I think "Bling" means that a weapon has been "Pimped out"..If you know what I mean. Not sure about IHBT but IBTL means in before the lock. Oh ya IBTL [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=118&t=166095[/url]..[:D]

The original source of the expression "Bling-Bling" comes from pop culture and is making forays into many other usages, like it or not. The original expression was used to refer to a rapper or pop star's collection of gaudy jewely and precious metals they wore in public, as in "some one stole my Bling-bling". It has since come to mean anything extravagant, gaudy or excessive in terms of accessories for pretty much anything. It irritates many, but vernacular sometimes has a life of its own, like it or not! Personally, I find it amusing when applied to firearms.

Bling Bling while refering to the jewelery that rappers where wearing also refers to the sound that the big pieces make hitting each other. Kind of like a wind chime.

bling bling-unnecessary crap added with the intention of making something/one look cool. Like Ti bolt carriers, or firing pins.

IHBT-I Have Been Trolled according to acronym finder. I suspect it could easily be Told as well.

Actually, "bling" refers to the chime sound made by an older cash register. Meaning money has been spent. CJ

The cash register is "ching-ching". _DR got the "bling-bling" right.

Trying to say that a cash register goes 'ching ching' or 'bling bling' is like asking if a dog goes 'bark bark' or 'woof woof'. When dealing with non-vocalized sounds, it's a matter of INTERPRETATION, and varies according to who's doing the interpretation. My definition of 'bling' is more in line with the definition you'll find in an online search. CJ

isnt it cha ching?

Guys the "bling" in "bling-bling" comes from the light "blinging" off of the "ice" or diamonds in ones jewelry. And my interpretation of "bling-bling" on an AR was the chrome/nickel/Ti pieces, like those on the Bushy 25th anni. edition. I'd hardly consider a EO/M2, w/ a rail, and aSF light "bling-bling"
