Definition of CLIP

1
: any of various devices that grip, clasp, or hook
2
: a device to hold cartridges for charging the magazines of some rifles; also : a magazine from which ammunition is fed into the chamber of a firearm
3
: a piece of jewelry held in position by a clip
The writer obviously is not a gun guy then. And neither was the supervisor who approved the release. Or, as I said in my post above, maybe it was used intentionally, thinking that the majority of people view magazines as "clips. Of course that dictionary is listing the term because it is commonly used that way.

(Sorry for the double post by the way. When I hit submit it prompted me to log on again and I did and hit submit again). I have too many things going on.
