When the entire country understands a term, where is the problem?

After WW2 and the Korean conflict, most veterans referred to the magazines in their pistols as clips.

I knew several senior NCOs that called their M-16 magaxzines clips. I never found it necessary to reprimand them.

There are so many issues of importance facing us today, that I find minor distractions like this distasteful. I know whaty they mean. That's adequate for me.
