A quiet day, so off to the local Cabela's to get a C9. Yes, I am a sick man. Guy whips one out of the case, and I am holding a HiPoint pistol for the first time. Wow, lots of material in there. However, it seemed fine, so I said I would take it. He arrives back, and tells me the holster comes with it....200 bucks is the deal. He won't sell, unless it is the package deal. See you later, says I, and I came home. At least I got to handle one. The impression is that the gun is stoutly built. I liked it. I just want something to take in my vehicle instead of an expensive gun.....in case of theft. But I did like the way it felt. Handled a .40, man, that is a handful of gun.
