    Gunspeak Acronym Thread

    I am amazed in the 3 years I've been gunning of all the gun related acronyms that get used on the forums. I'm not taking about weapon models like XD or TCP but ones like LGS, OEM, WWB and SA. Then, there are always the others like BTW and YMMV used alot in cyberspeak.

    I'm interested in gunspeak. Can you name a few more besides these?
    LGS
    OEM
    OAL
    SD
    SA
    HD
    WWB
    RO
    FTE
    FTF
    CCW
    CHP

    I understand the gun-related acronyms. What I don't get is the everyday stuff. So instead of typing "it is my considered opinion" folks think I should automatically know what IIMCO means.

    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."
