    Hey everyone. I just discovered the site and wanted to join. Over the last month, I have purchased two Hi-Point pistols. The .40 SW (34010) as a graduation present for my step-son and the Hi-Point CF-380 that I purchased today for my wife.

    I, myself, am a Glock fan and my CC weapon of choice is the Glock 23. Now, I am no snob and I won't look down on or judge anyone for the choice of weapon.

    I have been reading about the Hi-Point for weeks now and, to be honest, the prices of the weapons have been their major draw for me. I got the .40 from a pawn shop for about $175 out the door. I got the CF-380 from Gander Mountain with a holster, one box of Sig Sauer ball ammo, and one box of Hornaday hollow points for $212 total. The pistol was $149.

    I got home and my wife immediately put 8 rounds through hers, she allowed me to squeeze off the first one, and I do have to say that I was impressed with the weapon. It felt solid in my hand, fired easily, and I really wanted one of my own. On my next payday, I will be going back to Gander Mountain to get the CF-9 for myself and I'm going to be asking for the 995TS carbine for my Christmas present.

    I really think that Hi-Point has gotten an unfair reputation and I certainly plan to buy at least two more weapons.

    Anyway, just wanted to get that out there.

    Roll Tide.
