Hey guys i bought a 9mm carbine recently mainly for plinking. I am curious, would this gun do the job on a coyote 100 yards or less? If so what type of bullet would you suggest? FMJ HP?

I know the gun is plenty accurate, I am just concerned that it may not have enough power to put a yote down quick out to 75-100 yards

PS The recoil is so minimal on this gun I am going to put my .22lr scope on it here pretty soon so Ill have it sighted probably for 75 yards or so.



Here is a link to a video of me shooting this gun. Its a Hi Point model 995TS ($250)

you can get them brand new for 200-250. I got mine at cabelas for 250$ brand new with the forward grip.

They have a GREAT review, and for the price, it can't get any better.

Glad you like it!

Im sure 9mm will kill a coyote. Ive taken my Glock several times in hopes of havin one close enough to try but so far Ive only got to finish one with it. 124gr HP done enough damage to demonstrate it would have worked fine as a primary weapon. I would definitly stick to +P hollow point,and stay away from FMJ. Question now is range. Ive never shot 9mm in a rifle but being in a long gun doesnt change the fact that its pistol ammo and will not perform as well as a rifle bullet so I guess it's time to break out the milk jugs full of water or maybe even watermelon's biggrin.gif . You need the hydraulics to check bullet performance and if you can hit these targets than your good to go. Extend the range till either marksmanship or bullet performance starts to deteriorate and you will have answered your own question. Good luck and let us know how it works. I read pictures best!
