Hey guys, it's been a long time and an even longer road. so I guess a lil back round is in order.... I started coming around here years ago looking for information on these fine guns. I ended up buying a 4095TS carbine and 40JHP pistol, I loved them. But money got tight and I sold them for $850 (he wasn't bright). 3 years went by and other guns and projects came. I built an AR, got a new duty gun, customized a mag fed shotgun, got a nice C&C pistol, even found a gun my wife actuality liked and bought her one (that was hard to find). Yet I always wanted another pistol caliber carbine. Well last year I tried with the Just Right Carbine but upon arrival the gun was bound up internally. So they sent a second, that one too was crap. Quite upsetting for a $700 carbine, so I asked for a refund and decided to buy a Hi Point 4595TS carbine and Ruger American 30-06 with the money and thats when things start to go sideways. We had already had a run of crappy luck last year. I got fired in January (luckily I had 2 jobs), then a week later my wife got sick out of no where and had to have her gull bladder removed. A few other problems arose but ya know that life right, its a b***h. So by the time I started having problems buying a new gun in March we were used to it. Friday, April 3rd. rolls around and I finally have my refund from the botched attempt at buying a Just Right Carbine. I then find out that all the money in my account is frozen, someone hacked my bank and tried to spend all my money a few states away. I talk to the fraud department and they say it looks good on their end, I'll be back in business with all my money by Monday. Easter Sunday, April 5th. I work overnight as a Security officer, had a 12hr shift the night before, and only get a few hours off before I go back for a double, but holiday pay right. I see my Wife and Daughters, have Easter morning with them, get 4 hours of sleep and I'm off to work again. I don't make it, I wont see my home again for 114 days. At 3:05pm coming off an interstate exit ramp the front tire of my motorcycle is taken out by a piece off wood on the road, the bike starts to go down and it hits a curb. I'm thrown from the bike and exit ramp on to a city street at around 50MPH. With in seconds of hitting the pavement A 2014 Ford F150 runs me completely over. Ya know how they say accidents happen in slow motion, its true. By the time that happened for me I was under the truck, watching my brand new Springfield XDS sliding across the road in front of me. Before I could even thing the rear axle hits me and it's over. I'm laying face down on the hott asphalt and I know its bad...but my training keeps me alive. Stay calm, stay awake, keep talking, control your heart rate. The fire station is less than a mile away first responder's arrive in less than 5mins. They cut the clothes and helmet off me, get me onto a back board and drive me to a near by field where I'm transferred to a life flight chopper and airlifted to the hospital. I'm awake and remember everything until I get into the emergency room, the last thing I see is a nurse quickly putting a needle into my IV and then I finally lose conciseness. I dont wake up for another 3 1/2 weeks. I break 23 bones, 10 of them ribs. My right shoulder is crushed, left arm and left ankle are compound fractured. I shattered my pelvis, broke the top off my right femur and then put it through the socket or my right hip. I have nerve damage in my left arm and both legs. Every one of my internal organs is bruised and I'm put on soo much pain medication they have to give me a tracheotomy because I can no longer breath on my own. I shouldn't be alive. Somehow I make it, it takes 10 surgeries, more than 60 pins, 10 plates, and hundreds of stitches and staples to put me back together. I spend 47 days in the hospital and then get moved to a rehab/nursing facility for another 67 days. For my family to get by all my guns are sold except 2. My grandfathers .22lr rifle and the Springfield XDS that was on me (the police had it for safe keeping since the accident) Not like it really mattered, with my right shoulder destroyed I wont be able to shoot a 12ga or rifle anytime soon, but none the less that hurt. The road coming home was unexplainable, there just arnt words. PTSD is it's own hell, I'm damn sure never gonna be the same guy. I'm only 30 and feel like I'm 70. pain is all the time, but I've worked through the pain and gotten most of my functioning back. So we arrive to now, almost a year later. I can walk, nerves are slowly coming back, my right shoulder is pretty screwed though (no more shotguns or high powered rifles) also lost most of the mobility in the right shoulder due to extra bone growing in places it shouldn't. For the most part I'm ok I guess, feel like I got run over by a truck most days but I guess thats expected. I wanted to try to get back to normal and for me guns are normal. So when I figured pick up where I left off and buy a Hi Point 4595TS carbine. last Friday I did just that . I went out to like 5 gun shops and managed to find one at the last place in town. Got it for $300 out the door and bonus they had an indoor range (shoot free when you buy a gun). Just as I expected my shoulder can handle it nicely, I love it just the same as my 4095TS I had a few years ago. Now comes the fun part, customizing it!!!! I got a slant fore grip, lone star 15.4in full length top rail, flip up sights, a Bushnell TRS25 reddot, and thingmister 1911 magazine catch for it. I'm also thinking of getting a barrel shroud with built in rail and maybe putting another small rail on the side. So I can add tactical light and laser but those can wait. Only questions I have is magazines. I haven't owned a 1911 yet so I don't really have any experience with good or bad mags in that area. I'm also wondering about high capacity long magazines or drums and if they are reliable. I know this ones long and all but that s life right. Thoughts and questions are welcome. thanks guys.
