24. Hi-Point C9 Comp: Haggle Price $140-$170

A highpoint in the top 25?

Sorry. This site has 0 credability in my book.

Dont forget the price of these 9mm has to be under $550. The list would look a lot different without a price limit

You said it, brother! I teach CCW classes on a regular basis and I have never had a Hi-Point on the line that didn't malfunction. If they had a Top 25 list for paperweights I would highly recommend it.

Click on "peoples choice" and the XD 9 is 11th on the list

+1. And while I think the XD belongs on any 'best' list, there are some terrific guns over that particular price point.

I have to disagree with #4 (Beretta 92FS/M-9) and #5 (Taurus 92). They are basically the same gun and the M-9, while dependable at the range, has had many issues in the field in Iraq. Not to mention the fact that if you have smaller hands the M-9 has an uncomfortably large grip and the controls are hard to reach.

I believe the M-9 belongs on the list, just not at #4 with a clone at #5.

more proof that you don't have to know crap about guns to write about them, on the internet or in most gun magazines ... most of those guns wouldn't be on any list I would put together except maybe of things to avoid buying ... the XD is the best gun on the list, at least they got that part right

I agree but if you look you'll see there's like 6 CZ75 clones.

As long as we're ripping on Hi point...my buddy has a .380 and a .40 Hi point. Every time we've been out and shot them they've crapped out. Some kind of failure every time, I've even seen it crap out multiple times in the same mag. I've heard so many of these stories. So yeah I'm wondering how in the he** it made the list!!!

I also have a friend that has a C9 Comp. His percentage of hitting just the paper has to be below 10%. If he trades it in he will probably get $40.00 for it. I tried to warn him before hand, but he was more interested in saving more vs. quality.

The C9 "is a good tackle box or truck gun". Yah, it adds weight to the tackle box so you can throw the box at your attacker. In the truck you can wave it around as a diversion while you run them over.

I disregard any site with banner adds for "Cheap Viagra".

I know it's fun and easy to pick on Hi point, but are all these negative opinions from actual experience, or are we just repeating what we've heard? My experience with the Hi point C9 has been great. I shoot it more accurately than my XD9. Sure it might be ugly, and heavy, but its been reliable, and accurate...what more could I really ask of a $100 gun?

All things considered I think it has a place on a list of under $500 guns.

Of course that's just my personal opinion;)
