Hi Point 9MM C9 – Cheapest Pistol For CCW

Hi Point 9MM C9 – Cheapest Pistol For CCW

The Hi Point 9MM C9 is the cheapest pistol for CCW I know of. And it is made in the USA. It is about the same overall size as a Glock 19 at about 1/3 the price. Of course it holds about 1/2 the ammo. And, let’s be honest, nobody really thinks it as good as a Glock. It’s just a LOT cheaper option for a concealed carry pistol for somebody on a really tight budget. Let’s take one to the range and see how it shoots.

    HA! I’ve been checking out videos on the High Point for a few days now too, just curious I guess. I’ll probably never own one, but I wouldn’t mind shooting one just to say I did. Believe me, I’m not wealthy and buy budget friendly firearms too, but thankfully the few time a year I can afford a $200 gun, I can just as easily afford a $350 gun. So, I’ll probably go ahead and buy something around that price before I chance a C9:) HA!

  2. ŹÈÚŠ on December 9, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Hell yeah, hold that mag in and blast!

  3. INDIAN PREPPER 24*7 on December 9, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I always thing that BERETTA 92fs will be Look good in your hand .

  4. Justin Murray on December 9, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I am seeing guys polishing the feed ramp and tweaking the mag and mag spring and these are running flawlessly

  5. Larry on December 9, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    They are cheap AND reliable ,you watching Taurus ?

  6. Randy Wolfe on December 9, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Only trust the first shot with that gun. They are notorious for feeding issues mainly rounds nose diving in the magazine. I know I had one. Save your money and buy Taurus g2c if you want to go cheap.

  7. Shawn Caldwell on December 9, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Good truck gun!

  8. Paul Kelzer on December 9, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    WHY….? Police turn -in Glocks are FAR superior to this PLUS spare parts are EVERYWHERE

  9. tml mintableapp British Comedy Spy Exterminator on December 9, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Hi Point. That should take care of criminal agents of doom. lol I love the fact it is made to normal people. Repect to survival on purpose and the people at hi point. thumbs up and subbed. "tml mintable" nwo art

  10. Flat Plane Oregon on December 9, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Hose it down with clp.
    Run a bore snake through it
    Brush its teeth (chamber) and hit it with an air compressor before putting it to bed.
    Hi-Point doesn’t recommend tearing it down but every 1500 to 2000 rds anyway, and for the most part they don’t like to be ridden wet.
    I just wipe it with a little thin layer of Mobil 1. Gtg
    Love my 4595ts carbine

  11. Juan Crespo on December 9, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    I have 3 of them . Two 9MM and a 40. They work just fine.

  12. FLAVIUS CHARLES Tango on December 9, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Just bought one (my 1st gun purchase) Think I made a smart choice

  13. Dan.E on December 9, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Been watching your channel for a while and can I just say , the beard… 🤌🏽
    It’s a good look !

    Edit : this man said yeet cannon. +10 points

  14. Jamieluvsknives on December 9, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    I have the high point 45 acp carbine riffle I paid 375 dollars and it fires really well not much kick it feels solid but when I comes to pistols I stick with glock or smith and Wesson

  15. Beastro on December 9, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    I would rather trust a sling-shot.

  16. Lemannyith on December 9, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    What? C9? That’s the MF PROBLEM SOLVER!

  17. Bryan Oliver on December 9, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    One of or the best High Point 9mm pistol video I had ever watched .

  18. Jake’s shop and track talk 1 on December 9, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    I love a hi point for what it is. You said 28 rounds isn’t a good long range test on a firearm but there’s lots of video of shooting of these things trying to break them plus the average handgun doesn’t get that much ammunition fired through it in its whole life. Especially at this price point. A high point is designed for a single Mom that doesn’t have too much money with a dirtbag ex to keep in the night stand. Etc. I also always hear the save up for something better. But die for now I reckon. I don’t follow that logic. That’s Fudd gun control. Price them out. Somebody that would buy this gun is buying it in the manner that you buy a toaster and there’s nothing wrong with that.

  19. Jeff Colwell on December 10, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Had a hipoint cf 380 must have been a lemon total junk to those who have hipoints my hat is off to you with respect

  20. Sheldon J Plankton on December 10, 2021 at 12:01 am

    I wouldn’t beat my step children with that pistol

  21. David on December 10, 2021 at 12:02 am

    It is definitely not "about the same overall size of G19."

  22. Rob C on December 10, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Don’t trust your life with this thing you might not live to regret it

  23. EOJ 568 on December 10, 2021 at 12:07 am

    NEVER would leave a gun in my car that should be illegal to do that you are 100% corect your arming a bad guy with a gun again NEVER leave a gun in a car EVA 👽👽

  24. Ray Franchi on December 10, 2021 at 12:08 am

    That pot metal slide has been proven to last through many thousands and thousands of rounds including various stupid torture tests available to watch on YouTube. I have owned a dozen high points they’re not a piece of crap as described by many. I own Glocks and Smith & Wesson’s various other brands but still have a place in my heart for a hi point pistol.

  25. Starlin Sims on December 10, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Great thing about hi point, if you get the pistol or carbine of the same caliber, the magazine’s are interchangeable.

  26. C B on December 10, 2021 at 12:09 am

    To all the trash talkers,
    My hi point .45 was bought in the 90s, it still functions perfect still shoots well, est. 3k rounds through, to clean standard barrel cleaning and hose out with clp .

  27. Al Manji on December 10, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Definitely beats a stick. Thank you for this wonderful video. Stay blessed always. 🙂👌👍🙏

  28. randy emenhiser on December 10, 2021 at 12:13 am

    The company lost my respect when they chose an idiotic gamer name for their new pistol. I’m glad the project is plagued with problems. They deserve it. Having said that, I have a HP carbine and it hasn’t failed me yet.

  29. TheCooperman666 on December 10, 2021 at 12:13 am

    i think its hilarious that giant hulk of a gun has a lightened trigger xD

  30. Stephen Scharff on December 10, 2021 at 12:13 am

    My brother has one he bought it for the kids to shoot. It’s okay not my favorite at all. I don’t like the trigger or the twinkie-sized slide. But the kids have fun with it if they drop it or damage it it’s not a lot of money. He teaches them proper safety at the range. Will never have one of my possession though. If I’m going to buy a firearm. I want something that I can rely on or I feel like to rely on. This would be a great gun I guess for bedside home defense. But for concealed carry purposes there’s a lot better choices.

  31. Chris's variety channel on December 10, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Good review

  32. Pappy on December 10, 2021 at 12:14 am

    i have one of these .
    it’s ugly , bulky , heavy . . . but it goes "BOOM" every time i squeeze the trigger .
    except for steel cased ammo . . . it doesn’t like those . ejection problems with steel case .
    excellent warranty though too .

  33. Rev. Gunn on December 10, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I saw a security guard armed with a Hi-Point C9. I know they work well as I bought one in a pawnshop for 80 bucks a few years ago, and it runs very well. Loved your comment about leaving guns in a vehicle

  34. Terry Brown on December 10, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I love my hi point jhp .45 acp…that pistol is a tank. Literally no felt recoil and tac drives those 45 acp rounds.

  35. Arctodus Simus on December 10, 2021 at 12:17 am

    I got a Hi Point from a friend six years ago. It shoots fine. Never had a problem.

  36. azcoueshntr on December 10, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Your “soapbox” rant was perfect. There is no such thing as a ‘good truck gun’. Your weapon goes with you.

  37. cyn_mis_nih on December 10, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Hi-Points are what they are. They are low-cost, home defense pistols for me at least. I used to duty carry a 1911 but have since stopped working armed security. I would feel comfortable using my Model C for defending myself and could accept it missing for a few months to a year until get it back after I’m cleared of any wrongdoing, since the law takes your weapon when you’re involved in an incident. My model C, (it’s an old Hi-point that predates the C9) is accurate and the fixed sites are pretty much dead on. Practice makes perfect. Overall, a good video. ^_^

  38. Floyd McCarty on December 10, 2021 at 12:20 am

    If a pharmacist has a firearm I’ll bet it’s not a Hi point. Maybe a gold plated hi power

  39. Terrance Coard on December 10, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Due to Political Correctness the "Mozambique Drill" is now the "Failure to Dire Drill". I suppose that is why we have to call it something other than the Wuhan Virus. Now I want to check out a little known movie Dark of the Sun aka The Mercenaries to see if they performed the drill. That would lead me to The Wild Geese….just for research mind you. The old 38 Pawn Shop Special worked and is still working for criminals along with Hi-Point and Lorcins. Not everyone can afford a Wilson Combat (surprisingly it’s group size is not different from a quality $500 gun) so it is great to see something affordable. I would break in with Ball ammo and then move to HP’s. With care it could save your life and your loved ones. When seconds counts, the police are minutes away.

  40. Tom Olofsson on December 10, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Highpoint pistols are quite popular here in Chicago. I hope you got a deal on it. 🤣
    When you buy a Glock you tell your friends you bought a Glock. When you buy a Highpoint you tell your friends you bought a gun.

  41. Doug Graham on December 10, 2021 at 12:24 am

    People love their Hi Points!

  42. playarabbit on December 10, 2021 at 12:24 am

    As long as you clean it, it’s fine

  43. Arsenio Cubos on December 10, 2021 at 12:25 am

    How reliable or unreliable is hi point c9? I’m new to firearms and simply want to take a 9mm handgun to range not for home defense

  44. ncnyx on December 10, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Give me hipoint

  45. Kn Ry on December 10, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Probably 1200 rds through mine, Ugly and heavy as F, runs every brand of ammo flawlessly, fun as H! lol!

  46. Jeremiah Shine on December 10, 2021 at 12:25 am

    10-15 years ago I watched an old sheepdog ballistics guy de-bunk the Hi-point trash talk. His 2000 rounds had 0 malfunctions!

  47. Erol Kavlak Verizon on December 10, 2021 at 12:29 am

    I had a HP .40 cal. Years ago. Never a failure to function even when I neglected to clean it.
    It is bulky but quite functional.
    I’ve heard the C9 is very reliable..great video Bryan

  48. James Hall on December 10, 2021 at 12:29 am

    It’s a cheap gun. You get what you pay for but it is still a piece of crap.
