I’ve been saying for some time, that almost everyone can afford something. Ruger, Glock, Kimber, S&W and Colt can be very expensive. I discovered the very affordable Hi-Points when issued their C9 9mm pistol at a security firm. When I left, I bought the pistol from the company:
They manufacture carbines, as well in .380 ACP, 9mm , 40 S&W, and 45 ACP.

People laugh at the cheap guns like .22s.
Personally I don’t want to get shot by one. And ANYONE can afford one. Better than none at all.
Hey, my step-son has a Hi-Point .40 S&W, and that sucker is nice for the price. I was hedging on those until he brought his over to the house. Now I'm on the cusp on picking one up for myself. It's also the most jam-proof of the Hi-Points, from what I hear - his FFL guy said it plays nice in the sandbox with just about any .40 load you bring to the table. And it's a lot sturdier than I expected, especially with so much of the frame being composite. Good weight and balance to it.

I'm reading your post a day later (Sat) and the Gun Snobs haven't eaten you up yet ;-)
but 'series', I bought the Hi-Point Carbine (9mm, +P rated) in 1999 'just in case' Gore got elected. Neat little (short) rifle that'll more than do the job, and in close quarter situations too. And to me it's 'ugliness' makes it MORE cool and 'scary looking'.
