Hi-Point Firearms Announce New 10mm Model, the JXP10 Pistol

Hi-Point Firearms is a company with, shall we say, a bit of a reputation. Their budget-friendly products, which they call “the working man’s gun”, have become the quintessential meme guns. To their credit, they generally lean into this characterization. This is a brand which used a social media campaign to get the public to name one of its guns, which resulted in the infamous “Yeet Cannon”. Now they’re expanding their lineup with a new version which has been much requested by its customer base, this time in 10mm. Meet the new Hi-Point JXP10.

TFB B-Side Podcast: The History of Hi-Point with Dave Kiwacka

In this episode of the TFB B-Side podcast, we’ve brought on Dave Kiwacka to talk a bit about the history of the Hi-Point Firearms company. Hi-Point is probably most well known for its very affordable firearms. While they may lack the polish and flashiness of higher-priced firearms, what they lack in that department they more than make up for in raw affordability and durability. TFBTV Executive Producer James Reeves has done some pretty extensive reliability and durability tests on both their handguns and carbines and found them to excel in both categories. Many Hi-Point customers out there are still waiting on the much anticipated Yeet Cannon or YC-9 which is set to bring new features, more magazine capacity, and optics capability to the Hi-Point line. Today Dave and I talk a bit about the origin story of Hi-Point Firearms, their ethos as an American company, and where they’re at in terms of progress on the YC-9.

Pawn Shop Finds – What Will $65.00 Buy You?

Recently, I have been accused of being an “elitist” and a “gun snob” in the comment section of various articles.  I will be the first person to admit I love my share of high quality and functional firearms. After some reflection, I figured I would go out of my comfort zone for the reader’s entertainment. I hit a dozen gun stores in search of the cheapest, cringeworthy, and downright interesting gun I could find. I will occasionally go on a gun store tour in my area and hit every gun store I know of in a 100-mile radius. It gives me a chance to talk with various people selling guns in my area and sometimes even gives me ideas for writing. This time around I took a friend and we decided to look for the cheapest option we could find.
