Yup, that's right, I took home the ugly girl at the bar

Went looking for a good deal on a used Glock (those don't exist anymore) so I could use it with an aftermarket carbine upper. Instead, found a NIB Hi-Point 45 ACP carbine for almost 100$ under retail.

I'll get pics up tomorrow, I can't find my USB cable. Should be a fun plinker, everything I have ever read says it'll go BANG every time. Ugly, yes. Functional, yes. Expensive? Heck no!

Now I just have to bend over and visit the LGS for .45 ammo. Not looking forward to that part...I miss the good old days of 10$ a box practice ammo

    Walmart is your friend for inexpensive 45 ammo.
    Enjoy your new acquisition.

    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    They have been threatening to make one in .45 for a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.
    So, did they do it RIGHT and use a 1911 mag, or did they use one there own?

    Half and half. It is identical to a 1911 except for one tiny little bend on the mag catch. However, with a few very simple tools and a few minutes of youtube, you can make any 1911 mag work. So next gun show I'll be looking for some 15rd magazines, because 9rd just isn't going to cut it and that is all they offer from the factory

    Other than cultural disagreements and a dislike for the genetics, I've never heard a bad thing about Hi-Point firearms--especially the carbines. I shot the ehll out of a 9mm Hi-Point carbine a while back. It worked beautifully--even if the looks didn't get the same accolades...

    As the members at the SE shoot will attest and CPJ will gladly tell you (ha,) my wife has a hi-point 9mm pistol. Ugly it is and as comfortable as holding a brick in your hand, but it has gone "bang" everytime. Never a single hiccup. I heard the carbines were a hoot to shoot btw.
