who makes a stock for it? I've been looking , but it's built in to the receiver as far as I can tell . I would love to throw a Magpul on it.

ATI made a stock for it. Not sure if they still do but it looks pretty sweet. Kinda Beretta Stormish though. It's the one I'd like to get if I could find a Hi-Point Carbine.

You can't find a HI Point in Texas? I'll check out the ATI, thanks

I just found them. Holds 14, not sure 4 rounds is worth it.

Apparently in the northern suburbs of Dallas there are a dearth of decent gun stores and even pawn shops. I did see a carbine on sale but it was at the tail of the panic so they were trying to get $600 for it.

Yeah, that's gonna happen.

I prefer to pay cash for all my shooting activities. That's not a gubmint paranoia thing so much as making sure finances are kept separate and I don't get accused of spending grocery money on ammo thing

All the same, I did finally see some available at Bud's Gun Shop so I'm thinking about ordering and explaining to the missus later.

I get the financial dilemma, I get the same situation with my old lady.

I bought mine used, about a year ago $225. 995TS, As others have said, accurate/reliable, and just a blast to shoot. I would consider the 9mm from an ammo cost standpoint. This thing can really eat.......Then you can always step up to +P, If you need a little xtra punch......

I shot a 9 many years ago,15 maybe. I loved it other than the gritty feel of the action, but it was new. A Styrofoam cup literally blew about 50 yards in front of us while shooting it, guess what happened.

It became Holy?

Of course, after complaining I can't find a carbine I ran across one yesterday for $275. Argh! If I buy it before I get a gun cabinet my wife will shoot me with it. She's already complaining about how I currently store my rifles and I really do need a solution that involves a lock.
