We'll just have him report to the virtual dungeon for punishment for the 'clip' slip.

Having to listen to puns for hours,getting floobed with soft noodle cat-o-nine tails and Nerf bats, and listening to endless Obama speeches ought to straighten him up.

Surley this is in jest. Stop calling me Shirley and I never jest. LOL

Or we have a NFL "zebra" throw the yellow flag and penalize him for "clipping".LOL

Not to worry. Calling a mag a clip is going to happen many times here and in the future. Too easy to do.

Milli Pro. People will continue to call mags 'clips' for a long time to come. Even us who should know better. You're in good company.

Could bring all the links that have had others call mags 'clips', but it'd be a career reading them all.

;) That reminds me of my dad who passed away in March at 82. He always called em clips. For the Braves fans he also called Chipper Jones- Clipper Jones and I never bothered to correct him. ;) Chas

All the replys on "clips" just show we are good guys who like to do a grinning jab once in awhile. And you are a sport ( "sport" showing my age.. Laugh)for not getting p.o'ed. Our Taurus troops should be running this country.

Welcome to the forums Mikenstl.
Where are our manners?

Two new members inroduced in one thread. A couple more and this place will set a record. Not Guiness of course, but a record.LOL

Throwing your hat into the ring Smokewagon? One of the staff as V.P.? Perish the thought. That just is hard to wrap the mind around. LOL

I think we call mags clips is because when most of us grew up it was on WWII movies where they always were running out of clips or hand me another clip. Or if your young then to the dungeon for ya

Clips, mags, mags, clips. I've seen ads selling magazines and they called them clips.
How did the name clip come about in the first place? Also, you read a magazine so how did that name come about? Is it also a cartridge? Is a round a round because it's round or because it's one of many? If it's one of many, should it be called e pluribus unum?

If you shoot your gun, did you fire it? If you fired it can it collect unemployment?

If you call a spade a spade, did you just call it a shovel?

Do you bring a hoe to a hoe down? If your girl is a hoe does that count?

Just curious.

Some early semi-autos had stripper clips - a strip of bullets lined up, essentially.
