you get what you pay for. i have been around a few of them, mostly 380s. everyone i know with a 380 highpoint cant empty a clip without a malfunction of some sort. when i qualified for my CWP, a guy beside me had a 9mm highpoint and he had the same problem. it jammed a least once per clip. needless to say he held up the entire class. i havent had a lot of experience with many different firearms, but i have never had my Glock jam even one time. if my life is on the line, i want something that works, and id rather pay double for one that i know will work when i pull the trigger. larger guns are generally more reliable because the internals are bigger, so i cant say for sure how the larger highpoints will work. but, anything is better than nothing. the good thing about a highpoint, is its so heavy, if it doesnt fire, you can just throw it at em.
