    I'm the newest member, the random guy that's usually everyone's friend.

    I just bought a JCP .40 and I'm in love. Being from the low income side of the burbs, I'm quite familiar with firearms, cheap ones to be exact. I plan on buying a .380 or C9 for my better half, and maybe a 4095TS. I'm honestly struggling between that and a GSG5 for my "Sportier" rifle.

    I say new in school because I'm a infant in the "true" gun world. I plan on learning a lot from you upper class man and honing my taste (and thirst) for firearms.

    I literally want to accrue tons of money in my profession and take my family off the grid, so defensive devices are a must in preparations.

    Without this sounding like a internet dating ad, I just wanted to debrief my fellow Americans on who was newly lurking around these forum hallways.

    Happy shooting...

    If I were to have ONE and only one Hi Point caliber, it would be the 40!

    JCP and a 4095. (Which I do have) Mag Sharing is a GO, (not so in a 995/C9) and higher capacity than the JHP/4595 combo. Cheaper ammo than the 45s and nearly as cheap as the 9mm. I saw PILES and PILES of 40 S&W for sale during the darkest days of the ammo scare, while 9mm and 45 ACP was non-existent. The GSG is a 22lr platform, right? If you don't already have a LOT of 22lr, maybe the 4095 makes more sense?

    Good to have you here, I believe the HP carbines are a great value and almost as customizable as an AR. ery easy to disassemble, and a breeze to put back together! I watched a youtube video ONCE and did it. More for the disassembly :D

    ALL Hi Points are +P rated, so there is plenty of room for hunting and SD use. Plus, the best warranty in the business. But I have not needed that at all, yet. Make yourself at home!

    WELCOME from the home state of Hi Point!

    HP 40's are good!
    I would pick the C9 over the CF-380 for your 2nd HP, simply for the cost of ammo factor.
    GSG is a FINE 22 caliber gun. I have the StG-44 & 1911. The MP-40 is on my short list?
    But you would need to base your HP 4095TS vs GSG5 decision on your expected use, home defense or squirrel hunting? Here are a few of my 40's.

    Welcome rbg, from the great southwest. I have been thinking about getting a 4095ts or a jcp. I shot a .40 cal pistol at the range the other day, and I really like the round. It packs a bigger punch than the 9mm and its cheaper than .45.

    Welcome from Texas. As you can already surmise there is plenty of information here all you need to do is ask. +1 on the C9 over the 380 as with the weight of the pistol recoil will be negligible and 9 mm is a lot cheaper than 380. Well welcome to the crazy train.
