    Guns were fired and reloaded and fired again, innocent teen in a nearby house hit in the face.
    This is why you should carry extra clips.

    I said I was gonna be a jerk...

    Honestly, common incorrect usage does not make something correct. With that philosophy I might as well shoot my handgun sideways. Or get a C-96 Mauser pistol which actually is clip fed.

    Sure, but it's one well worth pushing back against.

    You're right... the media since the 1930's has called mags "clips" and has indoctrinated the general populous into calling them "clips", meaning most folk are just ignorant of the difference.

    You're on a gun board... you should know better.

    Once a colloquialism becomes an accepted term for something it takes on that definition.

    For example, Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary 11th Edition defines a clip as: "A magazine from which ammunition is fed into the chamber of a firearm."


    No, I don't have anything better to be doing right now, why do you ask?

    You're welcome to bring forth all the "evidence" and modern colloquialisms to back your position as you wish....

    ...but at the end of the day, you, me, and the rest of the board all know what the correct usage is and that you made an error.

    bah!

    I just realized I got a thing I should be doing, or else I would prove beyond a doubt that it is perfectly ok to refer to a magazine as a clip.

    YAKIMA HAS GANGS!? Holy Shnikies! They are in the middle of nowhere!

    I guess it makes sense. Large city in the middle of no where with little or nothing for its teens and young adults to do. Passing through there I have always seen a large portion of the roaming teen population parked at fast food restaurants and cruising up and down the main streets, but never figured there to be organized gangs.

    Early in my Navy career working as a SERE instructor I was checking out an M14 for student harassment, the gunner handed me the several boxes of blank rounds and mags, I asked him for a spare clip and got my ass handed to me. Never forget the difference again.
    Iím proudly straight. I'm free to not support Legalization, GLBT, Illegal Aliens, or the Islamization of America.

    Yakima has had gang problems for a long time and gun violence for a long time too. My brother used to work and live there for awhile and he had some bad stories from there. If there ever is a case to be armed it is Yakima and having guns helped him out in some sketchy situations there.

    It had gangs back in 1986 whenI was stationed there.
    It also had a high per capitia STD rate.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I used to work for a computer sales and service company based out of Union Gap. They'd call me in from Kennewick to service customers in the really dangerous parts of Yakima cause I was the only tech with the cajones and/or dumb enough to do so. EVERYTHING in that part of town is covered in gang graffitti and I heard enough gangsta rap to last me a lifetime. Police patrols in those areas are few and far between. I carried back then just for that job alone.

    Anyone watch that show on History Channel called Gangland? Seems like gangs can and will se tup shop anywhere. They are like any business and if there is a need for some misguided people to "belong" to a group and be "tough", or if there is need for illicit activities, there will be agang ready to provide. Gangs or not, there are always dangerous people out there, whether it be a dusty old town or a bustling metropolis.



    NavyLT, shells are usually for shotguns. I guess you put shells into The Judge, though. And yes, rounds is the correct word, not boolets. Plus revolvers have chambers, not magazines. I suppose the speedloaders could be considered clips? I've never used one, but it does seem that the rounds clip onto them. But if clips feed rounds into magazines and magazines feed rounds into the gun, speedloaders may not be, because they don't put rounds into a magazine... Too much thinking!!!

    Arguing this point over the forum is like running in the special olympics, even if you win you're still a retard. Join the real world.

    Frankly I could care less if they started calling them kumquats instead of mags. What really pi$$es me off is the media that insists on calling an AR an "Assault Rifle" (probably because of the initials which actually stand for Armalite Model 15). Once the media gets it wrong you can bet that Politicians surely improve on the ignorance of the "Fourth Estate".

    YAKIMA HAS GANGS!? Holy Shnikies! They are in the middle of nowhere!
    The Yakima Valley I have heard has the second highest gang membership per capita in the country, but that's not from a reliable source.
    Last week, at the pretty much weekly town gang forums, the police estimated there is between 300 and 1000 active gang members in Sunnyside (where I live,) and that's not counting the associates and dropouts. Sunnyside only has 13,000 people.
    What's scary about the middle of nowhere is the lack of police presence. That's why I started carrying in the first place. I used to live in Seattle, and was secure with just my hands and maybe a box cutter (which I used at work of course) but since I moved here I carry two sidearms and if I go walking anywhere I night I wear kevlar.

    Channel 9 did a thing on gang violence in the Valley. If you remember the anti-gang law that was passed last year- it started in Sunnyside. The police chief in this video claims that it worked (I beg to differ) because for a couple weeks after passing the Sunnyside law shootings dropped from three a week to zero a week. They're now back to three or so. Look up "Sunnyside" in Googlenews, and there's always something about gang violence.

    From one of the articles on the "raging gunfight":

    Sergio Salinas said doctors told him the bullet broke his brother's jaw, traveled down his spine and may have lodged near his kidney.

    Holy crap!!!!! Now that's some penetration, if it's true!

    Why is it always the "accidental" gun shots that seem to do the circus tricks in the body?!
