beast57805: Laughed out loud when you refferenced the "type" of people walking around with tula ammo in their guns!.. I have an xd 40 i fired one mag of tula thru and literally gave the rest to my buddy cause i could just tell that was some crap ammo... Stick to federal hp or winchester great for the price! Hi point .40 is my next addition... Thanks for the info
jeremy shropshire: just bought one for 85 gonna shoot it this weekend can,t beat the price
Grifforian: one you're gripping the pistol wrong and two the high points 40. doesn't like any type of wide mouth ammo not sure about the other calibers. I've had mine almost 9 years and carry it every day good gun but heavy and it is very accurate once you adjust the rear site. As far as the clip release goes if you hold it properly it won't drop on you, I should know i'm 6' 5" and my hands are not small.
Richard Pardue: The Hi Point 45 is 32 ounces whereas the 1911 government model is 38 ounces empty. Iv never had a problem out of mine. But I do have better pistols for carry. Mine is a fun gun for plinking at the range. I lost count of the rounds iv put through mine. At least over 1000 rounds of reloads. If it was all I had I would carry it for defense.
Dean James Littlehaven: Tune the magazine and polish the feed ramp. Further more I have a Hi Point 40 cal. Smith and Wesson that I adore. And I would defiantly trust and rely on it to save my skin in a fire fight. People say that they are Ugly? I beg to differ I think it looks kick ass and they are bad to the bone.
David Stone: I have never seen anybody fumble around with a grip so much and make a gun look so much worse than it is. I have owned 2 of these and trust me when I say it's you.
blueboy31086: American eagle or png those are the two best kind of ammunition I fired out of my gun. Went through 50plus rounds and never had a problem
I have a hi point 40 s&w
Richard Walsh: Yes it is heavy, yes it does not have beauty features BUT it will put the rounds on target at 25 yards with a small group--Never had a problem
JayzBeerz: your trash needed to be emptied great review though lol
sysjls75: I have a couple in my gun safe. a 9mm and a .45 ACP Both shoot and function well I tricked them out a bit improving the grip and appearance. I am satisfied that they do not deserve the bad press they usually get. A good truck gun and beyond that, not much more than some other gun you can talk about. Would not buy another Hi-Point.
Randy Pelton: I bought a hipoint 40 for my first gun and fired thousands of rounds threw it without a malfunction then im like i want a nice gun now so i bought a colt comander and it wouldnt run two mags threw without a failure to feed i had to completely re build the brand new colt and my hipoint worked outa the box go figure they work and if they dont they will fix it no questions asked and give u a mag for your trouble best costomer service in the eorld
goog le: the barrel is fixed to the frame on these and helps with the accuracy I understand. I have the c9 and shoot American Eagle and had one stovepipe a little on me the first time out as brand new and after that no problem. I noticed this 40 didn't have any problems. These heavy slides on these non locking blow backs just need a little horsepower to make them cycle properly. All these HP's are plus p rated so shoot them and you most certainly wont have any issues.
Chase Sick: this guy sucks at shooting
Mario Mosin: Question did you lubed the pistol prior to shooting it? Most of my friends who are hi point owners tell me those pistols need more lube than normal pistols, great review, subbed.
Chris Gustafson: I'd question the intelligence of anyone buying a highpoint. I've shot plenty of Tula through decent to great guns. No problems. It the gun. Well to wrap this up, nice boat anchor.
Glenn Smith: In my experience,they work,every time,with decent ammo! Ask 20 guys what a pretty weapon is,and you will get 20 different answers! Pretty doesn't win a gun fight,the shooter does...
usmcshoey1: My C9 ate pretty much anything I gave it.
Shawn Bartley: What is tula?
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.
