    I've been meaning to get this done for months now, finally getting around to it :laugh:

    I'd love to hear your suggestions for entries into the glossary of terms, so please post them here.

    More acronyms.


    NFA - National Firearms Act
    BUIS - Back up iron sights.




    Simple internet acronyms maybe;

    btt - bump/back to top
    lol - laughing out loud
    FWIW - for what its worth
    YMMV - your mileage may vary
    IIRC - If I recall correctly
