    I love mine. It is fairly balanced and is a reliable gun. It has eaten most ammo I have put thru it and is pretty accurate. Buy it, you wont regret it

    I have an older 9mm Hi Point carbine, and I'll tell ya, it's a blast. Accuracy is surprising, too. I wouldn't mind picking up another of these carbines as I'm cutting back to only three calibers, .22LR, 9mm, and .223.

    I have the newer model 9mmTS and it's a blast. Buy extra mags and go have fun. I agree with ccviper you won't regret it. I almost bought the .45TS at a gone show 2 weeks ago. Bought a 1911 instead.

    I have the 995TS for the last 4 years when the first came out and it has been a great fun carbine. It is dead on target right out of the box with its iron sights and its a perfect 100yds sport carbine. Don't expect it to be any better than that range.

    I went thru the tacticool stage and tried to hang everything I could on the plastic weaver rails and including taking off the std. rear sight to make more room on the rail. Big mistake. The biggest weakest point are those plastic weaver rails. One can put a small red dot and co-witness it with the ironsight and your good to go, but don't remove the rear ironsight because you will go back to ironsights.

    My two grandsons know it affectionately as the monkey gun and love shooting it. They have learned about Kentucky windage when shooting at the 100yd range. I would recommend it to anyone. The warranty is lifetime and HP's customer service is IMHO above most others.

    Love my 995, you can toss on a cheap red dot on top and go have some fun with no problems at all. Every now and then i swap back to the iron sights, but for the most part i just go with the scope. I have a cheap laser on the front too, but it's more for tacticool look than function since i can't see that dot 100 yards away. I would recommend a Hi-Point to anyone that isn't buying a gun just for looks, but i consider mine beautifully ugly.

    I guess since I have a .40 pistol, and a .40 revolver, you guys are going to tell me that I need a matching .40 carbine!

    I wouldn't, i'd say buy whatever you want. I went with the 9mm because it was the last one available, Cabela's couldn't keep them in stock a year ago. But lately the .40 & .45's are way more available than they once were. So buy what you want, but i would recommend buying one if for nothing else as a fun gun.
