yes it was :lolhammer:
NiB = New In Box
If the point is to help people identify terms rather than be an exhaustive name/term list, then terms without other info should be removed. E.g. what's the difference between a Pila GL2 and GL3?
Some medical terms, perhaps too specific for OP inclusion
GSW = Gunshot Wound
FAK = First Aid Kit
EMT-B/I/P = Emergency Medical Technician Basic/Intermediate/Paramedic
MI = Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
ASA = drug commonly known as Aspirin, which is itself a trademark
Durapore = Flexible cloth-backed tape by 3M/Nexcare
Transpore = Translucent plastic-backed tape by 3m/Nexcare
Kerlix = gauze roll
Pri-Med Gauze = Vacuum-packed gauze roll
There's a lot more, but these come to mind :shrug:
Isn't it more common to use "CCW". I have never seen nor heard "CHL" used.
Thank you for building the acronym list. Now communicating is so much faster and easier. This is my first post on this outstanding knife site. Good job, Robert in the Hill Country of Texas :roof:
Welcome to EDCF! Whereabouts in the Hill Country, my old stomping grounds!
First post on the forum,
Why not contribute something usefull
The steelguide link of AG russel knives isn't working. The proper link is:
Link has been updated! Thanks, and welcome to the forum!
hey guys how come nobody has put like OMG. I mean seriously oh my god is like a total classic! :lolhammer:
I understand everything on this thread, with the exception of one! What does EDC mean?
Seriously? It's even the title of our forum.... Every Day Carry.
I was joking.
At the risk of revealing my ignorance, can I ask what a SBK is? I think it's weapon related but am not quite sure. :shrug:
From some Web searching, I believe it can refer to a type of switchblade knife, the swing blade knife, which opens from the side, versus the OTF, or out the front switchblade knife, but it is also, I believe, a reference to a knife made of a saw blade, as well as a serrated blade knife. A multitasking acronym.
Some useful links I've used when trying to track down what some obscure acronym means.
militarywords.com - Enter an acronym, get what it means
AcronymFinder.com - Same as above, with some different/additional acronyms in the database.
Acronymdb - The acronym database
Acronyma - The largest database of acronyms on the web...self proclaimed, ymmv
Military Acronyms - Click a letter, get a list of military acronyms.
Joint Acronyms and Abbreviations - Same as above, with official DOD acronyms (Joint Doctrine Division).
MILITARY ABBREVIATION AND ACRONYM LIST - Another alphabetical listing of acronyms. Navy-centric.
Here's a couple:
IKYN - "I kid you not"
FWIW - "For what its worth"
Didn't see it so thought I'd add it
MSOP=Mini Small Outline Package
Two annotations I've seen cause communication problems, that I couldn't find on the list:
[sic] - Latin ~ As it were. Used when quoting, or otherwise intentionally putting something one knows to be grammatically or otherwise incorrect into writing.
(SP) or (SP?) - Spelling? Used when one questions the spelling of something they've posted. I.E. "I freaquently(sp?) misspell(sp) things."
Note: If something is intentionally mispelled, i.e. "Nemisses" [sic] should be used rather than (sp)
Wow its a one stop shop! Thanks for the thread!
