I agree with you Don, g****s ARE ugly. I haven't ever seen one in a gun store that I had the slightest desire to hold.

You also got a lifetime warranty with that pistol!

Congratulations on your purchase, they're a great gun in my opinion. Sure I think they're mildly ugly and by all means extremely top heavy, and far from compact, but shoot and perform flawlessly. My father had a Hi-Point C9 that he bought brand new about 4 or 5 years ago for only a $130, and shot over 1000 rounds through it without even one hiccup or FTE's. I recently about a month ago bought me my first gun a Hi-point .45 caliber and have shot 150 rounds through it with out any jams, FTE's or any other hiccup. I would have no problem trusting my life with it even though I only paid $180 brand new. My opinion is the only haters of Hi-point have never actually spent the time shooting one is is only going by looks and price and calling it a bad gun or as the employees at the gun range I go to calls them, a heavy paper weight. However I would trust it over over the Glock they let me use once that jammed up over 20 times in a session with 50 rounds of ammo and I eventually had to give back to them in favor of a different firearm, after it jammed several times on them after they kept saying it was just the way I was shooting, which turned out to be wrong and it was just a very unreliable handgun and would rather trust my life to a butter knife then to use their Glock. I just hope my newest gun, a Glock 22 performs as good as my Hi-point, and that it isn't as bad as the only one that the gun range had.

Default hi-point c-9 with ghost sight

first. You need to polish the feed trough. I do not like the fact you have to remove a rolled pin for disssembly but for the price it's not bad. Just a pain. You HAVE to polish the trough or you will have misfeeds(hangups). Best thing is a dremel with a cone polishing tool. Use mild polishing compound and get every bit of black off of the trough. You also need to use rounds that have a nice taper. No blunt tips rounds like federeal 147 grain hydro-shoks. I use 115 grain remington J.H.P.'s. Also, mount the ghost sights. It's almost like using an Aimpoint Comp M2 or M4 on an M-4. (I am ex infantry)You can fire both eyes open and it is awesome quick aquisition. Do not try to put fluouresent paint on them. Enough practice and it is instant aquisition. As usual use your finger alongside the action to get your inititial aim then go to the sight.I fired over a thousand rounds and mine is very accurate at 10-20 paces(30-60 feet). Very close to my Beretta 92FS(Italian made) I heard from others thee are flukes that they don't like mainly cause they think they are sloppier than a quality name one(Beretta,Glock,Ruger,Etc) but I got a very good one. If you do not polish the feed trough you will be screwed or worse.I love mine but would like more capacity with the clip. I only load 7 per clip and not eight but carry 2 extra clips on top of the one in the weapon. good luck but shoot, shoot, shoot. At least 500 rds. before you conceal carry and use it to rely on! I can't stress this more. If yours screws up sent it back(Lifetime warranty) and get a replacement. VERY IMPORTANT!!! Don't chance it.
