    What are some clip type guns from the 1980's

    When i was a kid my friend bought a few guns from another friend of ours his dad died and he wasnt into guns. I remember they had clips but i cant remember much else about them.

    What were some of the popular guns from the 80s that used clips? Im thinking they are 1911's but im not for sure. I think they were 9mm but im not for sure on that either. I know they wernt revolvers though.

    His dad took them away as soon as he seen em and locked em up. Im wondering if now they would be worth a little more if they still function.

    Just a few names or types would be good enough for me to search see if any ring a bell.

    For "clip type gun" substitute semi-automatic.

    There are hundreds of them. Maybe thousands.
    If it was a 1911, it more probably wasn't a 9mm. Most 1911s are .45 ACP caliber, but a few were 9mms.
    Walther? Colt? Smith & Wesson? Glock? SIG? Makarov? Tokarev? FEG? Le Franšais? Star? Llama? Browning? Sauer? Frommer? (Am I ringing any bells?)

    If I ever get in a shootout (god forbid) and ask someone to throw me a clip, I hope they don't get all snoody on me and say "you mean a magazine?"

    lol

    ...Or throw you a paperclip.
