Well, I wanted a 995 in the worst way, and I kept getting outbid on GunBroker, or the deal fell through here at HPFF. Couldn't get one locally for a decent price, and all the gun shows were wastelands. Then a few weeks ago I bid on a couple different auctions. I won one (should have it in my hands this Friday). Yay!! Finally.

Then I won another... Whoops! Really, it was a 4 week auction and I never upped my bid. I just let it go and hoped that someone would outbid me like they had for months before. But no, I won it. Good price, sure, but now I've got 2 995's. And I'm stretching the budget to get them.

What the heck do I do with them? I've been kicking around plans for a wood stock and forend... Maybe make one tacticool... Have one set up for scope/reddot and the other strictly open sights? Sell one?

I dunno. Fine little pickle I put myself in.

I think you should donate one to the "Broomhead Needs A 995" charity.
:whistle: I kid.

Seriously though, if you were to sell one, what price would you put on it?
Free? Free is ALWAYS a good price. I kid you again. :whistle:

Well, the second one is missing a few of the parts - front and rear sights, barrel shroud, magazine, lock, and sling, so I was thinking I'd just turn right around and send it home to get it worked over. Once I got it back and function tested it, I'd probably sell it for $150 - $175 or so. That would include 2 mags and whatever I get back from Hi Point.

We'll see how that all works out. Maybe I'll want to get rid of it, maybe I'll keep it... Really want a Kel Tec P32, so maybe this will go to the 'Buy a P32' fund.

I'd have to say, "Congratulations, their twins!!!!"

Seriously, I've got two 995's and a 4095. One 995 resides with my brother in Texas. The other two carbines are here with me in Montana. Keep one 995 in the house for HD/SD. Keep the other in your vehicle as a truck/trunk gun in case you need to bug out from work to your house in a SHTF situation. Also, it makes a great spur of the moment, head for the hills, relieve some steam plinker.

Dunham's had them for $154 brand new on Sunday & Monday. Since I bought mine on Wednesday, I had to pay $164 for a brand new 995. It seems like the prices have really hot up. The normal price at Dunham's is $219 for the 995 and $300 for the 4095!!!!!!!

Well, that's great if a Dunhams is nearby, but here in Raleigh, you can't find them for under about $220. Most places just want to lecture you about crappy guns and try to sell you a beretta.

After shipping and transfer, I'll be in at exactly $151. Good deal considering my locale.

Yeah, Dunham's normally try to get $220 for theirs too. Every couple of weeks or so they run a special, or at least around here on them. Fortunately I didn't have to put up with any pushy up-selling salesman, the salesman didn't know much about them other than they sell a lot of them!!! You got pretty decent deals on both of them considering many gun dealers are realizing people want these Hi-Point regardless of what line of crap they try to spoon feed them, so they are jacking their prices up on them.
