Another new High Point owner here. Took some Christmas money to the nearest store I knew carried Hi Points, determined to come home with one. I was on the fence of wether I wanted the 9mm because of cheaper ammo, or the .40 for a little more oomph to it. Of course, when I got to the store, no Hi Points in the case. Figured I was going home empty handed, but asked the guy anyway just in case. Sure enough, had one Hi Point left in the back, a .45. Now that bad boy is mine. I got the Hi Point because I wanted to stay inexpensive. Just going to be an occasional trip to the range gun. But now after perusing through these forums, my wish list keeps getting longer, a Joey keychain (are those still available? can someone tell me how to get one ), maybe some stuff from thingmeister, painting the lettering, etc etc. And now I am scheming how to get a 995TS, "for my kids" because they can handle that easier than a .45 pistol. And then all the various training classes. Could sure spend a lot of money real quick. Anyway, finally got to the range the other day. Only had 150 rounds, went through it all with zero problems. 100 rounds of perfecta, 50 Winchester. That perfecta is dirty stuff, but it worked just fine. I haven't shot in quite a while and it showed, but it sure was fun. Sorry for the long first post, I'm usually more of a lurker than a poster.
