Scot Laughlin's Custom All Weather 2260

2260 with short crosman receiver atop a mini riser made from aluminum tube. Barrel is a 2200 soda straw
tensioned inside a titanium golf club shaft. Three screw mod to the trigger, bulk co2, SSP 250 rear cocking
striker assembly. Factory stock, reshaped, bedliner finish and stick on cheek piece. The idea was a weather
resistant light hunter for rainy days.
I've got a Cothran stainless receiver and gas tube waiting for me to get back to this one.

Response to oh sure....

Okay, well I can't really describe the problem any better than I have already -

"Overall in writing for the public it's customary when using abbreviations to first go to the trouble of writing out the abbreviated term one time, followed by the abbreviation in brackets or vice versa. That way everybody is on the same page and all viewers may participate in the understanding of text. That way a person can immediately understand meaning. At the very least some generalized hint of meaning is given."

As for examples, most of the forum threads are full of numerous abbreviations, maybe a dozen or more per thread, sometimes more, sometimes less. The point isn't a question of where can I find a handy dandy list of abbreviation descriptions to refer to, as I already explained: that's a colossal pain in the butt stock to have to chase down intepretaions several times per thread.

I was simply asking for polite consideration of others who aren't in on the secret code. I tried to ask as politely and respectfully as possible, and I think I succeeded in that. Apparently from the replies posted nobody is interested in assisting, so I guess that tells me the answer.

Thanks, guys, enjoy yourselves here. Unfortunately, I can't.
