9,40, or 45

Discussion in 'Hi-Point Carbines' started by wsmccurry, May 13, 2015.

  1. Which do you prefer. Seems like 9s seem to be the most popular here but I've only been looking on this site for a little bit. Personally I bought the 40 and love it.
     
  2. I'm .40 guy. I have the JCP and the matching carbine. I wanted something a little more punch then a 9mm

    My preference is .45, which I don't have at the moment. 9mm is cheaper to shoot. Hoping for a JHP in the fairly near future, but that all depends on $$$

    I like the 45 and the one you didn't mention, the 380.

    .40 is my cup of tea. 3.8 and a Kahr. Way better than a 9 and you get more rnds in the mag than a .45. It's lighter to carry. Has one hell of a shock wave with it. Ballistics jell tells the story. Kinda like holding an M80 or silvertip firecracker in your hand when it fires though. Wakes your *ss right up!

    :rofl: lmao
     
  10. I've got a 9 and .45

    I don't have any .40 pistols but I do have 10mm. I'm watching for a good deal on a .40 so I can convert it to 10mm

    I guess that means my list would be 9,10,11.25

    HP PISTOL:
    is $139 good enough?

    For a carbine, just grab it. No time to wait :D
     
  12. Nothing wrong with that :D
     
  13. The carbines are cool but pistols come and go. I'll find a good deal, grab it, and somebody needs an inexpensive HD gun ... the handgun goes to them.

    The carbines are cool; the handguns are pretty heavy and clumsy in your hand. They are good pistols at a great price point but not particularly noteworthy.

    The carbines are cool.
    As for the 4095; I'm just waiting for a good deal on one.

    For PCC I prefer 40s&w it shoots nice n flat with a like better punch than the 9mm.

    Do not wait.
    If you can get one under $300 all in, (shipping and FFL) do it.
    I have a local source, but they rarely get the 4095. But they have one now :D
    $260.76 right now, it will sell within a week I'd say...

    I prefer the 4095 Classic of the few HP Carbines I have. Maybe it is just this particular gun. It was used when I got, but it shoots great! And I can match the JCP magazines with it also.

    If I wanted something above a 9mm, I wouldn't go with at .40, I would be a .357. If you look at ballistics between a 9mm and a .40, there isn't a whole lot of difference. Too many people think the .40 is todays 10mm - NOT! I had a S&W Sigma 10mm in 2005. I would not be able to take the recoil at my age with the wrist/hand strength I have today.
     

  20. I'm a .45 kind of guy, just bought my first 1911 and I fell in love.
