Glossary

Postby Jeff Johnson » Sun 21 Dec 2008 11:35 am

A couple of forum members asked for a sticky thread to have definitions of terms and acronmyms that we use on the forum. That's a good idea, so I went to the old archived PDO glossary page to resurrect many of the definitions that used to be available there. I've also added some and will continue to do so as people ask for additions.

Glossary
  • +1
    I agree. Typically used in reference to a previous posting.

  • +P, +P+
    A cartridge loaded to higher-than-standard pressures for its caliber, to produce higher velocity; +P+ loadings are generally produced on special contracts for law enforcement agencies and are not always readily available to private citizens

  • 2A
    Second Amendment

  • 4 Rules of Gun Safety
    1) The gun is always loaded
    2) Never point the gun at something you don't want holes in
    3) Finger off the trigger until the sights are on the target
    4) Know your target and what is behind it

    Memorize these rules and follow them anytime you are near firearms. Then teach or remind those who do not follow them.

  • Accidental Discharge (AD)
    An unexpected and undesirable discharge of a firearm caused by circumstances beyond the control of the participant(s) such as a mechanical failure or parts breakage. There are very, very few firearms related "accidents" and if the "4 Rules" are followed there will hopefully be no injury. See Negligent Discharge.

  • ACP
    Automatic Colt Pistol

  • Action
    The working mechanism of a firearm. Various types exist, including single-shots, multi-barrels, revolvers, slide- or pump-actions, lever-actions, bolt-actions, semi-automatics and automatics.

Such term does not include shotgun shot required by... game regulations for hunting purposes, a frangible projectile designed for target shooting, a projectile which the Secretary finds is primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes, or any other projectile or projectile core which the Secretary finds is intended to be used for industrial purposes, including a charge used in an oil and gas well perforating device."

  • Automatic Pistol
    A term used often to describe what is actually a semi-automatic pistol. It is, technically, a misnomer but a near-century of use has legitimized it, and its use confuses only the novice.

The five-day waiting period has now been replaced with an instant check system, which can be extended to three days when the results of the check are not clear.

A new member used a term I hadn't seen before, so I updated the OP to add the following:

Added another one, since it seems to be in use in the forum:
  • EDC
    Every Day Carry. Can apply not only to guns, but to other items that one can carry every day.

+1
IMHO this will help a ton. My being a NOOB and all, it cleared up some confusion for me already. I'm glad I found UCC, I have learned a great deal in the short time I've been on here. I now OC and CC, where before I thought I had to CC with my CFP. I'm happy to be a MWAG. Just remember that IANAL.

J/K. No really all kidding aside, great job. This helps.
