    I know there's a lot of internet abbreviations that some of you use that I haven't a clue what it means and have to look them up once in awhile.

    Good topic. In general, I'd just as soon not abbreviate and would prefer that people type things out whenever possible.

    Whacker is a new one on me . I always thought the term was whacko.

    Explain Copper Glock Grease and keep them out of the gun side of GT. They are mean to new guys. Especially if they have a reasonable question but did not spend extensive time with the search feature first.

    Oh, GT=Glock Talk.

    And Okie. Mark was the nicest guy you would ever meet.
