Hello, I recently bought my first Hi-Point, a 995TS. I didn’t know about this forum before the purchase. I’m retired with 40 years in logistics and live in central Indiana.
Thanks for letting me join.

Welcome to the group! Do you have any other firearm experience?

A few points. Don’t hand cycle ammo. Just load the mags, take it to the range, and shoot it. Don’t follow any YouTube advice involving Dremels.
If you need any help or advice, ask here first.👍

ajole Thank you. I’ve been in a love affair with firearms for the past 60 years but this is my first Hi Point and I’m looking forward to shooting it and learning more about it. When I have a question, I will direct it to you. Thank you again, Phill

I have an older 995 in "original configuration". Love it. Accurate and fun to shoot. Digests everything I put in it's magazine. Only issue I have is it is a pain in the backside to clean.

With a handle like PPG I thought you would have been from the Steel City and work(ed) for Pittsburgh Paints...

Both still PPG Industries...😆

I remember riding around as a kid and seeing their sample stations out and about getting abused by the weather.

I get that more often than one would think. PPG was a mocking remark aimed at me by my wife in front of her family “hi I’m Phillip, Phillip Gump”. It backfired on her on, as most of her family still call me Gump. Some of her family’s friends actually thought my name was Gump, lol.

The best nicknames happen when they happen. Welcome to the forum. I did grow up in Pittsburgh though. 😆

Your right about nicknames happening by coincidence. I’m on a muzzleloading forum with the same screen name. The people there thought it stood for Pittsburg Plate Glass. As a boy in the ‘50’s I remember their commercials on early tv.
Thanks again, Phill
