Optics Planet has a handy little glossary for hundreds of the most common terms used within the shooting sports. Ranging from calibers .117 to “Zero” and “Zoom” the glossary is a solid start for a newbie to learn more or an enthusiast to brush up on their diction and definitions.
I, for one, am a fan of these types of resources. Being someone who enjoys forums, I personally watch experienced users berate new joins for “dumb questions” and not “using the search.” These types of resources help both new and experienced alike meet in the middle and increase enjoyment of shooting.
