Default Hi Point vs Glock, Smith & Wesson

I went out Sunday for some target practice with a friend. I had my C9 and JCP 40, friend had his Glock 9mm and S&W 44 mag. My friend was impressed that the Glock was no better shooting than the HPs. If only the Hi Points had the capacity of the Glock. The funny thing is I was most accurate with the 44mag hand cannon. go figure FYI, I was shooting Blazer Brass in the 9mm & 40, had no jams or FTF.

Does the .44 have a longer barrel?

.44 Magnum is such an outstanding cartridge, i've loved em in whatever i load them into... a buddy had a brace of them. There is nothing like two-handed, hammer-yanking fun when the .44's start blazing!

Glad to hear your HP's held their own in such good company!

The 44 does have a longer barrel, 6" I believe. I was still surprised how good I could shoot with it beings it is not mine and being such a large gun/caliber. It also is so different to hold compared to a semi-auto. I would like to try a 50 cal, heard the recoil on them is less than the 44.

some a better with revos, some with autos. i am an auto man, and cant hit much of anything with a revo. as for accuracy you have to shoot a glock alot to be proficent IME. its not a natural pointer like a 1911 or other browing degins are. you must learn to shoot a glock if you are used to other pistol designs.

My buddy got a new Smith and Wesson .38 a little over a year ago and I was never very good at hitting anything with that. When we took my .45 Hi Point out for the very first time, he agreed with me that it is easier to hit the target with the Hi point.

At best, I'm equally mediocre with both... so is that like being ambidexrous? :blink:
