    Hello all,

    I have been a gun enthusiast since I was a little one. I just purchased my first Hi-Point C9 three days ago. I had been shopping around for a weapon for my house and at the local range you can shoot just about anything. During my search I shot H&K 9mm, Glock, Kimber, S&W, and Springfield (which was the only one that had a jam in less than 25 rds :shock: ). Anyway I started researching Hi-Point and found some pretty good info online, and I figured the people who hate them are really just Gun Snobs. So I said WTF and went a spent $159 on a C9. In the last two days I have put 350 rds of CCI Blazer 115gr through it with NO PROBLEM AT ALL. Time after time, mag after mag as fast as I can pull the trigger is as fast as its gonna shoot. Accurate as sh!t too, my best so far is 2" grouping from 18 ft @ 10 rds. I am very pleased with my purchase now I want to go and pick up the 380, 40, and 45. They may not be the pretiest guns :roll: but I don't care, as long as it works. Anyway I just wanted to intro myself and say hey to everyone!! :D

  7. Welcome to the family!

    I think they look just fine. They don't look like they are for a girly-man nor do they look like an engineer's nightmare. They look like a well-built, American made weapon! Dangerous but easy to use.

    Oh, and we need pictures!
  8. welcome to the forum, I got my first one 2 years ago, and now have 5 of them. I got the 40 first then had to have the others. still need a 4095 and a compensated 9 but dont worry I am working on that. and if and when the 4595 comes out I got to have one of them too :lol:
