    I have never owned a high point, and likely wouldn't, but I do have a Jennings (Bryco).22 pocket pistol I bought years ago, when things were tight. I have shot maybe 100 rounds through it, had it go off when cocking the slide, seen fire billow out from beneath the slide (shootin when dark, kinda neat!). Would I want my wife picking it up to target shoot? Hell No. Would I use it for personal protection if an intruder were coming in the house, Hell yea! I'll take my chances at that point. I have since added a Taurus PT 92 AFD 9mm to the arsenal, so it would be my first choice, or the 12 gauge. Point being, it still has a place, but I would not feel good about letting the wife or kids loose with it.
    To each his own!

    I just don't care if anyone chooses to carry a high point. It is a personal choice, I just chose differently.

    I have seen the frame of a high point and it looks to be cast. I have seem photos of the inside of a broken one, and it was definitely cast with air bubbles in it.

    I don't like that kind of workmanship in my weapons.

    However, it doesn't mean it will blow up in your hand, cuase your testicles to shrink, make your lightbulbs burn out quicker, give you athletes foot, make you dog get cancer or anything else.

    It just means that some of them are more likely to break than something made with a billet or forged frame, (or even a better casting process). Cast metals have been around a long time and they have their uses. But for a given level of strength it will have to be heavier and even then it is more likely to fail.

    Use a high point if you like, pick a Glock, use a 9mm, shoot a 45, AR or AK. I don't care, but I prefer to stick with the facts.

    Well I happen to own two of them, the C-995 9mm arbine and the C-9 9mm pistol. While you are correct that they are not the most accurate of weapons they are by no means the least accurate that I have fired. They have never blown up in my hand like has been stated in so many places. To me it sounds like you have never shot one and if you havent then how can you make an honest opinion. Go check out the reviews at various gun magazines on Hi-Point weapons. They have been in general very positive and that is because they actually went to the trouble of firing them unlike many, if not most, of the p[eople that say they are crappy weapons.

    IF YOU are wondering if I have anything besides Hi-Point weapons, yes I do. I own a Glock 17, Ruger 10-22, Remington marine 870, and a Ruger Mini-14 with folding stock chambered in .223. So I have "good" guns as well as the "crapppy" Hi-Point ones.

    Well stated, very well stated!
