Alright, guys. We’ve all experienced it. Maybe even been guilty of it. Mispronouncing or misidentifying gun related things.
I’m not talking about a slip of the tongue or those cats that call magazines “clips.” I’m talking a full on practiced and repeated failure.
I probably won’t call out someone on “LA-pua” vs. “la-POO-ah.” (Even I wonder, sometimes. That’s a hard one). However, if you pronounce “Mossberg” as “Mossenberger” or “Sig Sauer” as “Sig Sawyer,” it brings bubbling to the surface a rage that can scarcely be contained. Seriously, it makes me wanna dip kittens in hot grease. And, if I had a nickel for every time someone mentioned “filing the firing pin” of an AK or SKS to make it an illegal machine gun, I probably wouldn’t be writing this as I’m not sure how good wifi would be on the spaceship I would build with the money.
What have you guys experienced (or done) in this realm? Tell us your stories.
