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
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
Kevin Queen: anyone ever slugged the barrel on your hi point 9mm carbine. Im trying to
figure out which cast bullet to buy
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?
fredfurner: where did you get the mag holders for the stock?
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.
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.
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
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)
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: 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.
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
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
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
Rick Head: Very noble profession. Thank you for your service.
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)
