I love my Hi-Point Carbine

So I went to a gun show over the weekend and picked up a used 9mm Hi-Point carbine for the fun of it and under $250. I can say this is a great little gun to shoot. I am surprised how easy this gun is, and how flawless it behaved. I was hitting the targets with irons at 350 yards 100% of the time. No jams, double feeds, nothing. I am thinking about scoping it to see how far out I can get.

What a great buy, and way cheaper to shoot than a 5.56/.223 and none of the clean up required with my Mosin shooting that corrosive stuff.

Scoping a 9mm is somewhat pointless. How long did it take before you figured out your hold-over for elevation at 350?

350 yards with 9mm is impressive. I'm sure that was a noticeable pause between shot fired and shot hit. Shooting steel targets?

Assuming a conventional 115gr FMJ commercial load, it would take 1.11 seconds with a drop of 175.57" to hit 350yds, give or take a few increments for varying environmentals.
Impacting velocity of 760fps and 147ft-lbs of energy.

The important question, though, is how much stopping power does it have at that range

equivalent to a .32ACP. So, not much lethality potential.

Not too long, I just adjusted the rear sight until I hear the target thud

Well form the sound of the round hitting the target it would be enough to do some damage, however if I had to shoot at some on at that range I would use my mosin

Another poor choice in long range weaponry.

I was hitting the steel target at 500 yards with iron sights, tell me how that is a poor weapon
