is somewhat bulky. I would reccomend other handguns for ccw.

Two Thumbs Up! Great Gun for the $$. Out of the box accuracy gets honorable mention. This gun performed just as good if not better then some of my more expensive ones. It comes with the 8&10 round mags and a no questions asked 100% warranty. All this for under $180.00. Some say you get what you pay for ... I say it only takes a buck to hit the lottery. The HP is inexpensive .. but Not Cheap!

Anybody know what is the best type of amo to use with this gun so that it doesnot jam. From what I understand this is a very reliable gun if the correct ammo is used.

I have used Independance for 4000 rounds now with minimal jamming (only caused by a sticky feed ramp, which I fixed by polishing it). I have tried Winchester White Box and Wolf with dissapointing results. Id recommend CCI Blazer Brass or Independance. Both are cheap and easy to find!

Wanted a concealed carry gun, didnt want to spend a lot of money and didnt want the issues that can come with a used gun. paid $202.00 for c9, holster, and box of bullets. first shot out of the box was a center in the X ring on a silohuette target at about 20 yds went ahead and shot the whole box without one shot any further out than 7, even at 30 yds. as far as carry I bought a bagmaster holster made for a glock, Im a big guy and this is the most comfortable gun Ive worn concealed. Its cheap,accurate,comfortable and reliable whats wrong with that?

Oh and the gunsmith at the range told me it probably would not last more than 200,000 rounds, well I doubt I will either!

I shot these guns over the last three years and have put 1000s of rounds through my 9 mm. with out failure. I will say that on the 45 the ears on the clip got bent and caused some bad feeds but once adjusted no problems. I agree they are a ugly gun but Ive always believed in function before form.
