Born and raised in Instagram, the Hi-Point YEET CANNON YC9 is the most 2019 gun of 2019. It all started when Hi-Point announced their new generation of $200 9mm handgun to be released into the market by the end of the year. Here’s a short overview of the gun filmed before it had a name.
The naming contest "Name the Nine" started on Instagram and out of hundreds of names that were considered, YEET CANNON YC9 got the most votes by far. Then Hi-Point started the second phase of voting where they took the top 10 voted names and pitted them against each other, only that YC9 was missing from the list.
The amount of outrage was comparable to when The Bachelorette was interrupted by tornado warnings. Eventually the company clarified that the final vote will be between YEET CANNON YC9 and the winning name from the list of ten that no one cares about. That vote will start on July 15 on Hi-Point's website, but we already know who's going to win that vote.
If you're like me and you can't wait till the end of the year, you'll be pleased to know that another 9mm handgun, YEET CANNON G1 is now available for preorder. Unlike the YEET CANNON YC9 this one has the words YEET CANNON laser-engraved on the side.
And if you do end up buying it, don't forget to YEET on your friends, YEET on your family, YEET on your classmates, and YEET on movie theater goers.
