This should stop for ever the argument between clips and magazines. If you look in the dictionary for magazine it states that it is a holder for ammunition. The pictures above, if the links work that is should show the difference. If the links do not work you can go to sarge257 gallary and click on the name sarge257 and it will show you the pictures I have tried to link here.
Sarge PS: It also will show you the barrel I had listed for sale in one story but could not get the picture to upload. Well it looks like only the pic on clips downloaded but you can see no magazines in the picture so you get the idea.

Sarge, it should but I bet it won't. Too many people-especially newcomers, don't know the proper terminology. Or perhaps they don't care or can't spell magazine.

For what it's worth, my experience shows that those who care to know understand the difference, and those who prefer to remain ignorant will never know the difference.

You know I never thought about the spelling part. LOL LOL
Actually I hear the Police on TV say it wrong all the time. And everyone seems to believe what they see on the TV.

Sold me. Here I thought a magazine was something one reads and clip was something one watches. Color my face red. :o

I would even accept mag, which is easier to type than clip. I hate clip because it is the term anti-gunners use, along with machine gun, assault rifle, and gunman.

I'd rather type a few more letters and dictate the words I use, than use the words chosen for me, about me, by the main-stream media.

I don't get it. If I am talking about my Sigma and say I just picked up a couple 16 round clips, everyone knows what I am talking about or they wouldn't pop off about Clip...Magazine. Tomayto...Tomahtoe :confused:;):(:eek:
