I was looking at possibly purchasing a C9 at my local Gun shop the other day. I just bought a 9mm carbine which I really enjoy. While examining the action I noticed that it appears that the extractor would bring back a round and when the slide is at it's rear most position the firing pin comes out and pushes against the primer to eject the round. Is this safe? I ask this question because, sometimes you need to extract a live round. Wouldn't the action of moving the slide back with enough force and the firing pin pushing against the primer cause a live round to go off while extracting? I haven't heard or read of this happening but the mechanics seem unsafe to me. Is this how all Hi Points work? I looked at my other semi auto's and all of the semi auto's at the local Gun shop and none of them seem to work this way. I'm not trying to put down Hi Point. I like everything about them (price, warranty, made in USA, etc.) I have not jumped on the anti Hi Point bandwagon and I don't plan to. I just wasn't comfortable with the mechanics of the extractor. I am new to this forum so this may have been discussed already. Thank you.
