Re: [Gen'l Info] CLICK VS MILE
In Response To: Re: [Gen'l Info] CLICK VS MILE ()

My notion is that "click" is somewhat generic, like the English use of "corn" (as opposed to the American meaning of maize or Indian corn)--that is, that "click" originally related to sight adjustment on the old M1 Garand/M1 carbine. From there it picked up the loose meaning of "so many units of whatever we're talking about," minutes of angle, km, miles, or whatever. Never intended to be precise, just rough idea of "how close."
