    I bought one when you couldn’t get anything else!! And then I couldn’t get ammo in commifornia



  2. Zackery Calcagno on August 18, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Keep up the work hipoint lmao 🀣 πŸ˜† πŸ˜‚

    If all you can get is a Hi-Point, I’d save the extra $20-$50 and buy a C9. Other than the bore size, they are identical. Any savings you get with the CF-380 will be eaten up in ammo cost. The C9 is in 9x19mm Luger/Parabellum. Not only cheaper ammo but more powerful too and +P rated to boot. Other than the barrel, every part is interchangeable

    Save ur money for a real pistol…



  5. J. S. on August 18, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    It’s a contemporary World War I pistol



  6. James Herrington on August 18, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    That’s disgusting. How can the ftc let this garbage be sold.



  7. Hamish Carter on August 18, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Dayum…. the price makes the Taurus G3c seem like a Rolls Royce by comparison. Lol



  8. Andy Nonya on August 18, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Leave it to Hi-Point to take away the main advantage of the .380



  9. Albert Bishop on August 18, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    I own 2 Hi-point C9 and love them but had to run 100 rounds through them to fix feeding problem and they run well with Federal train and protect hollow points but have never tried the extended mag.



  10. Joe Kin on August 18, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    3 rounds? Love the new burst option



  11. rabidsbr on August 18, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    I love how almost every malfunction results in losing 3 more rounds out of the mag. Usually two fall out the magwell and another stovepipes. Hilarious.



  12. Fuk Yu on August 18, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    I have an old charter arms 38 undercover snubby j frame its really old like made pre 80s has a ton of holster rash im almost certain it was a cops back up ankle gun and the sweat from his/her leg is what caused the bluing to wear off any way i paid 100 bucks out the door with 20 rounds of reload at a local shop here in SoFL about a year and a half ago. Works just fine i got it as a tackle box gun so i wouldnt care what happens cause it was so cheap but i ended up loving it so much i use it as my edc its great i love it and the fact it was so cheap i just hit with some 3 in one gun oil and give it pass a rag every couple of days to keep the rust away



  13. Glock Fanboy on August 18, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Better then overhyped, overpriced Sig junk or Kimber crap!!



  14. The Jeep Dude on August 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    I’m sorry if that is the budget one has but I would do what’s necessary to save for a used Glock 19 for $400 or get a cheap pump shotgun. The malfunctions make it of less value than a baseball bat and a machete.



  15. Jonathan Stancil on August 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    If you really want to throw it at them get a 40 or 45. They are RIDICULOUSLY heavy, but mine is reliable and accurate enough for it’s intended purpose. I bought a 40 because 1) I’m likely to have to shoot through a vehicle door or window and 2) if you buy the most hated gun, why not double the fun and buy the most hated caliber also. Extra points for the stupidly heavy construction as this could easily turn into a CQB and it might become a bludgeoning weapon.



  16. HuntgarDevil DadOfFour on August 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    I can’t ever let my wife know that price tag is a thing 😬😬😬



  17. L H on August 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Jesus I rather have a cowboy action from 1860 in a gun fight then a semi reliable hi point.



  18. jay hogan on August 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    funny stuff… no way id own that p.o.s. even if it was free



  19. Anthony R on August 18, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    I would just buy 100 of em



  20. Honest Outlaw on August 18, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    I forgot they are made in America, my bad.



  21. George Burch on August 18, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    I had one it was a good gun I paid 150 for it new



  22. 7thsign The Northcoast1 on August 18, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Sccy did spell sky until they got sided by sky vodka I think they spelled it like skyy or scky



  23. 7thsign The Northcoast1 on August 18, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Not American made ? They claim to be made in Ohio



  24. Tim Allen on August 18, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Clean and oil?



  25. Ethan Manley on August 18, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    One correction to what you said: despite the poor quality materials, these are actually made in Ohio and are 100% American made. Great video!



  26. Mtnbound on August 18, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    lol one range trip of ammo costs more than the gun



  27. Adam Leese on August 18, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    You don’t shoot the high point you unload and through it



  28. Jason Sliger on August 18, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    If someone can save up $80.00, eventually they can save up $280.00.



  29. Duane Karlen on August 18, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Instead do a clip on cheap revolver ! /please or RUN and DUCK !



  30. I am the Offender of All on August 18, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Glad I am not that poor to have a potential exploding gun on my hip.



  31. Cole Lawton on August 18, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    How about do some research before slandering a company’s business practices? They are not made overseas.



  32. Kratos58gt on August 18, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Wanna get better at malfunction clearing? Buy a Hi Point.



  33. Goldmouth Take NoShit on August 18, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    $80!!! In 2022?!! Unbelievable



  34. Michael Fife on August 18, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    The extended mag you have there is for the car beans don’t work well in pistols



  35. Tony J on August 18, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    I have owned every Hi Point pistols made except the 40 cal. I can tell you they all have at least 100 round break in periods and all the hand guns like a good dose of white lithium on the slide. The 9mm tactical carbine will eat anything flawlessly all the time.



  36. David Rivera on August 18, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    HI PEEZY FOR THE WINNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!πŸ˜‚ jk the fucking suck



  37. David Phelps Jr on August 18, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Most Highpoints like hot rounds , and polish the doll head and slide rails,Ha ha ha



  38. one-of-us on August 18, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Maybe it needs a 1,000 round break in…
    then a 1,000 round test.



  39. Captain John H on August 18, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    No, it isn’t a great gun, and I who can afford a reliable weapon wouldn’t choose it. That said, for who barely has $80 at the end of the month to by a self defense weapon, it may still make a difference. Even if it malfunctions. Let’s be honest, the average criminal is going to be discouraged at seeing an armed victim. And if one shot gets fired, many more will run away. So if the choice is no gun or a questionable gun, give me the questionable gun every day of the week.



  40. James Nelson on August 18, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    I like how with the 10 round mag that he has so many failures he has to clear that he barely gets 8 rounds out of it anyways



  41. J Logan on August 18, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    I bought a hi point at a pawn shop for 75 bucks and I actually have a purpose for it. It is not joking, what i shoot to practice malfunction management with bc that thing NEVER gets through 20 rounds without some sort of failure. Now, if any of my actual good guns ever have an issue, I can clear and reengage them almost reflexively



  42. Tim Spaw on August 18, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Only girls or dudes with really small hands can shoot those things and they need cleaned a lot..



  43. Garrison Nichols on August 18, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Save your money and buy something better. Don’t go cheap on the lives of you or your family. In the worse case scenario it will definitely count.



  44. Joe M on August 18, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    Damn lol



  45. stugotswins on August 18, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    It doesn’t matter how much a gun cost a bullet flys the same it doesn’t matter if it’s a two dollar gun or a million dollars gun the bullet goes the same speed and does the same job



  46. Blitzkrieg Wolf on August 18, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    I’d say to anyone wanting to get into firearms, particularly handguns; go get a Hi-Point C9… learn to shoot it, learn its faults and how to correct them, learn proper handling and gun safety with it, learn how to maintain it, disassemble & reassemble it… once you’ve mastered these concepts, go buy a Canik, Taurus, S&W or Arex. carry over what you’ve learned and adjust to the feel of whatever you fancy owning.

    I don’t discourage with owning Hi-Points, they’re usually reliable (as Outlaw stated) without the extended mags and can be dependable with the right ammo and handling.

    great review as always.



  47. Tee Tea on August 18, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    I dunno…I think I’d still take my chances with a sharp stick if someone broke into my home. Then again, if the robber saw my HiPoint, they’d probably apologize and go rob someone who actually has money instead.



  48. Tommy Gunn on August 18, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    Cheap…ugly… embarrassing to own, so long as you load fmj, tough as hell



  49. Guns And Golf on August 18, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    No clue why anyone would buy this when you can get a Taurus for 200



  50. Duane Karlen on August 18, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    You die if you don’t run duck and cover !
