    I would appreciate any intelligence on the meaning of all the various letters that are attached to and sometime swallow OC (open carry). What, for instance, does UOC mean? Universal, unintentional, unaware, or what? Is there a thread/link to a glossary of these acronyms?

    Thank you in advance from the timid (OC virgin), fat Bull Frog.

    Some more you're likely to see:

    PC = Penal Code

    LUCC = Locked Unloaded Concealed Carry (aka "poor man's CCW")

    AFAIK = As Far As I Know

    IIRC = If I Remember Correctly


    That's all i can think of for now... but I'm sure there are more.

    This is a great list.
    My favorite is this:
    CRPA = Certified Royal Pain in the A--
    Until now I assumed CRPA was California Rifle and Pistol Association, but who am I to contradict someone else's editorial comment.



    P.S. Flintlock Tom is a CRPA member. (by either definition)

    In forums it means "Edit to add".
