What do you think about this video?

jimmyt568: ty MDPepper.. have a c9 nvr heard of Jiminez tbh..was just looking for a good low cost 9 .. sounds like depends on what you like.. if you want a tank go hi-point.. if you want something that looks good but still reliable.. ja-9..sounds about right up the pipe.. ty

Taylor Perry: Half of the people that talk bad about these two handguns have never fired them, these guns are just fine. Very good guns.

Richard M: Regarding mags...I, from experience, recommend buying Hi-Point brand mags it you enjoy shooting over clearing jams..

johnnybgoode1950: Does the JA9 really have a steel slide and aluminum frame? I thought it was Zamak construction. Also, they said the JA9 failed the "drop test" in California. Is this gun more dangerous if dropped than a Hi-Point, or was that test just some bureaucratic nonsense?

gtracer66: Happy to see someone review/compare budget guns like these. These guns fill a niche in the market. Low price for those who can't afford one of the big name brands like S&W or Sig, etc. Also for someone who might want a gun that they don't treasure so much, they never shoot it. If one of these get scratched up, who cares? If I had one of those ! 3000 Sigs, I'd be afraid to shoot it. If I were to drop it, I'd have a heart attack. One of these, I might use as a club if out of ammo. 

pbruc brooks: I've been to a lot of firearms dealers and I always saw Hi-point pistols for sale. What do the dealers say about JA? Junk Ass; NG. One called the JA a "shake and bake" Jennings, Arco throw together. 

Manhood101: If you can't afford a closet full of Sigs and Smiths one of these may be an option for the extreme budget minded buyer. BUT........if you can only afford one gun, instead of buying one Highpoint save for two and buy yourself a good used gun instead. In my early 20's money was a huge problem and I had my fair share of Jennings 22's and 380's during that time......along with one Beretta 92f that I saved hard for. That being said I see a LOT of Highpoint guns at the range and the gospel truth is I see more Glock malfunctions, mostly due to limp wristing, than I ever have from a Highpoint. Cabellas makes the claim they do not carry any firearm that have known safety issues or abnormal malfunction rates and they are now carrying Highpoint. Take that for what it is worth. Dislaimer........my opinion is worth exactly what you paid for it. 

Kenneth Jarrell: Hey md prepper are you a fan of the Mosin nagant model 91-30

Mini Boss: Hey Tracer we want a gun that's gonna fire when we pull the trigger they want something that looks good they can spend a lot of money on and take dancing I got a hi point and it will kill just just like the rest 

Daisy Troncoso: 

Alfred Reece Fitzgerald: Is Jimenez still in business?

shawn hilton: i had a ja nine first time out to the range it fired twice then wouldnt fire at all after that. my hi points i have owned have never failed me.

Michael Russell: I have had a Jennings .22 and Raven .25 floating around the house for at least 30 years, and every time we take them to the range they fire every time, and neither have ever jammed. This JA9 looks like the Jennings, just scaled up. People needlessly apologize for the brand, they work like they should. I think the reasonable question is whether the direct blowback design is a good idea all the way up to 9mm--.380 is as far as most manufacturers take that concept before they want to absorb a little more energy in the cycle.

Tracey Rainey: I've had both and they both jam but the safer gun is the high point. I no longer have either gun. 

mark warnberg: To One & All: The www.bbb.org is a very good place for serious customers to get the down-load scoop on a product! Buisnesses are not required to hold Accredited Registration, but those who do give their customers a sense of credibility as the requirments for Accredation are quit high. Surprise all the the Jiminez Gun Bashers! Jiminez Arms is ACCREDITED with an A+ rating, 0 complaints in the last 3 years! So why is it none of the Bashers on these youtube sites have never registered their complaints to the BBB?

Mark Barnett: I bought a Hi Point C9 for a stash gun. I suspect people shoot limp wristed or don't release the slide and cry that they jam. I've had no trouble with mine.. the trigger smooths out a bit after a 1000 rounds.. NO, it's not built as well as my S&W, but it goes bang when I pull the trigger and puts the bullet were I aim... not bad for $150...

TheSpritz0: I've got the Hi-Point but in .40S&W, with under-barrel sight NO PROBLEMS in one year of use!!

J. Dalton: Well how is that ja9 hold up?

MrC45man: I really have not seen any stocking dealers in the Philly metro area that even stocks either of the above. It takes a "special" kind of dealer that would inventory them. I saw a few HiPoints in a pawn shop in S.C. while on vacation. Little profit, large headaches. By the way, the mag release problem you described is common in the Kel Tec PF9.

Tracey Rainey: The Jimenez is not steel or aluminum ! The whole thing is cast.

PNYprepper: great review doc! I went with the hi-point, Waiting for delivery this week.

deerslayer303B: The JA looks SO MUCH BETTER than the Hi Point.

Steven King: I wouldn't want to be on the business end of either, but I bought the Jimenez. 

travis bickle: Easiest way to explain these guns- both very cheap, both built on a budget. Hi point spent the limited funds making it actually function correctly and said to hell with how ugly it is-- Jimenez did the opposite and built a polished turd. the end

mark warnberg: I wonder, do people who lack common sense purposly look up gun Reviews too dump on? Joey DeFixer: I was curious to your statement and googel "states that have SALES BAN on Jimenez Guns" and could only find the state of California, no other states ,mentioned. (from what I understand many Californians legaly own Jimenez guns). Squid308 and some of the others: Federal Law can override State Law so if the guns were "unsafe" they would not be on the market in any state! that is just COMMON SENSE!! MPPrepper: You forgot to mention the Jeminez is easier to field strip. Both gun work great for what they are desighned for as long as you follow the Maufacture Instruktions. Stay Protected - Carry Safe.

TheSpritz0: Get the under-barrel laser sold by Hi-Point, and you won't NEED to reload after hitting your opponent :)

That Coyote: The Hi-Points work better using +P ammo...at least from my experience. Haven't had a single failure from using hot ammo. Kind of needs it to push that heavy slide back.

Squib308: dude the jimenez J-9 is a trash.....awful safety record. while the hi point looks like a comparable firearm, the hi point C9 is far superior. i wouldn't take a JA9 for free if you offered it to me....the slides have flown off while firing and injured the shooters, among other serious injuries. it's a Jennings J-9 with a different name....garbage.

Gary Middleton: why buy more mags for the jimenez if they come with two...i held the jimenez was light i hate highpoint

admrial hazzard: what size holster for the ja 9.. want to get one from walmart

Joey DaFixer: Jimenez Arms firearms are NOT APPROVED for sale to the following states: California Hawaii Illinois Maryland Massachusetts Minnesota New York Go With a Hi Point

strickjh2005: The only issue I have with the Hi-points are that the slides are so heavy that they cylce much slower than I can pull down recoil and be on target for the next round. Sig Mosquito is faster.

skynut831: FINALLY!! A truly honest objective view with no BULL SPIT on these pistols! I own both!!! Although I do not consider them low end !! Never a ftf or anything @500 rnds each!! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THAT PRECISE,HONEST AND NO BULL REVIEW !!

deerslayer303B: MDprepper, I appreciate your reviews, they are very informative. I picked up a Phoenix HP22A and Jimenez JA380 at a gun show today. That JA9 is next on the list. They will be great fishing and range guns. I love the looks of that JA9 it looks like any other higher end fire arm. Are you SURE the frame is Aluminum and the slide is Steel? I thought they were Zinc or actually ZAMAK 3, which is what the Hi Points slide is made of.

Tyler Durden: Hi- Point weighs less? I believe you , but I am shocked. I own a Hi-Point C9 and it is like a brick that shoots bullets. I never carry it on me, I sometimes carry it in the car, but I prefer my fire arms to hold 15+, and I feel the Hi Point isn't as accurate as my Glock or Sig.

Appolo Geticks: The 10 round 9mm carbine mags will fit into the 9mm pistols.

guy west: how bad is the chance of slide bite.?

Tyler Durden: 3:21 The Hi-Point Mag disconnect safety is so freaking easy to take out.

Robbie Fortner: I use strictly 10 round carbine mags in my c9, fits well that both guns fire the same mags, at least to me, like the combo, I have found very few problems especially after the break in period of about 100 rds per mag

snipervictim: Jimenez Arms JA9 i want one =)

Tracey Rainey: HI POINT IS NOT UGLY TO ME? IVE OWNED BOTH AND THE JENNINGS FAILED IN EVERY WAY EVERY TIME I FIRED IT. THE HI POINT DID FAIL BUT NOT NEARLY AS MUCH AS THE JENNINGS. TRUTH IS THE HIGH POINT WAS A BETTER GUN AND BUILD WAS WAY BETTER BUT THE JENNINGS KINDA FOOLED YOU INTO THINKING IT WAS MORE MAIN STREAM IN ITS LOOKS BUT BUILD WAS QUALITY WAS BAD. IF I RAN JIMENEZ ID WORK ON QUALITY AND THE OPERATION OF THE GUNS AND TRULY BECOME A GUN EVERYONE WANTS INSTED OF WHAT THEY HAVE TO SETTLE FOR. I HAVE SIG AND OTHERS BUT I TRULY WANT A HI POINT AGAIN.

guy west: have you shot either of the ? 

Brian Smith: I have owned both and would never own a ja9 again. My hi point ran flawless and my ja9 did not. Maybe my ja9 was older but also the history of the ja9 is not good. Also in my area all the gun shops carry hi point, but none of them carry ja9's. My hi point after some polishing and 100 round break in period has run flawless. I would trust my life with it. That just my opinion, do not hate the ja9 from what I wrote. Do your research and check multiple reviews, but I would not recommend this gun. 

mcminnman: Like comparing a dog turd to a cat turd... I have owned 2 HP's the C9 and .380 and a .22 Jimenez and 9mm. 

TRUTH MASTER TONY: I Liked, I Subscribed, and commented to your fine Channel. Please check out my Channel for a minute my friend and Subscribe, if you want. (: You sound like a cool person so Thank you !!! Tony ps interesting comparison, yes I like cheap guns, amen.

aj jackson: ja9 looks alot better

07wrx530: Hipoint way better by way at least it shoots

Brian Klibowitz: Jimenez 9mm is a revamped Bryco Jennings 9mm and the reason I know that is because I used to own a Jennings 9mm that I got for free and this pistol was the biggest pos I ever shot because when I shot it the slide flew off and hit me the face and that pos is also made out of pot metel the gun was good for a paper weight that you could throw your attacker My best advice to who owns these pos guns is to sell them at a gun show and buy a Hi-Point if can't afford any another gun there. Theres nothing wrong with the Hi-Point JHP 45acp I own one and It's a better quality gun then them pot metel pos Jimenezs

602Laoguy: i take the Hi point over that POS jimenez .. the Hi point Life time 

Alan Rauenhorst: Mag disassembly goes to bryco/jennings/jiminez. Dont break down a hipoint magazine if u dont want it put back together
