They are. They are also very accurate and they kick surprisingly much. I've shot plenty of handguns and never noticed the recoil, but the little nine along with the action, pops you in the shoulder. Nothing uncomfortable, but it surprises you if you haven't experienced it before. I like how it folds in two and I can slip it in the carry case. Try one if you get a chance.
Truthfully, my eyes are old. I look through the rear sight and see the big shroud of the front sight and with both centered where I want them, the bullet goes. A nine mm bullet doesn't drop significantly at 50 yards to have to aim high. At longer distances, I might have to pick it up just a little. It's comfortable to sight and shoot.

Yeah, mine takes Glock mags so I have plenty. Sorry, with the moving around and babysitting, my camera cord got lost and I can't download the darn pictures that I have taken. When I get it figured out, I'll post a couple. Have a great day. Oh, since I'm in Ohio visiting one of my daughters for a couple of days, I'm going to try to hit MKS Supply tomorrow to look at Hi-Point carbines to see how they fit and feel. I wanted to go to the factory, but it's too far off for what we have to do and at least I can see the main supply house, I hope.
