What is IBTL?

I saw this on the post about national park carry.
"The right to keep and bear arms is rooted in both self-defense and insurance against government’s propensity toward tyranny. The right pre-existed the Constitution. Thus, the Second Amendment is not its source. The right to keep and bear arms is natural and inalienable; the Second Amendment protects it, and Congress has no legitimate power to restrict it." - Senator John Cornyn (R., Tex.), as reported in the National Review on July 4, 2016

Both definitions are acceptable.
Ignorant or Stupid, I'm not sure which is worse. If someone were stupid, at least they'd have an excuse for all the dumb things they say.

Pass the Peace Pipe I need another hit

IANAL and neither are most people on this board, its just shows more with some than others.

I didn't see:

DA- Double Action
SA- Single Action
BUG- Back up gun
BTT- Bump the thread

Also:
JAIB- Just another industry bailout
BIODTL- Beat it on down the line
BILARM- Beat it like a rented mule

Are there any for firearms manufacturers along the lines of Ford> Found on road dead?

BTT also means Back To Top (refers to getting your thread back to the top of the list, in For Sale forums).

TTT = To The Top

SPF= Sold Pending Funds

CONUS = Continental US (for shipping/postage issues)

BUIS = Back-Up Iron Sights

FRN = Federal Reserve Notes (Derogatory slang for US Dollars)

TEOTWAWKI = The End Of The World As We Know It

FB = Feedback

.40 S&W = 40 Slow & Weak aka 10mm Special :lol:
