Just Completed My Carbine/Pistol Combo

Discussion in 'Vintage Topic Archive (Oct - 2009)' started by wizard93, Mar 5, 2008.

  1. I was off today and decided to call around the "local" gun shops to see if anyone had any C9 or C9 Comp pistols in stock. I finally found a place in the next county who had some C9 pistols on hand. It was $149 plus tax, so I bought it. Now it's official. I'm a Hi-Point man. ;) Of course, a range report is in order in the near future. I'm hoping to find a load that both of these guns will like so I will only have to load one kind of ammo for both. Oh, yeah, here's the gun porn. ;)

  2. I need a C9 to complete my combo.... Nice.
     
  3. Beautiful, indeed! I did the reverse: C9 first, and then had to have a 995. They are an extraordinarily fun pair!
     
  4. Very nice! My only HP is the 995.

    they should sell the C9 and 995 with like 2 extra mags as a special package kit as well as separetly.

    called it the "9mm shooters bundle" or something.

    Cool beans man, nice combo. Congrats dude.
     
  7. Maybe in the next year or so, if the wife will allow, I'll also check into getting a matching pair in the 40 S&W. I think in a way that the 40 combo would be better, but considering the thousands of 9mm cases I have, and only a few hundred 40 cases, I figured the 9mm combo would be a more sensible choice as far as reloading was concerned. Then, if they ever decide to make the 4595 carbine, then I'll think about that combo too. ;)

  8. I finally got to take the C9 along with the 995 to the range Monday. I tried eight different loads using the 125 grain LRN bullets and 4-5 different powders. It turned out that the 995 liked the Win 540 powder the best and the C9 liked the HP-38 powder the best. Oh, well, so much for finding a load that both guns liked.

    ...pics, anyone?

    At the range where I go to, we have a 200 yard rifle range, a 25 yard pistol range, and a sporting clays course. It's not the biggest range, but it sure is nice. A lot of times if I'm off during the week, I can go out there and can end up being the only one there all day. Kinda like having my own range. ;)

    The two above pics are looking over the rifle range from the pistol range. Pistols can also be shot at the first 3 or 4 stations on the rifle range. I shot the targets on the lower range, then moved up to the pistol range to shoot the steel targets which were a blast. I went through over 300 rounds of ammo that day. I shot about 100 rounds through the C9 and around 200 rounds through the 995. The 995 has a round count of about 350 rounds now. Neither gun had any malfunctions of any kind.

    this is kinda a novice question i have always wondered what those small yellow pieces in the chamber are and what purpose they serve.
     
  11. That's a chamber flag. What that does is slide into the chamber with the "flag" sticking out of the ejection port letting you know that the chamber is free of live ammo.
