    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.
