    Every brand of gun has fanbois, all with different character traits.

    All guns matter!

    I'm a HK fan but I know many people here who are snowflakes and cry babies.

    Sticks and stones and all that crap. Who really gives a $hi£?!

    But I can understand your consternation with that guy and the situation. Seems like the negative connotations actually apply to him.

    As @dms16 stated, boi denotes immaturity. I’d say that guy lacked it in spades.

    "Is calling someone an HK fanboi an insult?"

    It all depends on the intent of the comment and can vary according to how it's used, just like most everything. IMO most of the time the word "fanboi" is used to imply some sort of insult. A more neutral, acceptable term to refer to someone who likes HK's would be "HK enthusiast".

    Today's language and words are changing so often that it often hard to keep up with the current meaning of any given term. Frankly, I don't pay a lot of attention to most of it. Just continue to doing what pleases you and don't worry about what others say.

    I really appreciate everyone's input ... I'd have copied the posts but he deleted it. I think because he was showing his ass. It wasn't intended as an insult but of course text doesn't have inflection.
    Also, I did apologize but that was sorta sarcastic ... told him it wasn't intended as an insult and sorry I hurt his little feelers ... and when I realized he was the moderator I told him that with is attitude to just ban me and I'm out.

    Thanks for that info, it was at the back of the cabinet and my wife and daughter aren't into guns, not even HK's, so no one has used it. To be honest I'm not sure how the HK cups ended up in in the cabinet, they used to sit on a shelf in my loading room, we moved and theres stuff I still haven't found, and thats been 10 years ago ... on the other hand I still find stuff I forgot I had.
    I think its called "Old-Timers"

    If you really want to do something, you'll find a way
    If you don't, you'll find an excuse

    What’s this “Old Timers” sheit? I went out Saturday and shot a hundred rounds of 9mm in my P30SK that I loaded in ‘99 and found in the back of the ammo locker.

    It shot good and so did I.
