Seriously, SpaDe said it best...stay way from hi-point, they are pure junk. If they can make a pistol for $150 why can't smith and wesson, colt, or
other gun manufacturers who have been around MUCH longer than hi point make a pistol in the same price range? Because the reputable gun makers don't
make junk! if they did, they could probably make a pistol in the "less than $200 price range". Also, you have to identify your needs...if you want
home protection, nothing more nothing less, NOTHING beats a shotgun, period! If you want something to carry, a smith and wesson airlight 38 revolver
is a great buy and ultra reliable. For automatics I would say Springfield, Glock, H&K, SigSauer, Kimber, or Colt. Any good (new) pistol will cost
you at least $500...but I must say it again, for home defense, HANDS DOWN, nothing beats a shotgun.
