Post subject:  995TS - noob pics and initial review

I'm quite the noob to HP's, but do love my 995TS. I have added a few items to make it more to my liking. So far added a HP Forward Grip, HP dual magazine holder,HP side Weaver rails, Brass Stacker Compensator, UTG Bipod, PowerTec Cadet 300 Lumen Flashlight w/Strobe. I'm looking at some other ideas that I see online, but really haven't decided on exact items yet.
Didn't realize how many "supporting" items I needed to purchase (I.E. wanted :roflol: ) like a biometric safe, 10 gun cabinet, eye and ear protection, range bag, targets,etc. Plus, got a range membership at an indoor range that lets me shoot pistol caliber rifles. Funny how that worked out.... :laugh: Oh yea, and ammo, ammo, and more ammo.

I've only had it out to the range once, but hopefully going tomorrow or next Wednesday. Out of the box, it shoots pretty damn good.

Please check out some other pic's and my "noob" review at http://webpages.charter.net/jlevitan1/hipoint/hipoint.html

:shock: :groan:

There goes the groceries!

Didn't anyone tell you that firearms are addicting? You are officially now :owned: by THEM! :rules: There is no medicine to cure what ails you except spending money on more and more... and more... :hmmm: Just be aware, for a tactical type gun, when it reaches twenty pounds the 'tactical' has pretty much been run off...Just sayin... :lol:

Hi Randy. Yep, very addicting for sure. I do feel "owned", but in a good way! Maybe it is part of the logical side of my brain, that I went for the HP 995TS, but I figured I could get this weapon, brand new, and still have a few dollars left to customize it to my preferences.

Total agree about the weight. I weighed every additional item with the wifes super sensitive food scale (yea, she was pleased...NOT) and stopped with the items shown. The weapon as sitting is 9 lbs. Oh, please check out the small review on my website
http://webpages.charter.net/jlevitan1/hipoint/hipoint.html , especially the "Weight/Size/Comfort:" comments......

I checked out your *gushing* page. :whistle: It was really good. :thumb:

Are you a web developer? That is a very professional page. I've had a few classes for that on my way to a bachelors degree in information tech. Doing a really boring class on systems analysis now.

Hi Randy. Thanks for checking out the web page. I work in IT at liberal arts college (yep, a handful of conservative common sense thinking group within the very liberal academia world :groan: ), but I'm not a web developer. I just started that many years ago before the Facebook/Twitter/"input social media here" rage took over. You can see from my main http://webpages.charter.net/jlevitan1/ page, that I kinda use the same format for all my "hobbies" :) One of these days, I'll sit down and modernize / clean it up.......

Yep, system analysis requires a great deal of concentration, and even a greater amount of coffee.... but your degree will be worth it for the future...
