    TRUE!
    and when it comes to using a handgun in that type of defense I would venture to say not many handguns could out perform the Hi point!
    course now some of the older Ruger semi autoes would come in as a honorable mention!

    IF I knew how to pronounce or spell CZ I would mention what I carry but I am after all public school educated.

    I have a 12 year old CF-380 that keeps shooting and shooting 100% each time it is out on the range. I have no idea at all how many thousands of rds it has had run thru it.

    I've owned a few guns in the past that I wouldn't have trusted with my life, but I didn't buy those particular guns for self defense. (like a collectable WW2 Luger) The Luger seemed to function best with 124 grain ball ammo, not the best choice in defensive ammo. In fact, when I had a extensive gun collection, very few of them were intended to be defensive guns, although any of them could've been pressed into service if the situation was desperate.

    The plain fact is, even "good" gun companies make lemons. Sig P365 comes to mind. Any pistol from any manufacturer today, that will put 300-400 rounds through it without a bobble I would tend to trust. Don't care what name is on the slide.

    Own 3 PT 92’s, a 94, 357 Tracker, 3 M85’s, 605, and 617.

    Each serve an intended purpose if so required.

    All go Bang every time we pull the trigger!

    That experience is satisfactory to me for choosing as my daily defense hand gun.

    We own High End options too.

    Trust the Taurus brand based on the positive outcomes raising my confidence to supporting continued carry/ ownership.

    Local gun dealer says he's had more problems to repair from Sigs than anything else on the market today.........

    Ya know, I keep hearing about the P365 issues . . . . . issues that were fixed at company expense . . . .Within the first year if its release. Haven’t heard anything after that first year release growing pains. I bought mine early this year, bought as a 2-fer along with my LCP II, without Issue. But my PT140and 145 still shoot fine. And the 738 is a shooter too.

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!
