    Okay, I'm seeing a ton of new acronym's on this forum. I thought I would put thread together for you to add any TLAs you might now of that are used on this board. I'm almost 40 years old, and speak English as my first and only language, so text speak doesn't work so well with me :)

    Here we go:

    TLA = Three Letter Acronym

    SHTF = Excrement Hit The Fan (A theoretical situation that requires that the posting member utilize force to save the life of a loved one or their own)

    TEOTWAWKI = The End of The World as We Know It (I guess this is 2012)

    OP = Original Poster (The person originating this thread, as an example, I am the OP of this thread)

    Mall Ninja = A term used to describe a gun owner (or gun owner in one's mind) that was able to perform super human feats while using his or her weapon in the most inhospitable enviornment. Note: Most Mall Ninja's refuse to believe that they are afflicted with this particular ailment, and will vehomently deny that they are speaking the truth, even when they have in excess of ten Mall Ninja stories.

    OKIE = The Mayor of Glock town, sweetheart to Lone_Wolfe, and current record holder of most posts by an employed non troll, gun owning, dog loving red blooded American.

    Troll = Generally someone who has no real life, and spends most of their welfare funded life posting in Internet Forum's to induce a negative response that will feed a stereotype that individual has re: the forum they are trolling.

    BUG = Back-up Gun. (Only relevant if you don't carry a Glock, as there is no need for a back-up gun when carrying a Glock, they don't fail, and never need cleaning :))

    10mm = Ten Millimeter. Most owners of 10mm believe that it should be represented as 10MM, because 10mm pistols apparently fracture the wrist of inexperianced shooters, and are clearly the winners of any caliber war.

    FWIW = For What it's Worth. (Generally followed by the poster's opinion)

    Please add as you see fit. I'm sure I'm forgetting some :)

    Uh, you shootin' them danged .40 Smith and Wesson loads in a mighty 10mm case again?

    The firing of a proper 10mm cartridge will not fracture a wrist. It will remove the entire arm of the inexperienced or careless 10mm shooter with such force that the arm will come to rest at least 6 but not more than 11 time zones away.

    Handloaders have reported arms in orbit and an observer on the ISS supposedly has a photo of an arm clutching a Colt Delta passing by, but these are not confirmed.


    Acronym contribution: SEB; Speak English, boy! U usually uttered when someone my age attempts to engage in verbal communication with most under the age of thirty.
