    As a new to the 1911 platform guy I love coming here and soaking up the knowledge and experiences of all of you. BUT - I do not understand all the abbreviations you people use. Please try to speak to the less informed, me, so I can understand your answers/opinions on subjects I want to learn.
    Thanks in advance, Frank.

    You mean you don't get that FSC helps your grip while the FCS looks bad on a 1911. Never mind SA ILS MSH isn't as bad as what most people make them out to be. Do you prefer the GI GS or the traditional BTGS? I like the later. Also a fan of ambi TS.

    :lol:

    Conversation vs Texting.

    I agree with this post and it's premise.
    I realize this is the texting generation and everything is condenced for speed; but a lot of us out here do not, will not or cannot keep up with the endless stream of abbreviations.

    Give one a break and type in full sentences so we all can enjoy the banter and learn and maybe even contribute.
    Some us older members (age not length of membership) would really appreciate it.:rolleyes2:

    Abbreviations

    BTW, look even I can do it at times. I went to the site (link to abbreviations used) which does not begin to answer ? concerning the abbreviations used here on a regular basis.

    Sorry to be a bit of an anacronym. I am around guns all the time and I am an enthusiast to say the least, but the degree that some sites are more texting rather than typing sites dismays me.

    Sorry, I'll shut up; but I can't be the only one feeling this way. Or can I?:frusty:

    What are these abbreviations used on a regular basis? I thought the thread linked covered all of them. If not, point out the ones you're having trouble with and I'm sure someone can add them to the list.

    For me, I am good. The link solved most of my questions and the additional post's have covered some I had never read. This is a great site and I am very glad I found it.
    Thanks for all your patience. Frank.
