    Many threads have abbreviations, initials and shooting terminology, that as a 'Newbie'(inexperienced in the shooting world), I am not fully understanding the true meaning of the thread.

    My suggestion is: 'Glock Talk' would create a thread in 'the Front office' section that would list abbreviations, initials and terminology with thier meaning.

    The thread would be 'closed' and any member could add to the list by sending you(Eric) a 'PM' - Personal Message and if you approved, it would be add to the list by you(Eric).


    Think about it!

    I concur. A list and explanation of abbreviations, etc. would be nice. I think every web forum should have this. It helps the noobs get up to speed quicker.

    In the same post, I've seen DE mean three different things:
    DE = Desert Eagle (Magnum Research)
    DE = Double Eagle (Colt)
    DE = Delta Elite (Colt)
