I met a GLOCKTALKER. I think.

So they opened up a new shooting range in my neck of the woods... Supposed to be more upscale than the normal range. From their web:

65,000 square feet
Four separate ranges totaling 42 lanes
Two 25-yard 12-lane ranges
One 50-yard 10- lane range
One 100-yard 8-lane range
1600 square foot two level live fire shoot house
Simulator Training Room
Four Classrooms
Dojo
Fulltime Gunsmith
Locker Rentals
Firearm Rentals including Class III
Two Customer Lounges
Café

It’s much closer to my house than the range across town I am accustomed to shooting at. So when my annual membership at the old range expired… rather than renew… I decided to go check out the new place. It was as advertised. Awesome facility. Backstops allow for just about anything you want to throw at them. No restrictions on steel cased ammo... more up-to-date Targetworx retrieval system... friendly staff. Needless to say, I signed up for an annual on the spot.

I have to pass it on my way to and from work. Before I knew it… I had been on a 4 day shooting streak. The lady at the front desk who signed me up joked that I should start bringing my sleeping bag with me. LOL

Well.. one of the days I was there… a gentlemen struck up a convo with me as we both exited to the lobby at the same time. He asked a few questions about my ar pistol… recommend a 300 aac upper and suggested a single point sling for stabilizing. I have both on order, but it was good info none the less.

Had a pleasant convo with him… then it dawned on me... Dude was dropping GLOCKTALK slang and code words on me left and right! OMG… a bead of sweat quickly developed on my forehead. I was about to ask him if he was a GT member… but then I opted against it. Just my luck… I’d ask and intro myself… then next thing I know tbo shows up at my door with the bracelets.

Has this ever happened to you? Met someone in real life… and in the back of your mind your are thinking… I wonder what his/her handle is on GT? Did you ask or did you keep it to yourself? What was the result?

Anywhoo… IF that was you. See you tonight. I’ll be there around 6:00.

What is GT slang??? Pretty sure a lot of our slang is internet or gun-forum generic.

Bravia and Jambog are the only two I can think of.

If he didn't, you didn't have to follow his orders

2BB is GT. Jambog is MOSTLY GT. Cuz isn't. YMMV is older than GT. Mall Ninja is ubiquitous.

Coulda been one of us. Not me. I wish there was a range like that near me.

I worked with a guy who was/is probably a Glocktalker before I was one. Always telling stories about Glocks being thrown out of helicopters into pools of flaming acid and the like, talked with a lisp of sorts. Yeah, he's probably reading this now.

"It's on cuz", while it didn't originate here, did in fact reach it's slang zenith on GT.

Anything involving a Bravia, jacked up teef, the 10mm, or yoga pants?

Yoga pants is a fairly recent addition.

:
I know I saw a GT black rifle forum member at Sam's Club once. This guy was walking around in khaki 5.11's with a bad case of Dunlap's disease, khaki combat boots, paracord bracelets on each wrist, a BCM t-shirt and he was scanning left and right constantly.

That could be code for "are you GT".

Ask a stranger if he has a Bravia and a girl with jacked up teef. If he breaks out in hilarious laughter, you got your answer.

I snapped this pic in Wal-Mart the other day...

The Okie Corral

Honest to god, he was telling the "Biker 4 Jesus" guy that he served in the "sandbox" with Blackwater.

I did wonder if he was undercover GT...
