I see a lot of people on this site use a lot of initials. For example someone had a problem with their xd, and he used FTF to describe the problem i dont even know what he meant.

Can someone make a small list of initials and their meaning i know it a lot of work but would be appreciated.

The main ones you will see when referring to issues are the following:

FTF - Failure to Feed
FTE - Failure to Eject

Consider there are thousands. Throw some other ones out there and will be happy to oblige. Some deal with parts of the weapon and some pertain to behavior of said weapon, this makes compiling a list very extensive.

FTE Failure to Extract or Failure to Eject again depending on what the OP was posting.
