Well you must not have seen this video . Both pistols are the HP 380 & 9mm cals.Yea from all the reviews I read and videos I looked at.
Cobra CA380: Jams every other round.
Hi-Point 380: Jams every other 3 rounds.
I would take the highpoint
Two things I can tell you about the 9mm (380 use same platform/mags). They do not like to be limp wristed, so if you have sissy wrist avoid.Well you must not have seen this video . Both pistols are the HP 380 & 9mm cals.
A long series of flat out abuse & the hi-points kept running - bolcked barrels, double charges, ran over by truck. Worth watching the whole group of video's of these guys try to destroy the hi-point, which they could not.
Based in part on having shot one of yours, I'd pick a hi point too.Never owned a cobra, but I own 4 hi-points (2 45acp pistol's [mod JHP] & the 45 carbine TS4595) and one old full size 9mm JS9. All shoot straight & go bang when the trigger is squeezed. I like them. I also own some high end guns too. For what they are, & from my experience, I'd pick Hi-Point.
I'm trying to decide between a Hi Point 45 and a Kimber Super Carry Custom 1911.

Great point! I own a FNH FNX (standard) 45acp (15+1) it's a fine pistol! And yes it is slightly more accurate for me at the range - better trigger & ergo. However the hi-point 45 accepts a 14rd pro-mag mag giving it a (14+1) capacity. So basically you have similarly capable pistols both USA made. One for sub $200 + $30 for a hi-cap mag. vs. a $800 pistol. Both great shooters. Which one would I take into the ruff & tumble, on a boating trip, etc... where damage or loss could occur? You can guess...Get the high- point... if you don't like it at least you only spent less than $200
Damn man! That was a fun day. Doing real world tactical shooting. Thanks for letting me shoot your Sig 45acp. Another fine gun. I am still not as good as you are at the retreat while maintaining site picture / firing over shoulder drill (yes people he hits the target - usually near the 10 ring from 7 to 10 yards + ) mad skills Sir!Based in part on having shot one of yours, I'd pick a hi point too.
45 Hi Points are in fact, for my purposes, the second nicest shooting handguns I've ever fired, the only nicer ones being highly tweaked M&P 9's.
Sounds good.. I started this thread out as kind of a joke. Now i'm thinkin of buying a hi-point in 45... just to have it. Thanks for all your info.Well to the OP's other point. Yes, once my Hi-Point was empty - I would not bat an eye at using it for a club, or chucking it at the bad guy.
What more could one ask for out of a sub $200 pistol?
Not a bad idea at all. I kept mine as a trunk gun for quite awhile. Now people in the local classifieds here are trying to sell them for $300+ haha.Sounds good.. I started this thread out as kind of a joke. Now i'm thinkin of buying a hi-point in 45... just to have it. Thanks for all your info.
