For the money I would actually get a hi-point carbine in the caliber of your choice. I know they are not over $200 and you should have the same range/accuracy roughly.

What's the draw?

they're not bad carbines.

for the money they want however, I'd buy something in a real rifle caliber personally.

BUT...right now they're all fetching a premium if it has a pistol grip and take a magazine.

The stock Hi-points look like this.




But for little money can look like this.

Lol this obviously comes from someone with 1 of 2 mentalities. Someone that A. has never used or owned one. Or B. thinks that because they are cheap they must be junk.

Hi-points are very cheap guns for what they are. And the fact that they come with a lifetime warranty is icing on the cake so to speak. And for the most part they are very reliable guns. I have shot them and never had any issues with them. Of course you will not get outstanding accuracy from them for long ranges because they use pistol cartridges, which aren't meant to go long ranges accurately anyways. As for malfunctions. All guns will malfunction at one time or another. But I personally never had a problem with them and I know lots of others that also have had no problems.

And as for that guys retarded statement about "survivors sending in gun" I have never heard of a hi-point "blowing up" or anything like that. Especially if properly cared for.

I've heard mixed reviews on the Hi Points.

from actual owners.

with the ATI stock, they love them...BUT say overtime they start running into problems.

what's the main purpose you plan to use the gun for?


another issue would be to check into laws regarding them in your state/city as I'm pretty sure NY can get retarded with them.

Are you really saying you think the Hi Point is comparable to a Beretta in terms of accuracy? If so, wow, just wow.

You're comparing apples to oranges Jimmy. A pistol caliber carbine is easier to shoot with it's longer sight radius than a pistol. It also increases the power of the cartridge by virtue of it's longer barrel. The longer barrel increases velocity, thus greater power.

Also, you do not have the danger of over penetration as you would with an actual rifle. There is also the danger of killing someone in the next county inadvertently with a rifle due to it's much greater range.

This is just scratching the surface, but I'm going to bed.

I understand that with a pistol/carbine you'll get more power/accuracy for the cartridge, but what exactly would you be using it for? What situation is this going to be anything but a poor facsimile of the ideal.
Target practice with a rifle-type weapon? Use a 22.

Pistols were created because of the need for a lightweight compact weapon, and the rounds used in them were created because an "effective" cartridge was impractical. This seems like the worst of both worlds. Bulky and underpowered.

Ever hear of an MP5?

You can place all 30 rounds in a fist sized group in a target 10 - 15 yards away with a single pull of the trigger. There is virtually no recoil unlike rifles, 1/4th the noise, and the option of effective suppression. All bundled in a small, lightweight, and effective tactical solution.

it's all about application.

you don't go offroading with a LeCar

the enviroment said gun is gonna be deployed in also plays a factor.

rifles in dry wall don't mix very well...pistol calibers aren't much better...but it's better.

they were once popular with police departments as some of the rifles would accept the same mag the sidearm had too but since the North Hollywood shootout...more and more have issued .223 or bigger to be kept in the patrol car's trunk.

Yeah, but we aren't talking about an SMG. I understand the niche that SMGs fill.

some of it also falls on the Cowboy rifle concept.

carry a rifle in the same caliber as your pistol.

.45LC lever rifles are very popular....

Jumping in here a little late.

Don't scoff at Hipoints. The pistols are clunky, ugly, heavy, and RELIABLE just so long you don't limp-wrist them. They do NOT fall apart like Bryco/Jennings/Jimmienz/RG/etc. They are in a class by them selves. That class is a cheap working gun that doesn't break down.

The pistols are pretty accurate too due to the fact that they don't used the Browning style locked breech (which tilts the barrel affecting accuracy) but rather are straight blow back so the barrel is always immovable.

The carbines get almost always rave reviews. Very few have problems (some of the hipoint guys have had issues with the ATI stock but I have never had a problem).

I am looking forward to getting a 45 carbine if they are ever released.

As for pistol caliber carbines, I shoot at an indoor range. Indoor ranges quite often only allow pistol calibers so I can shoot my carbines there and have fun with rifles.

Plus pistol ammo is much cheaper than rifle ammo and reloading pistol ammo is quite a bit easier. I can churn out about 200-300 rounds of 45 an hour whereas it takes a lot longer to load up 308 or 223.
OMG EDITED FOR CONTENT.!!

Effin 'eh I love P90s. One of these days I will own one.

The Stargate props department did one thing I really love for slinging that weapon. They designed it on a chausser strap.



Given the nature of the P90's use, I like having it strapped on like that instead of having a 2 point sling. I've used 2 point slings on P90s, and without special adapters to go over the flash hider, it's next to impossible to get a 2 point sling to work with it.

I use to own a Hipoint. I never once had an issue with it, but I wouldn't buy another one simply because I can afford a Springfield/Colt/Sig...

They are big and ugly. I didn't personally care for the ergonomics of the gun, but it never failed to fire for me.

+1 P(S)90. I love mine and have it as my go to gun for home defense. I feel MUCH more comfortable with my shot placement/follow up shots from my PS90 over my XD40, or any of my other guns for that matter...

Combine with a red dot sight, factory laser, and a surefire, I would trust my life to my PS90 in any close quarters situation.
