Can anyone explain exactly what these so called Pumps are, from some PHs, Swole, etc... is it like a pulse kind of thing were it like feels like your, muscles are pumping? Thats what ive always assumed, but i saw a thread on bodybuilding.com about someone was looking for things to help the pumps for vacation. Does it mean your muscles are temporarerely (not permanent,lol wow i cant spell) swelled up more or something?
Im just confused with this terminology I keep hearing, anyone explain please lol

The pump is just the blood filling up the cappliaries and other blood vessels in muscle tissue. Its why you look awesome for a few hours after you lift and AAS including phs make the pump last longer and be more extreme based on a numbero f biochemical reactions that take place with the addition of exogenous hormones.

If you've ever worked out then you have probably had a pump. Ever bent your arm and not even had to flex your bicep because it was already solid and full? Well there ya go.
