  • Acronyms

    I have wanted to ask for a while if we could post an acronym list here for some of the terms I sit and try to figure out, (IANAL, IMHO, etc). I just ran across one on the 1911 website and thought it might help not only myself but other new members. I don't know if we could do a Sticky with it but it might be helpful to all. It is not all encompasing but it's a start and could always be added to. Is this something we could use?
    I'll ask permission before posting it as it is rather large, and if granted permission will add it.
    Thanks

      Yes it is. I had plans on getting one until their prices recently jumped up a couple hundred dollars. It has all the features that I want in my next gun. CZ dropped a bunch of models this year and I heard limiting their run on these CCO Bobtails. I guess when I get all my pennies saved up I'll see the real price on them.

      There are three prices you pay on an item like this.
      1. The price you paid.
      2. The price you tell your wife you paid.
      3. The price you pay when your wife finds out how much you really paid.

        Jr:

        I'm not the final authority. Hell, I'm barely the first guy on the list to ask .... But go ahead and post it, and see what happens.

        'Bout the worst thing we can do is give Rich your address....

          Heres one I posted in another forum, (that I had grabbed from somewhere else originally and updated).. When you post yours, cross check them for anything that might be on one but not the other.. A lot of the firearm acronyms from these forums are in this list.

          http://www.uscca.us/forum/showpost.p...51&postcount=9

          If you're not a USCCA member let me know I can just post or PM the list so you can combine with the one you have.

            farslayer:

            They let Bruenor in there? :mrgreen:

            He's active on OFCC, so that list may be there, too....

            Nice guy, btw.... Met him at the Niles OFCC M&G last year.

            Good list, too!

              Actually I am bruenor, but for some reason that moniker was already taken when i registered here at Buckeye Firearms.. so I had to use my old online gaming handle of farslayer for this site. Otherwise I would keep forgetting my login when I came here..


              Farslayer => Buckeye Firearms & Appleseed
              Bruenor => OFCC & USCCA

              note: even though the name was already taken I've never seen a Bruenor post here

                We need a "who is Bruenor?" sticky too....

                :mrgreen:

                (Who would have registered "Bruenor"? Must mean something in Croatian or something.... )

                Smead: I did figure out how to make a sticky btw. If you haven't....

                    Bob:

                    Wanna see if you can find Bruenor's list again. Or is it Farslayer's?

                    I'll see if I can find the "burn Rich at the stake" button....

                    Then we'll remove the chaff and make this a sticky?

                      Was hoping Jr would beat me here with his list..

                      Heres the one I pinched form the Ohioans for concealed carry site, with a few corrections and additions.. just want to make it clear that I didn't originally create this list, credit where credit is due and all that.. What I liked was that many of the firearm/CCW related acronyms that I see being used in BFA, OFCC, and USCCA etc.. were in this list.

                      Do with it what you will.. and feel free to edit out my babbling, or move the relevant data to the first post and eliminate this one entirely.. you won't hurt my feelings

                        AE - action express

                        Anneal - To soften metal by heating. Used to extend the useful reloading life of brass cartridge case necks by softening them and permitting more reloading operations to be performed before the work hardening effect of the cold, forced reshaping of the resizing operation causes metal fatigue in the neck area and makes the brass case unusable for further reloading. Brass and copper are annealed by fast cooling, usually by quenching, from a heated condition. Steel is annealed by a slow cooling. Quenching of steel from high heat has the opposite effect from the same treatment of brass and copper.

                        Brisance (brissance) - the "shattering" effect of explosives; the burn rate, in terms of acceleration, i.e., how quickly is the maximum burn rate of an explosive mass reached?

                        BT - boattail (bullet design)

                        Bullet - the projectile which is expelled from a firearm's barrel at firing

                        Burn rate - the relative speed at which gun powders burn (explode) This is determined by the size and shape of granules,

                        amount and nature of any coatings and, in some cases, specific physical design of the granules, such as perforations, tubes, rods, ball (beads) or disk shapes (flattened beads).

                        Cal. - Caliber (inches or millimeters); projectile (bullet) diameter or diameter of some specifically defined point in the bore of a barrel; the nominal or approximate diameter of a bore expressed similarly. NOT the same as a cartridge chambering! Caliber is diameter only. .223 Remington is not a caliber. It is a chambering. The number .223 alone, however is understood to mean the .223 Remington, but literally is a caliber. There are several chamberings that use the .223 caliber of bullet or bore. .30-'06 is a chambering. It uses a .308 caliber bullet.

                        Cartridge - completed assembly, comprised of a case (the central component), primer (for ignition), powder (primary energy source) and bullet (projectile). The cartridge is placed into the chamber and confined by a breech device for firing.

                        Chambering - i.e., "This rifle is available in the following chamberings: …"; Specific machined dimensions to the interior rearmost portion of a barrel which results in a chamber that will accept and safely fire one cartridge design only, i.e., .30-'06 Springfield, .270 Winchester, .223 Remington, .38-55 Winchester-Ballard, .45-'70 Government, etc. Although acceptable chamber dimensions are defined and accepted throughout the firearms industry by the ANSI-approved SAAMI, there are many "wildcat" and "improved" variations of standard SAAMI chamberings in use.

                        Charge - quantity of powder; usually in grains. One avoirdupois pound equals 7,000 grains.

                        Choke - in a shotgun, the taper in the last few inches of the barrel. This is usually a tightening of the bore to a slightly smaller diameter from the actual gauge measurement of the barrel. Some typical choke names, from least to most taper, are: cylinder (no taper), improved cylinder (or simply: "improved"), modified cylinder ("modified") and full choke ("full"). This is not a complete list, but typical.

                        CONDITION 4 - Pistol: Full magazine separate from gun, chamber empty.

                        Components (reloading) - individual components that make up the "recipe" for a hand loaded cartridge. The four components are: primer, case, bullet and powder.

                        CRUISER READY - Shotgun: Full magazine, chamber empty, hammer down, safety off.

                        FN - There are several arms factories in different countries which use the initials "FN", standing roughly for National Factory. The best known FN is the Belgian arms manufacturer, Fabrique Nationale d'Armes d'Guerre or National Factory of War Arms, in Leige and Herstal, Belgium.FN was the developer of the Fusil Automatique Leger or Light Automatic Rifle, commonly called the FAL or FN-FAL. FALs are or have been the standard service rifle of a number of countries, including most of the British commonwealth, and were manufactured in several countries. Several semi-auto only versions are available on the U.S. market.Also: flat nose (bullet design)

                        FP - flat point (bullet design)

                        HBWC - hollow base wad cutter (bullet design)

                        Headspace - measurement between two points in a chamber which are the confining boundaries of cartridge movement during chambering and firing. Insufficient headspace hinders complete chambering of the cartridge. Excessive headspace permits case stretching and can permit case separation, which will permit high pressure gas leakage during the firing/pressure cycle. Very dangerous to equipment and shooter. Headspace is defined and measured differently for each case design. Rimless, rimmed and belted bottleneck cases each have a method unique to the design and a measurement specific to the chambering. Straight walled cases, rimless and rimmed, also have unique methods and cartridge-specific measurements.

                        Throat - leade, freebore. That portion of the barrel bore immediately forward of the chamber. In some rifle chamber designs, the throat may be long and may transition into a relatively slow taper to full depth of lands and grooves (rifling). In other rifle designs the throat is relatively short and the transition to full depth rifling is abrupt, although all barrels have some taper from throat to full depth rifling. The immediate effect of the two extremes in design is to determine the maximum distance a bullet may protrude out the front of the case. This determines the final overall length of the loaded cartridge, for a given bullet shape.
