Joe Mangum: The C9 has it in ammo versatility for it being rated for +P unlike the JA9. If your going to get a cheapy handgun, it may as well be gotten used to at the range and broken in for hot loads. The point of the low dollar, fair quality weapon is for it to be counted on when needed.
Jormungand13324: So basically, the JA-9 is made from stronger materials than the C9. If performance is better out of the box than the C9 then i've found a new candidate for my first sidearm. The stronger materials give it better longevity than the C9.
theguy12322: C9 is the best
Travis Graham: just got mine girst gun! excellent! awsome gun
Matthew Caughey: Both would make great guns for a hitman cheap dependable and the perfect gun to use once and toss em in a river
electricman630: One point that hasn't been mentioned, is from the point of view of people like myself. People who really couldn't careless about firearms, but just "need a gun in the house." Personally I could give two craps what a gun looks like, what the trigger feels like, etc. I pull the trigger on my HP .45, and it shoots bullets out......everytime. So for people like me, it doesn't matter what brand it is. Nobody on this comment thread would stand in front of either one of these guns without crapting their pants.
Andrew Clark: Hi point pistols.....because orcs and goblins need guns too. But in all seriousness, they are decent for what they are: an inexpensive gun.
Chuck Farley: I like your review alot... Thank You I own both of these guns I bought my Jennings in 1999 my first hand gun for my ccw, I still shoot with it today. I got the Hi point in 2015 But in 45 . I shoot the jennings more because it is 9mm lower cost to shoot when I go plunking.
Wayne Mcmichael: I love my Hi Point 40 and 45 and gun I would love to have some more I would love to have the 380 handgun
Mark Vantilburg: Love the review... one point, however, the Hipoint isn't that hard to disassemble... ONE pin to remove, and the tool provided fits the hole perfectly... you can use a rock to take it apart and reassemble... I had mine taken apart and put back together the first day I owned mine, and it took me 5 minutes the first time, simply because the recoil spring is a little tricky to get back in its proper place, but since then, I can have mine taken down and reassembled in less than a minute... I guess your individual mileage may vary... subbed, btw...
James Matthews: two of the sorriest pistols out there
cajunski1: The HiPoint is ugly but much more reliable. I bought a brand new Jimenez and after trying to shoot it and trying 10 different brands of ammo i realized that they must have misspelled their name so I gave that " Jamenez " away. Yep , gave it away and felt guilty about giving it to that fellow... pronounced JAM IN EZ...
Chef Danger: The Jimenez is slightly better looking, but the Hi Point is far and away the better gun. I have no problem at all trusting a Hi Point with my life. I'd feel pretty insecure with a Jimenez.
Tholaran97: We have the Jimenez in our home for defense purposes. It seems we made a good choice. Thanks for the review.
StarSeed: I hate peep sights. Had to get my expert certification on peep sights....
temudginxx: Very informative and useful video. I own a hi point c9 and have used steel ammo as well as brass and aluminum . No problems ever. Thanks for the update on the jimenez.
filoIII: Some say the JA9 is easier to shoot due to the lower bore axis.
filoIII: You could kick a football thru that goalpost backsight on the Jimenez, no doubt.
filoIII: Probably should buy a Taurus PT-111 for $200 instead of these.
Joe Walker: my ja9 passed the drop test i dropd it on purpose and nothing happened and never jamd on me
Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
