Like the above posts - It refers to guns that are not on the banned list - Thus Off List Lower -

I wondered the same thing CaliKicks. I searched on this boards search engine but it didnt come up with anything so I googled it. After rewording it a few times i finally figured it out.

it also is used (eroniously) to mean any Off List weapon that skirts the "by name" aspect of the orig AWB.

That Calguns search doesn't work for the searchee is just as frustrating to the people who have to answer the same questions repeatedly.

That, and the lack of clear layout to good information, are the two biggest issues with Calguns. Stickies are poorly done here.

Oh believe me, i know. I'm on quite a few forums and moderate on a couple so i know how it is to deal with nOobs, which is why i googled the question when i was wondering what it was. However, if a person gets annoyed witht the same question then they can simply not click on the thread titled "WHAT IN THE WORLD DOES OLL MEAN?" because i'm pretty sure that they would have a general idea of what the thread is about. **(the hint is in the title)** So if it bugs them soooo much, they should just scroll on by and let someone else, who doesn't get annoyed by the question, answer it. :thumbsup:

Hmm. Let's drag this over to the Suggestions forum and discuss more fully. New thread in a few seconds ... See Use of stickies? Layout? (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=187439)

+1, Sometimes you guys are very hard on new people for not using the search button, whats the big deal, you still replyed to him and it took the same amount of effort. Some people on here really need to chill out and be a little nice to newbs! How is calguns gonna get bigger if everybody just critisizes and complains.

Wow - surprised nobody commented on its transformation into "OLR" - it started with lowers as it started with ARs, but that quite rightly burst from the chrysalis of goodness, evolving into a wider spectrum of blackness, thus now OLR is better suited for the nomenclature.

OLR = Off List Receiver. :)

Yes I do remember, but I also try to find the info I need on my own. I'll never ask until i've exhausted all possible resources. I will help anybody and everybody I possibly can, but one has to be willing to put forth some effort.

Ahh yes, I don't really remember that movie too much. I've done quite a bit of self medicating through the years, but not in 2 1/2 years. My baby girl is gonna want to see all those movies.

it does confuse that it's often applied to guns without lowers. AND new residents from other states are just beginning to comprehend all our various "lists".

That, and the lack of clear layout to good information, are the two biggest issues with Calguns.

I disagree with that. You have to make an attempt to find it before you start ragging on the site. If you go to http://www.calguns.net on the very front of the website is a box with links and the first link is "OLL FAQ" how much easier can it get? It's plain as day. It can't get any clearer It doesnt seem like one of the "biggest" calguns issues to me.

EDIT:
I know there is information to be updated. I'm just glad the calguns management can run the website and I can learn myself how to keep my rifles up to date and legal. I don't worry if this weeks court case is incorporated into all the web pages on the same day. I see the the staff working on all different kinds of projects. It appears to be an excellent cause to be associated with. I learn new things here all the time. I'm sure they will update their website information as time allows. It can get legally complicated. This whole parade is much more than a full time job. It's awesome to be able to ask questions on this board, and get good answers and direction.

UCLA I read your how to build an AR thread, it looked pretty good. You could add the banned list to it for convenience. You could write up a new OLL FAQ too I'm sure. Then it would be updated out in the front of the calguns website. I would read it. :)

uhhh

I'm pretty sure we're talking about two different things. The OLL FAQ on the opening page is phenomenally out of date, it lacks a ton of important info, and is only scraping the very beginning of things.

Most people never even see the front page, as they come directly to the forums.

Attempt to find it before ragging on the site? LOL. Yes, you're right. I should really familiarize with Calguns before I start talking. I'd forgotten where I was. I'm new.

put in google or yahoo "oll rifles" or "oll firearms" and you'll get there in a few clicks. yes, calguns doesn't have search for anything less than 3 characters. hence i think i asked one time what wildstring could i use to complete it for 4. but i don't think i found out.
