    I like this. I think it is going to be a great asset.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    Ok, I've added the COM term, thanks.

    And I'd like to get an opinion on the Ammo Head Stamps. Should I just list them alphabetically with all the other terms or just create a page that lists all the Head Stamps together and it would be its own dropdown under the Resources tab?

    Might want to split them out for quicker reference.

    Question Sheeple

    Sheeple: recommended for non-demeaning inclusion into USA Carry's 'Glossary of Gun Related Terms'.
    SHEEPLE: Noun.
    Derived from 'sheep': mammal, food-supply/meat, sheepish, simple, flock, soft, followers, herd, domesticated, ad nauseum.
    Co-joined with: 'People': Humans, humanity, UNARMED & anti-gun anything.
    Meronym: individual, mortal, soul, etc.
    (Kind/accurate) Street colloquialisms: 'Chumps', 'push-overs', 'dumbos', 'suckers', 'targets', 'hits', 'Joe/Jill Public', 'Roll-overs', etc.
    For site usage: "Persons/adults who make up the majority of U.S. law-abiding citizens who assume 911 is their own personal security service offering instant responses 24/7. Ultra-anti-gun, pacifists with moral objections to the use of self-defense. Those who lack the courage to even attempt to prevent crime or danger from decending upon them, those they love or anything they own. Easy prey for any criminal and the first to cry foul when they become a statistic of violent or property crime."
    Proposed for USA Carry common usage:

    S: Shortsighted.
    H: Helpless.
    E: Elementary.
    E: Elusive.
    P: Patronizing.
    L: Lazy.
    E: Empty.

    If there are any better and less offensive ways to scrabble-up this word, please slap them up here for LUKEM's review and maybe inclusion into a word used VERY often amongst gun owners, CC-types, USA Carry patrons, military, LEO's and (BFD) me for the last 1/4 century!

    I've added the ammo head stamps to the Resources dropdown as its own page.

    I also added the Sheep term but with a less "in your face" definition but still getting the point across:
    Sheep - A group of people who lack the capacity for careful consideration, imagination, or individual thought, who thusly go with group and allow god awful trends and events to unfold and make us all miserable.

    New Term - "Mall Ninja"

    A term used in forums to mean an unexperienced and enthusiastic weapon(usually a firearm)owner who pretends to be a seasoned operator. The phrase came about as a result of an over the top character in a famous satirical thread.

    "A few well placed shots with a .22LR is a lot better than a bunch of solid misses with a .44 mag!" Glock Armorer, NRA Chief RSO, Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Muzzleloading Rifle, Muzzleloading Shotgun, and Home Firearm Safety Training Counselor

    I just converted the glossary over to a new module that looks and works better. You can also submit terms right into that module instead of posting them here.
