    Hello everyone. I just joined and I am as happy to find this forum as I was to discover Hi-Point firearms. I am a big fan of Ruger for rifles (10/22 and AR556) and I shoot a Glock 17 as my main pistol.

    I wanted to try .45 caliber but was hesitant to spend too much money on a gun and bullet size I wasn't sure I would like. My son suggested I try Hi-Point and after watching some positive reviews on YouTube I decided to try the JHP.

    Well... I was quite surprised! Although it is heavy it has VERY low recoil and it is VERY reliable and pretty darn accurate. After 300 rounds of flawless operation I am a believer. Plus ... THIS THING IS FUN TO SHOOT!!

    A Glock it isn't but for $180 it is a great value.

    Anyway, glad to be a part of the group and to represent from Milwaukee, WI.

    JHP-45 is a good starting point!

    Welcome to the club. Be careful, Hi Points are addictive

    If you like the .45 and you like rifles, you should consider the carbine :D

    Welcome to the forum. Be careful, some of these guys are anti-Glock snobs!

    Welcome from a fellow cheesehead. The JHP 45 is an excellent choice.

    I am not a snob, I just like M&P's.
