Are you talking about like going on a raid? Because that isn't an acronym.

Raid - search without warning, make a sudden surprise attack on; "The police raided the crack house"

Bootleg probably means RAID as in a RAID modded uniform.

Think Raid comes from old mythology. Either it was a warrior or it was war-technic.
I can't recall from who I head this and google did not help back this up. My memory tells me it was something like that anywhozer

Yeah that is exactly what I meant. Sorry I should have clarified. Basically I meant "RAID" as in RAID pack, etc.

Thanks for the replies. Another addition:

MJK - Matt Johnson Khaki (Correct me if I'm wrong)

*EDIT: MIPIM - Mini Integrated Pointer Illuminator Module
