HiPoint Carbine Accuracy Issues??????

HiPoint carbines are inexpensive little carbines that feel cheap, but in my experience, seem to shoot very well despite their reputation.

This guy contacted HiPoint and said he was experiencing accuracy issues with his 995TS 9mm carbine. Apparently, he wasn't even on paper anymore. So he sent in the carbine to HiPoint for assessment/repair... with 35 stuck bullets in the barrel.

And I thought my customer was hard to beat with 17 bullets stuck in a Ruger 44 Carbine!

2 things . . .

- Hi Points don't "just" blow up
- 9x19mm is a fairly weak cartridge

I'm proud to own several Hi Points.

Kinda explains why he couldn't hit the target.

Some people shouldn't own guns.
