I think DIgh may have been the word I was wanting, but it didn't come up in my search.
I've been really slow at learning new words.

 Maybe instead of using {bam}, use
 the related word {DIgh}, perhaps
 {DIghpu'wI'} "one who has dealt
 with (something)."
 I'd also be
 inclined to pair {chu'chu'wI'} (one who is
 clearly/perfectly new) for a newbie with
 {ta'ta'wI'} (one who has
 deliberately accomplished) for an old pro, and
 that covers about the
 same territory as
 rookie/veteran.

 trying to find a pair of relatively simple words that I can
 use to label  people as the equivalent of rookies (it's
 their first  time experiencing something) or veterans
 (they've been  through it before).

 ever needed this kind of distinction, and if so, did you 
 come up with anything satisfactory?
