    Question Is a High point 9mm carbine with case a good deal for 200$..

    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    Not too bad a deal, I have had a Hi-Point carbine for many years allways 100% for me, lots of fun to shoot. Non of the high cap mags are reliable.

    If you do a search here you will find many posts on the Hi point 995 carbine. $200 for the new TS model (Tactical Stock) HP995 is OK if that includes tax OTD. You can also check on Gunbroker and see what they are selling for. The HP handguns are cheap, ungainly, clumsys, ugly and really rough, but the carbine is a fun little unit and mine had run really well for me over the years.
    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    If the gun you're looking to buy is an old model (not the TS) then it's a so/so deal IMO. They can still be found used for 150 or so.

    Great little carbine IMO and by most people's opinion who own them. The only Hi Cap mag's out there are Pro Mag's which are a hit or miss on reliability. I personally have 4 that work just fine for me.

    I took a defensive long gun class and the guy next to me on the firing line had one. Seemed to run reliably but couldn't get the POA/POI to be within 6 inches of each other at close range. Towards the end of the day his front sight fell off.

    As others have said...ok price if new in box and new style. Bad price if it's the older version.

    And I have never heard about ANY non-OEM magazine being reliable.

    There are some folks here who put ATI stocks, muzzle breaks and optics on theirs and they look SWEET!

    Recently in my LGS, there was one exactly as shown for $259 brand new. They have one now with a cheap scope mounted for $289 and a 40 cal for $269.
