    I know there are a lot of Hi Point fans on here, so thought I'd post this.

    I think it would make a great inexpensive, beat to hell, last resort, BOB bag, back up for very well under $300.

    I did fire one the other day at the range and they are very sturdy, well fitted, feels good to shoulder to target and...very accurate at 50-100 yards w/ iron sites, out of the box and ate everything I feed it. :eek:

    Just what one may need to just get a little more accuracy, to reach out a little farther on target, than a handgun. ;)

    Yes, I, Jack, being of somewhat sound mind and reason, YOMV, said they may have a useful purpose! :cool:

    I may just have to make that my first 45 caliber weapon. Really wanted the 4095 carbine since I do in fact shoot the XD40.

    I wondered if they would ever get that done. I went looking on a Hipoint forum a few weeks ago & it was still a point of contention there.

    The only reason i haven't bought one in 9mm (for plinkin fun) is the lack of higher capacity magazines. The .45 really should have the drum magazine option, IMO.

    I've got a couple of 15 round mags,(yeah I know, is not 30! ) and to me are more than enough. When the whole family goes shooting each of us loads and fires 5 rounds each only.

    @ home The 9mm carbine rests by my bedside with the 15rnds and a fresh mag ready too.:cool:

    Finally - "Vaporware" no longer! Been awaiting it for a few years.......
    My M995 has been needing a 'big sister' in the worst way...... ;)

    I just wish it used the Colt 1911 10 and 15 round mags.

    Quote from the article.
    It would be nice if they added some proof to back this statement up.
    I like the HP carbines but the limited capacity of the single stack magazines keeps me away.
    They are otherwise inexpensive and dependable guns. Having owned a small collection of them in the past.

    Nice to see they finally updated the look and got rid of the damn "Planet of The Apes" stigma.

    He uses that Glo-On stuff. It works OK but not well as advertised. On the upside it doesn't require a lot of light to charge it. I ordered some a while back. The sent some of the stick on stuff with it. I put it on my favorite remote control. It is a little easier to find. I have it on one of my pistols. It works. But I think they are a little generous with the up to 12 hr thing.

    glow stuff on rifle

    It's glow-on, this effect was created by applying a dab of the phosphorescent pigment on top of the iron sights adjustments etc with indentations or bass relief numbers, lines etc. a quick smudge with the fingertip spreads the pigment removes the extra stuff and sets the glow stuff in the bass relief settings.
    There could be other ways to do it, but at the time this seemed fast and convenient, although I tried a couple of times before i got it right.:D

    You have GOT to be kidding me.

    If you put a dress and lipstick on a pig, is it pretty?

    I have seen two brand spanking new Hi Point slides break in half at CHL classes.

    They are pot metal.

    There is one use for the HiPoint that I can agree with. Buy a case and stash it back. When the SHTF, sell each gun with a box of ammo and you could make a fortune from the clueless people that never saw it coming or you could trade then to your enemies for stuff you can use.
