Hi everyone, Bought this HP .40 over 8 yrs ago and it's been sitting in a nightstand all these years. Took it to the range and fired over 200 rounds with NO issues! Ammo was just as old also! No oil or lubrication anywhere on the the gun also. Got home, cleaned and oiled it. Can't wait to see how it shoots next time out with it serviced properly. My wife also shot it but it's a little heavy for her of course. A 9mm was also to tough for her too, so we bought her a new Walther P22. It should be more suited to her hands as well as being a good choice for the CC class we will be taking shortly together. No complaints at all with my .40! I will definitely by another Hi Point very soon since we are getting into the gun hobby more and more. Nick.
