I've been seeing it all over this board and I can't figure out what it means, please enlighten me. My best guess is that it is an acronym that probably means something bad is happening or might happen in the future.

I'm not a native english speaker and asked the same question on another board. Here is the answer: SHTF means shit hits the fan. It is a term used to describe the time when the law enforcement agencies such as the ATF, police, FBI, United Nations, etc. attempt to confiscate the weapons guaranteed by the U.S constitution. Many feel this day is close at hand, and could possibly result in a "war like situation" Some U.S. citizens will not surrender their firearms willingly. When the day arrives a lot of people will lose their live because of the scared liberal politicians.

SHTF is TEOTWAWKI to a lesser degree.

And I always thought that SHTF meant someone had a big mess to clean up... Edited because my fingers are retarded today.

when one day you look into the sky to see a line making its way towrds you and it explodes in the air infecting us with smallpox, anthrax and Botulism; you will then know what SHTF means.

That is a very narrow definition. My definition is broader to include events like the American Revolution, the Civil War, the Holocost, ect.
