I paid $189.00 for my High Point 45. If you want a semi-auto with (I am guessing) a Pot-Metal slide; then that is the Gun for you. Especially if you like to Ejaculate the bullets. I also ended up getting the 40 Cal..Don't know why, I went stupid I guess. When you see (or when I see) a "New In Box" Semi-Auto 40 Cal for $150.00, or a 45 Cal for $189.00, I just go numb and think Truck Gun - Cheap!Must buy!...............And besides, you heard the guy, the best gun ever! NOT!!!!
