Thank goodness!!! Iíve found the decoder ring. Someone needs to add all the abbreviations for the forms of carrying; those still get mixed up in my mind at times.

IANAL- I am not a lawyer...

Usually stated before a poster gives "advise" or their opinion on a legal matter.

Can anyone explain what is meant by the term "BBQ Gun"?
I've searched, but can't figure it out.

BBQ Gun=tastefully fancy pistol. Something to wear with pride at a gathering where open carry is the rule.

Historical examples might include a engraved, bright nickel Smith and Wesson revolver in a floral carved Sam Meyers belt/holster rig.

If you look for posts by greyson, you'll find acouple BBQ-grade 1911s,

There various grades of BBQ guns.
The top of the heap are those that would be worn/carried at the Govenor's BBQ. Fancier engraving, ivory stocks, not limited to S&W revolvers; blued Single Action Armies, with silver or gold chased full engraving, blued or silver plated 1911s, fully engraved with silver and/or gold chasing. The ivory stocks should be scrimshawed with a tasteful design. The belt and holster can be made of exotic leather, such as elephant or shark.

The step down is the BBQ gun and holster rig describer by the previous poster. This would be worn to a Mayor's, Chief of Police's or Sheriff's BBQ.

The bottom tier is a pistol with mininum engraving, exotic wood stocks and a plain River belt with a Threepersons' holster. These guns would be carried at lesser important people's BBQs.

All Riiver or Ranger belts should have silver belt buckles and belt loops, to be totally into the BBQ gun thing they should be engraved to match the gun carried.

What does "EDC" stand for? I understand what it means...I think...a gun that you carry off-duty or concealed, right? I know a BUG is a back-up gun, so is the EDC the primary carry gun as a civilian or off-duty LEO?

I'm sure glad you asked that. I see the term in a lot of posts, and although from the context it's used in, one can assume it pertains to a CC weapon. But, I've not been able to find exactly what it stands for.

I was reading a thread here in a different section, and the poster made reference to his "every day carry" gun...so, I said "AH HA! EDC = Every Day Carry!" (Well, actually, I just thought it...and then came here and typed it.)

Just curious, what's the difference between a Member and a Senior Member? And please don't tell me age. I'm turning 60 in September, God help me.
