So I purchased a Hi-Point .40S&W, first of all was for the price, as of right now finances suck.. I read and googled reviews, and forums. I got goods and bad about the gun. Its ugly, its heavy, its not a brand name, waste of money.. Well I'm going to tell all, the handgun fires fantastically, minimal recoil, and accurate and no FTF at all. I've shot and owned glocks, S&W, you name it, I have nothing but 5Stars for this handgun. I used Federal 185 Grain FMJ. Although I did load and unload the clip for approx. ten days before firing(don't know if that helped), was a recommendation from a site I saw. But all in all Good weapon .. If your Leary about purchasing because of what others have said , see for urself.. Again 5 Stars.
