“What’s the difference between clip and magazine?

Due to numerous societal factors, more people are interested in becoming defensive shooters. We should welcome and educate these new gun owners and not put them down. More law-abiding gun owners is a good thing! With that in mind, Rob Pincus talks about gun terminology: the clip vs. magazine.

A clip is what is used to hold multiple rounds together. A clips primary function is to speed up the loading of a magazine which would otherwise be done one round at a time. Watch PDN’s the magazine vs. clip video for more details.”
