i like them, but in regards to hi points some say this and some say that.
i would see if you could find one to shoot. from what i read for the money their carbines are pretty good, but then again this is not from an hands on stand point but from reading and listening.
for the money $260.00 what could you lose, it seems cheaper than the lcp, and even then you took a gamble.
fyi, i wouldn't use it for a woods gun unless it was chambered in 10mm.
All things considered ,even then why carry a pistol caliber carbine regardless if it were 10mm or not when you could carry a 12 or 20 shot gun loaded with slugs in the same size and weight catagory.
oh, just buy it any!!!!!!!! if you don't like it sell it or give it to me for a birthday present. ;D
