Hmm, just wondering since ive heard the Hi Point 380 is more reliable than the 9mm, I have had two fail to feeds but it still needs a good break in.

They are both reliable. With some c9's you have to teak the mag lips and polish the feed ramp, but other than that, they are both very relaible pistols.

As far as powerful, the 9mm is the more powerful.

Well I was, because if it is stronger for it's size than I would trade it for the 380, even pay a few more bucks for ammo if it runs smoother. Just wondering.

The Hipoint 9mm and the .380 are the same size. They just take different ammo.

I know, let my try to explain: I was thinking, which one is ''big stuff in a small package''?

well ya the c9 and the 380 are the same size.. aparently only the slide is a tad bit lighter..

they use the same magazines even.

.380 is also referred to as 9mm short.. it's 9x17mm

9mm is 9x19mm.. so yes get more bang out of the 9mm it's only 2mm longer.

if you're wanting to buy a hi-point c9 or a 380 then go with the c9 since it's cheaper to shoot. more powerful.. virtually the same shape and weight.

OK. Now I understand. The C9 is the big stuff in the small package. Ammo's a lot cheaper too, as Joe said.
