I've been watching a lot of discussions here in the general discussion, and im lost. You guys talk in codes.

So before i get too involved, I'd like to ask what are a few things I should look out for? A few do's and donts?

Thanks,

TigerEyes

IBTL = "in before the lock", as in I'm posting in this thread before a mod locks it. Usually a response to a board code violation.

Now you don't have to ask about that one, at least.

Welcome!

Yeah, right. I gotta call

Well, you just missed the big Chuck threads.
Read the sticky threads, they might answer a lot of questions before you ask them.
The Ammo Oracle is almost Holy Writ.
Army SEALs and the guy at the beef jerky table are not ballistic authorities.
There is no "d" in DrFrige.
Check out the Hometown Forums after the Wimmenz Forum. We've got a pretty strong TX contingent.
Watch for teh ghey airsofters.
l33t photoshop skillz and Wiggles = fun.
Finally, "Can ye smell it?"

9mm will just bounce off

the 1911 is the best weapon of any kind that will ever be invented.

I am not new to guns, the AR or the internet, but I love this board. I am always lurking and dammit I will join this weekend. and then post some pics of the guns and gear. You will learn to really like this place. But keep the fact you are a girl to yourself, otherwise folks will ask what color panties you are wearing and what not. So, what color where they again?

Remember there is always an exception to every rule. In this case both would be wrong because you just gored someones sacred cow of a caliber that was mentioned. Don't you know 10mm will kill anything.

No way. 6 pages, 14 "this thread is worthless without pics" comments, and then a lock.

You forgot the 7 "how you doin' " comments.

DON'T run around telling everyone you're a girl

DO post in the Woman Shooter Forum.

DON'T venture into Arfcom Chat unless you have a sense of humor, a thick skin, and a strong stomach.

DO kiss up to MrsGloftoe as much as possible.

DON'T ask Gabbasaurus Rex for advice about 'bikini' waxing.

DO learn to use BoardCode(tm).

DON'T feed the trolls.

DO learn the finer points of sammich making and pie serving.
