What Hi Point to buy? Help me!

Discussion in 'Hi-Point Pistols' started by shadowlands, Feb 2, 2016.

  1. Hey everyone.
    I own a Ruger LCP with a CT laser for my “pocket carry” concealment weapon, so I’m not looking for a new Hi Point for deep carry.
    I’m looking for a Hi Point for the range, and to qualify with, for future needs.
    When I renew my CHL, I don’t want to rent a full size 9mm to qualify. I want to own one!
    So, for $169.99 at Gander Mountain, here in Houston, I can pick from the following:
    Hi Point JHP .45, Hi Point C-9 9mm or Hi Point JCP .40.
    I’ve owned the JHP .45 before and love it. I’m currently leaning with it.
    However, I realized that the C-9 9mm or JCP .40mm may be better for both target practice and qualifying, because of .40mm being more mainstream/affordable, etc…?
    What’s your vote?
    C-9 is smaller for concealment? If so, don’t need. JCP .40mm is full size?

    Isn't the .40 & .45 the same size weapon JHP & JCP?
    If so, I'd rather get the .45 since I owned it before.
    the C-9 isn't really a full size 9mm?

    JHP/JCP = Same Frame :D
     

  3. Go with your gut and get the .45. You're correct the C9 isn't "full size" (but it's big, LOL)

    JCP holds 10,
    JHP holds 9, but the 45 is the beefier bullet!
     
  5. Would any of you try to qualify with one?
    I had to rent a full size 9mm when I qualified for my CHL.
    My father told me not to do the shooting test with my Ruger LCP.
    Would you qualify with the JHP if you had one?

    The C9 works best for me, anything greater in weight might be a hindrance for a rapid fire course.
     
  7. Ha, no rapid fire going on down here.
    My area ranges don't allow it, and when I qualified, it wasn't allowed.

    Shadowlands, first, yes if needed I would use my JHP to qualify. It is accurate and reliable. I used my CZ75BD for my qualification as ammo is cheaper and I shoot it very well. I did not use my LC9 for qualification as I wanted a perfect score.
     
  9. Nice!!!! I once owned a CZ75B and it was awesome!!!
    Beating myself in the face with a brick for ever selling it.
     
  10. Yup I would use the JHP to qualify. It's accurate as can be.

  12. I should have warned everyone about the photos... ooops!

    She does keep me inline at times. She didn't really know what I was giving up at the time. I do miss that gun.

  13. OK, I am still interested in the C-9 simply for "cheaper ammo" reasons. But I think I would like it with the 10-round mag/extension.
    Would that make it more like a full size 9mm?
    Or if that's what I'm after, a JHP .45 would be more to my liking?
     
  14. Would the C-9 with the 10 round mag give me more of a full size?
    Would anyone of you qualify with that?

    Sorry for the dumb questions.
     
  15. Just buy the new JHP.You say your already accustomed to it.The C-9 mag isn't going to make any difference in anything?
    Buy a good revolver if your in doubt with 'qualifying'. Learning single action is a piece of cake.Get good with that and double action is even more rewarding to 'qualify' with.
     
  16. Why isn't she posing for pix with a gun?
     
  17. In Texas we can't qualify with a revolver and carry a semi-auto.
    To carry a semi-auto, you must qualify with one. So I don't want a revolver.
    I'm torn between a new Hi Point JHP or C-9 at $169.99, or a used Smith & Wesson SD or used Ruger P95, either for $300.00.
    Love the Hi Point price the best, since I could bank some, and God knows I need to.
     
  18. Good point! We did a shot like that many moons ago.
    I may beg her for another one day.
