Must be good if it can handle ejecting steel casing.

Guy at the gun shop who handled the transfer said as long as I keep it clean there never will be a problem. Reading online seems to support what he said.
200 rounds no issues so far.

Ouch!

Not to rain on your parade, but... I think the MSRP on a new C9 is something like $165.

And you must be huge because I don't think I have ever heard anyone describe a Hi-Point as "little".

Yes I know the MSRP is around $165 but then you add the store mark up + tax. As far as little, the grip is just too short for me and that is why I bought the extend mag.

MSRP = Store mark up. Some more than others, but no shop/store is buying these at MSRP

With sales tax and an extra mag, you probably paid up near MSRP. I'm not gonna say you got ripped-off. New C9s can be had for $135 on Gunbroker.com. But when you add $20 for shipping to an FFL, and the FFL's $20-$30 transfer fee, look where you're at. Then a spare mag is another $15.

Here's the CF380 I picked up used from one of my LGSs -- $70.



The aftermarket grips cost almost as much as the gun.

It is an amazing shooter. I'd have no problem carrying it though the 'hoodiest 'hood in the People's Republic of Chicago.

Now that is sweet! Really like the new grips.

Thanks. If you are looking to mod your HP, try these threads:

Wood Grips for C9/CF380 Pistols

Aftermarket Trigger for HP Pistols

Also, since you bought the extended mag for a "better fit"... Don't make the mistake of thinking that you need a good place to put your pinkie finger on the grip. Applying pressure with the pinkie during firing ("sympathetic sqeeze") is actually a common cause of shot placement errors. Hard to believe since the extended grip feels better when casually holding the gun, but it is true. You can kinda relate it to a golf grip, where only a couple of fingers are actually applying pressure on the grip. The rest just provide guidance.

Thanks for the info Chris. I think that there will be new grips in my future and maybe a new trigger too. Thanks again.

With the aluminum "Joey Trigger":



5 minutes to change the grips. 10 minutes to change the trigger (same if you do grips at same time).

Took her to the range today. Didn't do anything special. Just breaking her in. About 300 rounds ran flawlessly through my gun. I had a dud in my factory ammo though. My second or third in my entire life.

No, it wasn't a light strike. I double hit it and still nothing. Just a bad primer

Put the target out 30 feet, dropped the slide and quickly took one shot. Not bad for no warm up and the distance
