Good question, I've wanted to know for a long time.

I've always wondered this too.  You always hear in movies where someone mentions distances on a mapped area in terms of "clicks", but I've never known if it is a real term that is used anywhere but the movies.

In distance, one kilometer.
Or I've also heard it refering to .25 MOA.(one click windage or elevation).

Depending on the scope or iron sights it could also be 1 MOA.

Its not "click" it's "klick". Military slang. Same thing as saying "mike", as in "Please hold four mikes" meaning wait four minutes...

Is the connection between [b]k[/b]ilometer and [b]k[/b]lick the letter [b]k[/b]? Does it refer to clicks on a compas or lines on a map?

It's the actual unit of measure 1 Kilometer.

And Mike can mean millimeter as well 40 Mike Mike lol lets stir it up.

Well, Kilometer was shortened to K then that was modified in military tradition to something totally unrelated to anything else like klick.  lol

Are you by chance affiliated with the KKK?

Just kidding!!!

Klick = kilometer

FYI - Sleeping Bag = Fart Sack

I am not sure of the precise etymology of hte term, but I believe it derives from some sort of map measuring device (1 click=1 kilometer on map)  While this is merely speculation, it would make sense, as that is how some other terms have been derived...

Here's one I've always wondered about the origin of. I ate lots of Pogey bait (military slang for controban junk food we weren't supposed to take to the field with us) while on active duty. What the hell is a Pogey anyway?

Pogue is another name for a remf.  The only way to get them out to the field is to bring food, hence bait.

Now where did the term pogue come from?  Is it French?

If I remember my French correctly,  a "Pouge" is a small animal found in most wooded areas that is shaped similar to, and with as may legs as a "Snipe"  Everyone should have the opportunity to hunt this elusive creature.
