    Had one in 9mm and it was accurate and fun to shoot. But alas, I had to sell it so I could buy my M&P Sport 2 AR15. You should have much fun with yours.

    I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

    I have both but I had my Sport 2 AR15 before I got my Hi-Point. I find myself shooting the carbine more than the AR15 for some reason.

    I want to get a gunsmith here to take off the front sight and thread the barrel on my 380 & 9mm Hi-Points. That way I can put a can on them both.
    Cans make shooting so much fun.

    WOW,
    I just realized if I get a can for the 40/10mm I will also be able to use it for my 9mm & 380, because the bullets are all nearly the same diameter.

    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!

    That is true as I was reading on that. Glad they started putting the threaded barrel on the 10 mm.

    Hi Point! Great pistols! Great carbines! Never used one in 10mm, but the 9mm I used was a hum dinger! Just nothing but excellent function with any brand of ammo used. Doubtless you will find your 10mm to be the a hoot to shoot at the range. Out in the woods and fields it will be the bomb for small game ... even deer! After all, the 10mm in a handgun is a hot round. It'll be even better in a carbine! Sincerely. bruce.

    I pulled the iron sights off mine (I can't see them worth a darn). I did have some trouble at first, it does not like plated bullets. The plating would peel off when exiting the barrel resulting in a disturbing reduction in accuracy. Jacketed bullets work fine. I use the 180gr Hornady HAP over a dose of Longshot.

    Thanks for the heads up on the bullets as I am waiting for the dies to start reloading.

They'll easily shoot 2-3" groups at 100 yds with a decent scope.
    I really like my 9mm (I've had it since 2009), but the scope it came with (I got it used) sucked.

    I could not get it sighted in at 25 yards, as it constantly drifted (randomly, one time the hole trail wandered up & left, another time straight right, etc) no matter what I did with/to the scope.

    I finally removed the scope and re-installed the factory sights - it is now much more accurate!

    I have been kind of looking for a 40mm, to match my Baby Eagle.

    If it's not being too forward, may I ask what did you trade for the Hi Point?
