Hi-Point carbines may not be their most popular firearms, but they are definitely their best. These American-made guns are incredibly reliable, accurate, and easy to use, all wrapped up in an economical package.
The Hi-Point has a point accuracy of about ten meters at best. It’s worth noting that 10 meters (roughly 30 feet) is dangerously close to the 21-foot rule.
Hi-Point Firearms, also known as Strassell’s Machine, Inc (distributed by MKS Supply), is an American firearms manufacturer based in Mansfield, Ohio. All of their firearms are manufactured at various locations in Ohio.
But Sccy, Taurus and Hi-Point are definitely the most popular budget 9mm handguns out there. The Sccy CPX 2 isn’t meant to be the prettiest gun out there, but it’s meant to be one of the cheapest. Sccy’s goal is to arm as many Americans as possible.
Prosecutors, including in Utah, point this out when deciding whether a police shooting was legal. It’s called the “21-foot rule” and means that someone running towards the police with a knife can get about 21 feet before the officers draw their gun and shoot.

And lifetime means just that – free repairs for the life of the gun, whether you’re the first or third-party owner. Hi-Point® service is fast, friendly and expertly executed.

40 Smith & Wesson, 4.5″ barrel, 10+1 rounds.
Nevertheless, the Taurus G2C is much easier to shoot. Recoil is strong on both guns, but less so on the Taurus G2C due to its extra weight. The Taurus G2C’s trigger is also much easier to operate than the SCCY CPX1, so I have to give the Taurus a clear win in terms of shootability.
Originally the company name was going to be Skyy, but following trademark concerns about SKYY Vodka using the name, the name was changed to SCCY. As of 2010, the company manufactures all firearms in a factory in Daytona Beach, Florida. Prior to 2010, the guns were manufactured in South Daytona, Florida.
Conclusion. The Taurus G2C is a very affordable CCW pistol with a high 12+1 capacity and great reliability (so far) but still suffers from a long and gritty trigger, external safety and might be off the mark for some. Many people will say that you should just save more money and buy a better brand firearm.
If you consult the interwebs, the slang word “yeet” means a few different things (none of them dirty), but one of those meanings is simply “to throw something”. It’s a gun, it throws a bullet… so of course you get Yeet Cannon. Makes perfect sense. And it was perfect meme fodder on social media.
Layer interpretation: It is not illegal to own a Hi-Point pistol. But it is unlawful for a licensed gun shop to sell or transfer a Hi-Point pistol or any pistol made of similar metals.
The 21 Feet Rule
It basically states that an approaching attacker with a knife will travel 21 feet in the time it takes you to draw and fire your weapon.
Except where otherwise unlawful, any person over the age of 18 who is not prohibited from possession of firearms may have a loaded or unloaded firearm at their residence, temporary residence, campground or private property owned or lawful possession of the person.
Knife even the field
In a self-defense situation, using a knife – or any pain relief device – can quickly render an attacker defenseless, much faster than trying to punch or kick them < /b>.
I’ve gotten all three of my 45’s on the range and the Hi Point is just as reliable as the others.. makes a bang every time and I actually have a better group with it than the others probably because of that of weight…it’s a weapon I wouldn’t want to carry, but for the price, it’s an excellent home defense weapon for someone on a budget.
