    I was just over on Hi Point Firearms on Face Book. A guy had posted earlier today that he was unable to join here because he didn't own a HP & had to prove he owned a Hi Point with a picture of him holding a Hi Point?
    I didn't know there were such privileges here!

    Looks like Bull's got his fancitron setting a pinch too high..I had to google that....:D


    There is NOT and has NEVER been (to my knowledge) any requirement to own a HiPoint product let alone provide any evidence to become a member here.


    And you may quote me ( or copy and paste) on that.

    if this is the new rule i'm out.
    Swagz you dems refused to have voter id because it was too hard for poor undocumented aliens to vote 7 times each for democrat officials if they had to prove who they were and now you pull this ****.
    Seriously we'll let in damn near everytroll of course this isn't the rule.

    Above post was loaded with humor.

    Here is his post on FB. He mentions HPFF FB but it is a public spot, all you have to do is like it & your on? I had never heard this before, so I thought I would ask?

    Have a question and not able to join Hi Point forum here on Facebook because they want proof that I own one which I do not and a picture to verify that I am who I am lol. I was wanting to get a 995TS 9mm carbine and wanted to know if a Streamlight TLR-4 (flashlight/laser combo) would fit the weaver rails on the carbine? Thanks for any help

    reading your post i suspect there is a hipoint forum group on facebook that requires proof of ownership to avoid being trolled by other gun owners. the wording "here on facebook" sort of suggests its not here on hpff.

    Some of us do possess more than a rudimentary vocabulary.....
    I'm just used to speaking simpler for my less conservative friends.......

    That sounds like our old buddy Rippy and his FaceBook site he promoted in his very first post here. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    No, there is a Hi Point Firearms Forum page on FB, run by Hi Point. It's a free page all you have to do is like it & your on.

    I don't do Facebook but I mozied over there and this is the original post:

    So it appears he wanted to join the (or one of the) Hipoint facebook pages.
    Not this forum...it appears.

    Anyway maybe one of you Facebookers can mention to him that he's welcome over here.

    There should be screening.
     
  16. If we did that, we'd never be able to enjoy your company.
    :p

    If we screened for mental illness half the members would be gone :D

    If we screened for mental illness half the members would have to hand in their guns.
