    Taht sound is the drop block. Well someone will help me out on this . It is to prevent the firearm from fireing if you drop it. The sound is normal.

    Now as for your problem with the hi-points breading like rabits. Haha.

    That too is normal. LOL

    I have a C-9 and a 4095 and aim to get the 995 but there are others on top of the list. Good luck finding th proper birth control. :p

    I find that my wife is an affective tool fr that. LOL
     
  4. I almost picked up the .45 at the same time but will probably wait until I find the comped 9mm...

    Thanks for telling me about the clinking noise...thought something was wrong with it...didn't get to fire her today...next Saturday should be able to....put 200 rds through her and tell y'all how she did!

    Good deal on the 995-- C9 is sort of high, but well within the tolerance of not "raping" you..

    All in all, Congrats!

    $300 aint a bad deal one quality firearm, not to mention TWO!!!

    Enjoy!! :D
     
  6. At first I though the same thing. That there was something really wrong with mine as well I shook it a little bit and listened to where it was comming from. I found that it was the counter weight.

    Hi Point should put a package together. All the hi point guns in one package with a special carrying case like the ryobi tools at home depot. Maybe throw in a flashlight and dustbuster. :D
     
  16. Or how about 'preparedness' or 'defender' packs of a carbine and pistol sold together in your choice of 9 or .40, soon (hopefully) to be available in .45? That would provide a package which should list retail price under $500 but could likely be found for around $300. But, if they are having problems keeping up with demand now, why bother?

    :!: :?:

     
  17. That would be some sweet lovin right there.
