    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.

    Now, if you want to get reeeeeal technical, it is: .30-'06 Spgfld.
    As in caliber .30 of '06 (1906), Springfield (armory...the government one, not the present, private one).

    So, if your wife coordinates her carry gun with her outfit-de-jour...have you helped to create a Fancier of Firearms?

    - if your girlfriend/wife is jealous of the time you spend with your guns
    - if your wishlist on midwayusa totals up to the price of a new car
    - if that new car would be a bentley
    - if your already thinking about your next gun while your filling out the paperwork on the one you're buying.
    - if the guys at the local gun shop send you a christmas card
    - if you own a guns you haven't shot yet
    - if you have a room in your house dedicated to guns
    - if when someone says "but what if you don't have a gun with you?" and after 15 minutes you still can comprehend how that would be possible.
    - if the sound of full auto gun fire makes you feel all warm and fuzzy

    Re: .30-'06

    How about thirty odd six?

    I have a Remington Model 6 carbine in 30-06, and in PA many people call it 30 odd six...

    Yes you might be a serious GUN NUT if all you think about is different ways to pronounce 30 06..............

    -if you can convert a thread about how to determine if you're a gun nut into a thread about how 30-06 is pronounced, and where it's name came from, etc. ;f

    guilty!

    -if you shook the presents under your tree, and one fired a round out of it.
    -if you've spent more money at Midway USA, Brownell's, and Cabela's than the companies are worth.
    -if your will specifies your favorite firearm(s) to be buried with you.
    -if the glock talk logo is burned into your monitor.
    -if you have had a friend who thought knives were soooo cool and dangerous, then you showed him your AK-47 collection
    -if you wonder why you must renew your CCW license every year, but your marriage license won't expire.
    -if someone asks how many guns you have, and the answer begins with "about" (i.e. "about 50 or so").
    -if you took an ink blot test, and your answers were things like "an AR-15 sear", "bolt release from ruger 10-22", "firing pin from M1911", etc.
    -if you know you carry 45 caliber 230 grain full metal jacketed hydra-shock hollow points from Federal, but don't know the color of your wife's eyes.
    -if you have ever shot a hole in something on accident
    -if that something was your TV during a Bush/Gore debate
    -if you buy Hoppe's solvent in 50 gallon drums because your howitzer "likes" it
    -if the gun show owners let you in free.
    -if you named a dog after a gun.
    -if you name your kids after your guns.
    -if you time yourself each time you fill out one of those yellow forms, and you're down to a minute flat.
    -if NICS put your favorite gun dealer on call block.

    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.]

    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.
