Default Hi-point dealers?

Hi-point only list 3-4 dealers in my area. But there are atleast twice that many I have found. And none with a c9, only .380's and .45's. Why doesnt hi-point list each and every dealer or FFl they sell to? I cant but think how many other "shops" I haven't visited. I wanted a c9 for the price of ammo, but might end up with a .45 for now. Just need a gun to stop the critters.

Are they all dealers?? OR do some just sell the HP firearm. Just because a store sells a certain brand, doesn't mean they are a dealer for that brand.

These places do sell hi-points. And have many instock. They also say they order directly from HP. So unless they order 10-20 guns as an individual FFL and then resale as NIB, I would guess they are dealers. They are gun stores as well as Pawn shops. HP does list some pawn shops as dealers. The search continues.

I dont have many places listed for me. The shop where I got my .45 from the owner said he was going to stop selling HP's. He is still listed on HP's site. I should call him.

there's not many listed here in KC either, but several other places sell them.....unfortunately no place I went had any C9's in stock, well unless you want to pay $250 for one. You can buy them off gunbroker for $139, I got one coming and they told me when I called to pay that I could buy three for that price with no extra shipping if I wanted, just didn't have the cash or i would have snapped them up.

I emailed Hi-point essentially that question. The reply was that they sell to a single distributor, and the distributor sells to the dealers. They don't interact with the dealers directly.

Somebody else can explain whether that is a good economic model, or whether there is a legal reason for doing it that way.

They sell to MKS supply and they distribute the firearms to the dealers... sorta its more of an agreement on a percentage than a sale.. but sale is easier to explain to the customer so there ya go.

I have had 2 different retailers trying to get me a C-9 since November. No luck, yet.
