    1. I read people talking about SHTF ("stuff" hitting the fan) situations, but I have yet to read about TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it), especially when browsing the Survival & Sustenance Living forum. Is this forum just more about bad situations than complete meltdowns? Or have I just not been around here long enough to read about them?

    2. I've been reading about time references, like 1 o'clock, etc. Is this like a reference to one's belt, and where you carry your weapon?

    3. What does DAO stand for?

    4. BG stand for "bad guy"?

    5. Does Condition 1 mean carrying with a round in the chamber?

    6. I've heard some about "mall ninjas" here. I looked it up, and it seems to me they're men between the ages of 17-25 who hang out at the mall wearing their tactical gear while sporting delusions of granduer (the Dale Gribble type). Is this all it means? It may have been a while since my last trip to the mall, but I've never seen anyone matching this description.

    7. I have a question to post to the Legal & Politics forum, but I'm not allowed to. There are other forums whose threads I can't even read. Is the requirement 25 posts and/or 30 days experience? I've read some posts about this, but couldn't find anything final or definitive.

    I'm sure I'll have more questions in the future. Thanks for responding.

    1. This is a firearms forum - not anything else.

    2. You got it. Noon is your buckle, 3 o'clock would be exactly over the right hip.

    3. Double action only.

    4. Yup

    5. In a 1911 it means round in the chamber, cocked, and safety on.

    6. Yup, it is slang for the uber-tacticool types that run around in cammies pretending they're Delta force.

    7. The minimum post requirement prevents troll infestations. Lots of folks like to stir up trouble in the L&P section.

    I know this, but I've read a lot about SHTF and BOB's and all. Is TEOTWAWKI not related?

    Is it 25 posts? I just want to know how long I've got to wait to post my question. It's like 95% legal and 5% political, and I think that would be the best forum to post. It's got to do with "molon labe", the term everyone loves and keeps in their signatures and avatars. I don't want to be one of those troublemakers who only posts in the Legal & Political forum and who starts fights. I honestly want users' opinions on a question I have.
