    gunclipsrus.com (one of our sponsors)

    Went to check out the sponser. Gun Clip-R-Us does not sell clips, they sell magazines. Epic Fail
    Shot placement is everything

    Re: gunclipsrus.com

    Why does it make so much difference to this crowd if somebody wants to refer to their mag as a clip? Movies and TV have done it for decades.

    Seems like beating a dead horse to me.

    I agree that using the wrong name for an item is confusing, but so can using the correct name. There are two kinds of gun magazines, one you load and one you read.

    If you benefit from this forum the folks who support your free ride should be patroned not treated patronizingly.

    I agree that things should be called what they are... but chances are the domain name was just a catchy name that was available. If you actually go to their site, the magazines are listed properly - as magazines.

    Seems like we are splitting hairs. After all they think enough of the site to help support us.

    True, and probably won't be noticed by most people.

    I have to admit that I had the same though 45tex had at first...

    For the same reason I don't want to go to a doctor that doesn't know the terminology: "Well, that . . . thing . . . there seems to be giving you the problems, so let's just cut that slimy little gut-thing out!" No thanks. If you don't even know the proper name of something that is directly related to your core business, I'm not going to patronize your business.

    The fact that Hollywood has screwed something up for years is all the more reason to try to correct the ignorance rather than joining it.

    Again, dudes, forum sponsors... Let's cut them some slack and move on.

    If a company sells quality products at a good price with good customer service, I don't really care what the name of it is.
