I purchased my High Point 995TS last summer. $250 w/ grip. I promptly gave the grip away, took off the sights, added a scope and a bipod.
She's quite accurate up to 50 yards as expected for 9mm. Anything beyond and there is significant bullet drop. For close support and defense this carbine does the job. High Point also has a lifetime, transferable warranty.
The small capacity 10 round magazines are a deal breaker for some, but new OEM magazines are $15 w/ free shipping from HP direct. HP is also in the process of designing a 15 round magazine.
She's not the prettiest carbine on the street, but she goes bang every time. And that makes me happy.
Breakdown is a bit complicated the first time, but there are plenty of videos to guide you along. HP does not recommend cleaning or breakdown until 1000 rounds. I waited until the 2000 round mark. I detected nothing wrong internally, no shavings, breakdown, or loose parts.
9mm ammo is readily available should you to scavenge after the SHTF. I've put aluminum, brass, and steel cased ammo down range with no issues. HP gives the barrel a +P rating.
Thank to the OP for the posting, but I routinely see the 995TS at my local shops for $270. Yeah I know...no grip, no light, no laser. I'd rather accessorize for my situation, rather than what corporate America wants me to.

to the OP: Not a huge fan of the deal, but thanks for posting it.

Awsome gun. Got it at Cabella's for $225 a year ago.
High acuracy. Lifetime warranty. It is 9mm so don't expect rifle range.
Only drawback in my opinion: it only takes a 10 round clip. It is single stacked. There is an aftermarket 15 round clip, but I have heard issues with that. A gun like this should have a 30 round clip

My wife has this for gaining confidence and 58yds in shooting...Hi Point iis iffy...
SHop around for the discontinued
Rucer Police Carbine 9 (PC-9) or PC-4...Or A Marlin Camp 9....This is a POS compared to the PC-9 build wide,
Or a Beretta Storm Cx4
Not bad and sub 200...HORRIBLE at 389.
Yeah and 10 shot mags that are pricey......

Anyway, Hi-Point really needs to come up with a new system for the pistols. Punching out rolled pins and then re-using them over and over again just seems wrong. Supply me with a baggy of 20 replacement pins and I might not care as much. I have had a C9 since 1997 or so and have only taken the slide off for cleaning once. I'm waiting for some sort of failure before I do it again. I have no idea how many rounds have passed through it, but more than any of the other 20 pistols I own (Eh, maybe the Mosquito and M22 are close). The C9 gets all the nasty reloads that cause issues for my expensive guns since it just shoots everything I can feed it. I just clean the bore and the chamber as well as I can with the slide open. I shoot some Rem-Oil down the firing pin, and that's it. I have a spare if anything goes wrong with C9 #1

I have a 995 with an ATI stock that has well over 10,000 rounds through it. I've cleaned it exactly twice, once when it was brand new before I ever shot it, and the second time after a couple thousand rounds went through it. It still shoots every time I pull the trigger, never misfires, and is dead balls accurate.
The 995 is an incredible pain in the ass to break down to clean. I have found that the only cleaning this gun requires is running a bore snake through the barrel and keeping the feed ramp relatively smooth. I polished the feed ramp when it was brand new and now just keep it wiped off and oiled, but I do not bother to break my carbine down and try to clean it anymore. It just doesn't need it.

This gun is also FAR better looking than what it used to look like.
For the CA legal version, see Ruger PC-9, et al.
