I finally bought a 9mm Hi-Point from a local range while waiting for some friends to show up. While I was at the range, I had access to both of my Glocks, several aftermarket barrels for my Glocks (9mm, .357 Sig, .40), a friend's Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm, and a bunch of other guns. There were so many different guns and calibers, I had a great comparison for the new gun. I have to say that I was very impressed with the Hi-Point. It was at least as accurate as the Beretta. I did a side-by-side comparison, and the Hi-Point did even better than the more expensive gun. The only real peeve I had was with the magazines 10 rd. capacity, but even then, they loaded the same as the Beretta's. The gun will take a little break-in, I assume, to get to like hollow point ammo. I paid $200 o.t.d. for a 9mm, case, and an extra magazine. I've got the Fobus on back-order, but I have to say that I'm very happy (and impressed) so far.
