    I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on one of these. I'm thinking about getting one just cuz there cheap and cheap to shoot.

    I do. Not bad for the money, but it's nothing to brag about. Accuracy is surprisingly good up to about 50 yds. Clips from the 9mm hi point pistols fit it too.

    I've seen 15 rounders but can't remember manufacturer. Maybe saw them at cheaper than dirt.

    ProMag makes 15 round. I've had issues w/ some of their mags in other firearms. I'd rather have 10 go bang the a jam w/ 15.

    I just ordered one of these and I can't wait to get it. I think it's great that it takes 9mm rounds. I have heard only good things about them even when compared to larger Carbines.

    I just ordered it Thursday from Sun State Guns and Ammo down in Fla. I paid $249.00 brand new plus $35.00 shipping to the FFL. The FFL is charging $60.00 (including the background check). I also bought 3 additional clips for $17.00 each. So that's a total of $395 all fees included. I looked high and low and this is the only vendor I found anywhere who had one. I was also looking for a Kel Tec Sub 2000 with the Glock 19 set up... Those are absolutely no where to be found right now.

    I hear that the Pro Mag 15 rd mags that are problematic are the A1 models . Pro Mag has since released a A3 model that has been completely debugged. If you pick one up make sure the description in the spec says model A3.

    Yeah they do. The best I could have done would b to have found one in NJ so I could have saved shipping. Anyway it's a sweet gun. Can't wait to get it.

    Bummer, I would say move to michigan but finding a job thats worth a damn isn't easy. If ya have a clean record its not hard to get a gun though.

    I really do feel for you guys out there in those anti-gun states. I live here in the free state of Idaho. I picked up a high-point 995ts for my wife. I paid $225+ 6% state tax. Awesome little gun to shoot we were hitting milk jugs at 150 yards with it.

    In NJ you can't do Anything but take ur gun to a range then straight home. No carry ever. We don't even have the Castle doctrine. If someone breaks into ur home they want you the home owner to try to escape before defending urself. WTF is that?

    Wow... here in Idaho anyone can open carry and a ccp is as easy as having a clean record and paying $50 (my wife and I both carry). You can also use deadly force in defending yourself, others, or property.

    The way things are going we could all be subject to laws like they have in NJ.
