Can you all help me out with definitions on some of these BTTs, bump, IMHO, etc...Come across ALOT of these and just want to know what I'm reading. If you can think of more plz add.

If I'm posting in the wrong area just advise and I'll move it over somewhere else.

My career in aviation has tons of acronyms but the ones I'm seeing on our Ruger forum are more text type shortcuts that I am not familiar with.

Thanks a bunch!

BBT = Back To Top
IMHO = In My Honest Opinion
IMO = In My Opinion
bump = simply making a post to bump the thread (usually a classifieds thread) to the top to get more looks/attention

I would think though that whereas this has ZERO to do with revolvers and this is the "revolvers" section it just might not be the right place. Hmmmm...maybe the lounge perhaps. You're excused this once. :)

Remember, it's the internet. type your query into any search engine and you'll get a LOT of results. ;)

Well now, I guess you're not SOL but it still comes under the BFD file, IMHO.

Ha...gotcha...

For me, IMHO, is In My Humble Opinion. No honesty here.......this is the internet.

For Flatgate, Humble is correct. For some others on here Holy would be more appropriate.
