Agree!, then put a red dot on that baby and you own the range, the tool is so accurate with a good red dot, we draw small thumb size monsters and such over the target sheet, and shoot them at 35 yards! heck at that distance you could shoot little plastic figures if you have some.

Anyhow my wife and daughter prefer iron sights, so the red dot went back to its box

Hi, heard good things about both. One thing to keep in mind is that the Marlin is no longer in production so parts at some point could be a concern. That being said I kick myself for passing up on a Marlin CC in 9mm new for $250 at a gunshow last year. Whichever one you pic you really can't go wrong! Azrudy

Camp 9, just look at the two side by side.

The Hipoint is sloppily made, and there are machining marks all over the place, and it's just cheaply made.

The camp 9 is about Ruger quality.

wow, sloppily and cheaply made and machine marks everywhere? no offense, but that sounds like a gun snobbish comment to make...

I have a 995ts and it fires as well and as accurately as anything else. You buy a gun for its function, not because it's pretty...

If u want a cheap gun that will work when u use it the 995 is just fine.

Wait, i'm getting confuzelled here; isn't the "camp 9" the marlin model? Alternatively, are you making a ruger PC9 vs. Marlin Camp Carbine workmanship comparison?

IRT Darkfreedom:

I didn’t say it didn’t work, from what I’ve read Hipoints work good.
I’m just saying, I find them very crude.
It seems like something Harbor Freight could make.

IRT Orangello:

No, I just meant the workmanship seems comparable to an average Ruger gun, be it a 10/22 or whatever, as a comparison to what I thought of Hipoints.

well, I think many would agree that function is far more important than form. True the older style HP's are ugly, but the newer TS looks much nicer.

It’s not looks; it’s the quality of the weapon.
It’s below my quality standards, I wouldn't trust my life to it.

I’m not picky for instance I have no problems with Norinco guns, or the Maveric 88 shotgun they’re not pretty but they’re well made of good parts and they work.

and that's what makes this place so nice, we all have different opinions. I would use my HP in a life threatening situation because I know it well and I know it is dependable.
