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
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!).
Okay, enough chit chat, let’s get down to business.
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.
