    What about a link to a page with the abbreviations and acronyms used on this site? I think I have MOM and the Joey Keychain figured out but would be nice if there was a definitive guide.

    Regards,

    We have one, IIRC. But ATM, I'm not sure where it is.

    Really, there is a thread somewhere, but I can't find it either.

    Mom is the factory...it really is mom, as in, the one that gives birth. Some people think it's an acronym, but it's not.

    Thingmeister made an aluminum mag catch to allow the use of 1911 mags in the JHP or 4595

    The Joey Keychain is an aluminum or plastic trigger for basically any Hi Point.

    Thanks for the welcome. :)

    I hate being a pain and its frustrating on another board I'm on which has a chat room. Every 30 minutes there is someone new asking the same question. Not a "Get off my yard" mentality; but it gets repetitious.

    It'll be educational for me and earn me some creed here for creating/maintaining a 'dictionary'.
    The H&R HandiForum's monster FAQ was my creation. Cannot take credit for the work that others did in adding to it, but it is a great resource for them and their HandiRifles.
    Hope I can contribute here like I did there. :cool:

    Glad you noticed my "tongue in cheekiness" lol!

    That would be a good contribution, cuz if Ajole can't find it, it must not exist!
