I've been around forums pretty much since Al Gore invented the internet, and forums evolved from BBS. I am have been a moderator of quite a number of forums. And I'm not trying to start a "1 forum is better than another". And I never visit only 1 forum on a subject. In my gun hobby, I probably visit at least 10 different forums. Some are specific to a gun manufacturer such as hi-point or S&W or Saiga, etc... So I understand the need and desire to visit multiple forums to learn more and discuss more.

But what I wanted to say was that of the 2 forums I visit that are dedicated only to hi-point; this forum and HPFF; it is like night and day. Not sure if the HPFF is more the "Official" hi-point forum, but they do tend to have a lot more daily postings. But Hipointtalk.net is so much better. People are friendlier. People aren't as arrogant. People tend to truly care and want to help. Overall, it's a much friendlier forum. When I visit the HPFF forum, it's usually only to lurk and discover answers to certain concerns. But if I can find the answer here first, I always try that option. And I will always ASK questions on this forum first before even considering posting on the HPFF forum.

Anyway, probably isn't a big deal, but I just wanted to say thanks to the administrator; to the moderators; and mostly to the contributors of this forum who post questions, advice, and comments. This forum is definitely my preferred source of Hi-Point information. Thanks again. mike....

You've hit upon the very reason that HPT is home to most of those here. ;)

As you said, this forum tends to be much more user friendly and laid back. And the only reason we succeed at that is because of our members. As Mod's and Admin's our job titles are more titles than anything else. We've taken an old idea and made it work by having few rules and letting the member's act as adults.

Granted, as adults some of us tend to be nothing more than over grown kids. :whistle:
But none the less we make it work. ;)

I'm glad you see that and appreciate it for what it is, and we're lucky to have member's such as yourself to add to our enjoyment factor! :thumb:

thanks, Christcorp. Ape is exactly right. The people who are here are the reason this is an ok place to hang out. And thanks for realizing we are in no way competing with them, simply coexisting. I'm sure this gets some eye rolling or whatever but we do try to keep things on a mildly even keel.
Lots of folks end up here due to being banned, hacked off in general, etc but we have very little to do as moderators, and for that we are glad. We hope to be informative and friendly, and though we sometimes get off track within a topic, things usually get resolved.
You're banned, BTW. :roflol: It's an EO. Dang I'm funny.

Ditto to all the hairy one said. Also, you are correct in assuming that HPFF is the more 'official' site, sort of, I think. I don't know, or really care, who owns HPFF, but I think they are connecter with MKS Supply, HI-Point's distributer, somehow. HPT hasn't been around as long as HPFF. Our founder, 995, started HPT as an alternative for those who wanted to enjoy the experience of a HP forum, without all the restrictions. He's since dropped out of sight, and worried that the we would lose our home, we decided to move the forum and continue on our own. As always we appreciate the membership for making it all work.

+1 to all the above. Strange thing, but our little slice of the 'net is sorta the Shangri La of the forums. Very few issues, very few arguments, very much fun, and darned good info without nearly as much BS, bad info, or repeated garbage.
I do go to both forums, but I come to this one to enjoy, and to the other one to try and combat evil and misinformation.... :mrgreen:

Glad you like it here! Wipe your feet, clean up after yourself, act right...wait, why should we ask you to do that? No one else does.... :roll:
I keeed!

Yes the other forum is the "official" forum recognized by Hi Point, but we do not let that bother us...... ultimately we are not here for Hi Point, we are here for Hi Point owners and we do a pretty good job at providing them with a kicked back place to call home.

As far as Hi-Point's are concerned, this is my home.
I started out as an un-biased member of both forums until I finally got tired of the rampant rudeness and overall dickheadedness. I deleted my account and never looked back. :doublegun2:
I figure if my friends here can't help me and I can't figure it out myself then I don't need to know (lol).

The foreign policy of the US has been one of "empire building" ever since the First World War. The Constitution authorizes government to provide for "national DE-fense", not "international OF-fense". If Americans were really interested in promoting our national safety, they would realize that a policy of constant foreign intervention directly undermines that stated goal. Our country has military forces stationed in 135 countries around the world, and we are influencing their governments and economies either directly or indirectly in every case. That is the political equivalent of poking them in the eye with a sharp stick.
