YMMV = YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY (ex.. 2 vehicles of the same make and model may get different gas mileage) [;)]

I was really looking for those specific to firearms and primarily AR's. I was not familiar with SPR for one. I've figured out b/c/ch and others however new ones pop up now and then and I have to take a little time or read further before it becomes clear. Anyway, I appreciate the responses so far and if anyone comes up with any more related to our guns please post them.
