In a car you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV.Go to the category that applies to your thread topic, and once there, look for Forum tools near the top right of the list of threads.

I was re reading through this thread and I didnt see it, maybe I missed it

I didnt see

EDC= every day carry

Someone had mentioned at one time to compile it all into one sticky

My idea is to have a moderator to update it as needed as well

Sounds like a great idea

I'm not "sir", but since almost a full day has gone by and no one else has answered your questions, I'll give them a shot.

"Bump" is most commonly used in the Want to Buy or Want to Sell section. Many times someone will list something for sale and days will go by with no response to the original post. Then the original poster (or possibly someone else) will "bump" it back to the top of the thread listings, by entering a "bump" post....or BTT (back to top)......or something similar. This is done to keep the thread at the top of the listings, thinking it will get more exposure.

"Thread hijacking" is when someone enters a post in an existing thread which introduces a new topic other than the once the original poster (OP) started, or which takes the thread in a new direction. For example, a few days ago I started a thread about "expected life of an extractor". If someone had posted to that thread, "well, what's the expected life of a sear?", that would be thread hijacking. If it's a different subject, start a new thread.

I have seen the abbreviation WWB in reference to ammo. I assume that means Winchester white box. The Winchester USA "generic" looking ammo. Is this correct? I did not spot it in all the postings of the many abbreviations used here . I usually am able to add up the point of the posts and context the abbreviations are used and get the point but the reference postings are very helpful to remove any doubt. Thanks

This thread hasn't been alive for a while but I'll throw in a suggestion that I have used on some of the other forms I visit.
If you use an abbreviation in a post, it would be nice if the first time you would spell it out followed by the abbreviation in parenthesis. ie:
Full metal Jacket (FMJ)

AR - assault rifle! ..........I cannot believe my eyes, AR does not stand for assault rifle! It stands for Armalite Rifle.

No wonder our libtard friends use this, we do on a gun forum.

BUMP originally stood for Back Up [to the] Main Page because adding a new post to an existing thread moves it to Page 1 when some clicks on "New Posts".

Fascinating, but true nonetheless.

It's been mentioned a couple of times, but I wish there were two different acronyms for "Failure to Fire" and "Failure to Feed." When I see someone write that they had a FTF, it always makes me wonder which one they meant...unless they have some accompanying information, like "I had several FTFs, but I ran the ammo back through and they all ignited the second time." By that, I assume the poster meant "Failure to Fire."

Maybe FTF = Failure to Fire, while a failure to have the round enter the chamber would be either FTC (failure to chamber) or FTL (failure to load.)

This is way too much to remember, lol. I'd suggest the lists be complied to eliminate duplications, then dissected to each section of the forum that it applies to. Then it needs to be a sticky.

I just put it all in excel, but excel isn't supported as an upload, so will upload as txt file. I did remove the duplicates.
