    Hello from a new member with a 9mm carbine. I live in NE Ohio and picked up a new Hi Point from a dealer recently. I had been to the range with a friend's in the past and enjoyed shooting the gun. We can hit a six inch steel plate at 100 yards using the iron sites, what fun. (Not what it is made for but fun none the less). I will post a couple of pictures, if I can figure it out, of a couple of recent add on's. The first is a vertical foregrip with laser and 250 lumen light,$45 on ebay. Because of the foregrip batteries I needed a place to store my hi point tool including wrenches small enough to adjust the laser (left them at home on site-in day because my regular set of wrenches is not small enough to adjust the laser, I will never leave home without them again). The tool box is 2 cannibalized cheap'o flashlights and a section of bicycle inner tube. The last item is an old ultralux 4*20 scope. I received the scope years ago in a trade and never had a use for it until now, I think these scopes are popular with the AK crowd and fits the gun very well.

    Always thought of a 9 mm carbine as most useful at closer ranges. I think of my 22 wmr or my 223 as 100-200 plus yard guns. Was sort of an off the cuff comment and not a commentary on the hardware, I was just pleasantly surprised that we could consistently hit the target at that distance with a pistol round and iron sights.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Oh OK. Well we all have our opinions.

    But I meant what was the six inch steel plate made for?

    oops:)

    The plate was made to shoot, it is a piece of 1/2 thick scrap from the fabrication shop where my daughter's boyfriend works. We bent rebar into stands and hang the plate as reactive targets. I have a 6" and 8" that we set up at the range. Painted bright orange it is easily sighted and adds some variety to just shooting paper.

    Thanks Rich. I am visiting here from the amateur boat building forums, now there is an opinionated group.
    My summer time obsession is boatbuilding and sailing.

    I used to crew in races on a 24 foot San Juan on a lake in Oregon, actually got certified in Germany on the Laser class. I LOVE sailing....but haven't done it for many years.:(

    Building a boat? I might be able to do a submarine...if re-surfacing wasn't required.:cool:

    My guns seem to be made to convert my limited hobby budget into hot empty brass and otherwise worthless holes in stuff downrange. :p

    Peace favor your sword,
