Hi. Welcome to The Gun Rack. No doubt, your journey here has been a long one. But rejoice! For you have arrived at a place like no other. A place where goats and Chevettes dwell in harmony. A place where Glock fanboys and HiPoint hipsters coexist with mutual respect for one another. A place where even crocs are considered cool. Well, not really, but those that wear them are still accepted. Hell, even the owner of the site is a kilt wearing Californium. So register, log in, and become a part of the most eclectic gun forum on the interwebs. You'll be glad you did 😉

    I have one I have not used. I'm considering it putting on my 9mm Hi-Point but I am holding out thinking I may want to 45. By may I mean yes I do want one.

    There's an inexpensive one on Amazon for $23 shipped. 400 positive reviews. Hmmm

    Stopped by there - still quite a bit of stuff on the shelves - they have a number of categories marked at various percentages off - with everything not in one of those categories at 50% off - apparently magazines fall into the 50% off category.

    I was interested in getting some factory 308 ammo so I could bulk up my brass inventory now that I am reloading - but at $17.99 per box of 20 before the 20% off plus tax that is still around 75¢ per round which seems high considering my reloads are only running me about 35¢ each and online sources have it for around 60¢ per round. The 120 or so cases I have on hand can be reloaded a number of times each - not sure if I'll do any heavy metal competition this year but I was thinking I might be better off having enough brass to load for the entire season. Oh well.
    The handgun case was getting pretty thin but still quite a few rifles and shotguns on the rack.
    Lots of fishing stuff - bunch of camo gear - a number of trail cams - not much reloading stuff outside of a jug of Reloader 50 and half a dozen boxes of Small Pistol Magnum Primers (or at least I think that's what is was, regular price around $40 so $20 is not a bad deal - but not a primer I use. Some other misc reloading stuff - dies etc - but pretty well picked over.
    Boxes full of AR mags - though not necessarily top rater brands I didn't dig through them and I gave away enough CAA mags to last me a long time.

    The carbines are not my favorite thing ever...but they are not at all as heinous or ridiculous as their bullshit "pistols"

    @Uncle Jed don't tell anyone but I shot a 9mm carbine at the blast and I was quite impressed with it . Iron sights were easily picked up and took the 100 like it was made for it . Light , easy to acquire, and accurate .


    Shhhhhh

    Your secret is safe with me. I honestly don't know how you could go wrong with a Hi-Point carbine. Lifetime warranty, American made, under $300, and they shoot any kind of ammo you can shove in that magazine. On top of all of that, they are accurate at a reasonable range.

    Nope and lost track of the rounds because the guy that worked for me took it home for a while. Has to be crowding at least the 800 round mark.

    Not really. Frankly I don't intend to clean my .45 until it has a problem.

    I shot the same 9mm @Jimbo1 reluctantly mentioned... I have to say It was hideously ugly (as expected) but much like last minute Prom Date, it did everything you expected it to do and just as easily!

    If the High Tower Bullpup kit is ever becomes a reality, I will very likely pick up one of the .40 Carbines to build...

    I honestly don't find the newer ones ugly at all. In fact, I actually like how they look. Fit and finish is lacking, but that isn't too hard surprising. Just shows the difference of opinion on looks.

    No you are suppose to throw them out and buy a new one when they are dirty....


    It is like HP printers.... More hassle to buy new cartridges then the whole new printer!
