As an NRA instructor, I have to use the proper terminology for everything that I teach in a class. It makes me look more professional, and also teaches the students to use the proper terms for the right parts of the guns and accessories. Am I necessarily a mag nazi? Not so much, but I have to be in front of students.

After an article I read saying that the correct term is Magazine, I always use magazine or mag now. Clip is a hollywood way to look cool.

As a pending Computer Engineering major who is prety picky about the difference between a magazine and a clip, I take offense to that!

For me, it seems obvious that you ought to use the right terminology, especially when selling something. The difference isn't that hard to grasp.

Then again, how many idiots will go to the Cabelas website and look up "Glock 17 clip" instead of "Glock 17 magazine?" That's probably why they did it.

Who gives a rat's azz what someone else calls it as long as you know what they mean.
Because we need a standard of language, and what one person understands, another might not. If everyone subscribed to that philosophy, every family would have an entire lexicon of words that nobody outside of them would know.

That sounds like the America I know and love.
