I agree with madcrate. also the OP did not specify what guns he is using said clips and mags for. the entire dictionary discussion here is started from one person taking offense at at a statement that was never made. a vast majority of guns have magazines however that does not mean that they do not also use clips nor does a question involving both terms require a lecture on terminology.
my post though it contained basic definitions was not meant to chastise or add to the existing discussion. I was merely pointing out that clips have virtually no area of improvement with use do to their simplistic design features.
