Favorite Hi-Point: C9
Gender: Male
Location: Southern IL
Age: 50
New to Hi-Point Firearms. Picked up a new C9 yesterday. Did well as I got the pistol, holster, hard carry case, trigger lock, hearing protection, 150 rds ammo, cleaning kit, and targets for the OTD price of $292 at Gander Mountain.

First impression...heavy pistol overall, grips fit my hand well, safety is a bit tight to work, trigger pull feels smooth, hard to load all eight rounds in the magazine but the spring should hopefully loosen a bit, minor bits of plastic that need to be trimmed/sanded, slide action is smooth, slide grip serrations are deeper than what appeared in photos and are good.

I have two additional magazines and the dark wood grips on order from Hi-Point

Hopefully this week will get out to the range my son belongs to and run about a 100 rds through it.

As for who am I? Retired USAF medic (IDMT). Working in civilian healthcare now. Previous vol firefighter so you get my screen name.

Again, Welcome!!! Lot of good info here on what to do and what to not do if you don't need it, with new Hi Points.
And of course, we're always willing to chat about anything!

Congrats of the C9... have one myself, and they are great pistols!

The last time this fellow was here was Mar 31, 2016...

I'd give him a big warm welcome - but I'm guessing he won't see it... :whistle:
