Joseph G.: I like your reference to the range and what kind of ammo is permitted. The indoor range I visit can't allow rifle ammo, to preserve the steel, but pistol ammo carbines are fine. I have the 4595, and found that the ProMags work okay when I insert the 14-round mag while depressing the mag release button and chambering the first round.

MrRayMac1963: It's an ugly duck, but i love mine, and you can't beat the Hi-point warranty. Only wish they would do a factory hi cap mag. On a related note, using the Promag 20 rounders will void your warranty. Thanks for the review MD.

5starsteve1: im sick of people with there scummy coments..most of these people probably dont even have a gun...i have a high piont and its fine. you need to maintain it better than other war proven guns. and in communist N.Y. you cant even buy these anymore...a semi auto is a nice gun to have for any reason...

ruby kaufman: One sweet thing is that, the Mag's are inner changeable between the carbine and the pistols or at least my 45 calibers are and I would assume the 9 mm is too! Plus I hear the 9 mm and the 380 Mag's are the same as well.

Michael Mitchell: I picked up my 995 classic at a gunshow for $150 with 3 magazines then picked up a ATI polymer stock for $89 and picked up another 9 10 round Hi-Point magazines.

ray lowery: i have a Ruger mini-14 i bought years ago when they first came out, never thought of buying another semi-automatic rifle after shooting the mini-14 with 30 round bannana clips duck-taped back to back. Anyone reading this can tell me the advantages of switching to the Hi Point Carbine over the mini-14? The only reason i would consider it would be because of the round being used, i dont know how far a .223 would travel after it goes through the sorry piece of garbage that tries to enter my home? I did have a 9mm pistol once, liked the accuracy of the round, nice flat trajectory to the bullit. Any ideas to this situation would be appreciated, thanks 

Not8upwthit: They go with the 9's due to the weight. Defending my home I'll take the 45 acp EVERY time. 230gr at 830' per second is devastating. Sure I like my 9's as they have their place no doubt. Find one person that's been in a gun fight that would grab the 9 over the 45 with the same capacity. Not going to happen.

fredfurner: where did you get the mag holders for the stock?

Kevin Queen: anyone ever slugged the barrel on your hi point 9mm carbine. Im trying to figure out which cast bullet to buy

sunsetdarkness0231: I've grown up around fire-arms. Specifically rifles although I leaned towards hand guns. I've only shot three tactical rifles ,but never really had the chance to familarize myself with them. I've personally never owned a gun and am planning to buy one soon. I was wondering if this was a good first time gun in general. Not just as a tactical rifle ,but just something to start on. I know it might seem a little weird to get a tactical rifle as your first fire-arm but it's the class of gun I chose. I'm planning to get the .40.

Russell Suender: Did you have trouble loading the magazine? A bit tough after 7-8 rounds.I know it's necessary to have a tight spring,but this much? 

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 others...

GREG GREER: SHOT MINE FOR THE 1ST TIME TODAY, MAN THIS THING SHOOTS LIKE BUTTER!!! I LOVE IT!! GOT THE 9MM FOR PLINKING, THINKING ON PICKING UP THE 45 FOR HOME DEFENSE, GREAT WEAPON HI POINT!!! GOOD VID PREPPER.

Russell Suender: Fun for plinking,accurate at 50 yards,tight grouping,But I want to change the generic looking sites to a red dot type.

Siunloader: Am really thinking about one of these.... I have an XD chambered in .40 it makes a lot of sense to have a cool "ugly" rifle that shoots the same round. Really good review! Count me as a new subscriber.

wagstag89: I have the .40 and love it. They aren't pretty but mine is extremely accurate and will feed any ammo you put in it no problem. If you see one for a good price scoop it up. I bought mine right after all the gun craziness started because I found a guy selling one for a good price and figured they were about to go up..sure enough, the only ones I've seen for sale around here are going for over $100 more than I paid for mine

DOUGLAS HOTCHKISS: i am confident i am the cheapest sob around, so i have a hp 22 auto i got for 100, a 38 snub nose for 200, added to an old 12 ga. like 200. i'm not going to war as far as i can tell , so that seems adequate. - but this carbine appeals to me alot, i could pick one up for 300. ( the last carbine i had was an M-l i paid 75 bucks for)

DOUGLAS HOTCHKISS: sub 2000 go for twice the price of a hi point around here.

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)

ellmiller2013: Cheap weapon system but still just a pistol cartridge your firing mind as well step up to a cheap rifle system. just saying.

SKKC1986: 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

MDPrepper: What "cheap rifle system" would you recommend for under $300?

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

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.

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

MDPrepper: MD is the profession. Yes, I'm a doctor but not anywhere near Maryland

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: Thank you very much!

jamy austin: so true it is $285 at their site sorry for the mix up Bro

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: I have an AK with a 75 round drum mag for such scenarios. . .oh and a "slidefire" stock

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 truck gun

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
