  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Why... for the love of God...... why?
  19. FULLY semi full auto : I dont know about guns..

    AIWB = “appendix carry”

    BUIS = Back Up Iron Sights

    FUBAR = things aren’t going as predicted/hoped :)

    Stippling - a method used to improve the grip, so a pistol is easier to hold when wet, muddy etc. If done poorly, also a great way to immediately reduce the value of and appearance of polymer pistols. Generally The latter if done by an amateur and the former if done by a professional.
  22. BCG-bolt carrier group
    EBR-evil black rifle
  23. BTF: Brass To Face.
  24. Fmj : full metal jacket ammo. Fully copper coated bullet ammo used for practice.

    The capacity of your pistol magazine, plus the one cartridge loaded in the chamber.

    DA/SA. : double action / single action . A pistol of modern design where the first trigger pull pulls back a heavy hammer pull.. but the next shots are automatically loaded with a lighter single action pull from that point on.

    Striker action : a design where there is no internal or external hammer and pulling the slide back preloads the bullet firing parts, so that pulling the trigger causes the striker to pull back further then releases it to fire the cartridge .. the parts look a lot like a bic pen where you. Click the pen out and in.

    FTF : gun failure where a gun fails to fire

    FTE : gun failure when the gun fires, but the empty cartridge case fails to extract.

    Battery : gun slide after firing or loading the slide closes tight to allow the next round to be fired... if the slide stays too far back and does not fully close the gun is out of battery. Like a car door that does not fully shut.

    Stovepipe: the gun fires but the empty brass case does not fully leave the gun.. the empty brass jams keeping the slide open.. looking like the stovepipe on the roof of a cabin.

    Magazine disconnector: a pistol that requires a magazine to be inserted for the gun to function or fire.
