Default 9mm carbine

That's it for me. No Hi-Caps, no Sale....I'll either get the Kel-Tec because it Folds In Half, or something shorter that takes ext. Mags...

A little tweaking and it was shredding a hole in the middle of the target at about 40 yards. The peep sight is good enough for someone that needs bifocals and I think any kind of optic on it would be a waste considering the guns limitations range wise. I think I found my new "plinker". I sure won't be afraid to scratch it or get it wet so it will make a great little "trail" gun. Wish it came with more then one magazine, but for the price, I can see why it didn't.
Any kind of optic would be a waste?

-Hack, cough-

It sounds like it proved itself accuracy wise. Admittedly, a 6-18 x 50 mm would be a tad goofy perching atop... Everyone has their own opinion, but a red dot calls a pistol caliber carbine home like a chocolate egg in an Easter basket. Faster on target, leading a moving target, low light/ dark advantages,and possibly more accuracy.

I picked up a Hi-Point 995TS a couple months ago and really like it. For under $300 new you can't beat it. Eats any 9mm I throw in it. Added a Bushnell red dot sight and was blowing out the center of a target at 50yrds. Even at 100yrds I could keep all shots in the kill zone.

I've owned both the 955 and the sub2K. The only thing that's better about the KelTec is the folding aspect. It needs a butt stock since the stock is too short and like everything else with KelTec it's hard to get parts and accessories. It's over priced because it's underproduced, it's a pain to clean since the bolt is tricky to get past the hammer. The sights require a tight cheek weld which knock off your hearing protection.
The 955 is plain and simple, easy in every regard, accurate and reliable.

Before there are any more Kel tec products in my safe kel tec has to send a check for R&D. I am not fixing their junk all the time for free.

I had to look at my paper work to see how long ago I bought the model 995
9mm high point rifle. It was 11/28/03 when I bought and it has had thousands of rounds thru it.
my 2 sons grew up shooting it till the barrel was too hot to touch.
In all that time it was never a problem. It broke 1 firing pin about a year ago,
I called the company and they sent me a new pin and spring free of charge.
You cant beat service like that!
Its not pretty but its built like a tank and will shot whatever you feed it.

well just talked to Promag and they said they have had no problems reported to them on there 15 rd mags and they did not even know that that notice was still being shiped with the 995 , they said that was a old problem with the old owners , not sure if it was Hipoint owners or Promag , but was told there are no current problems and they think Hipoint just did not want people using other peoples mags in there guns , seem to look and work fine in mine for what it is worth , and no I will not repair any bodys guns the have problems with them. anybody ever had first hand problems with the Promag 15 rd mags in there guns ?

If you loosen the grip screw on the side shown in the picture do they still work? The pistols do not and that is the reason Hi Points are an absolute no go in my world.
If I write a post and it sounds like I'm trying to tell you what's best for you, it's because I write like crap.
