[Military slang for an M-16 rifle with magazine inserted and
prepared for firing] Said of a removable disk volume properly
prepared for use - that is, locked into the drive and with
the heads loaded. Ironically, because their heads are
"loaded" whenever the power is up, this description is never
used of Winchester drives (which are named after a rifle).
