    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    There is no communication until the person being spoken to knows what the speaker is saying. I, for one, do not waste time on threads that contain parts that mean nothing to me.

    The order of severity of the situation is:
    SNAFU - situation normal - AFU
    TARFU - This Are Really - FU
    FUBAR - FU Beyond All Recognition

    And the proper response to BOHICA is:

    WETSU - We Eat This, err, Stuff, Up

    I know that going by the actual license it would be a LTCF but, technically that's a boo boo according to the PA Constitution.

    A Wooster is what Elmer Fudd calls a male chicken.

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Actually, Wooster is a town/small city in northern OH (Ohio) a few miles west of Akron, which used to be the rubber capital of the world before all the tire manufacturers moved overseas. And Akron is a few miles south of Cleveland.

    We need standardized language here.

    I see CCW, GFL, CHL, CPL, CLL , CCC, ABC, and 123, CPA, might as well also say XXX, when people are referring to a carry license.

    EBC, BBC, NBC, and CNN are commonly referred to what as I understand as some ones preference of carry..
    okay so im going a little overboard but sheesh.

    Why dont we just have a forum standard.

    I honestly do not know what a CPL or CHL is much less a ΣεΙ is... sigh

    Reminds me of when I first went in the Navy using crap like...
    Comcardesgru1
    Desron7
    centcomcardesampgrutaccom12
    I sort of understand the frustration of having to learn new acronyms all the time, but isn't this kind of like going to China and then complaining to the Chinese that they speak too much Mandarin?

    It all boils down to the standard ID 10 T User Error.

    I suggest that if you can find in your inner self the will to inflict violence on someone who is trying to victimize you, and can back up that iron will with all the force that you can muster, you will most likely be successful.
