Abreviations

While not new to carrying a weapon I am fairly new on the USCCA. i was wondering is there any place I can go to get he meaning of the abreviations that are used on here. Some I am familiar with and others leave me shaking my head a bit.

Might be easier if you listed the ones you don’t know.

No, there is not a source here on the USCCA, but you can always just ask. Are you referring to texting acronyms or firearm-related acronyms, or both? If you have a list of a few, we could probably help you with those to start.

While not an outright listing of acronyms, the USCCA website has a terminology page at Firearms & Self-Defense Terminology Guide | USCCA Resources

… and the phone app has a glossary which contains many.

Hope this helps

Very helpful, disappointing Gun Broker thinks AR stands for Assault Rifle. :-1:

Unfortunately that misunderstanding has been perpetuated by many pro gun folks so it is understandable why many anti gun and hoplophobic folks don’t understand the difference either.

Thanks everyone and I hav found some of what I needed but not all and will just ask in the future. The USCCA site was the best and Gun Broker actually had very little not that it didn’t help but evidently they use one and USCCA users use another altogether so thanks.
