You know? The cheesy over-priced crap that yuppies buy at REI or A16 before they go "hiking" or "camping" in their RVs at the KOA
You know what I mean? Stupid shit like that. Stupid shit that has no place in any campsite I want to be a part of anyways. Although, I do believe every camper should invest in one of these at the very minimum. It could be a matter of life or death without one. They're low on weight, so if you need a lot to keep you hydrated and going it won't be a problem to have a dozen in your pack while you're out hiking in extreme temperatures. That doesn't mean it has to be overpriced crap from REI, but it's one of the essential pieces of gear that no camping entourage should be without. Another one that you may or may not know could save your life one day is one of these. You cannot call yourself a serious camper unless you have one. Period. Although I don't know what the fuck a Coghlan's Can Opener is; never heard of it. They've always been called P-38's at Army surplus stores, or as my dad always called them, a John Wayne. I guess Coghlan's sounds a little more appealing to the fucking yuppie douchebags in their red or bright orange $600 North Face "Free Thinker" jackets. Free thinker? More like Stupid Fucker! $600 for a fucking wind-breaker because it says, The North Face on it. BFD! These assholes have the personalities of pine cones, and they have no place in the wilderness or anywhere else that's not accommodating to their special yuppie needs at the snaps of their yuppie fuckin' fingers.
There I go way off on another tangent that was really only supposed to be a minor detail of the post subject which was the misuse of the terms "clip" and "magazine" and how I fucking hate when they're used as if they are somehow the same thing, when clearly they are two completely different things that perform two completely different functions.
So anyways, I was browsing the Sporting Goods department and while looking over gun cleaning shit and checking out what they had as far as steel targets go, I came across the AirSoft crap and had to laugh. But then I saw the name of the company on the packaging. It said Crosman. Yeah, the same Crosman that's been around since the 1920's making air guns among others. I still don't quite understand how someone who's been around the industry and the sport for as long as they have can get such a simple thing wrong and then basically let the wrong continue to go on misinforming the uneducated into continuing to use the terms wrong in some kind of sick, twisted, and annoying little cycle.
If you've been reading our drunken drivel here at GGDF for any significant amount of time you probably know this is one of those things that annoys the fuck out of me every time I see or hear someone calling a magazine a clip, or calling it a magazine clip, or calling it a high capacity magazine clip because it is fucking wrong. The explanation of it all is so fucking simple to understand, yet people just don't; and they continue to walk around sounding like fucking idiots, pissing me off, and keeping the incorrect usage alive and well and believe me it happens more often than it should. Kerrcarto knows this and likes to give me shit whenever he can about it.
Sorry for the blurry pic. The camera on my phone is a piece of shit, and so is the pictured AirSoft Spare MAGAZINE!.
On a side note, I came across this disturbing news in my search for stupid and ridiculous yuppie camping gear and thought it was pretty funny and worth sharing this guy's observant and humorous rip on yuppie 'outdoorsmen' with you. I can't say I disagree with much of anything the author says about the subject matter either. Fuckin' yuppies!
