    Forum Gun Lingo

    Ok...Maybe this thread goes somewhere else if so move it, but being Im a dumb mountain redneck I sometimes try real hard to figure out some of the shortend abbreviated text lingo on this forum. So how bout we start a forum dictionary of text lingo. If you can think of one post it up. You know... some of these: SHTF- -hit hits the fan, FTE, FTFGCHSP
    Glock 22, 27 Gen 4
    Ruger SP101 .357mag
    S&W 637 Airweight
    Ruger Single Six
    Ruger Blackhawk Bisley 45 Colt
    Mossberg 835 Grand Slam

    FTF can also mean "fail to fire", depending on context.

    Better yet.

    Why not keep in mind that there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, and over 250,000 words in the English language.
    It is hard enough to communicate with 250,000 words. Using the 26 letters is just plain confusing.

    And, irritating.

    I used it on one today to find out what cbob was and it wasn't there.
    For a man interested only in passin' through, he suddenly found himself entangled in a deadly struggle….
