This is all great. Thank you very much.
I still do not know what a CBOB and a VBOB is
Commander Bobtail and Valor Bobtail...two Dan Wesson 1911 models

I'm sure you figured this out YEARS ago, but hey...better late than never, right? :D

Great thread thanks for the info.
What about the different manufacturers acronyms, for example Springfield Armory's;
XD
XDM
XDS
The "M" factor
etc....
Thanks
The "X" is for X-Treme Duty, the "M" is for the match grade barrel and match grade trigger.

The "S" is for the slimmer frame single-stack model, I believe.

Being a newer member myself, I found it sometimes difficult to fully understand what some posts intended due to the frequent use of abbreviations. Over the past few weeks I've compiled a list of common/not so common abbreviations used and I thought it would be a good idea to post them so that the new members to our forum could better orient themselves to the discussions.
I did my best to make the list comprehensive, but if I forgot any please feel free to chime in. * I know this has probably been covered somewhere before, but in quickly searching the forum, I didn't see a posting covering more that 2 or 3 at a time... so I apologize if this is redundant.

FTRB - failure to return to battery
FTE - failure to extract
FTF - failure to feed
FLGR - full-length guide rod
GIGR - GI style guide rod
MIM - metal injection molding
MSH - main spring housing
JHP - jacketed hollow point
FMJ - full metal jacket
FPS - firing pin safety/ ft. per second
IMHO - In my humble opinion
LNIB - like new in box
CCW - concealed carry weapon
GTG - good to go
CMI - cue me in
FWIW - for what it's worth
FA - full automatic
HD - home defense
BG - bad guy
LEO - Law enforcement officer
OP - original poster (of thread)
They would be more usefull in alphabetical order.

Effective Jan. 20,2021
NMP - Not my president.
Space after a comma is correct punctuation, and shows respect to the reader. So, effective Jan. 20, 2021, Joe Biden will be the
"POTUS", President Of The United States.
