    Definitions for the newbies.

    I'm new to concealed carry. I found this forum and btw, love it. I have one problem,,,,I do not know what all these abbreviations stand for. I've looked up and down this forum to try and find a "this forum for dummies" topic and haven't found one. Just wondering if someone, everyone found help me out. I.E. AD - accidental discharge. (That one was pretty basic). :)

    Greetings and welcome from the Space Coast in Central Florida. I haven't found a good list of acronyms here but there was a good one on the ohio forum on another website...I'll see if I can find it.

    Regarding post count, posts in Off Topic/Humor do not count toward post count.

    Postings in "off topic and humor" do not count.
