Hi-Point 40 Caliber Review And Evaluation




What do you think about this video?

Juggernaut MediaLlc: And yeah…I paid too much, but I like to support the local gun shops when I can…it happens. You can find for next to nothing around for sure.

Juggernaut MediaLlc: Some ragging on the grip…not sure why unless you are a bunch of "tea cuppers" like the one guy below…cup it…really? Have you taken any training in the past 5 or 6 years. Stacked extended thumbs is the current train of thought to mitigate recoil down the wrist. I've always said I am not a pistol guy for the most part, but grip…with the awkward nature of this particular pistol is what most instructors today will teach you. The way the "thumb channels" are molded you almost have split your thumbs around the mag release…one above and one below to avoid depressing it by mistake like I did the one time in the video and the slide is so fat compared to most other modern striker fire slides that you don't want to get your thumb too high like you can ride it up on XD or M&Ps. Thanks for watching…this was also one of my first videos…unfortunately lost my range…it closed down…so still looking for a place to do more videos. All in all I think the review is pretty honest and I still own the pig of a gun…lol. And remember…I'm no gunfoo master and don't try to say I am…I do love training and take courses when I can…taken several after doing this video…one with the every awesome Rob Pincus and one with Chris Costa…another great trainer with definite haters and likers…I think the man is awesome.

Jeff Windle: The "suggested grip" you do is stupid. I've never done that. Hold one handed ans the other as support on the bottom.

Newt Dewrock: Mercy... ??? Is it really that hard to fire a gun and hit a target... ??? ??? 

Longneck Withspots: They sell alot in north Fl. for murders...Just throw it away.

Scott M: That is the most God awful hand grip I've ever seen. The old cup and saucer style is better than that.

Ron Carpenter: I have the 9mm version of the ugly gun. I purchased it for a hideaway in case our own gov't ever goes around collecting guns. Is it my best shooter? No! Is it my favorite? No! After watching some youtube torture tests it is indestructible, and if it's the only one left after gun control, it will be my favorite.

king kefius: Hi points dobt feed tula ammo good you have to use good ammo mostly the brass not those aluminum or steel casing ammo.

Jeff Windle: The "suggested grip" you do is stupid. I've never done that. Hold one handed ans the other as support on the bottom.

Paul Speer: Point your right thumb straight up, move left higher into space where thumb was. Place left thumb on slide. Fixed.

General Assassian: a gun is a gun bad or not it will kill idgaf lol highpoint <3 forever lol

Gun Bats: You have to be High to buy a Hi point!

Jennifer Sentman: so i bought this pistol offmy step dad just as a self defense eapon for a hobby i enjoy. im super uneducated on types and brands of weapons so what are these hi point haters? what is th downfalls to them? when i picked this one up i agree it is a heavy weapon.

Charles Deeds: Just bought an M and P 40 for 340$ over the internet, nice weapon, better than a Glock. 340 was FFL transfer and tax, :)

kyimpalass: I bought my 45acp full size hi-point not long ago, and it feeds everything, the way you hold a gun is up to you cause I hold mine a diff. way then how you do. the steel case ammo should fire fine, that's all that I shoot in mine, 2 things on how to make your gun fire great, 1. polish the feed ramp it helps out so much to have a smooth feed ramp, 2. when you put a round in the mag look at the top front of mag where the bullet is bend each side of mag out just a hair. Im sorry 3 thing you can do, 3. after you put in the number of rounds or until mag is full. what u did in the video with your hands to the mag by tapping the mag on your hand I do it all the time to all my guns. that way the rounds will point the way they should.

orangept7: I have the older .45 ACP pistol and the grips have checkering and the mag fits flush with the bottom of the grip. Feeds, fires, and ejects just fine. Just hosed it out with gun scrubber and lubed the slide with a little hoppes number 9 and she runs. 

joey p: For $150 you can't go wrong!!! 

Andrew Dye: Not bad for a cheaper pistol no jams no stove pipes no failure to feed I'd say good to buy if you were wanting to arm others in a shtf situation or if you can't afford a more expensive pistol

Lee Schmedthorst: I have the .45 and the carbine and the only ammo it has a problem is with tula. that is even with the carbine ammo in the pistol. however my ak loves tula

Justin Lee: I had the same feed issue a couple of times, first it was that the spring was just too tight and just feeding more rounds it worked out. The second was an ammo issue like he said, since it has a heavy slide, when I dropped to cheaper ammo it didn't seem to have enough recoil to eject and feed right. Oiling up the pistol and mag fixed that. I am a function over form kind of guy and this pistol works perfectly for that especially for the price. This weapon even saved me from being attacked buy a pair of pits, it shoots every time I have taken it out. The aiming is not bad either once you adjust and practice, I use the ghost site that came with it. And if all else fails the thing is a damn brick, you can beat something to death quite easily haha!

garnertgcg: No wonder you can't hit anything your holding that gun like an idiot. primary hand takes up whole grip, cup around the bottom with second hand. How do you not know how to hold a gun???

D. Howard: You paid $40.00 over MSRP. You got ripped off brother even if it was a mom and pop store. 4 years ago I paid $105.00 brand new in the box on Gunbroker for my .40. After a small adjustment to my 3 magazines it runs flawlessly. I would make a few improvements to it but that said I like it and its a definate keeper.

sysjls75: I like the Hi-Point pistols. I like to shoot them and tune the actions. I would never carry anyone of them, do to the weight. FTF is usually related to the charging ramp and the magazine ears. The gun store where I do most of my business will not handle the Hi-Points. They bad mouth them to no end. The margins are low and they don't make enough money. I shot against a guy today who was shooting a Sig Model 1911. Beat him hands down with a Hi-Point. When he found out he was embarrassed.

andrew james Mailloux: Garnertg dumb it is more stable to hold it double grip and thumbs off the oposite side of ejection port. Have fun. Low level

stix4Him: Picked up a TS995 as well. Love it!

Gj23jk2: 6:58 - *fumbles for slide release that doesn't exist* Oh, there's no slide release... You dern Glock owners and your fancified "features". You should be thankful you get a magazine release button. In my day, we had to pry the magazine out with a screwdriver! XD

greenspiraldragon: The barrel is removable with a punch pin it is not actually part of the frame.

stix4Him: Every HP I have had in the past has been 100% reliable and accurate. Heavy? You betcha! Ugly? Ummm you could say that. Junk? In my experience... Nope. Picking up a HP 4095TS next week. Made 100% in America with no foreign made components!?!? Me Likey!

Joe Tommy: I have never own a semi auto pistol . I'm a old school mountain man I like my revolvers . I just got me high point 9mm an glock 40 to keep in my bag when I not at my cabin . I only had 1 failure to feed in my high point . After the failure to feed I bent the feed lips polished it up inside the slide and triger and feed ramp . Now I have put 790 rounds through this high point not another problem but that one failure to feed . How ever tho my glock has had 3 stove pipes and the clip spring gave me trouble for a while . But I have to say high point for the money is good gun . I hit n fbi targets at 38 yards in a group of about size of a paper plate . I have to let y'all know I agree high points are big heavy ugly guns but they work . And it's built like a tank . I was amazed by the service from the factory and the warranty . But I remember when flocks first came out people us to say they blocky feel like toy look like a toy . I think high points the new cheaper glock but that's my opinion. I know plenty of cops who agree for the money they are good . I know 2 cops who when off duty carry a high point 40 as there carry . I have had a lot of luck with federal ammo in my high point seems to love that brand she them up spit them where I aim . I also love the ghost ring sights . Don't get me wrong I love my me glock but for the money you can't go wrong with a high point . Just like a glock there the newer guns a lot people hate n on . But I bet in few years not people will agree high points are ok guns I u can get past the heaviness and ugly block. 

TEAMMVT: freak mom n pop. paid 100 buck to much

Thomas Payton: just remember that with the police these days if you have to use it for home defense and its a nice kimber the police will 'Confiscate' it and you wont get it back because it will wind up in their private collection.

daniel rice: it likes brass 124g i use remmington

Thomas Payton: this is a fine inexpensive weapon for home defense.

daniel rice: Hi-points do not like crappy ammo and brass 124g

TheGbeecher: It uses a polymer frame (Zytel maybe?), but so do 80% of all modern handguns. 'Cheap' Tula ammo killed a lot of Germans and Nazis in WWI and WWII. I've shot plenty of Tula, Wolf, Novisibirsk and Bear ammo from Russia in my C9 and Mosin rifle and not had a single problem. My eldest son has the JCP40 and neither of us have any issue with the grip - get a grip! Yeah, 'it'll do', and for someone who can't afford another $100-200 dollars, it may save one or more lives..

web440she: I've had Tula cause feed problems in my P-95. I think it's overall length is just a little longer than others. Never had an issue with it otherwise.

Lawrence Glazer: I bought and switched to great beautiful grips from eBay.

SNAKEDOCTOR99GT: learn how to grip a gun before you make another video

Lawrence Glazer: I have the 45 and it is great at the range! I have small hands and it works well for me. Hardly any recoil. No jamming.

Bob R: I don't feel " its an ugly gun " is a deal breaker, if this gun is for personal protection I have never heard of a bad guy not being deterred because the gun was ugly.

Gone Mad: I have one hydro dipped on camo and rebel flags never had it kam or nothing sweet guna

jlh505050: I've got a Hi-Point .40 and my wife has the Hi-Point .380. We've shot about 1000 rounds through each pistol. They both operate as well as our Rugers and Tauruses. The cost of BOTH of our Hi-Points was less than ONE of the others. We wish we'd bought the Hi-Points first. And, for any Hi-Point haters out there, you're welcome to stand in front of my wife and I as we empty our Hi-Point pistol magazines. Just sign a release of liability first...

Kevin McMahon: I was never impressed with any of their pistols.

deweyvonslayer: a friend of mine once said guns are like girls, especially in reference to hi point. the sexy ones are picky, high maintenance, and arent always in the mood. the not so sexy ones are surprisingly the opposite, and usually very good at it.........if I offended anyone, i apologize. i understood exactly what he meant.

Mule TeamSixtySix: good vid please keep them coming...love the numas

Troy Belnavis: It's not a ugly gun I like big guns

king kefius: i just bought a hi-point 45 jhp, took it to the range yesterday the gun is great had no issues with very accurate, your shoots were off, i dont know for certain it may have been a combination of your ammo and the distance of your target, as far as ammo i used winchester and federal 45 auto dont use that cheap crap, oerall the hi-point is a good gun for the price, i like the gun.

eosphorus904: any ftf yet? i hear this alot from hi point was planning on getting a couple for Christmas in .40 or .45

Nicholas Florindi: Ok, here's some feedback. For one you start the entire video by saying you want to really test the gun and dispel if some of the "haters" are just about form over function. Then you go on for five minutes about the looks... Next, the thumb switch. I have one sitting in my lap. It's extremely easy to reach, and I see you move it very quickly... more BS. And then I see you complain about the slide not being able to stay back. With a mag in, the slide won't go forward empty. crap video.

Juggernaut MediaLlc: How about a little more feedback rather than just being a hater. Tell us what you dont like about it to see if we can use it to be better.
