I'll be interested in factory ammo. IIRC, the only source back in the day was from down in Mexico. Reloaders had to use cutdown .308 brass. Outside of that, time will tell if the new metallurgy has helped durability. The original was known more for parts breakage than simple malfunctions.
Ammo availability was my first question too.

Was it today shooting my HiPoint C-9 (laugh if you want).
This is my "snake gun" I carry when I am clearing brush on my property.
7 Rattlesnakes to its credit.
Its big and heavy and ugly, but By God it is accurate !

I thought I remembered Lee Jurras being associated with the AutoMag somehow. Glad to see I wasn't far off.

"Jurras continued his efforts in cartridge development, using as his base the powerful AutoMag pistol,[4] and later the Thompson Center Arms Contender pistol.[5]"

"Loaded ammunition was once available from the Mexican firm of Cartuchos Deportivos Mexico and from Norma"

A ton of info:

To me, hi-point is one of those brands to have while doing things that could leave you with a scarred up or damaged pistol. I can think of a bunch of reasons to have one, and none are laughable.



1. On the boat/tackle box while fishing gun
2. In a holster while dirt-biking or on a 4-wheeler
3. Truck gun
4. Barn/Shop gun
5. Toilet gun (dont laugh, I know a guy who keeps a 44 mag in a wall mounted holster right next to the shit paper)
6. Back up gun while deer hunting to disperse fallen but not quite dead game
7. Yard gun while doing outdoor chores
8. Hiking gun (as long as you don't live somewhere with really large predators, then id recommend a larger caliber)
9. Back up self defense gun (maybe not the gun on top of the nightstand, but the one in the drawer)
10. Last but not least: If you need a gun asap for self defense due to credible threats on your life and all you have is $200, the Hi-Point is what your gonna get.

I know a few people with hi-points and all of them swear by them. I know one guy who has one of everything they make. Ive thought about getting a carbine made by them myself chambered in 10mm. Problem is, everywhere that sells them stays sold out. Ive also thought about one of their pistols to do some experimenting with hydrographic dipping. Chuckle

I have a Hi-Point JHP 45.  It is an extremely accurate handgun.  And, it packs a wallop.

I have dispatched several pests with it.

The down side is it is butt ugly and heavy when loaded.

The ugliest gun I have ever owned.

Don't own one, never held one, don't know anyone personally that owns one. But it goes bang every time from everything I've read and testimonies here. What more can you ask for?

I am curious what the designer was smokin' when he came up with that slide! Could a vert shoulder holster hide something that bulky for CCW?
