Fanboys. There is a lot of talk around here about how distasteful “Fanboys” are. Those effing Glock Fanboys are the worst, etc… And I agree, to a point. Some people are Fanboys, but can’t tell you why. They are annoying. But those who are able to articulate why they are Fanboys are compelling. Lots of that Fanboy talk comes from actual Fanboys, though. Some are 1911 Fanboys, some like other guns. The double standard of Fanboydom is pretty funny. Some of our Senior Members/Supporting Members/Moderators are the biggest Fanboys on the planet, but they will openly deride Fanboys. Am I a Fanboy? Hell yes. I am passionate about Glocks. I am passionate about 1911s. I am passionate about M14s/M1As. I am passionate about S&W revolvers. I am passionate about Remington shotguns. I am passionate about Beretta O/U shotguns. I am passionate about Mini 14s. I am passionate about AR15s. I am passionate about Mauser based rifles. I am passionate about Cold Steel knives. I am passionate about a great many things. But why am I passionate about these things? Because I’ve used them all beyond the point that they should have failed, but they did not fail. I’ve watched them all do things that should not have been possible. Every item above works. Some better than others, but all work, and I trust them all. So if someone is a Fanboy, ask them why. I used to think that Hi-Points were garbage. Cheap, blocky, pot metal garbage. But the Hi-Points have Fanboys. Really? So rather than talk crap about something I knew very little about, I decided to engage some Hi-Point Fanboys. I was informed that they work, and work well for a LONG time. And that the company will replace one in an instant. Will I ever buy a Hi-Point? Nope. But I can appreciate the passion that the Fanboys have. I know that if someone ever points a Hi-Point at me that I cannot count on it malfunctioning. That could be a very valuable lesson.
