I've not read that one Alpha, what does @%@$^&%@#$!%$^$ stand for?

Yes, LBP is long barreled pistol (mainly referring to .22 semis), but LBR is long barreled revolver (any caliber)

Also, just to let you know that if your reading in the GOM (grumpy old men) section; then the acronyms FFS, WTF and STFU have nothing to do with shooting razz
