About the Manufacturer:
Hi-Point owner Thomas Deeb was a television repairman before becoming a firearms manufacturer. After spending a couple of years designing the handguns and rifles he wanted to mass produce, he opened his Hi-Point factory near Mansfield, Ohio in 1992. Deeb's company is known for making inexpensive handguns so everyone - particularly the poor - can afford one for protection or recreation. While having such low-cost firearms on the the market always brings up questions about quality, according to Hi-Point they have one of the lowest return/repair rates in the firearms industry. Hi-Point produces about 50,000 pistols and 15,000 carbines each year.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was introduced along with the Luger semi-automatic pistol. The pistol and cartridge was first adopted by the German Navy in 1904 and then by the German Army in 1908. This cartridge has since been adopted by the military of practically every non-Communist power. It has become the most popular and widely-used handgun cartridge in the world. Performance wise, the 9mm cartridge has somewhat more power than the .38 Special but falls well short of the .357 Magnum.
