Rock & Glock -
Thanks for clarifying! I'm originally from KY, so when I was a little shaver visiting my uncle in MI, he'd always call me his 'little hillbilly nephew'. I would refer to him as my 'plump-kin' - I was only 5 at the time & it was around Halloween.
I'll let him know this for future reference, altho it's been 30+ years!
It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

You're right, Rock. The "hillbilly" term should definitely be reserved for the North Texans.
