Tired of the Paperclip

With 3 Kimbers I finally decided enough was enough

Now to go shooting and get some dirty guns

I might have to look into that one, looks like it stays on with tension. I bought a magnetic takedown tool. Maybe I am doing something wrong with it, but every time I try to reassemble after cleaning, the magnetic tool pops off and then I am stuck trying to get the spring pushed back to put the original Kimber tool into that little hole!...and cussing like a lunatic! I had to stop using it on my UC2 and went back to using the original tool.

Tired of the Paperclip

I always thought things that did special things on my screen were widgets. My lil weather thingie, etc.
But I'm with Gibbs. I've called things like this, Doo-Dads forever.
It just doesn't sound right if you have to say, "Hey Clem! Whatz that widget you have there"?

Similar to a gizmo. Almost the same, but a little different.

Otherwise know as a "doohickey" ...a small object or gadget, especially one whose name the speaker does not know or cannot recall.
