Just purchased my first Hi-Point C9 at the South Bend gun show this past weekend. This is to be a fun gun/plinking gun at the range. I've got a 100 rounds thru it so far, am looking for the perfect cast bullet load, not quite there yet but am getting close. So far I like the pistol, not a Bulls Eye Match pistol by any means but neither am I any more. I'm 70 plus and long since retired and enjoying life to the fullest. I am blessed with good eyesight even at my advanced age, now if all the other parts worked as well. LOL I am not a basher of any maker, if the product works as intended there is little more to ask of the product.
