    bolt hold open?

    OK, so this post isn't a slight against the term or anyone that uses it by no means, but I grew up, so to speak, calling this little device a "bolt catch" on the M16. I don't watch a lot of news or read the papers but it appears I missed a memo or something on this? Is this a move by the liberal left? Seems a little shady.

    Now, back to your lives, just a random thought I had today.
    When have any of our plans ever actually worked? We plan, we get there, all hell breaks loose.

    I think it is an attempt to appease the liberals. To "hold open" is so much more open and accepting, like opening up your mind like a parachute or to different religions and ways of treating women. I mean, can't we all just get along?
    "Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience..." C. S. Lewis

    meh. same damn thing. It catches the bolt or it holds the bolt open. Some of the guys in the shop use the term "bolt catch". I say bolt hold open because that's how I learned it.
