First off hello everyone! I'm so glad I found this forum. I was pleasantly surprised that there is a forum dedicated to these firearms. I have always loved guns of any type. I have been really into airguns for the past several years. I have acquired quite a collection of custom airguns. I finally took the plunge and went to my first gun show this past weekend. I walked out with my first firearm, a 9mm Springfield XD Mod2. Went to my buddy's place right afterwards and walked out of there with my first carbine, a Hi point 995TS 9mm carbine. I must say that I'm in love with this little rifle, I can't wait to shoot it. I love the tactical look so I already added a bi pod, flashlight, folding grip, and a scope. I have a few other toys for it coming in the mail. I am eager to learn as much as I can about this rifle, really looking forward to meeting some of you great people too!
