Thread: Correct Descrption/Terminology

    Correct Descrption/Terminology

    Can someone please enlighten me as to where on any box of rifle bullets are the contents inside described as, or, labelled as Heads?
    Don`t know why people call them Heads they`re rifle bullets,
    It`s just a personal observation but it does my head in

    This old chestnut again

    to to me it just doesn't matter , if somebody asks a question then rather than correct him about his terminology in a condescending manner I prefer to help them if I can , if I cant I just move along ?
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    These two things are not mutually exclusive: if someone's terminology is wrong, correcting them is surely the kindest thing to do. If you add a bit of condescention, the irritiation they feel might work as a negative reinforcement and cause them to use the correct terminology next time.
    Do you understand?

    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Probably because the RFD's selling them refer to them as such - Kranks included.
