    I put the word mag, clip or feeding device behind "high capacity ammo" in my future diaries?

    That's a simple enough request and if it bothers you that much then I will be happy to oblige you.

    Is that cool with you?  

    •  yes, please. Do you yet understand the need? (0+ / 0-)

      have you, for example, ever personally seen ammunition or a firearm?

        I do not feel the need.  

        Like I just told the poster below, in my everyday life, when I go to the range with my brother, who uses a 15rnd mag, we simply use the term "high-cap"

        You see, I don't ever use anything bigger than 10rnd mag and always uses a 15rnd mag.  So we call his "high-cap"

        I guess, since I am not a writer, I tend to write as I speak.  

        Also like I told the other poster.   I do not write Diaries to start fights or to piss people off.  Therefore, if it makes you feel better I am honestly happy to add the word "mag" at the end of high-capacity.

        I hope that means we're cool and no more tension between us.

          but it makes me sad too.
          I believe the English language is a fine, precision tool. I like to see it used so as to maximize its potential.

          But you may come across people who are more hardcore than I am on the issue of whether it's the magazine or the clip or the actual bullet you're calling hi-cap.
