Terminology

It's just sort of an evolutionary thing, and also how people loss track of the original definition of things. eg. these are just two I can think of right now that apply to weapons:
1. Saying .45 long colt, when it's actually just .45 colt.
2. Applying the word "pistol" to a revolver, when it's technically a handgun where the chamber is integral to the barrel.
