Very little other than someone coming through your house door in the middle of the night. It is not a hunting firearm.
Not typically used for hunting of any kind, but I suppose it would work for varmint or predators if ranges were kept close.
I used to be a cop and had to put a deer that got clipped out of it's misery. Even at very close range, using 115gr corbon +P Self Defense JHP, and three aimed shots it was not an optimal kill. If you are gonna spend around $1.50 a round, spend it on a good rifle round 150gr or better with a good deal more velocity.
You *can* kill just about anything with any well placed round, but do your quarry a favor and use the right round for the job.
That being said, I never had any problems with my hi-point carbine, or my hi-point .45 ACP pistol. No jams, would eat lots of different kinds of rounds, and had a great warranty. They were kind of hard to get apart, and I ended up trading both of them in for other fire arms.
Final story, people give hi-points a lot of grief, but it wasn't any less scary having one pointed at me point blank. A gun is a gun. My ideal gun is one that goes "bang" after every trigger pull.
