Wow. Chastised for terminology. I get it that I made a mistake, but people really get sensitive over stuff like that? I hope I don't have to re-read and re-think everything I post in fear that some will shun me for wrong terminology.
USA SHARK,

I don't think there was any ill-intent in this correction of terminology.

You have to keep in mind that "clip" is a term many anti-gun folk use to demonize regular-capacity magazines. I'm not sure why they use it - perhaps because it sounds more "gangsta" and helps to demonize responsible gun owners?

See below:

Of course we know that clip is an accepted term for the devices described in the posts by tahuna and jimbob.
