Ordinarily a military term, but recently having found its way into everyday jargon, a point man is member of an operation who leads at the front of the group. Generally this causes them to be the first person exposed to threat or danger.

The act of being a point man is to "be on point," "take point," or "walk point."
I'll be your point man since you're not familiar with the area. Make sure you watch my back.

Points that one receives upon the completion of a distinctly manly task. More often than not, intelligent points and man points are inversely proportional.

Points received for doing stereotypical macho actions like starting a fight with a professional boxer, taunting someone to throw a dart at your face, lighting a fart on fire, or holding a scorching object in your hand for an extended period of time
-Dude, I totally just walked barefoot over jagged rocks.
-Wow, you really earned some major man points.
