Thread: Acronyms

  1. #1


    I have been hanging out for about a month now and I am still seeing alot of posts that use acronyms, which is fine but it would be nice for a newbie to guns (like me) to have a point of reference for them somewhere on the forum.

    The one I have discovered today was SOB. I know what it stands for in real life but here it doesn't make sense.

    The ones I have figured out so far are.
    CC=concealed carry
    OC=Open Carry
    IWB = In waist band
    OWB=Out of waist band

    Just saw DADT. Heck if I could figure it out. Google= Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

    Sometimes I think these acronyms are dumb. Spell it out.

    Today, I used the RMI in my HSI to track an NDB with DME so I could intercept an ILS-LOC to avoid having to use the VOR-A into KYIP because I dont like the way my RNAV(GPS) CDI looks.

    Oh wait........gun acronyms...right.....

    To be serious, SOB (small of back) carry is hazardous. It opens you to the risk of fracturing vertebrae/ slipping a disk if you were to fall flat on your back.

    And if you fell on your side with a side carry holster you could crack your hip bone,ribs and etc.

    Your pelvis is just a little more resilliant than your back when it comes to shearing forces.

    Carry however you want. That's just the they're behind why SOB is bad.
