then eventually became "thirty alt six".

just easier to say i guess, but i'm no historian. that's just what i heard.
i always pronounced it "ott," not "alt" but its the same premise. .30 produced in '06. it's spelled aught, though.

edit: didn't realize this thread was so old until i replied

Bought a pair a week before I bought the newest gun....

I've been telling my mom that I have the same number of guns as I have work shoes ...

Guess I need to buy another pair of work shoes!

But, do you match your gun to your outfit or have matching purse, shoe and carry?

If while cleaning out your wallet, you find more receipts for recent gun purchases than from the local convenience store.

Yup. Went gun shopping today (Window. I didnt actually buy.). The shop owner said "You must need a new gun....." I think I disappointed him when I told him I just bought a Ruger Redhawk a few weeks ago.

.....Your dealer hands you a 4473 as you walk in the door of your fav gunshop, and says, "You usual sir?"

But glad to help your gettin' more guns!

If you begin to think about what sort of carry ettiquette there should be:

Should the carry gun match the tie? Purse? shoes? Or should it compliment?

What Glcok for what occasion?

Should there be anything about seasons? ("I can't believe that Ted was packing a 2" snubby AFTER Labor Day")

And what is the best carry for a Tux? (This one is a no-brainer: Walther PPK.)



I'll go hide in my cubicle again...

1) That depends on where you're concealing it.

2) Also acceptable is anything with Pearl or Ivory grips. (Imitation pearl or Ivory IS acceptable.)

3) Lasergrips Go good with any attire.

I'd love to go on "What Not to Wear", but somehow, I think Stacey and Clayton would have issues with me trying to dress around my guns....

'Course, I might just be able to find coordinating holsters and purses!
