So I decided to get my first handgun. I was considering one of the new S&W Sigma's that had the $50 rebate. While researching that gun on a forum I ran across a thread of people both praising and damning Hi-Point products. I was intrigued by the price and the warranty. I was lucky enough to find this forum and started lurking. I eventually decided to get one and found a dealer on the Gunbroker.com auction site that seemed to regularly have auctions for all the Hi-Point products. I won the bid for a C9 for $105 + 25 shipping. My local FFL charged $15 for the transfer. My total out the door was $145. I got to the range Tuesday morning for the first time and put 50 rnds through the C9. AMAZING GUN!!! A pleasure to hold. Easy to shoot. As accurate as can be. I had 1 FTF on the last round of a 8 shot magazine load. Could not be happier. I can't wait to get to the range again. BTW - I probably will not be posting a pic as it looks precisely like all the other C9's. Beauty in a simple and elegant design.
