Default Opinions on Hi Point .40 or .45

Anyone have opinions on either of these? Thinking of buying one as a Christmas gift. I know they are inexpensive but other than being big and heavy I haven't heard much about them. Also, opinions on caliber. He will probably take it to the range from time to time but primarily use it as a night stand gun. Any positives or negatives appreciated. Thanks

In firearms you get what you pay for. How much do you value the recipient of this weapons life??? I have seen several hundred of these guns, I have shot the .40 and the 9mm. The slide on these guns are the heaviest part they actually move the gun by inertia coward and backward with recoil because of the weight of the slide. I will say that the gun is supposedly very reliable, meaning that they go off every time you pull the trigger. My opinion is they are better as a hammer than as a gun, but the dirtbags use them because they are so cheap.... Me I will never own one, you get what you pay for. They are made from cheap heavy parts that may never wear out but the trigger feels like its full of dirt and it is very cumbersome to carry.....

I have a 40, it was cheap but lots of fun. I have shot a ton of rounds through it and no problem. I'm almost ashame to say I have never really cleaned it either and it still keeps on shooting.

We have the 9mm put the darth vader looking stock on it with a BSA red dot looks bad as hell and such a riot to shoot. 3-4 inch groups @40 yds. and eats anything I put in it anything... the aftermarket 15 rnd clips are crap I did get mine to work but had to do alot of filing and polishing. got 3k rnds. down it with no failures. enjoy it shoot $#^t out of it use it for parts for the next one when and if it dies. The new stock lightens and balances the weapon alot!

I have a .45 and have been satisfied. It will do the job without the boutique price of some others.

I have the 45. Most people that say its a bad gun never owned one. Most that do own one really like them. I have shot many a round through mine with absolutely no jams or any other issues. Very accurate and tight shot groups. I qualified with the Beretta 9mm while in the army and shot expert every time. Would have no problem taking my hi point and qualifying on the same course. The heavy weight actually helps with control on the recoil. Would I trust it in a life or death situation involving me or my family?? Absolutely! Your more then welcome to put some rounds through mine and see how you like it.

If you can shoot a high point accurately and consistently then think what you could do with a colt....
