A couple of others;

Turning Turtle - comes from a sci fi story where folks dug DEEP bunkers, went into them and never came out. Entire point being they'd pulled their heads in like a turtle and stayed put!

 

CQB - close quarters battle. Close range, usually within 50 yards or so, often within a structure like a house.

 

Rifleman's quarter mile - 500 yards http://www.lewrockwell.com/buppert/buppert14.html

 

Appleseed - A movement to renew the spirit of riflemen into America. Low cost (free for ladies and kids) weekend training sessions to get folks able to hit a man size target at a "rifleman's quarter mile".

EMP - Electro Magnetic Pulse. An effect of rapid movements in the shape of the earth's magnetic field caused by CME's or nuclear explosions. Destroys unprotected electronics, the more modern they are the more susceptible to EMP.

I'm adding as I use so here's another

SCOTUS - Supreme Court of The United States

 

BATFE - Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. Used to be ATF.

 

cammies - camouflage clothing or gear

 

Mall Ninja - some clown who thinks wearing cammies while shopping in the local mall, who may (or may not) own a "Rambo" knife, and probably owns an M4gery tricked out with all the gear makes him the Rambo character as seen on TV. No training or skills, in fact very little actual shooing practice, but a legend in his own mind. All hat and no cows.

 

Rambo anything - something big and bad ass looking that may be unsuitable for the task at hand. Knives are a prime example. A Rambo knife is likely to get you jailed if you ever use it (designed to be a man killer don't you know) and is too small to be a good machete and too large for most every thing else. Unless you are really skilled with it, it is also too heavy and awkward to be used as a fighting blade.

 

https://www.google.com/search?q=rambo+knives&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=Xl8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&prmd=imvns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=KlrWTqPrG8SKsQKt5O2EDw&ved=0CFwQsAQ&biw=1609&bih=651

 

M4gery - M4 Forgery; rifles that look like M16/M4 carbines but really aren't. Most AR pattern rifles are NOT built to military specs; they just look like it. Fun to shoot but don't think that even your Colt AR platform is built to the same specs as the M4 - Not saying better or worse, just different. Some are very good, some are junk.

 

All hat and no cows - OK, this comes from Texas, I've used it so I'll include it. Similar to mall ninja from an earlier time. Implies the person being talked about has the dress of a cattleman but not of the skills or savvy. He's (like mall ninjas, almost always male) got the boots, jeans, shirt and BIG hat but he can recognize a cow only with done medium rare with a baked potato on the side.

 

cover - a obstacle between you and a shooter that will stop a bullet. Usually, but not always - bullet resistance glass, also provides concealment.

 

concealment - something that hides you from a potential BG. Will NOT stop a bullet. A wooden wall is concealment but is very likely NOT cover to a 30 caliber round.

 

Advanced Combat Optical Gunsights (abbreviated ACOG) - optical sight, low or no magnification in the optics but provides for rapid target acquisition.

add cover concealment ACOG

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
