    I have found abbreviations and acronyms used byposters very difficult to understand, and wish there was a place on this forum to learn the lingo so some of the mystery can be avoided. I was involved in a SD shooting and in the near futurewish totell of my situation in hopes that some will benefit from my experience.

    Yeeehaaaa! :celebrate LOL I'm a Postal guy (as in going!) LSM is a letter sorting machine, but Maoist works well... Legba has a clue to what confusing terms I had in mind, and it won't take me long to get up to speed. Thanks for the thread, I'll check it out. I am on my second CCP, wife on first, have been enlarging stones and OCing some! Definately want to get my story straight for when LEO eventually stops me and asksWTHAY doing! This'll be fun!

    Some can also have more than one meaning. FTF can also mean "face to face", as in "Ed, I'll meet you FTF in the Walmart parking lot and we'll do that trade."
