    Abbreviation thread

    We should have an abbreviation thread for reference (possibly posted as a sticky, somewhere where it could be easily found). I for the life of me can't finad anything like this. Especially for new members and what all that alphabet soup means. I've been on this forum for a while and at times still don't know what a lot of the abbreviations mean. I'll post what I know off hand for the new people. Maybe a mod or admin can put them all in one place for quick reference.

    LEO = Law Enforcement Officer
    BG = Bad guy
    GG = Good Guy
    LTCF = Licence to carry firearms
    CCL = Concealed carry licence
    CCW = Concealed carry weapon
    IMHO = In my humble opinion
    CC = Concealed carry
    IWB = Inner waste band (holster)
    OWB = Outer waste band (holster)

    Go check in the Forum Help & Extras up top ....

    I think the acronyms are fairly complete ... let me know if there are many missing and I'll add more - no time to check right now.

    Not sure it's worth adding but in WA we aren't licensed to carry weapons, only pistols (stupid but true)

    CPL - Concealed Pistol License

    Same here in VA, handgun permit (To carry concealed, open carry no licenses required) No weapons, handguns only
