Large Frame, for certain. I've owned them ALL prior to the 3895. The JHP was flawless, and so was my JCP. I guess the C9 is now pretty reliable with better QC on the mags, but I don't buy economical guns these days. But I still love the HP concept! Sub $200 gun for the everyman and everywoman out there operating under a tight dollar cap.
I also love the new G3 (glunk gen 3) stuff, it's getting under $300 for a reliable steel slide, 17rd double stack glunk clone, but I only like the ones that use the Glunk Magazines 馃樄
Thanks!

The Turks are bringing in gen 3 Glock clones that take Beretta 92 or CZ 75 mags, somewhat intriguing, but I think I've nailed down a Dagger dealership which I think will sink the Turks.

You may be right, I鈥檝e got a Turkish SAR9, which is a very solid weapon at a sub $200.00 price tag, too bad the trigger is about as bad as they come, minus the horrible trigger, I鈥檓 at nearly 2K rd鈥檚 without as much as a hiccup

The JHP45. However to carry it is a chore being it is a heavy chunk. The 9 may or may not present a challenge. The mags might need adjusting. Polishing the feed ramp is stupid.
Yup, the JHP is a great model. The one I had, had just over 800 rounds through it, and I don't remember one malfunction.

At this point the only Hi-Point I own is the 1095TS 10mm carbine, which has been incredible, but have been curious about their pistols. Is there any model in particular that has been proven to be more reliable than others? I know that budget anything can be hit and miss when to comes to QC. a good example is my Taurus GX4. Mine has been 100%, yet other folks have had no end of trouble. I think any mass produced weapon can have these issues, but the budget ones tend to see more problems, you either get a good one or you don鈥檛. I know the reliability, fit, and finish of my Sig P220 Elite 10mm has been amazing, but at seven times the cost, it better be.
My Hi Point model JHP 40 S&W has been flawless. I don't shoot it as much as I should since the price of ammo skyrocketed, but before that I probably put a couple thousand rounds through it. I think I got it in 2013 or 14 It's now my if they catch me by surprise and make me open my safe pistol, loaded and ready to pull out of the safe and do what I have to do.. It shoots well and is impressively accurate.

Carry a Rock Island .38 in your PJs. Shoot them first.
