Once! No more LOL.
I bought a Mossberg 88 12 gauge last June and I got to shoot it a few days ago. I have a bad shoulder and the kick was too brutal and that's with birdshots. I thought I'd try skeet shooting but forget it, it ain't gonna be fun. The 12g was really for HD though and I think it's too much.
I called my range and told them I got a shotgun for sale so I sold to them. I thought about getting a 22 rifle and while looking around on the net I saw some pistol caliber carbines. That interested me so I checked 'em out and decided on the Hi-Point 4095TS carbine which is 40sw. I read the reviews and watched YouTube videos and it looks fun. Seemed reliable too and learned that HP stand behind their guns for life.
Ok, now to find one, easier said than done. They're all sold out and waiting on shipments. I joined the Hi-Point forum and browsed to their for sale threads and a member posted just a few days ago about a sale at a site. I went there and sure enough he's got one so I ordered it. Turned out I got the last one.
Can I say WHEW! LOL
Here's what it look like:
