    Lately I've been receiving PM's asking about the meaning of various terms, so I've been working on the NWFA Glossary. It's live now, but it's very small. I'd like everyone to take a look at it and suggest terms you think should be in there. Eventually I'll go back and explain and/or elaborate on many of the terms, but right now I just want to build the list.

    It can be found by clicking "NWFA Resources" up top, then "Glossary of Terms", or by clicking here http://www.northwestfirearms.com/forum/glossary.php

    Nice job! Perhaps a quick link on the main forum page so people know it's there? Once this thread gets past page 1, or if people never look in here they may miss it.
