Took the new JHP out this morning for break-in and familiarization. Weapon: Hi-Point JHP .45ACP, 2 magazines. Ammo: 300 rounds, WWB 230gr FMJ. I took my new JHP out to my favorite area today to plink a bit and basically break it in. I didn't have any set agenda or set targets. I normally use whatever happens to be out there. There is usually a variety of cardboard boxes and ammo boxes scattered around so finding something to shoot at normally isn't an issue. I did take a couple f empty soda bottles and energy drink cans to move around. First magazine; I topped off the magazine I had loaded as we cant have a loaded chamber in the car here, and squeezed the trigger. Round 1 fired smoothly and then, FTF! I racked the slide again and the next round chambered just fine. No other malfunctions were encountered in 300 rounds. I spent the next 300 rounds blowing large holes in cardboard and decimating "Monster" cans. Someone had left a little cup of ranch dressing out there, the kind you get in a salad from McDonald's or at a grocery store, and watching it shower and splatter was awesome. I have to say the recoil was very much less than I anticipated. My sister went with me to run a few rounds through her C9 and ended up firing 3 mags from the JHP. My sister is by no means the heaviest built girl on the planet. In fact I would bet she weighs in the low 100's soaking wet. She had no problems of any kind touching off her 3 mags worth. Verdict: I LIKE IT!!! Looks like this one is a keeper and a fine companion to my C9. If I put another 3-500 rounds through it with similar results, it will replace the C9 as back up HD to the mossy. Final thoughts: It's big. It's ugly, It's BAD @$$!
