    By default, if you are a member here (or just stopping by), odds are you are a dyed-in-the-wool Glock fan. However, even you likely have had at least a few of the below pass through your hands at one time or another. There are few things more embarrassing for a new gun owner than mispronouncing the name of a firearm. It's even more embarrassing for a long-time gun owner.

    To help the gun owning public, our friends over at OutdoorHub put together this great video to lay out how to better pronounce 10 commonly mispronounced gun terms heard along the gun ranges and shooting sports areas of the country. Of course, this is likely to appeal more to the, "that's a magazine not a clip crowd," (of which I am a charter member of our local chapter) but hey, the more you know...

    If you need further assistance, don't worry, we've included some flash cards made up for you just below the video.

    The list includes:
    -Mosin
    -Steyr
    -Kalashnikov
    -Garand
    -Dragunov
    -Sturmgewehr
    -Tavor
    -Heckler Und Koch
    -Makarov
    -Saiga
