The RECOILtv Staff Caught up with the folks from Hi-Point at SHOT Show 2020 to learn more about the Hi-Point YEET Cannon 9mm pistol.

You asked for it, you named it, and here it is … the infamous Hi Point YEET Cannon.

#hipoint #yeetcannon #yeetpistol

American made, this little guy sports a ton of features that owners have been asking for, and all at a very attractive price.

Check out this perfectly named, redesigned pistol and see how excited Dave is talking about it! The Hi Point YEET Cannon features a Glock-style front sight, threaded barrel (1/2 x28), two-slot Picatinny rail (the older version was single slot), interchangeable backstraps, rubberized grip, grip safety, and is optics-ready.

The Makaro-style magazine is another new addition to look forward to. MSRP is $200 and availability will be later this year.

February Update: The pistol has been renamed as the YEET Canon G1 Special Edition. The YC9 will be released later this year.

To understand the origins of the word “YEET” check out this video. Also see RECOIL's coverage of some of the hilarious Hi Point meme.
