    I saw some hi point pistols several years ago at a gun show and said what a cheap piece of *&$%. Well been looking for a .40 cal carbine, 1st choice was the Kel-Tec, but I'll be in a diaper and wheelchair before they get enough of these puppies made. I bought a Hi Point 4095 carbine, put cross bolt handle and sling on it and next day took to range at lunch. I fired 30 rounds of my reloads that had 3 different primers, no hiccups 50 yds. good hit. Today took it out after work put up a IPSC cardboard target at 100 yds. I aimed for the head as I figured it would drop hit 4 out of 10 in the head, misses went high or left-right. I then aimed center mass and was amazed at the hits with the factory sights and my 59 year old eyes. I have shot it 89 times with no failure to feed, extract, fire or any hiccup. I will put 500 rounds thru it before I clean it just to see how it does. I am a satisfied customer. The only thing Kel-Tec has that is better is the hi-cap mags, but to be honest as accurate as this baby is, I wouldn't feel under gunned. All the ammo shot was cast lead bullets that I reloaded. I know they don't recommend it, but that was main reason I wanted a .40 cal carbine. Sorry for long post. Mac

    I have one, accurate and fun but i would suggest that it will last longer if you clean after 100 rounds and run it wet.

    I have the 9mm and love it. It is too expensive for me to shoot as much as I want so I can imagine what the 45 costs to shoot.

    My wife and I each have a .40 Can't beat it for cheap, fun and accurate (given the type of gun it is). Oh, and if you love ugly, it's got all that you'll ever want. And built right here in Ohio. That's my favorite part. Have to admit, I've got a .40 pistol too, and it's just too damn ugly to let anybody see that I own it. Never been fired. But waiting in the back of the safe for some day when times are tough, and it starts to look better.
