Everything we do comes with acronyms, even texting BTW.  The U.S. Government is notorious for acronyms, hell I worked for the USDA-FSA-APFO in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Well, archery is no different and while looking at a new bow string for my recurve the other day, they had an acronym of (AMO) after the length of the string.

Not knowing what AMO means, my first thought was AMO was an archery way of saying AMMO, you know, the string is used to shoot the ammo (arrow).  But all the while I knew it had another meaning and so I went searching for that answer.  AMO actually covers a pretty big spectrum of archery equipment and stands for Archery Manufacturers and Merchants Organization.  These guys set the standards for stuff related to archery.  I don’t think my finger sling in the picture above meets their standards, but maybe it does.  It does meet BBOKDOKEE (Bears Butt Okeedokee) standards.

Well, trust me, there are a lot more acronyms out there related to bows and arrows, and so I did the research for you and found an alphabetical listing of what appears to be a pretty good bunch.

This website has a lot of interesting stuff on it besides the list of acronyms.  So, go and check them out!  Happy Acronyming!
