Maybe I've spent too much of my life playing with firearms and/or maybe I spent too many years in the military running armories and firing ranges. OR maybe I am getting too cynical and too crotchety in my old age (I hope not), but some things really irk me these days. Bear with me. I am a stickler for terminology (probably that military thing). If we are going to use, work on, and love firearms, shouldn't we show some semblance of knowledge. Has anyone ever seen a 7.62X52 NATO round? No, because there is only a 7.62 NATO round which is in all cases 51mm long. The same thing goes for the 5.56. There is no NATO round other than the 5.56 NATO which is 45mm in length. There damn sure isn't any such thing as a .223 NATO. AND the 7.62 NATO is not the same as a .308 Winchester round, nor is a 5.56 NATO round the same as a .223 Remington. I know, I know, in most cases they will both fit in either chamber. How would you like for someone to say that you slept with your sister? She's female just like your wife or girlfriend (I know that comment was gender specific and possibly crude, so shoot me). That doesn't make them the same does it? People, both professionals and people who are in this for enjoyment, constantly use these terms interchangeably. In my eyes a person who points to a Taurus pistol that shoots .45 ACP ammo and calls it a 1911 is showing his or her ignorance. And it's not just the nimrods and rookies. You see it on many websites, such as Cabela's, Cheaper than Dirt, and Midway to name a few. I'm sorry, but it just trips my trigger (pun intended). Okay, I have vented long enough. I feel better. Thanks for listening and I'd love to hear your all’s opinions.
