|Hi-Point Carbine, 9mm, foregrip, laser, quick-fire scope|
Hi-Point was founded twenty years ago by Tom Deeb and his firearms have become popular because of their simplicity and reliability in a competitive world for self defense firearms that are more affordable than the standard tricked out AR-15 that has flooded the market.
While the carbines are available in .45ACP, unlike the Thompson, it does not rise on the third shot as markedly; however better grouping is achieved with those chambered for 9mm. The optional forestock grip also helps in control in rapid firing.
Hi-Point handguns also have received good ratings and have reasonable MSRPs.
