You may want to add:

FFP   first focal plane         Rifle scope, the reticle and sight picture are on the same plane, therefore remain proportional so the reticle never covers more or less of the target using any an all magnification available as holdover/under never change with magnification!

SFP second focal plane      Rifle scope, the reticle and sight picture are in different planes, therefore they do not scale together so the reticle does not remain proportional  to the sight picture, except for only one calibrated magnification, typically 10x. The reticle is froze while the sight picture changes in size, causing the reticle to cover more or less of the target.

There you go (if you check the list, HONEST opinion is added. - The danger in using acronyms and abbreviations is the possibility of misinterpretation.

Thank you, Christopher, for you HONEST opinion.    Mike

I noticed that "AA" is in the list as AirGuns of Arizona. Airguns of Arizona uses "AOA" on their web page to represent "Airguns of Arizona".

"AA" I have seen represents "Air Arms" as in "Air Arms TX200 MkIII air rifle".

I have removed the REPLY that I had previously posted because it was perceived as inappropriate.

The list of acronyms and abbreviations can be quite long.

I have a few that I believe have not been listed.

POA = Point of Aim
BT = Bushy Tail (squirrel)
G-hog = Groundhog
ME = muzzle energy
BC = Ballistic Coefficient
"C-Rat" which was mentioned comes from "Country Rat" (possum) which you will see a lot in the Hunting Gate with furbearer season fast approaching.
Someone said Yellow Beak for Starlings, but we also abbreviate that sometimes to "YB".

We also have a lot of abbreviations for pellets such as:
CP = Crosman Premier
CPHP = Crosman Premier Hollow Point
CPH = Crosman Premier Heavy
SD = RWS Superdome
SHP = RWS Super Hollow Point
Kodies = Beeman Kodiaks
FTT = H&N Field Target Trophy
FTS = Field Target Special   
Preds = Predators (Polymags)

I am sure there are others that I can't think of right now.
