Matt & Greg from Otis Technology are here to help decipher some of the alphabet soup synonymous with with the gun industry. We share a unique language, chock-full of abbreviations and acronyms all about firearms. Understanding these shortened terms can be critical for safety, essential for range conversations, and confusing for all gun owners.
The NSSF revealed that at least 5.4 million people purchased a firearm for the first time in 2021 and that means a lot of new faces at the gun counter and at the range. Please be conscientious of your verbal shorthand because it can be perplexing, intimidating and overwhelming.

Otis Technology was born in 1985 when our founder, a 16-year-old Doreen Garrett, fell into cold mud while deer hunting with her father. The barrel of her grandfather’s Model 94 Winchester was full of mud and the day's hunt was over.
That day sparked the beginning of an endeavor to create a smarter solution to a problem every hunter, soldier, shooter, and firearm owner has encountered. On that day, Doreen had a vision for innovating gun care. That is where we began, in the mud, pulled down by our roots to reveal a tireless drive to create a quality product that will serve the men and women that depend on their firearms to feed their families and protect our country. Now, it is our uncompromising purpose and the big picture reason why we show up to work every day.
At Otis, our mission is to rethink and redefine gun care, giving gun owners better and smarter ways to keep their most cherished firearms in the best condition possible. That’s why our products are American-made and backed by a No-Nonsense Guarantee.
