Just embrace it i say. Be glad you dont have to memorize a pictogram for every thought or concept.
WORD

The purpose of spoken language is to convey information from one person to other persons. If the person you are speaking with understands what you said, you did it right.

And if you call the stocks "grips," or "handles," or even "turds" if everyone understands what you're saying, why be anal???

So how often do you tell your anal friends to grab the gun by the turd?

What about "love handles"? Should they be referred to as "love grips"?

I just looked at a package that had Houge Monogrip in it. On the package it said "revolver stocks"

What is really funny is the person that put up the schematics called them a "pic" and said he would prefer to use proper terminology in the same post.

I worked with an instructor that was so anal retentive that he would have a fit if a new shooter said "clip."

But he would go police up the old lady and take her to the flickers! But he stopped on the way at at the watering hole to have a snort of hootch!

He left his piece in the bag on his hawg at the watering hole.

Yeah, he was really a stickler for correct terminology.
