    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    it was originally made in 1906.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
