I ran across this link on another forum for the US Army Marksmanship Unit "Pistol Marksmanship Training Guide". This is a detailed 94-page booklet in pdf format that gets into some of the finer technical points of becoming a better shooter. I found it to be very interesting reading:

This is a zipped file that unzips to about 2.5 mb's.

I do like it...especially the price. I think I paid $149 with a 4X scope. It has a lifetime warranty.

It is about the ugliest thing I have seen, but it has never failed to fire and is very accurate at 50 yards...and pretty good at 100 yards. You can only get 10-round mags, but I hear that a hi-cap mag is coming soon. My only complaint is that it has a very heavy trigger pull, but I think that can be improved with a little work and some lithium grease.

I think if it wasn't made by Hi-Point, this carbine would be a lot more popular than it is.

I've never shot Wolf 9mm...just a bunch of their .45 with no problems. I usually shoot Wally World WWB or Rem UMC in it.

Thanks for the link on the mags. I'm curious what they will look like, as the mag slides up the grip handle. I guess a 15-rounder will stick out a bit.

FYI, here is a link to another thread where the 995 carbine is discussed at lenght:

yup

the 15 rd mags do stick out a bit...i have seen them, the pics i saw and now cannot find had the same Hi-point plastic type wrap around the lower portion that stick out....should blend in nicely....at least as nice as possible on such a un pretty weapon....but i guess that is in the eyes of the beholder.....still want one!

Shouldnt this post be in the "Tactics and Training" section? I saw it originally and wanted to come back and look at it again and had to search a bit for it.

Good point. I added it to the T&T forum attached to a previous post re training materials.

also note while a lot of the concepts transfer, this manual was written for competiion bullseye shooting.

still, trigger, breath, sight picture, are the same but don't try taking up that stance and grip in a defensive, or even competitive enviroment.

I read that online when I first decided to get a pistol, before my steyr ever left cdnn.
It is an excellent primer.
