When Samuel Clemens coined the phrase "truth is stranger than fiction" in his 1897 work, Following the Equator: A Journey Around the World, even he could not have foreseen just how true that would one day ring. There have been strange gun names before: the Dardick revolver (named after the odd round it fired: the "Dardick tround"); the EAA Windicator; and who could forget the full name of the FG-42, aka Fallschirmjägergewehr (OK, that last one may be more of a shot at the German language in general, and its peculiar affinity for compound words). Nothing quite compares, however, to a gun whose official name derives from modern slang for—according to that most official of sources, "Urban Dictionary"—"To discard an item at high velocity." A moniker bestowed in, of all places, an online poll. As such, the "Yeet Cannon" has officially arrived with Hi-Point's new 9 mm Luger pistol, the YC9, set to debut in late 2019.

Not wanting to leave out a classic, however, quite a few folks made it known they would like to see a model of the current C9 ... uh ... "yeeted up." To such ends, Hi-Point has announced it will release a limited number of the current C9s with "YEET CANNON G1" laser engraved on the slide. We're not talking about some puny engraving here either; this engraving is all caps and in a large font. The additional work will add roughly $20 to the price of this limited edition C9, bringing overall MSRP to $179. YEET CANNON is trademarked by Hi-Point Firearms.
