Back in my LEO days riding patrol, we considered a BUG to be a secondary weapon that you could still continue a serious gunfight with. Pocket pieces like derringers, NAA mini-revolvers, palm sized auto's, etc. were called "GOMF's". Stood for "Get Outta My Face!" cause that's what they were designed for. Some guys put in an extra "F".

Beers y'all,
Ken

whats MOA ?
Minute of angle. Used to describe the accuracy of firearms, typically rifles, but possible for handguns as well, though it's not as applicable, since it's use is designed to describe accuracy over a range of distance.

Loosely converted to a more familiar measurement, one minute of angle is roughly 1" at 100 yards, so a rifle that shoots at 1 MOA will shoot a roughly 1" group at 100 yards, 2" at 200 yards, etc.

It comes from measurements of a circle. There are 360-degrees in a circle. Each degree can be further divided into 60-minutes, and each minute has 60-seconds. Beyond that, it gets trigonometric.
