    Well at less the MSM got "magazine" not "clip" correct.

    Well, the locals sure didn't here in Phoenix:

    A passenger aboard a Southwest Airlines flight found a fully loaded ammunition clip belonging to police officer's service revolver during a flight from Burbank to Phoenix Tuesday.

    The plane landed safely in Phoenix and the passengers on flight 1297 were taken off and rescreened. The plane was also swept and no other weapons were found.
    Thank GOD the plane landed safely, and no other weapons were found!!!

    Seriously, five minutes in the airplane's rest room is more hazardous to one's health than finding a full magazine.

    Glock? You mean those ceramic pistols that can go right through the metal detectors like they did in Die Hard 2?

    Is that the same model Glock that goes click, click, click -- after it runs out of ammo?

    That is correct to the best of my knowledge. It may be differrent with federal agencies. Also a need has to be shown as to why the weapon has to be carried in the cabin of the aircraft.

    it was reported to be a revolver in another report..which would use a clip (speed clip or speed loader) to store ammunition...if it stores ammunition openly it is a clip...if it encases the ammunition it is a magazine...when you guys learn to get over it you can concentrate on the real issue when you read something....
