I just got off the phone with Charlie at MKS Supply who’s being gracious enough to ship a Hi-Point C-9 out for me to run in the local Steel Challenge matches.
He’s an incredibly nice guy, and I’m frankly surprised at the response the blog post has generated, both in page views and in official attention from people associated with Hi-Point.
The gun should be here next week, and I’ll post updates as things develop.
Just as a quick addendum to the rules in the first post, while I may be skeptical of Hi-Points, I do promise to give the gun a fair shake. I’ll run a couple of hundred rounds through it for break in and to make sure it runs with my hand loads before undertaking the official tests. If my load needs to be tweaked a bit for the gun to run reliably, I’ll adjust it accordingly. Which is only fair, it’s what I do with any of my other competition guns.
I’m definitely looking forward to this. 😀
