I've decided I really want to get a C-9 Hi-Point. Thing is, I can't decide if I want to get the plain C-9 or the C-9 compensated. It's intended purpose in my menagerie will to be a partner to my 995 carbine (I have a full frame .45 Armsor 1911 and and a 20 inch barrel Charles Daly 12 ga. pump for those of you worrying about my personal safety). For those of you in the know, is there in appreciable difference in the range shooting performance between the C-9 and C-9 Comp? The compensator on my 995 does noticeably improve performance for me, but I have no experience with such on handguns. Also, is there a shortage of C9s? My local dealer is having a hard time getting restocked with C-9 because their wholesaler is out and on a waiting list. Is that just a western Kentucky thing or what?
