Welcome I use anything to shoot I can get. The only thing I would do is polish the feed ramp going in to the barrel.

Hi guys ! Well, my buddy from work and I went and did some target practice and it worked flawlessly. He has a Springfield Armory XDs and he liked the Hi Point and thought it to be just as good as his. In fact, we both noticed that his XD seemed to have more recoil to it than the Hipoint. Call me crazy, but I like the feel of the Hipoint better as well as the less recoil. Looks like I got a good one. I wore ear plugs, but I was still surprised at how loud these things are, ha ha ! I tried Federal and some PPU rounds and they fired just fine. It was a good experience to have and I plan to still take a safety course. The funny thing is, now that I'm getting used to this again after 8 years, I don't really see myself as doing this very often or becoming a die hard enthusiast, the way I am with cars, lol. But all the more reason that I think that Hi Point is a great choice for people like me who are first time gun owners and don't know much about them or have much to spend. We were both very impressed with the solid feel of it. This thing lives up to the good reviews ! I still hope to get one for my wife in the future and we take a safety course together.. Thanks for all of your helpful input guys, this is a good forum to be part of ! :)

Probably the heavy slide on the HP.


You have probably already noticed that the HP trigger is long and heavy on the pull. (unless they've made changes since I got mine?

With several thousand rounds through min, the trigger (and in fact, entire action of the gun) has gotten noticebly better.
When I got mine, I sat in front of the TV for nights (up-loaded of course) and just repeatedly pulled the trigger to "wear it in". This resulted in much smoother action. Now at this point, it ain't half bad.

On a different note, I did finally order a "joey keychain" trigger the other day that should be here on Wed.

also worth noticing the XDs is an entirely different animal. the xd single stack was made to slip in a pocket or inside the pants holster. its about half the weight of the c9. but it doesnt make nearly as good of a club after you run out of ammo. the xd series of pistols are military grade poly framed with crisp triggers. smooth actions. and from what i can tell extreme durability. the hi point is an unrefined gun that serves one purpose well. self defense. you arent gonna strap it to your ankle as your backup pistol. its made well and excells as a glove box gun. a nightstand gun. and perhaps an open carry gun. its not meant to be a ccw weapon. although some do it. a full size xd pistol is more comparable to the hi point although at that point its really apples to oranges as you can buy two hi points for the price of one xd. but still have the same round count

id love to collect all the hi point pistols because as you noted they are a pleasure to shoot. so far i only have tye c9 and 995

Yeah and after doing some thinking, the Hi Point makes for a good gateway gun too. Since my last post, I haven't done any more target practice but I've gotten to thinking that maybe I'd like to be able to get a few more like a Ruger P95 or S& W SDVE9 also 9mm and a Mossberg shotgun. I guess maybe I'm getting bitten by the bug after all, ha ha.
