Got new HP JHP. Have three questions?

    I brought home my new Hi Point JHP last night.
    Love it!!! I owned one back in the days, but that was 2007, so I’m a little rusty.
    I have three questions…
    1: When I rack the slide, it doesn’t go back, unless I remove the magazine. Why?
    If my magazine was loaded, would it then go back?
    2: Idiot salesman at Gander told me that I need to toss my magazine. He said order a new one. He said they ship with a garbage magazine, but when you order a replacement, it will be of better quality.
    I don’t remember this from 2007. I think it’s BS. Am I correct?
    3: Adding a laser? Yes or no, and why? I have a Ruger LCP with a custom CT laser. Love it. But, it’s my daily carry. My Hi Point will stay at home for the most part. My shotgun is my primary for Home Defense, and it has a light. So, if I toss a laser on my Hi Point, am I just getting into “GAS” gear accusation syndrome? I don’t need/want an expensive unit for I already put enough money in my Ruger.
    Any of the $20.00 lasers worth a darn?

    1. Last round hold open feature, that's how it works
    2. Doubt that HP has two mag bins, the ones to give away and the ones they sell.
    But buy a couple of spare mags anyway. There's a guy on EBay who sells flush mags for the JHP.
    3. I'm not a "add a laser to everything including the kitchen sink" kinda guy.

    Besides the 'rail' is proprietary and neither weaver not piccatinny so nothing fits out of the box as far as I know.

    Thanks for taking the time. Good to know about the rail/mount.
    I'm leaning with not getting one for the Hi Point.
    That would open up cheaper "holster" options for me, I would think.

    Hey, I anyone have a OD Green Hogue Handall on the Hi Point?
    I got the black one. Love it. But I wonder if the OD Green would look sharp?

    Yep, the green would look good.

    You might be able to get Mom to send you the green camo scales for free...I TRIED to buy some, but they wouldn't take my money, just my address.

    Alternatively, order the scales from http://www.iberiaxtras.com/hydro-dipped-grips and strap them on.:p

    I like your green grips. I don't see them at iberiaxtras or hipoint?

    Just so everyone knows, I actually called Iberia when the green guns first came out, explained I had a used black gun, and I wanted to buy a set of the new green camo scales.

    They refused to take my money, took my address, and sent me a pair.:eek:

    And THAT is one of the many reasons why HP rocks!:)

    I believe they are actually making us...gasp...PAY for them now!:eek:

    But that's absolutely OK by me, I thought they should have asked for money back then. I am glad they are getting some revenue out of the accessories.

    Now, if they were broken...I'd want a free set.;)
