If you want to have some fun use the clip word at a gunshow next to some urban ninjas arguing over whats the best sniper pistol...

There is a gun store here that will fine you a buck if you call a magazine a clip. The money goes to charity. At that store it does make a diffidence. You learn real quick after ten dollars.

I love the Suburban Commandos that have to show how smart they are by nitpicking every word someone else uses.

These are the same DBags keeping our malls safe from Ninja assassins and twelve year olds on skateboards.

At the local gunshow Saturday, there was a sign at the ammo & mag stand "CLIPS".

the proper term is magazine not clip, but there are many places where i have seen the term clip on packaging also. there are many noobies who use the word and i think the proper way of handling it is to simply say that the word magazine is the proper term for it and then just drop it. i really can't see it being something to argue about and in the past before i knew better i used the word clip also. i call them magazines now, because that the proper term.
