contrary to the popular belief the the word gat comes from the prohibition era, the actuall word "gat" comes from the name of Richard Gatling. Richard gatling, in the mid1 18- late 1800's, designed the original Gatling gun, a 6-10 barreled rotary weapon that used a hand crank to turn the barrels, load a cartridge from a magazine located above the firing mechanism, and fire the gun. this weapon inspired others such as Hiram Maxim to develop the Maxim '08 with the two most common calibers be 7.92mm mauser and .303 enfield. this gun also also inspired the 7.62mm minigun and GAU-8 30mm cannon. since modern machine guns, both multi barreled and single barreled derive their origins in the gatling gun. over the years the word gat has come to mean any self loading semi auto or full auto weapon. (handgun or machine gun.
get your gat, lock and load, we're going to war.

Girls Against Texting. (Alternatively, Guys Against Texting). Occurs often when a person of the opposite sex fails to respond to texts on a consistent basis, usually for lame reasons. Only tends to occur if the girl/guy in question has dating potential with the sender. One of the easiest ways to keep interest/annoyance and tensions high. (Basically a mind game). Commonly occurs when a conversation is started, and then abruptly ends with a failure to respond, with overused excuses sent hours later.
Guy1: This girl just asked me if I wanted to hang out, and after saying yes over an hour ago I still haven't gotten a response.
Guy2: You just got G.A.T.'d.
(6 Hours Pass.)
Guy1: Ok, now she says she can't hang out because she's tired. Awesome.
