Pronunciation

A friend and I quickly debated how to pronunciate when you're talking about an FAL style rifle. Do you say it as F-A-L, or fall?

I (and most people I know) say FAL as in the word "inFALlible".

Just say the three letters; nobody will mistake what you mean.

If you want to say it as a single word, then at least use its European pronunciation. It is, after all, a Belgian gun. It rhymes with "doll".
