Can you please explain why?

here's what i was told by my grandfather:

it was originally made in 1906.
and it was designated "thirty caliber of 1906". Because there previously existed an earlier .30 cal round.
it was shortened (who wants to say all that) to "thirty of '06" (pronounced 'oh-six').
then eventually became "thirty alt six".

just easier to say i guess, but i'm no historian. that's just what i heard.

-if your guns are named names usually reserved for people
-if you designed your own caliber and built a firearm to fire it
-if you grew up with loaded guns all around you, but it never crossed your mind to shoot up your school.
-if you've read the Constitution
-if you know the second amendment by heart
-if you know the second amendment translated into more than 3 laguages
-if you used to have a hill as a backstop, but now it has become a 30 foot high mound of pure lead.
-if you make your own reloading tools
-if you make your own powder
-if you don't label your reloading powder, because you can hear the difference when shaking the can
-if you have ever read an article in the crime section of the newspaper and read "the suspect had over 200 rounds of ammunition", then assumed it was a misprint. who in his right mind would get down to only 200 rounds???
-if your CCW is a shotgun
-if your CCW is a .50
-if your CCW is a LAW

David, I resonated with the one where the guy arrested, "had 200 rounds of ammunition". Except the true gun nut wonders if the paper meant that he had 200 guns. The same gun nut wonders if the guy who the paper says had 10,000 rounds of ammunition immediately assumes the guy only had one gun, cause that's on the low side of what's a normal amount, but you can't look down on a guy for that cause, "hey, maybe the guy was poor."

I read several of the related posts...but I think the problem is the pronuciation...
I think what we say is "thirty ought six"...
"Ought" is a different way of saying zero.

Just to clear up one small point from some of the above posts, see the following:


aught(2)

aught also ought (ôt) noun
1.A cipher; zero.
2.Archaic. Nothing.

[From an aught, alteration of a naught. See naught.]

Excerpted from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition © 1996 by Houghton Mifflin Company. Electronic version licensed from INSO Corporation; further reproduction and distribution in accordance with the Copyright Law of the United States. All rights reserved.

If you've ever watched the Beverly Hillbillies, Jethro used aught or naught quite often. And at the beginning of the 20th century, I believe it was very common to refer to the years as aught one, aught two, aught three, etc. Anyway, you get the idea.

If you reload from memory and forget the powder charge, and you loaded
1000 rounds which are underpowered for your semi auto and rejoice that
you have a bullet puller!!!

If you still say thank you for all that 38 special brass your friends insist on giving you.

in older dialects (like on the beverly hillbillies the double naught spy of Jethro) and like here in rural kentucky,

naught or aught means zero

It appears someone of our dialect held more sway in that time than we would today.

We got to name something and it stuck, with few remembering why.

I remember my pawpaw talking about the winters of aught 3 etc (1903).

Now I can talk about aught 6 (2006) to my grand kids. And they think me quaint --- archaic....

then eventually became "thirty alt six".

just easier to say i guess, but i'm no historian. that's just what i heard.

Thirty aught six:

I assumed it was aught. As in, "remeber what happened back in aught five" Its an old fashioned word for zero.

1906 would be 19 aught six, shortend to aught six.

aught 2 also ought Pronunciation (ôt)

You have too many guns when crossing the border to Canadian Bacon the cops ask you if you have any firearms and you respond by asking them what they need.

You have too many guns when you get pulled over by the cops during a North Hollywood type incident and they ask if they can borrow some guns and ammo.


from Glockdude1:

You might NOT be a gunut if you THINK you have to many guns.......

What follows is a simple, direct proof that the sum of two even calibers is always even.

Consider two even calibers x and y. Since they are even, they can be written as x = 2a and y = 2b respectively for smaller calibers a and b. Then the sum x + y = 2a + 2b = 2(a + b). From this it is clear that 2 is a factor of x + y, so the sum of two even calibers is always even.

Okay, I will violate my own troll feeding rule:

mnMACD: This is not about striking a nerve, this is about TROLLING-i.e. what you are doing right now. This is not the forum for your tirade, you have been advised several times that this is a Joke and humor forum, not a gun control forum.

This particular thread is a humorous discussion about what is/is not a gun nut. It is just that humor, there is no political references being made, this is not a policy making issue, it is for FUN!!! nothing else. Now, please go elsewhere. You appear to be a poor misguided person who is not getting his satisfaction elsewhere and must interupt others fun for you own ammusement.

Now, may I direct you to: The Gun control forum of Glock Talk (http://glocktalk.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=24) this is better suited to your agenda.

You might be a gun nut

If you know the names of all your local gun dealers children and whether they will eat tonight or not. As in "Bob if I take 300 bucks for that gun, little Darlene will not get to eat tonight".

If your local dealer let's you leave a pair of reading classes at the gun shop.

If the local Police Dept's Field training officer has you stopped by the new rookies as how to handle traffic stops with CCW holder's cause they know you have a gun on. The third time which results in a nice discusion on how people can have legal machine guns.

If when you are getting your finerprints for another class 3 gun the rookie ask's what you need one for? When you explain that this is your third one He asks why 3 you explain by saying "Well you guys have two I figure I need 3" When he says " We don't have any machine guns" you explain by saying "yes, you do have a Colt Commando M16A2 and a Steyr MPI-69 submachine and that 100 bucks says they are in the property room right now". He then asks the Ast. Chief who confirmed they were there. You don't bother to explain that you helped the former chief do the paperwork on both.

If you and your friends can have a discussion with Pre, Post, Transferable, Form 3,4,5 sprinkled throughout without having to explain anything.


If you buy a second Colt 1911 because it's slides matches your frame on your current gun better.

If you buy a new coffee table where the top lifts up so you can attach a holster to it. Then wind up buy another gun to go with it.

If you buy a half dozen police trade in Ruger Speed Sixes so you can have an emergency gun in all your rooms. Yes including both bathroom's. Yes no kids in the house.

If you buy 20,000 rounds of 8mm because ammo just shouldn't be that cheap.

if you keep a small local gun shop in buesness.

if you buy out the ammo for a gun that you don't own nor ever seen, because walmart was having a sale.

if a local gun shop owner/gunsmith calls you to help him fix a gun.

if you have smith and wesson on speed dial, right next to springfield and ruger.

if you know the number to glock by heart.

if you have ever been asked to test out rugers new shotguns.

if you ever sold a idea of a new gun to browning.:supergrin: :rollsmiley:

- if your wife tells you that you left a magazine in her car and you ask her if it is the paper/picture/word kind or the holds bullets/goes in a gun kind
(guilty, happened to me after our beach trip this weekend, turned out it was my back-up G21 mag in the console)

- if you drive to the nearest newstand in a panic to get the latest gun mag because you have "to go #2" real bad (guilty)

- if you have a pile of scopes on your workbench right now because you can't figure out which one will look/work best on the project rifle laying on the other end of your workbench (guilty)

- if you keep buying parts for the next rifle project even though this one is draggin on so long (guilty)

- if you go to the gun shop to pick up an AR lower receiver but end up buying another scope (guilty)

- if two of your co-workers call you over because they are having a gun related argument and want you to settle it (guilty)

- if two of your co-workers are having the 9mm vs. 45 ACP debate and one of them don't want to call you over because they already know what you are going to say (guilty)

- if you use a catalog in the gun shop to prove to the new counter guy that the p/n for Hornady XTP/HP .45 ACP bullets is the same as the p/n for .45 GAP bullets because they are the same and not different calibers like he insist they are, and then go on to show him that the RCBS 3 die TC pistol die set is the same for both rounds (guilty, he tried to tell us that a .45 GAP was actually .32xxx in diameter but because the ballistics were so similar to ACP they "just called it a .45")

- if you keep thinking about personal experiences and typing them up as "you might be a gun nut" lines (duh... guilty
