I have a jhp .45 Hi-point all I can say is over 500 rounds through no ftf or jams and very accurate I use it as my bedstand gun.

They are hideously ugly though. Its like saying "That girl can perform like a supermodel but she has the face the face of a horse".
I cannot decry the accuracy and indeed a bedside gun is an excellent usage for it.
But I cannot get past the LOOKS! It is as if Ford resurrected the Edsel designers and asked them to make a gun ....

I wonder just how many gun snobs are quietly adding the High Points to their collections? The guns are reasonably priced, and go bang without fail. They are also pretty accurate. Back in 2010 Pat Cascio, a writer for American Hangunner, checked out a series of .380 pistols. He looked at the Ruger LCP, the Walther PPK, the Bersa .380, and a couple of others. Of them, the High Point was the second most accurate. In fact, he liked them so much that he bought a pair of them.
Yeah, and you can always throw them at the threat if they don't shoot or build a house with them . . .

Sorry, let that one slip . . .

Everything is scarce. I have more handguns than two LGS I stopped in today. And, in my favorite calibers, I have more ammo.

Is it true that high points have problems feeding hollowpoints?
I can't speak for the other firearms in the Hi-Point line up. My JHP45 (pistol) and 4595TS (carbine), have no issues with hollow point ammunition.

The 9mm C9 always had feeding issues with HP's, but there's a very simple work around and there's several pages dedicated to it on the HiPointTalk Forum. Polish the feed ramp will fix it. My JHP .45 never had any issues with HP's.

My .45 has no problems with hollow point ammo. cant speak for the other calibers but since they are all made virtually the same I would think they would be ok as well.

I have a C-9 and two 995 carbines. All three run without any problems and the carbines are a lot of fun. I would like to have a .45 carbine but not at the prices people are asking for them today.

2,400 rounds through my old c9 and never had an issue. I did end up polishing the feed ramp and a ton of other pieces but it wasn't due to failure lol. I sold it to a good friend to buy my 740. He's put another couple hundred rounds through it no issues. I used every kind of ammo on the market, new and reloads, no FTF or FTE. I'd say that there are bad reviews out there for them but then look at the 740 reviews or the ruger lc9 reviews. Most people who think these guns aren't worth the money, have never in fact owned one.
