    The Hi-Point YEET CANNON Has Finally Arrived

    BY JEREMY S. |
    JUL 17, 2019 |


    In response to popular demand and internet outrage over a naming contest gone sideways (again), Hi-Point has acquiesced and is now shipping the amazing YEET CANNON G1! Or is it G1 YEET CANNON? Whichever it is, it’s a temporary and limited solution until the brand officially adopts YC9 (Yeet Cannon 9mm) as the name of its upcoming gat. MKS Supply’s press release follows:
    The G1 YEET CANNON™ Has Arrived
    ADVERTISEMENT
    CONTINUE SCROLLING FOR CONTENT




    MKS Supply, Inc., Dayton, OH, July, 2019 – You almost cannot make this stuff up – but they did!

    It appears that a Hi-Point is the only firearm the social media folks like to burn, blow up, drive over, bend, throw, submerge, drop from great heights, and even shoot with other guns to see if it will keep running.

    That’s because Hi-Point firearms are tough, reliable, accurate and affordable – and that is why you will not see big bucks factory guns get abused and treated like Hi-Points just for the fun of it. Yet the bullets fly out of Hi-Point barrels just as reliably, fast and accurately as they do from the pretty $800-$2,000+ gun safe queens (so don’t scratch them, for Heaven’s sake!).

    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.

    At the same time, 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.

    Damn, they make an ugly gun. Few guns are as reliable, none for the price, but damn, they are ugly. Kind of like Markov’s but they work.

    "Features that Hi Point fans will like. "

    There are Hi Point fans out there?


    Well, HUGE turn off is the ten foot high bore axis on the new pistol. No one wants to hold a pistol at their abdomen to look over the sight.

    TWO......NUMBER TWO ------ If you can afford a silencer, ATF tax stamp, finger printing and background check for a silencer........you can afford something better than a new Hi Point with a threaded barrel.

    I see this as a cheap gun for some perp to put a can on for mischievous deeds. I will bet there are hundreds of ATF Agents sweating over this pistol.

    Well........maybe @Rickity Plumber can use a nice Christmas present this year.

    And Makarov / Tokarovs work in the worse conditions.

    " Maks " are not across the parking lot.........in the woods shooting fifty yard guns. They were not made for that. But for a threat at forty to fifty feet ...... two quick shots
    ( Double Tap ) center mass will get the job done.

    I read a thread on another site. There are former US Special Forces types who carry Makarovs in the summer when it is hotter than the hubs of Haites.

    Soviets.....and the Germans out of World War Two...... and up to today ; make ultra reliable weapons.
