What are they talking about?


#1

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. :rocket::flying_saucer:

What have you guys experienced (or done) in this realm? Tell us your stories.

#3

No stresses anywhere? I think that makes it even more difficult to say. Is it because you’re a bot? Lol

#5

Bullet vs Cartridge vs Case.
Always correct those.
Heckler and Koch pronounced Heckler and Coch (like crotch) Kosh (pronounced like Coke).
Coke is the proper pronunciation.


#6

The one i experience all the time is SAKO. Apparently it’s pronounced “sock-o”
I myself pronounce it “say-co”. Man can that one start people up.


#7

carbine


#8

Yeah! That one too.


#9

Why is there not a “like again” button? It’s a short i, not a long one… FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!


#10

I don’t need this shit! I’m very happy with my full semi-automatic and I don’t care how anybody pronounces or says anything. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: oh yeah, I have a Leeapoouldd scope mounted on it


#11

GA-rand or ga-RAND? I heard Jean “John” Garand’s last name was pronounced as the former, but most folks pronounce his rifle as the latter.


#12

As long as they get the “Ga” in there, I’m not picky. It’s when they say, “grand,” that gets me.

“It’s not 1000, it’s a guys name.”


#13

Yeah, even the wealthy Koch brothers’ name is pronounced as coke.


#14

Amen Brother ! Put that in yur pipe and smoke it. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
