I am soon to purchase a Hi-Point (I totally bamboozled my wife). I am thinking of the .40 or the .45. I don't really know much about the two. Which do you prefer? I am looking towards the lighter more comfortable of the two.......so hit up a noob with some suggestions!!! :D

Awesome thanks dude, Is the .45 pretty light compared to oter .45's? I am not worried to much about kick because I have shot my fathers .50 DE hundreds of times. I am looking for some thing comfortable to handle. I appreciate your input

I don't have a 40 but do have the C9 9mm and JHP45. I much prefer the 45. The JHP is much larger and heavier but I've found that I'm more accurate with it.

the JHP 45 is a bit heavier then other 45's but I like that it help absorb the recoil IMHO

I've never shot a .40, but it looks and feels like my .45, so I'll suggest you go your local gun shop & retailers to see what ammo prices are, compare. THEN, go on ebay & such, see what reloading equipment & such is available for both rounds...

my point is, you'll be hooked, addicted, but ammo prices are sky-high & many dealers can barely keep inventory... thus demand will drive it higher... CONSIDER reloading. I can pick up empty .45 shells nearly any time I'm shooting, but .40s are not as common. Reloading supplies, once you find them are a good deal all things considered. Even if u BUY your bullets $10/box is better than $20+, mold your own & the price drops through the floor.
