I really love Hi Point's 995 carbine. I think it's one of the best buys on the market today. My son has recently began showing an interest in my hobby-passion...SHOOTING! He's started going to the range with me and is really getting into it. One of my guns he really enjoyed shooting was my 995 carbine, which he actually out shot me with! I said to him, you really like that gun don't you. He said, yeah that's a neat little rifle. So, I gave it to him and went out and bought me another one. It's his first gun and he's really proud of it.
