    Got the holster yesterday, man Fobus holsters are weird, but I guess it works well enough. I'm starting to get the hang of how to pull it out without it hanging up, but I had my wife test the retention, and there was no way she could pull it out while it was on me. It would bedang uncomfortable with someone giving you a wedgie, but the gunwould stayin the holster. I still feel like I have to practice with it a bit more before I will feel comfortable wearing it; the last thing one would want is to try and draw and have it hang because you didn't have the motion down in muscle memory. Seems like it's good quality though, doesn't shift around when I'm wearing it, and makes wearing the 45 less cumbersome. If you don't mind or already have experience with passive retention holsters, then it seems like a good deal.

    My first holster was my Fobus paddle...I only have one other holster for a different firearm...sucks being a n00b. I like the paddle though,...did the job. I never had any problems pulling out without anything snagging

    How many have you shot? Owned?.....

    Its bad enough we have MMM,brady ,and gun-grabbers at our tails,and the concealed crowd usually doesn't get along with us, but now we got our own kind out here being extremely ignorant,and assumptive,making asinine(sp) comments only reflecting the low level of their own thinking. ****. If you don't like Hi-point,why the hell did you click on this thread?

    I value my hands, eyes and other body parts thus I've never shot or owned one.

    However, as a "saturday night special" it's somewhat better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick

    Cheap firearms have a specfic place, but once ya can afford a G19 or any other quality handgun ya owe it to yourself and your loved ones to upgrade. Besides, no full sized handgun that costs under $150.00 is a quality handgun plain and simple.

    Roy Innis, president of the activist group Congress on Racial Equality, said "To make inexpensive guns impossible to get is to say that you're putting a money test on getting a gun. It's racism in its worst form."

    At the risk of angering the "Yugo handgun" crowd, you really do owe it to yourself to watch this video on retention in a Fobus holster before comitting to one.

    Mjolnir, anytime you're in the area andwant to eat your words, let me know and we'll go out to the range....... My $150 Hi Point will shoot just as well as many more expensive ones. Is it the best choice? No, if you have a million or the government is paying for your piece. For the everyday Joe just trying to make ends meet and feels it is important that he is armed, but can't afford to drop $500 for a fancy model of pistol? It is the PERFECT answer. Reliable, best warranty in the business, and affordable enough that your common 9-5 worker can get one. And isn't that the point? More people able to defend themselves, not just the rich or influential people, but those that really need to defend themselves; those that live in the not-so-great neighborhoods that really wouldn't have the money to pay for a Kimber or even a Taurus? Why should they be deprived of the ability to defend themselves?

    I saw that video on the Fobus holsters, but since the idiot just stood there and let him take his gun, I can't say I'm convinced. No holster will make a difference if you let the attacker work on it while you do little more than hold his hand while he's doing it.......and the motion doesn't make sense, as the way it is constructed would preclude a downward motion, unless that is a different model than what I have.

    Did you read my quote by Roy Innis posted above.

    Like I said, they have a place & once ya can afford to replace it do so cuz the G-19 is hands and shoulders above the hi-point any day of the week. Have you ever seen any serious shooter compete in IDPA, IPSC, Bullseye, Three gun or any other match with a high-point???? There is also a reason not a single LE agency in America carries the hi-point.

    However, you can purchase 5 hi-point's for the price of my P229R :P:P:P

    I don't think I would ever buy a Hi-Point. But if itshoots accuratelyand is reliable, then it's difficult to argue against them.

    So amatch between a Hi-Point and a "good" gun might settle the matter.

    I can't believe that the Hi-Point would shoot better than "many" guns. But a well-designed test would decide the issue. I encourage C365 and Mjolnir to have sucha test.

    Too bad it couldn't be a "blind" test. Those Hi-Points are sougly...:P

    Well, if they are reliable and shoot straight, then they are OK. People seem to like them, often a lot.

    I can't figure out how they sellthem so cheaply.

    I'm not a "common 9-5 worker". I'm a common sonofabitch worker with a full time and a part time job working all hours of the clock. Will be working the 2nd job 13 hours tomorrow, on call Sun night & more than likely working the 2nd job again Monday & the full time job the the rest of the week.

    I'm not rich, I just have my priorities straight & follow a budget so I can save up for weapons/ammo instead of going out for $2.50 beers at night & taking the family to Applebees 2 or 3 times a week.

    I know quite a few LEO's (no I'm not a LEO) and in chatting with em have found out that they take more HiPoints off arrestees than all other guns, combined. That says a lot.

    Good job reading what was actually wrote after shooting your mouth off by posting 5-6 times. Awesome.

    So by your logic, because criminals use them to commit crimes, we should eliminate them from the scene? Wow, sounds familiar doesn't it? Sounds like GUN CONTROL to me......someone sounds pretty hypocritical to me. They are at the low end of the spectrum of pricing, and because of that, they will be bought by lots of different people. Including criminals. If they didn't exist and Taurus was the lowest priced handgun you could find.....guess what, people like you would be talking the samelines about Taurus. You just want something to talk crap about.

    Look, you don't like them, fine. I have no problem with that. What I have a problem with is when people like you want to talk sh** about other people's choices. You like Glock, fine, get a Glock and pay for a Glock. But I've never heard a refutable report of a Hi Point KABOOMing in someone's hands. I certainly have heard of Glocks doing so......even so, if you have one and you have had nothing but good times with it, then great, have fun, good for you for exercising your RKBA. I'm doing the same, but I choose to do it with a Hi Point. The purpose is the same. What purpose drives your vendetta to talk crap about someone else's choice?

    Actually junior, you never read the quote I posted above now did ya?

    Ifin ya had read it and and had understood it then you would know that there is a place for cheap handguns.

    You can do what ya want as far as I care, just don't want others to get the idea that a Hipoint is anyting more than a cheap hunk of junk that shoots bullets & is better off as a boat anchor.

    So, why is it nobody uses hi points in pistol competition or in Law Enforcement???
