    Hello all. I am new here from NW Florida panhandle. Also a new Hi-Point owner. I have a .45 pistol and carbine just purchased this year. Love them both already. Some minor problems with steel cased ammo, but I am pretty sure it is because they are both so new. I am an old shooter and have done handloading, bullet casting, some minor gunsmithing and wood gun grip making. If it goes "BANG" I like it!

    Welcome to the asylum. I spent some time out on the panhandle myself. I was stationed on NAS Pensacola for a while.

    Welcome to the forum neighbor I'm in Midway myself.
    Have you done any tweaks to your HP's, they can solve a few feeding issues right away.

    I figured I would get some more rounds down the barrel before I worried too much. They both do good with brass. The coating on the steel must be just a bit sticky.

    I was stationed in the 33rd TFW at Eglin while in the USAF. Got out and worked for the City of Valparaiso, just outside the Eglin gate for 30 years. Live in a spot in the road called Mossy Head now, out in the woods.

    Those gunships are pretty impressive. I got to watch a night demonstration one time. Just some massive firepower!! I was a weapons puke on F-15's in the early 80's. Came down here from middle Tennessee and just stayed.

    I went to Fairhope once several years ago on a motorcycle ride. Went to a place to eat where they throw the bisquits at you. Don't remember the name of the place, but if you leave there hungury, it is your own fault!

    Welcome hd, from the great southwest!

    Gotta love the carbines!! Fun fun fun!
     
  13. That's actually in Foley, AL and called Lamberts. Ate there once and got sick - never went back. :(
    However, a lot of people like it, including friends and some in my family.

    That's right, Foley. I am suffering from "oldtimers" disease and CRS.
