    Hi Point announced they would release their 10mm carbine this month. I'm putting off my hog killing trip so I can get one to take along. I carry a 10mm pistol and reload to +P loads.

    This small rifle is very rugged and accurate out to 100 yards and lethal against most things I may encounter.

    My brother, I know there is some Hi-Point love out there, but in most circles, its like saying one has a right righteous case of the crabs.:D

    Good luck with the hog hunt, and be careful out there!:cool:

    Hi-Point love is going to be hard to find.

    As much as I hate hi point, a friend of mine has the 9mm version and I must say that it really is fun to shoot

    I have out shot a lot of high end pistols with a hi-point c-9. Their carbines are great fun to shoot and accurate

    :censored:, that gun is FUGLY!!! I guess it's good for a throwaway at least - if you toss it like a grenade. Surprised it racked & fired after taking a hit like that. I guess the big boys will have to step up their torture tests a bit...

    Ill be picking one up too. Hopefully they make an aftermarket chassis for it like they do the others. Ive been looking for an affordable 10mm carbine for a while.

    I just checked out their website - tempting at that price. I've paid close to that for a great blade (you don't have to reload...). You guys are possibly delaying home improvement projects with this thread...lol.

    I'm serious about guns, but curious - haven't decided if I'm $350 worth of curious though, lol. I'll take a beat up Colt 1911 over a new poly any day of the week.

    a predictable response where the brand is mentioned, albeit an uninformed one at that.

    Do you carry a Glock by chance? If so, there are better alternatives to the Hi Point for the same amount of money. They also make a 1911 and XD based versions as well.

    No I don't carry a Glock and can't imagine I ever would. I carry a S&W Model 39 everyday and I carry a EAA Witness 10mm Compact when I go to the field. I practice with both at the range although I shoot at close in targets with the 9 and longer range with the 10.

    Mtect systems
    Mechtechsystems kit $435-$500
    Glock 20 $600
    total $1035-$1100
    then you have to buy optics
    Hi-point msrp $389 once the get in stores $299 I know the original 995 carbine in 9 mm is capable of 100 yards shots on groundhogs and yotes
    there are a whole lot more people can afford $299 than $1100
    The Hi-point hate gets old they are no doubt ugly and not the sleekest guns around . but to say the are un-reliable or in accurate is total B.S. If the don't go bang every time hi-point will fix it so it does no questions ask . The c-9 I had years ago when that was all I could afford was just as accurate as my XD-40 the 9mm carbine sent way over 100 groundhogs to the bean field in the sky . I trust a hi-point way more than any semi auto Taurus makes I have seen way more Taurus gun go back for repair multiple times than hi-point

    If you pay attention to his original post, he carries a 10mm handgun of which he didn't specify the make until asked. I even bolded his reply in my quote to provide context to my suggestion. Hence why I asked if he had a Glock, so you can eliminate that cost if he did own a Glock, an XD or a traditional 1911 since they make a variant for each and made my recommendation based on that only. Not having to purchase the base handgun as part of the investment.

    So once again you are back to a marginal MSRP $435 vs a MSRP of $389. No sense in putting artificial costs, proposed real street pricing and other hypothetical for an argument that didn't exist until your reply. The Hi-Point could very well hit the market like Kel-Tec's infamous Sub2K of 10 years ago, coupled with short supply and high infatuation, drive prices to well over MSRP when available.
