SHTF, BOB, TEOTWAWKI… Whether you embrace the shorthand or not, the fact remains that there is a lot of it out there. It has almost evolved into an exclusive language where you can hold a whole conversation without using layman’s terms. I’m pretty used to this myself, there were plenty of TLAs (Three letter acronyms) in the military to get up to speed on fast. While the prepping acronyms may be annoying to the newcomer, you have to admit that it does speed up the dialogue, if only a little. Some of them do seem like they are long acronyms just to be long, like TEOTWAWKI. Even still, it pays to be on the side that knows what it means rather than the side that doesn’t.

The article below breaks down 50+ acronyms used in the prepping community. Feel free to add more to the list by commenting or joining the discussion on Facebook. Check out the common survival acronyms here:
