I liked the 9mm so much that I knew I would be getting another High Point hand gun, but I have always liked .45's so that's what I bought.

The gun shop/pawn shop/junk store/fence had a nice selection of High Point hand guns in the display. New and used, black and green. Even, I think, a C9 comp.

They were out of mags, but they do stock them. I will post my impressions after I put some rounds through it. It fits my hand much better than the 9mm, and I was pleased with how it shot, so I have high hopes for the .45acp to be as good.

Thanks,
-Spiker

Heh, Thanks for the replies. I don't really have a "range". We just go out to my buds mother's farm and set up targets and shoot.

I didn't buy enough ammo to put hundreds of rounds through it yet, but soon I'll have a few hundred to play with.

I live in east central Ohio, land of hills and staggering unemployment. :D

Spiker, just curious how you like your 45 over your C9. Just got the 9 a few weeks ago and a 40 or 45 will be my next purchase.

Also, backyard ranges are great (aka FREE!!) but if you are interested in an indoor for the more fridgid months Ohio Valley Outdoors in Lancaster is great.

Also, since you are in central OH too, where did you buy your 45? I got my C9 at vance's on Cleveland ave. and they had a ton but I didn't ask about the higher calibers. You never know these days who has ANYTHING in stock...

I'm in EAST central Ohio. Fifty miles from Wheeling WV.

The place I bought the .45 is called "County Coins" in Cambridge, Ohio.

I will report back once I have put some rounds through it. It may take a couple weeks though as the ammo is a bit hard to locate lately, and I am now broke.

Vance's has the .45 and the .40 for $179 and they do have them in stock. They still have the 995's as well.

You know come to think of it, I haven't taken my .40 and .45 out for a walk in awhile......

Remember those couple of rounds might be a big EPA concern, you better not shoot them out doors a judge might put an injunction on you.

First the national parks, next your range......

Just wanted to add a quict photo of my new JHP 45G (before I put the slip on OD Green grip on).
This is a sweet shooter too, I put 150 rounds through and not a single hicup!

I don't think the paint will stay on though since I already see a little coming off at the ejection port, no matter! I didn't buy it to set it on a shel and gaulk over it......

Are these Hi-Points turning green from envy? Could it be motion sickness from the recoil? Are or they just transforming into something bad assed like the Hulk? Remember the line just before he changed?....... Don't make me angry, you wouldn't me when I'm angry.
