http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/members/sarge_257/albums/sarge257/2205-clips.jpg 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.
