    I'm new to OpenCarry but have been a VCDL member for several years. Started reading the threads and have come across what I assume is an abbreviation or acronymbut haven't figured out what it is.

    Here are a few more common acronyms that you will see on these forums:
    CC = Concealed Carry
    OC = Open Carry
    OWB = Outside the waistband (holster)
    IWB = Inside the waistband (holster)
    BUG = Back Up Gun
    AW = Assault Weapon
    MG = Machine Gun

    The following refer to concealed handgun permits, some prefer one acronym over the others and some are technically more correct depending on the laws of the State being discussed (i.e. CCW is incorrect for VA because we issue a concealed HANDGUN permit, not a WEAPONS permit):
    CHP = Concealed Handgun Permit
    CHL = Concealed Handgun License
    CCW = Concealed Carry Weapons (permit)

    Other terms:
    PR = Peoples Republic (used to refer to an anti-gun state: PRMD = Peoples Republic of Maryland)
    NOVA = Northern Virginia
    2A = 2nd Amendment
    NP = National Park
    NF = National Forest
    BTW = By The Way
    IMO = In My Opinion
    IMHO = In My Humble Opinion

    Organizations:
    NRA = National Rifle Association
    VCDL = Virginia’s Citizen Defense League
    PDO = Packing Dot Org (packing.org)
    OCDO = Open Carry Dot Org (opencarry.org)

    That is all I can think of right off. Maybe some others can help me out with any acronyms I have forgotten. BTW LargeSarge, welcome to OCDO! –TEX1N

    Most of my favorite acronyms end with an 'F', so I will refrain from listing them
