I know that these threads have been posted everywhere...but I'm still going to post mine. :D

I got my C9 just after Thanksgiving as an early Christmas gift (it was on sale) and I love it. I just went out today with my son and we ran 100 rounds through it and it performed flawlessly. I took the time to adjust the sighs so it was accurate. I was able to shot 4" groups and I've not had much practice with a handgun. My son just had a blast and he was able to shoot 3" groups and he's more inexperienced than I am. :)

For all those that say these guns are junk...I'd like to see them prove it with mine. So far it has shot everything I put through it and the only issue I had with it was the mag spring being stiff. After the 150 rounds I've put through it so far that problem has fixed itself. Now I'm looking forward to getting my MO CCW so I can carry this. Though it's heavy it won't be an issue for me since I'm a bigger guy (6'2" 236 lbs).

Hi Point sure has another loyal customer in me!!!

congrats! i carried a C-9 CCW for about 2 years, and i did not find it heavy at all, i also carried a Taurus Judge Tracker with 3" cylinder, and that weighs 38.6 ounces unloaded and did not have trouble, as long as you find a holster that works well and dress around your pistol it is all good!

Actually I found a holster too. While we were getting the rounds to shoot today I was looking at the Blackhawk holsters. My son saw me looking at them and grabbed one off the shelf and bought it. he handed it to me and said, "Merry Christmas!" and grinned. BTW...A size 5 works great for anyone wondering. It's an ambidextrous holster too, so it's great for lefties as well. It fits great and I can carry under a t shirt (already tested it).

BlackHawk makes some excellent holsters, they also make bi pods, as good as Harris yet cheaper. i have had a few of their holsters. i would love to have the stuff to make kydex holsters

Welcome! I love my C9 - I purchased mine in November 2012, and it was one of only a few NEW handguns, I could afford.It came down to that or a Cobra FS380, or paying another $100+ dollars for a Armscor revolver, SCCY, Kel-Tec or Zastava. I was sold on the warranty, price & positive customer reviews. My C9 now has 584 rounds of fmj and jhp fired, ( four different brands, both brass and steel cased.), for 12 minor stoppages. It's reliable enough for me. I just spray clean it with Rem-Oil after shooting. I keep it bedside for home defense. My eldest son has the JCP40 and likes it a lot. He just bought a Taurus TCP .380 for concealed carry. Happy shooting!

Third post here for me. I like what I am reading.
I picked up a 380 & 9 within two days of each other. Gave the 380 to my wife and the 9 to myself. I really like both of them. Unbiased reviews put them as good guns even though some did not want to admit it. The controversy they generate is crazy. Most of it funny but man!! No gun is perfect. Not a $200.00 gun or a $2000 gun but I am sold on these. I could afford a more expensive but why?? My and my wifes experience so far has been great.

You will find a lot of gun snobs that will down Hi Points no matter the circumstances. We are not Hi Point fanboys, but we do recognize that they are a good buy for the money, are capable of good performance and that the company takes good care of its customers.

you really cant ask for more than that out of a sub 200 dollar gun :)

Both the 380 & 9 are running great with no mods.
Slight adj. to the sights on the 9 with a minor adjustment to how I hold it and the bullets place well. Also added some stick on rubber textured grips that add to stability, comfort and looks.
I really like these and planning adding the 45 soon.
