Good day, Ladies and Gents. I started shooting, hunting, trapping as a kid growing up on the Illinois prairie. I'm a casual shooter who gets to the range when the opportunity arises. Been on this planet for over 5 decades and hope to stay a few more. I just purchased my first Hi-Point this past weekend, a 995TS. I will be shooting more often now with also a (new to me) Mosin Nagant that I acquired on a Black Friday sale. The research that I did on this site helped me make an easy decision for a tactical rifle with pistol caliber. There will probably be another Hi-Point pistol in my near future too. Thanks all!
