Internet “yeets” all over Ohio gun manufacturer’s pistol-naming contest
MANSFIELD, OH (WCMH) — A Mansfield-based gun manufacturer is crowdsourcing the name of its new nine-millimeter pistol, and the internet has responded.
Beginning earlier this month, Hi-Point Firearms urged social media followers to submit names for its new pistol, and the Yeet Cannon (YC-9) came out on top with 556 entries, according to the manufacturer’s Instagram page
Hi-Point's 'Name the Nine Contest' Takes Curious Turn as HK Weighs In
HI-POINT’S ‘NAME THE NINE CONTEST’ TAKES CURIOUS TURN AS HK WEIGHS IN

When Ohio-based Hi-Point asked the internet to suggest a name for their new 9mm handgun, the Yeet Cannon fired and the Germans got in on the act. Hi-Point’s “Name the Nine” contest promised to give their fans a stake at naming their promised new handgun design. Initial name suggestions after a week of polling reportedly garnered 7,880 entries, with the most prolific, 556, being for Yeet Cannon or YC-9.
Yeet, a word that has crept into acceptance in the past few years, is generally employed as a multi-use exclamation. However, four days after announcing Yeet Cannon was topping polls, Hi-Point on Tuesday announced a final list of 10 proposed alpha-numeric names, none of which included the past crowd favorite. This sparked a backlash on the company’s social media page, with some 1,600 largely negative comments, many questioning the absence of Yeet.
I will 100% buy one if yeet cannon wins
Would it be fair to say they caught a yeet infection?
Problem Solver would have been awesome.
Looks like Aero may be capitalizing on it
Oh, wait looks like they smartened up
lol also a petition Sign the Petition
My guess is that it came from the Oakland, CA area slang expression / call, "YEE!". Being from Boston, I first heard "yee" around 15 years ago listening to Bay Area music. I guess it finally made it's way into white america. Most of Gen Z wasn't even alive then.

Weird flex, but OK.
f*** im old
Gang banger special
PSA also jumped on the Yeet bandwagon:
While I lol at the yeet FA setting, I shutter at the thought of how corny and played out SHITshow 2020 is going to be.
Must have been a pro-gun post.
Nah, it was a gag post from Cold Steel Knives, they announced the YEET CLEEVER 9, it was actually quite funny.
Kind of related, made me chuckle anyways.
Cheap Ass Gun. It speaks to the intended market.
I have nipples greg... can you milk me
I had a female dog, spayed as a puppy. We acquired a kitten that was separated from mommy a little too soon and the pair developed into besties. Or would that beasties?
Anyway the kitten kept nursing the dog and after quite a while, her milk came in.
It worked for them, so yes, chances are if you two work at it long enough, it'll work.
My name’s not greg, and I’m assuming that was supposed to be a PM to him?
I don't even like how much yeet is getting spammed, but I am dying at the way that Hi-point dared to wade into the sea of retards that is the internet and is surprised when the first step it took went 180° in the opposite direction they intended. All of which I say they instigated by offering things like the dolla' dolla' bill y'all hi-point.
Separate names with a comma.
