The Texas sheriff's deputy who was killed at a gas station was shot 15 times by a gunman who unloaded his entire clip, a prosecutor said Monday as the suspect appeared in court for the first time.
Repeat after me: magazine, not clip. magazine, not clip. magazine, not clip.
UPDATE: I don't think anyone has ever made a 14-round clip, and anyway you'd have to go all the way back to something like the Broomhandle Mauser to find a handgun which was loaded with a clip. (Which held 10 rounds, so maybe a 14-round clip isn't so far fetched.)
Anyway, lots of magazines are even larger than that, up to and including drum magazines carrying 100 rounds.

Though it does come with a Kelly grip, as it was originally designed as a machine gun.
Trivia fact: It's was the Punisher's favorite gun in Marvel comics.

I was just thinking that 100 rounds of Parabellum weighs a lot even if the gun doesn't weigh anything at all.
That helical feed is clever. The Thompson drum magazine uses a spiral, and it never occurred to me that you could do the same with a helix.

Have to wonder if that 100-round magazine is really practical. The 50 round looks reasonable, but the 100-round version is huge.

Although I can say from personal experience, that a 9mm Calico with Hellfire trigger installed, and a 100 round magazine full of Vector illuminated ammo, is the closest thing to a laser rifle you'll find in real life.
That latter did teach me not to use chunks of wood for plinking targets, by the way: It's rather scary to see a line of light that represents your bullet enter the chunk, encounter a knot, and exit at 90 degrees...
