Hey all :)

I'm Wayne, moved to Dayton OH 3 years ago, and having moved from Australia with it's somewhat draconian gun laws, I'm very new to the world of hand guns and anything semi-auto for that matter. Just bought a Hi-Point C9, am letting the magazine sit for a few days to stretch the spring as I was suggested to do, then it will be off to the range to see what this new toy of mine can do :) :minigun:

Given the political climate there that was certainly not a mistake.

Somewhat? Wait until you become accustomed to the law we complain about. And we are Right to complain!

We do semi-auto too. Some of us have been known to do full-auto too. We like to BS about those as well.

Good choice. They work and don't cost much.

Another way to get off to a good start.

Can't get to the range too much. Let us know you impressions after you get a chance to shoot it.

Lots of places rent full auto -- it isn't cheap but it's cheaper than owning one. A quick web search turned up these guys who say they have machine gun shoots from time to time; that's a great place to get to shoot a few -- bring cash!
