RogueGoverment: I saw these at a gun show I attended recently, I think the 9mm version was
running $319.00. When I picked it up I didn't care for the weight, it
seemed heavier than it needed to be, felt like picking up a chunk of
steel...I chose not to buy it and will put the money I would have spent on
this toward some other gun. The pluses are affordability and a lifetime
warranty. These are commonly referred to as the Planet of the Apes gun
(ugly) or the poor mans "assault rifle". Its not for me, but will work for
Carryingcowgirl: Great video! I have one layaway! Check out my channel if you get a chance;)
MDPrepper: Thank you very much!
Rick Head: Very noble profession. Thank you for your service.
MDPrepper: MD is the profession. Yes, I'm a doctor but not anywhere near Maryland
Rick Head: Does the MD in your name mean you are a doctor, or are you from maryland?
ellmiller2013: Cheap weapon system but still just a pistol cartridge your firing mind as
well step up to a cheap rifle system. just saying.
MDPrepper: What "cheap rifle system" would you recommend for under $300?
jamy austin: No problem I have no issue correcting myself LOL I am buying a C9 and the
995TS also cause their cheap and dependable.
MDPrepper: You will enjouy them both. I've fired both for many years and never had a
problem even with inexpensive ammo.. Happy Shooting!!
MDPrepper: Well that sounds correct. Thanks for the update
jamy austin: so true it is $285 at their site sorry for the mix up Bro
jamy austin: It was the C9 9mm pistol that was $179
MDPrepper: I just checked their website and they list at $285 for the base model. Not
sure where you go the $179
jamy austin: The 995TS goes for $179.00 factory website
jimmy rodriguez: U have a lot of valid points ill be getting my hi point piston and a hi
point carbine I've had a few weapons nothing ever legal but its time for my
wife and I to get legal and u can't put a price in safety but for the price
of hi point firearms I'm sold
aviationfreak08: The bullet button in California is stupid
MDPrepper: Wow $180 good find!! You'll enjoy it
MDPrepper: I love mine. I just picked up a second one (in the original ugly stock) a
few weeks ago. Posted a vid on it as well. This are one of the best kept
secrets of the carbine world!
MDPrepper: Well at a man sized target I'd say 50 yards for decent accuracy. 100 yards
might be a bit difficult but possible if you're a good shooter
trebor ozal: I own two of these. I have had zero problems and run the 15 round mags.
MDPrepper: HP Carbine vs Keltec Sub2000. . .hmm you might just need to wait a few days
and you'll have my opinion (I'll be making a vid soon!)
Jeffrey Peterson: I bought the .45 Hipoint for my first gun because I didn't know Hipoint was
the Hyundai of guns. However I haven't had any problems with it
jordanaug81: Ive heard bad things about kel-tec in general from very reputable sources
that they break down very quickly, they crack, they break and the fit &
finish in general is horrible, if you get one make a review after you shoot
a couple hundred rounds.
wayne clark: Ar7 is good for survival not lots of shooting
CentralNYPrepper: I've had mine for years and it's a good gun. Just gotta make sure to keep
it oiled well.
Reindeer911: It depends. I have an older Charter Arms version which was notorious for
feeding issues. I can't comment on the Henry version in that regard if they
were able to fix it or not. Ultimately was able to fix the problem by
putting a small radius in the bottom of the chamber. Accuracy is
excellent... I'm getting about 1 MOA out of mine. Also has the advantage
that it is the only gun that I know of currently available that floats, so
would be an excellent boat or swamp gun. (Cont)
moderndesignworks: haha, that's good.........love the slidefire stock!!!
MDPrepper: Indeed!! Not that I don't like my higher priced arms but I'm more ready to
use-and-abuse my lower cost options. A 9mm can kill you just as dead as a
.223 (and 4 men with 10 rounder carbines will most likely beat out a single
guy wielding his safe queen with a 30 rounder) Later, MDP
alajeff: Nice review. A buddy of mine wants one pretty bad. I'm a Hi-point fan. lol.
MDPrepper: Yes, yes it is!
MDPrepper: Thank you Sir!
MDPrepper: I own several Kel Tecs and all have functioned well. The Sub2000 has been
completely reliable with about 700 rounds through it and only cleaned 3
times. I recently picked up the KT PF9 with Ceracoat that has an improved
fit and finish over the older KT models and has been completly reliable
after 500 rounds (cleaned twice). I've got review vids on both! KT has come
a long way
wayne clark: Can get it for 220.00$ and 45cal for 265$
azbear621: Enjoy shooting my Hi point carbine a lot. Its fun and havent had a feed
issue yet on it.
rdnkrfnk: my wife actually likes the older stock it fits her good n one thing ive
learnt after 24yrs of marriage is if she likes it dont fix it lol thanks
fer the info imma buy her a cpl of new mags to go in the side saddle
holster that was on it when i bought it
jordanaug81: Thats great to know! Ive been debating over the hi-point or kel-tec and
with the available hi-cap mags for the kel-tec looks like the 2000 is the
one i'll end up going with, thanks.
MDPrepper: I have an AK with a 75 round drum mag for such scenarios. . .oh and a
MDPrepper: I've got the Kel Tec that accepts Glock mags. . .Love it!! I favor it over
the Hi Point (I've got a vid or 2 on it as well) It would make an excellent
MDPrepper: She's not pretty but she's functional. Great little carbine
Lee Schmedthorst: I've got the Hi Point .45 carbine. got about 1000 rounds thru it so far and
no probs at all
Reindeer911: $300? Seems like it would be a toss between the Hi Point and the Kel Tec
Sub 2000. Point in favor of the Hi Point if using .45 ACP. 2 points in
favor of the Kel Tec is that it folds in half to be VERY compact when
stowed, and also uses commonly available mags like Glock, etc. I'm
basically looking for something to replace my AR-7 for a survival rifle.
Accuracy is great, but has feeding issues like most do. Also .22LR while
fine for bagging squirrels is lacking in stopping power.
MDPrepper: That's "Doctor Redneck" or "Redneck, MD" I didn't spend four years in
medical school and five years of residency training to have my proper title
simply dropped by an adolescent
TheXtro101: It may not be the best looking firearm out there.But,for the horde of
zombies,the "living dead" are not gonna care what it looks like. Decided to
get 1 for myself towards the end of this past summer(995 model).Just in
case if "12/21/12" turns out tobe a,"ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE",I wanna be ready :)
dawan antonio: Mag capacity isn't an issue as far as my hp 45 carbine as I have modded a
few 15 round 1911 clips. Also these clips can actually hold up to 17-18
rounds. .45 for Max stopping, that's y I chose this over Kel tec sub 2000,
but anything under .45 is for pussies imo
MDPrepper: Yeah these are a great intro into the center fire semi-auto world without
entering into the realm of the AR or AK price point. I love it for what it
is (and yeah I'd still take and AR or AK as first choice but the HP is
accurate and reliable for what it is)
MDPrepper: Ugly but effective!!
MDPrepper: Nope, never had any problems at all with rifle mags in the pistol. The
aftermarket 15 rounders don't seem to fit the pistol (just a bit of an
update that I forgot to mention in the vid)
MDPrepper: HA!! Nice comment. It might just indeed be the Hyundai of guns. . .oddly
enough, I drive a Hyundai. . .probably for the same reasons now that I
think about it. It might not be pretty but it just works so damn well!!
Enjoy the carbine!!
Rocdenindy: i am thinking about a carbine purchase. whats your opinion between the
hipoint and the keltec sub2000?
