“Turnips” now that’s a new one.

(Reluctantly) Calling Massachusetts my home state I’m often called something less endearing.... like “masshole” for example.

Actually I've never heard turnip used in that way either I just couldn't resist an opportunity to give you a shot

For me the old classic is still good for folks above the Mason Dixon "Damnyankee" and yes in Virginia it's one word

I hate to bring this up, but turnips are not indigenous to North America.

Just sayin'

I saw an Indian (native American) comic this weekend while attending the Grand Old Opry. He stated emphatically that if they (the native Americans) had known there were so many white folks, they'd have built a wall.

Not sure about crotchety old white guys, but you're probably correct. I do know that the crotchety factor seems to be enhanced by age. At least my wife thinks so.

I love the G grade, surprised they are considered a production gun while the DH a custom. Besides what’s a bird gun without birds!

Agreed, I’m glad all three birds made it on the action! I would still consider the G to be the first in the series for custom guns, but that’s just me!
