I prefer an old Ruger GP 100. If you miss, you can always beat them over the head with it.
^^^^This has also been my experience. Sigs are worth the price.I bought my first Sig-Sauer P226 in the late 80’s….along with an Sig P220SB in .45
I still have them both along with a few others.
The Sigs have been reliable and trouble-free…even after all these years.
Dang guy are you into everything?Modern 9mm +P ammo these days is approaching the hotter ballistics of the Sig 357 but without the muzzle blast of the Sig round; it's not your granddad's WWII 9mm parabellum round anymore. I have a Kel Tec Sub 2KII in 9mm and it hits pretty hard with hotter 9 loads. The extra barrel length really helps.
But many years ago I got aboard with the .40 S&W round and that's what I still have. It's not necessarily better than 9mm now, but 25-some years ago it could reach out farther than the 9 and had better terminal ballistics. I guess I'm just stuck in the 40 ecosystem for now. Here's a pair of Sub KT2Ks, an H&K USP and Glock 23, along with a pretty nice little Beretta 22.

I have it also. But you are better at it than I.I have many hobbies and interests. It's a product of my undiagnosed ADHD/ACDC
I only own the one old Glock as well, but I'm sold on the brand.I've avoided 10 mm due to ammo availability considerations. I've had zero experience with Hi-Point and was less than enthused with my first ever 9mm, a Ruger P89. Several more experienced acquaintances steered me to Glock and am glad they did and that I forsook the budget aspect. The G19 is the Telecaster of 9mm IMO. Mine has been flawless and spot on accurate. While not necessarily a Glock Fanboy (I only own the one) I am a fan of the G19. When ever I tear it down and behold it's ugly simplicity I can't help but chuckle.
10mm is much hotter than 9 or 45, it is not normally used as a target round. Equal to 357Mag, it comes close to the 41Mag at around 700 lb.ft. energy with a 180g bullet at 1350fps.Yup. I never really saw the advantage of 10mm, especially when already feeding 9mm and .45.
It's always the shooter!I bought a HiPoint 9MM for little to nothing from a friend who had upgraded. I ended up taking my CC course with it and scored 250 out of 250 in the throw lead down the range test.
the instructor actually laughed as he kind of put a dig into a guy who had just brought in a $1000 weapon for his test and scored less than 200. The guy who had the high dollar weapon said something snarky about me being a good shooter. The instructor then said that my wife had scored 247 out of 250 with the same weapon, so it wasn't the shooter. LOL
I can see that for the bears (etc) there. I often carry my old .357 with a hardened bear round as a jic measure when in the woods here...but we only have black bear and hogs. I'd up the ante if the potential were for the big bears.Alaskans

He added that most handguns just piss 'em off ...
I see you're a fan, and I don't mean to offend, really, but the Hi Point would be more like the Glarry or Indio, IMO. There are just so many more better choices out there in semiauto 9mm pistols to trust your life with than a Hi Point. Aside from being about the cheapest thing out there, Hi Point doesn't have much more going for it.Hi Point would like to be the CV50s Squier, I think
these guys are gonna disagree with that perspectiveAside from being about the cheapest thing out there, Hi Point doesn't have much more going for it.

youtube reviews are used in this context because if I post links to "trusted authority" gun writers (saying the same thing, btw) no one would bother to read them, our society having become what it hasCurious to know if your trust in the reporting by firearm YouTubers is congruent with how you feel about guitar YouTubers
