    Hola amayo,

    ¿Dónde escuchaste la frase? Entiendo que chumbo en la yerga se llama a un arma, revolver o pistola. Si tenes más contexto mejor.

    efectivamente, un chumbo es un arma de fuego. chumbar también es una forma coloquial de decir "ladrar" (to bark, not related to "ladrón"). also, in football (soccer for you my gringo friend), chumbar is to kick the ball really hard (the argie equivalent of a fastball, maybe?)

    No....like a cat does. Chumbo is slang for a gun. Kind of like the slang term in English, "Burner."

    Es una palabra que deriva del "lunfardo", una jerga originada en Buenos Aires. Significa revólver o pistola. Esta jerga era utilizada por delincuentes y gente de clase baja. Hay todo un diccionario de lunfardo y se pueden encontrar miles de palabras de este tipo.
