Default Magazine verses Clip

I don't want to stir up any feathers, but I continue to hear and see the word CLIP used in place of Magazine.. Just a little tidbit of information..

THE DIFFERENCE IS.. IF THERE IS A SPRING INVOLVED IT IS A MAGAZINE, IF THERE ARE NO SPRINGS AND IT IS A STAMPED PIECE OF METAL TO HOLD AMMO TOGETHER, IT IS A CLIP AS IN M-1 GARAND..

Ya'll have a great day..

We have had some long threads of this sort on a real busy gun forum...

One that gets me is "Rack The Slide" or "Rack A Shell" rather than "Cycle The Action" as it should more properly be called... I admit I used to say these things but I was a kid listening to and reading what adults had to say...

Racking a round sounds like something one guy or a crew struggle to do with a big heavy munitions system...

Pilot, I always cringe when I hear the "clip" used, just tells me the person is not very knowledgeable.

I will continue to mis-use all of the above terms...and, you all can continue to think I'm not knowledgeable and I will continue to not give a shit. Now, someone hand me my pistol, I'm gonna load some bullets in the clip, rack a round and do some shootin'....YEE HAWW!

Wow, split, I see you have never met Sawman or know his background, maybe when you grow up you will be half as smart and knowledgeable. Pretty sad to see a moderator demean members without even meeting them, I thought that is what moderators were supposed to prevent...yet you continually do it yourself...just sayin'

Actually as long as I know what the person means, I don't care if he's loading a clip or a magazine.
I think there's a lot of gun snobbery going on by some people and honestly I've got more important things to worry about than silly things like the supposed misuse of firearm-related terms.
