I see you have been in the Classified Ads :)

BTT: Bump To Top - Moves post to top of page. WTS: Want To Sell
FTF: Face To Face Transaction
WTB: Want To Buy
WTT: Want To Trade
NOS: New Old Stock
RCBS: Brand of Reloader :D

Hope this helps.

BTT -- "Bump to Top" (No one's buying what I have for sale, or commenting on it, so I'll post a basically "null" post so my thread bubbles back to the top of the forum and maybe someone will notice it who otherwise wouldn't have bothered to look a the second page of ads.)

WTS = Want to Sell

NOS = New Old Stock (New in box older model.)

FTF = Face to face. Or, sometimes, Failure to Feed/Fire. Context is important for this one.

FTE = Failure to extract, or eject.

WTB = Want to Buy

WTT = Want to Trade.

You're missing a few important ones:
IIRC = if I recall correctly (worrisome on the reloading forum)
RKBA = right to keep and bear arms
SHTF = moderators please lock my thread
and of course the all important
IBTL = I beat the lock!

SPF? and GB?

In the Trading Post, SPF would be "Sold Pending Funds." GB is probably Gun Broker, the auction site.
