    And left after about 30 minutes. they had something like 225 rifles and pistols. used leo glocks were going for $325-400. and they were all terrible looking. they had 2 hk 93's both went for $2100 a piece.

    The auction guy kept saying clip concerning every gun there. i felt like for an auction, these were not deals. and after i heard clip for the 1195955 time, i left.

    i was waiting to bid on a decent g26, but after seeing what a used leo glock in terrible condition went for, i couldnt imagine what a decent glock would go for.

    cliffs- fuck auctions. no deals. its magazine, not clip fuckface

    The aucioneers say clip on purpose so that the guys that actually know about guns will leave. Then by the end of the auction all of the newbs have spent all their money and all of the guys that know shit are gone. That leaves the people who are in on it to get the good deals.













    I have no clue what I'm talking about

    Another thing I've seen is lots of Auctions have too many items to sell and by midday a lot of people have gone home and spent their money, sometimes good deals at the end.

    It just gets obnoxious sometimes when people who act like they/are supposed to know alot about guns use wildly incorrect terminology. When you think about how different a clip and a magazine really are, they really shouldn't get so mixed up.

    some of us spent some time in the military. they were anal as hell about terminology. after you get punished enough times for calling a rifle a gun or a magazine a clip you tend to get anal about it.

    I wouldn't call it a "wildly incorrect" term...

    Maybe if he was like, "This is a high-capacity barrel"...

    but clip vs magazines... I think it's stupid. STFU, you know what he's talking about.

    Between this shit, and the constant glock xd shit, it's fucking rare that something useful comes out of this forum anymore.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=clip
    clip

    n 1: a metal frame or container holding cartridges; can be inserted into an automatic gun [syn: cartridge holder, cartridge clip, magazine]

    And, so the people can understand what "syn" stands for:

    http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=synonym
    synonym

    n : two words that can be interchanged in a context are said to be synonymous relative to that context
