I joined here a couple months ago. I used to have a 45 Hi-Point pistol and I loaned it to my brother for several years. He died of pancreatic cancer and his ***** wife wouldn't give me my gun back. Before he passed, he did give me these and she didn't know about it. An Army 44 and Navy 38 plus a knife he made out of a circular saw blade So when sportsmans guide sent me an email I immediately bought the 45JHP for $130.00 delivered. I loved it from the start. My buddies gave me grief and I also loved that. So I spent 21 dollars on boa grips, 100 on a laserlyte and 60 on extra mags. Then I bought the carbine for $301.00 delivered, tru glo red dot, flashlight, muzzle brake, tacstar foregrip that I immediately took off and ordered a hi-point grip. I had the carbine for almost a month before I shot it now I have shot it 3 days in a row and I love it more everytime. My point is I think I am gonna buy the pistol and the carbine in 9mm becasue 45 ammo is expensive to just go out and target shoot all day. Got an overseas vacation coming up and I am a commissioned salesman. My checks for the first 3 or 4 months of the year aren't that great until I hit my bogey but then they get bigger. Plus my wife is all over my ass for buying more guns. We have a walk in closet that is a , closet, tornado shelter, and gun safe. She has said that If anyone is here and a tornado comes, I will have to throw guns out. I told her her shoes and clothes would be first. So I guess I am now addicted to a brand that everyone loves to ridicule and for some reason, I really enjoy the grief. Plus if they give me too much grief I will pull out a kimber, les baer or Wilson combat and let them shoot it and I will outshoot them with the JHP.
