Please don't. It's been done, ad nauseum. You'll see it happen. Some newbie will pop in and ask (as their first post, and first thread, mind you) why the "clip thingy" in his grandfather's (insert any mag fed firearm here) won't work, or "how many bullets does this clip hold?" or whatever.
Then, you sit back and watch the fur fly. Fifty otherwise mature and well respected members will make complete and utter asses of themselves by ripping this new member a new ******* to go along with their new gun, over, and over, and over, and over, repeatedly, and repeatedly, and repeatedly... until a mod steps in and extinguishes the flame throwers.
This usually results in some innocent, ignorant, poor soul who is just looking for a little friendly advice, now suddenly decides that maybe FTF isn't such a great place. They get mad, and leave. Very justifiably too. They probably all get the impression that us "gun nuts" are a bunch of flaming *******s too.
Totally not the way to bring new people into the fold. But watch. You stick around long enough and you'll see the "clip vs magazine" thing happen.
