I agree sir. I've been out of the Marine Corps since 1979. But sometimes I do laugh when I hear a phrase like "Do you like my gun?". Because it reminds me of being in Marine Corps boot camp(1976) and hearing the Drill Instructors correct recruits with, "This is my rifle. This is my gun. This is for shooting. This is for fun.". It ain't so funny when you're a recruit running around holding a rifle over your head and yelling those phrases. But it's funny now...I do not know why some feel they have to correct folks in this manner. I am no longer in the military, so I am not required to correct someone for using an incorrect term. I describe a clip as something that holds rounds together, where as a magazine (e.g., box or drum) holds rounds inside.
