How tough is the Hi-Point Pistol?

You want a knock around gun that you don’t have to worry about getting damaged?, Which may be a good choice for home or personal defense. The cheap Hi-Point might just be the ticket, but just how tough is it?

Commonly, when we think about what you usually look for in a pistol, you might think about fit, grip, capacity, size, or any other number of variables.

What we don’t usually think about is how tough a gun is; how much crap can you put it through and it just keep firing. To find out Matt from Demolition Ranch took a “cheap Hi-Point” pistol, the cheapest gun in the store, and put it through the ringer.


Here’s the Ringer:

  • Tie a string to the pistol and drag it around with a Ford truck.
  • Toss the pistol into a moss/mud pond.
  • Run over the pistol with a truck.
  • Shoot at it, takes a bullet.

After running it through this ringer, amazingly the Hi-Point still runs.

As much as there are probably quite a few things that we might not like about a cheap Hi-Point .40, the results speak for itself. This seems like the kind of weapon that you can literally store almost anywhere, throw around, or a truck gun and it still keeps on ticking.

That’s really all you can ask for in a pistol, and the fact that it’s affordable for pretty much anyone to purchase makes it even better. How about you what other pistol in the cheap category have you come across that can be this worthy?
