Have you priced a 3hp vibrating, fully-hided, braided tail vibra-filly lately? I hear that the zebra paint job can cost $300 extra by itself.

I had a HP carbine in .40 and it sucked ass the first couple hundred rounds. It will get better. Also, if you do have to send it back to Ohio, they will make it worth your while. Great American company, even if the pistols leave something t be desired...

Do not give up on her!

I was at the range not the other day; but, 2 weeks ago a firing position next to me had a Hi-point purchased for $250 at a local dealer. Drop about 400 rounds and not one jam.

I would like to get one; but, all the sellers locally have said that the carbine is allocated!

Dude, be more specific; this is the interwebs where some people consider a dildo or a fleshlight to be a "hand tool".
That's classic.

A friend of mine has one of these, it runs pretty flawless. Maybe give it a good cleaning an a little time.

my dad had one of the 995s and a c9. Both had a breaki-in period before they would run smoothly. The c9 even had to have the lips on the magazine adjusted slightly, but after that they stopped jamming. also as others have mentioned, if it is a defect in the gun hi-point does have an awesome lifetime warranty on their guns from what I remember. Send it in and they will fix it for free, and a few other people I knew on a previous forum sometimes got a free mag to go with it when they had to send it in.
