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. :barf:

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.)

Gotta add:

IANAL = I am not a lawyer

Oh, and for my Vietnam brethren, we always mentioned:

BOHICA = Bend over, here it comes again.

Has anyone created the Excel (table) form of all these Abbrev's and definitions?

If not, I'll volunteer.

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.

ND - Negligent Discharge. Didn't see it listed but I've seen it used a lot and it took me a while to get that one.

Perhaps dialect ...

... plus lots of overlap in meaning since one is a sub-set of the other:

FTE: failure to eject
example: a stovepipe gets extracted but doesn't eject

FTX: " " extract
example: extractor slips of due to loss of tension or due to chamber too small for a cartridge
