It drives me absolutely bat $%!# crazy every time someone refers to a Magazine as a clip. It's even worse when it is someone that should know better. I have gotten to the point that I just bite my tongue sometimes instead of telling the offender what a censored, censored, censored, censored, censored piece of censored censored he is. Am I alone on this? or?

Can't vote, the option wasn't there.

Someone throws the "clip" word out, and not talking about a Garand, and I'll interject "magazine". But I don't make a fuss about it.

Yes, the minute someone calls a magazine a clip, I deduct multiple points from the credibility. I don't care who you are.

Judd or Jeff will be along shortly to tell you my other major peeve.

TV and Movie people are the biggest offenders when it comes to firearms knowledge. I’ve seen two movies in the last couple of months where the star was focusing his rifle using the windage turret. Oh yeah, the clip faux pas happened in one of them. P_102

I know the difference and have for a long time. We grew up calling magazines “clips”. If I’m around my buddies that still do, I may do the same. I certainly don’t go around correcting folks about it. I know what they are talking about.

Same situation with a lot of words (buffalo/bison, antelope/pronghorn, etc.). Not a big deal.

Why would anyone get upset over a word? Doesn't make sense to me.

Yelp, the famous Hornady ballistic tip! Them dang diddly bullets are the dogs meow!

In the shooting world, there are many wrong words that shooters use. I see it all the time. Wrong words lead to incorrect information in a conversation. Just the other day a guy was talking about a muzzle brake. But what he was really talking about in his mind was a suppressor. It took me several minutes to figure out the difference, and lots of wasted discussion.

I figure if someone buys a gun they can call it what they want.

Also what about the Savage 99C, Can anyone guess what that C stands for?

So a guy buys a Glock 17, takes it to use at a WWII reenactment, and calls it a 1911. That's Ok?
