MKS Supply, Inc., Dayton, OH, July, 2019 –
The G1 Yeet Cannon
Hi-Point’s recent Name The Nine contest for its new 9mm pistol coming out later this year exploded the internet; more than 313,000 votes were cast on the Hi-Point website and more than 450,000 comments were made on other sites. The verdict? Hi-Point’s new 9mm pistol will be called the YC9 and it will be released late in 2019. Talk about a huge social media coupe!
In the Burger King™ age, nobody wants to wait, so the clamor rose loudly to also yeet up the long established and popular Model C9. To comply with the demand, limited numbers of the current Model C9 will be made with YEET CANNON G1 laser engraved on the slide. The laser engraved letters are big and bold; this is no gun for the shy! This additional work will add approximately $20 to the price of this limited edition engraved Model C9, bringing the MSRP to $179.
Yeet definitions are all over the place but the definition chosen to represent the Hi-Point pistols is the primary Urban Dictionary definition: To discard an item at high velocity. In this case, the “item” being discarded at high velocity is a bullet. YEET CANNON is trademarked by Hi-Point Firearms.

Stop laughing already…
Here’s the thing, Hi-Point Firearms is unapologetic about offering some of the lowest priced American-made firearms on the market. But did you know they offer excellent customer service and stand behind the quality of the products they make? They Do.
Some other gun makers to take a lesson or two from Hi-Point about reliability. Over and over again I have read reports of reliability tests on these guns the just frustrate anyone who plans to hate them. They feed just about any ammo and just keep running. One of my buddies took all the reloads in .380 ACP that failed in his expensive big name guns and ran them through a Hi-Point without a single failure to feed or fire. That’s a pretty tall order for any gun.
Being probably the cheapest carbine in the market place and being known for reliability will get many shooters to ignore the fact that the guns are not going to win any beauty contests. Nobody is ever going to checker plastic stocks or engrave a Hi-Point. But if your looking for a rough and tumble truck gun… This is it.
In 2018, Hi-Point is adding power to its carbine line with a new 10 mm version that accepts a 10-round single-stack magazine and it’s +P rated. The rubber cheek rest, recoil absorbing stock and a trigger that is at least acceptable, will all contribute to more fun at the range. The 17.5″ barrel has a threaded muzzle with a sight rail for optics and a lower rail for accessories, dare I refer to them as Pic-rails. Until this 10mm came along I was not ready to own one, now I will have to add one to the collection.
