I have this female coworker friend who probably isn't going to do the work to be competent with a pistol, and says she doesn't want a revolver (which I've been letting her borrow). Yet she wants to keep a gun at home. So I've been thinking of a carbine. I have several pistol caliber carbines but only one semi-auto, a Ruger PC4. I like it for her purposes, but they're not easy to find these days, nor are the others that come to mind, like a Camp Carbine. She's not at this point picky about what she buys, would take advice but more expensive is going to make her wait and probably not do it at all (so M1 carbine and HKs are probably out). So I was wondering what folks think about the (seems to be) only presently manufactured, inexpensive PCC on the market - the Hi-Point. I'm assuming we'll be able to find one in a local shop to try on for size, though I don't expect we'll be able to borrow or rent one to shoot. My Ruger should be close enough to tell if she's going to be able to handle it. Thoughts?
