loc'd out

  • "locals only" + "out", where the "out" is used to amplify the word preceding and connote casualness. ("Out" being a popular modifier in Californian slang to add emphasis, e.g., "Trip Out", "Far Out" "Way Out", "Played Out".) Something special that is not widely accessed, as in a loc-d out route to get to the airport fast during traffic, a loc-d out beach that is beautiful and isolated, etc. Origin: California.
    Look at this traffic, we need to find a loc-ed out route.

  • John Wayne in the film Sands of Iwo Jima was to say "Load and Lock" but "Lock and Load" sounded better so they did not edit it for the correct term.

  • phrase popularized by John Wayne. Origin is from procedure for readying an M1 Garand firearm for firing.

  • possible alternative origin: When a horse is reluctant to enter the starting gate before a race the assistant starters will position themselves on each side of the horse's haunches. They each extend an arm and grasp the others wrist. With their hands thus "locked" behind the horse's rump they pull/push the horse and "load" him into the starting gate.
