    How many rounds have you guys shot through your hi points before noticing any flaws? Thanks

    I have never counted, but someone posted a while back that the HP barrel would handle 5000 rds before a FREE replacement? But I'm not paying much attention to that. I'm 58 years old and have NEVER fired 5000 rds of bullets in my life, so I have nothing to worry about!

    Most go THOUSANDS, and the main things are firing pins.
    It is a simple but well made system. HP says do a complete
    tear down and cleaning at 1500 rounds, is that right guys?
    Runs Good, Dirty ;)

    If his glock is jamming that much, tell him to clean it and stop limp wristing. I Clean every gun I shoot, every time I shoot it. It doesn't matter if I only fire one round through it.

    I told him to clean it up. He wont do it. So i busted my cleaning kit out and did it for him. Now it looks great and shoots great. Hes an idiot. I should have offered him money for it but im not a glock man
     
  10. The Glock 19, was the first handgun I shot, as an adult. As a kid, I shot a .22 revolver. I rented a Glock 19, S&W Classic 1911 .45 and a S&W 686 in .38 Special. My Hi-Point C9 is SO EASY to shoot - I love it! I found the Glock to be snappy, with a lot of muzzle flip - nice gun overall, but I prefer shooting my C9. The S&W .45 though, was a beautiful gun to shoot and to look at!

    I'm a big fan of the JHP .45 even if it looks like a cordless drill. On a practical note, people who have problems with recoil due to physical ailments such as arthritis should look at the H-P .380. It's about as close as you can come to a recoil-free ceterfire pistol.

    Well into the thousands. I always inspect my barrels for pits and etc, and they all look good. The worse of the bunch in my Mosin-Nagant, but then it's been around since 1942. Still shoots like a dream.
