    Malapropisms - got any?

    Wondering how many we could come up with for shooting oriented stuff. Haven't thought of many yet but we could perhaps have stuff like -

    ''He pulled the tricker''

    ''Get a firm hold on the gripes"

    ''The billet hit him in the chest''

    ''What caliber cartilage is that?"

    ''This barrel has a 1:9 twirl"

    ''Nice scope mints"

    "I see that is a bowled operated rifle"

    ''How many pages does your magzine hold?"

    Was never very good at these... slightly better with bad puns.

    Used to, but then I saw the doctor and had them removed!

    Hmm like "Two to the bobbie, one to the chest"?

    I can come up with several using Glock, but I'd be so banned.......

    A couple off the top of my head (I wish I had written down some my wife has said.)

    I'm not stickin' my neck out on a limb..." - It's, "I'm not sticking my neck out..." and "I'm not going out on a limb..."

    A friend's friend said, "Yeah, and what about that Bag of Pigs incident in Cuba" - It's Bay of Pigs.

    One of mine is, "That will be good for the rest of your life or until you die.", although I'm not sure that's really a malapropism.

    Heard at the range:

    "Your gun stinks occasionally...is it a semi-aromatic?

    While not really gun related, it still cracks me up when I hear people talk about arrow 'spline'. As in - "I think that arrow is over/under-splined" which guarantees you should not be taking advice from this guy in regards to the SPINE of your arrow. :)
