    Trying to determine if the term "clip" or "magazine" varies by geographic location. This will probably be like a Coke versus Pepsi, or a Pop versus Soda versus Coke deal as well.

    Oh well, here we go.

    err... I don't think it has as much to do with geography as education.

    A clip is a clip, a magazine is a magazine :dunno:

    I beg to differ. I have never heard of any educated gun owner from my area call it a clip. I usually here them say "magazine" or "mag". This is why I am trying to find out.

    Don't screw up my controlled scientific study. :squint:

    I call it a magazine, and it dosnt matter where you are from. A magazine is a magazine.
    Just like a car is not a bicycle and a bicycle is not a car. Makes no difference where you are at.

    This is how I have always thought of it. I should have been more specific. I had an AR-15 or handgun in mind.

    This is a retarded question. Its like asking if the term "apple" or "orange" varies by geographic location.

    this is what I'm saying. You'll have people that were educated from rap videos/movies calling it a "clip" and people who know what they're talking about calling it a magazine. It has nothing to do with geography.

    There have been a few threads I have been in today where people were calling a magazine a clip. Let me go find some quotes. :o

    This isn't a regional thing like pop and soda; there is a definitive right and wrong.

    some people call any kind of Non-alcoholic carbonated beverage a Coke, no matter if it is a fanta sprite dr. pepper ect. . . . that's also distinctly wrong, but still a regional thing.

    Thanks. This is what I was trying to get at with my analogy.

    I was in Texas and I asked for a Coke. She said, "what kind?" I was like, "a Coke... as in Cola-Cola." :rofl: I also said pop a few times and people were like :hsugh: at me. :o

    True.

    I posted the magazine/clip debate in the main forum. Let's see how this turns out. :mamoru:
