    Canadian here. Purchased a 955TS few months ago. Have run thru close to 1K of ammo. Have been thoroughly impressed with the little carbine. So much so that 3 of my shooting buddies have bought their own.

    WELCOME!!!
    They are sweet shooters, but I have AR platform 9mm stuff now, should
    have kept the 995TS but I usually made money when I sold an HP so it
    really was hard to keep them around! :rotfl: Nice shooters, fun times...

    Welcome JHP owner from Floorid-............... uh nope. My Hi-Point journey started with the JHP. The 995TS's are the most fun of the line!

    I'm envious of you for 2 reasons, you have the 19" barrel. And able to blast 1000rds!!
    :lol::cheers:

    How does one get the long-barrel Canadian 995TS??
    Special order possibly?

    Thanks guys for the Welcome.
    Its just too bad we can't get the 45 with the 18.5" bbls. They'd make such a nice camp gun.

    17.5" in the USA.

    How's the ammo situation up there? Can you buy in bulk? Limits on how much you can own?

    Yes for the HP Carbine under 18.5" puts them into our restricted category. So follows the same rules and regs as handguns.
    We can buy bulk stock when available. Which is quite often. But with the HP carbines coming into the country over the last 8 months. The sales upon 9mm in bulk arent as often as they used to be.
    As for ownership we are limited to 500 pounds per person/ individual of ammunition including powder, primers and projectiles.
    So its half a ton between the Wife and I.

    Welcome to the tribe! I too have noticed that my shooting buddies start purchasing carbines after shooting mine.
