New to this forum, not new to firearms. My father taught me how to shoot with his 686 S&W with full-house handloads. Been CCW in NYS for a few years, already on my second card. I love everything about Hi-Point. Stone simple, inexpensive, and you get a human being when you call support. Quick story: I recently purchased a $600+ handgun from a European company that has been operating for hundreds of years. A few months later I wanted to buy a very basic part - standard mag floorplates. At the same time I also wanted to order some more mags for my Hi-Point C9. Turns out nobody makes the floorplates for my European piece (including MOM, even though the pistol is still current production), so I emailed their support the same night I ordered my C9 mags... Had the HP mags loaded and in the safe days before the other guys even returned my email. Hundreds of years and many more dollars for a product does not necessarily equal a better consumer experience. Oh btw, the $600 wonder doesn't outperform the C9, nor my JCP. TL;DR - I'm a Hi-Point fanboy and not ashamed of it. Looking forward to picking some brains around here and learning a thing or two.
