Can any one direct me to a location where the anacronisms (FFL etc.) might exist on this site. By the way new to CalGuns and am so thankful for this site and all the great information.
God bless :thumbsup:

ummm.... those are ACRONYMS
anachronisms are things that are out of place or order, chronologically, like a semi-auto pistol found during an archaeological dig of an 18th-century native american village.

Anacromisms? Perhaps "anachromism"? My Oxford American Dictionary defines it thusly: 1.) a mistake in placing something into a particular historical period, 2.) the thing wrongly placed, and 3.) a person, custom, or idea regarded as being out of date.
