    It seems having a flag motif is popular. My son just bought a Howa with a flag design. It's chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor so it's expensive to shoot but it will reach out and touch things. Banging a gong at 400 yards wasn't any trouble.
    I would look at that Ruger but it is now classified as an assault weapon in Washington state and you have to jump through a bunch of hoops to buy it.

    If my flag really, really annoys that jackass over there, and he attacks me . . . well, I'm going to blame the jackass, not the flag.

    A 9mm carbine doesn't interest me at all, but...it's good to have choices! ;)

    The 40S&W doesn't ring my chimes either, but if Ruger ever gets to a 45 auto version, and I am still mobile, I might hear bells. The cartridge is easy to reload, the brass is good for a lot of them, and my Hi-Point carbine tells me that it is SHTF-zombie effective from the muzzle to at least 100 yards.

    It will make a great behind the truck seat BoB rifle, one to extend the effective range of your carry pistols ammo and you have to only carry one caliber to get home, kinda like the cowboys did with the 45 lc and 44-4o....Just needs a cammo flag motif.

    There may be a lot of Hi-Point carbines riding behind truck seats now; there is even a camo version. The Ruger is considerably more expensive, and of solider construction, and more attractive - but probably not much improvement in reliability. The Hi-Point is way more reliable than it looks.

    Three things that would make that pC better and sexier is to offer it in
    1- 45 acp
    2- 38/357
    3- 300 blackout

    Just my 3 cents. Damn it’s still sexy even as a 9mm

    Agree on the .45 Auto caliber option. Had a Hi-Point Carbine in .45 Auto and only sold it because I'm consolidating calibers and mag usage.

    38/357 would be a difficult proposition for a box magazine fed rifle, due to the rimmed case. Doable, but difficult. Could maybe use Desert Eagle mags....

    300 Blackout is technically a rifle caliber, not a pistol caliber.

    I agree re the 45 auto.
    Ditto re 38/357. Coogan mags too, maybe. The Ruger being a semiauto, the 38 Special round maybe a cycle problem.

    I like the 9MM. The one change I would make is to have multiple magazine configurations so as to use different pistols to match it with. Having the same ammo in get home guns is great but the same magazines is way better.

    They offer this in the .40 and 9mm out of those two the 9 would be easier to get ammunition for and cheaper. I like the .40 cal and have several handguns in that caliber but I would love to see this offered in the .45 also. I think I may start a PC fund and start putting a $$$ aside for one of these to find a new home with me this fall and maybe just maybe by the time I’m ready to pull the trigger they will be offering it in a .45
