    The shop that I bought my .40 from told me he has had the carbines on backorder for over six months. Do any of you folks have the same issue in your area's? :?:
     
  2. The Dunhams in my area just got a new shipment of 995's and 4095's this last week. They've always had at least one or two of each in stock for some time. I hope it stays that way, because as soon as they run another sale, my buddy and I are both jumping on a 995 :D

    Took me three months last year to find mine. They seem to stay in short supply around Houston.

    Gunshows aroudn here usualy have a few (overpriced). There is a shop in aberdeen SD that stocks all the models HP makes, all the time. Never been in there when he didnt have them all.

  7. The 995 carbine isn't hard to get around here. A used one runs about $150.00 to $175.00 OTD. A new one is between $200.00 to $220.00 OTD.

    I ordered a 40, after a week was told by my dealer he could not get one. period. I had him try for a 9, took a few days. I had to pay suggested retail.

    The other dealer in my area could not get either.

    Clearly there are different distributors with whom each dealer is working.

    good luck.

    The local Harrisburg show in PA had a bunch, a bit pricey but not too bad.

    As of last week there was a used 995 with ATI stock at ABG buyers in Corvallis. I didn't see the cost.
    2 friends and I ordered 3 995's and I also got a c9 from these guys. All 4 guns arrived in about a week. My total cost with shipping and background for both was $303.00! They charge cost +10% when ordering new guns.

    Sorry uncledarrel but I don't even have a C&R to be able to get a catalogue from those folks. Besides I'm more interested in the 4095.
