There is no way I would have a Lorcin, Haskell, Raven, Davis, Hi point, or similiar auto pistols. Period.
I wouldn't lump Hi Point in with Lorcin.
1st of all, I understand Lorcin is out of business. No tears to shed there.
No one has ever said anything good about them. At least not that I ever heard.
But I have heard good things about Hi Point. The people that speak well of them are rather sheepish about it because they know the reputation of other inexpensive weapons and they know others will beat them up over liking them.

Glaser Safety Slugs are awesome ammo, particularly for home defense. One should be careful though... they break up on glancing or ricochet-type shots. When firing at a wall perpendicularly, they will penetrate and do not open up. When they hit a soft target, the hydrostatic shock will cause the thin copper case to open. I experimented with them, firing through a 1'' pine board at twenty yards with a cantaloupe placed about a foot behind the board. The slug penetrated the board without rupturing or expanding, and blew the top half of the melon off.

Look into glaser rounds for home defense with a pistol, they will yield the same results as htting your foe with a sledghammer, but break up quickly for low penetration through walls.
