    I realize it is probably petty...but it bugs me and I just need to point it out... :D


    the description for the handgun forum says you can talk about "clips"

    Please change to magazines.

    :cool:

    There are a few handguns that use (stripper) clips. Lol

    I visit the forum from my phone so, I don't see the descriptions. However, when I'm with my shooting buddies I like to call magazines "clips" as often as possible just to rile them up.

    "Hey, how many you got left in your clip?"

    "How many clips will I need to complete this stage?"

    "You got any spare clips I can borrow?"

    They know I'm doing it just to frustrate them but, it still works every time! ;-)

    This IMO, is the silly part about guns that everybody

    argues about. Is anyone really super-concerned that

    somebody called a magazine a "clip"? WHAT,

    you didn't know what they were talking

    about?

    I carry an empty .223 stripper clip in my range bag for when the occasion comes to provide a visual aid as to the difference between clip and mag. It's handy.

    Whereas I'm so busy worrying about where to hunt,

    getting my semi mags hunting compliant, overall accuracy,

    tuning and painting my sights, organizing my equipment,

    finding more efficient ways to clean fired weapons,

    etc,etc, et all nite, that the last thing I ever have to

    worry about is whether someone uttered the infamous

    word "clip", within earshot...

    Ok, we all know the difference between a clip and a magazine.

    My AR15 accessories include 100's of clips.
    Yes... I said it... I have clips.

    Here they are....
    You use a stripper clip adapter to load your AR15 magazine with clips.

    But really, do you know all the technical names for the conditions your doctor describes. Do you know all the ballet moves. Do you know the correct names for surgeons tools. Terms regarding radio wave propagation.

    If ya'll had a high horse, I tell you to get off it.

    While I use the correct words for each, it's really not that big of a deal to me if someone calls a magazine a clip. Where I live a Coke is a soda. When I went to Michigan a Coke is a pop. Same thing, different term. Is it really a big deal? Not so much.

    Anyone who has been around firearms knows what a clip or magazine is. The new designation is to train all these new people in the firearms world. If the application of these terms up set you its OK to be uniformed. :rolleyes:

    And just to thicken the plot, it seems if you called them "magazine clips", they are not refillable.....not that either is ever refillable with bullets, but that's another pointless discussion...:)

    Is it just me?

    Or do ALL these women gun grabbers in

    government, appear extremely

    constipated, or sexually frustrated, or something?

    Sara, Hillary, Diane, this woman, they all have this pensive

    look, like they're suddenly afraid their broom handle has splinters,

    or they can't find the laxative isle at the pharmacy?

    Some advice for the ladies: Duracell Batteries. The tan end is

    'positive'...;)
