Your shotgun has a shorter barrel than your pistol and twice as many.

You consider buckshot to be a pest control load.

Your oldest shootin' iron was made in Connecticut before 1776.

Your still is older than your shootin' iron.

I won't say I am one but my spouse came from the redneck brood...

He trained his city wife to gut a fish, skin a muskrat, shoot a gun, hunt squirrels & make snapping turtle stew... deer is but a normal meat. And the entertainment is at the good ol' local coon club... food, drink, dance, game, social hangouts.

Even our 3rd grade DD have her very own weber BBQ grill like dad's, she fishes & hunts too... now we're talking.

If your daughter got married twice at the courthouse without you knowing and still has single on her facebook.

If your daughter stole the gun under your mattress to sell it for pills.

If the new husband of your ex-wife asks you for money so he can pay for his new truck payments which is used to drive your children to school.

If Mexican is the most exotic food you've ever had.

If Washington DC is the farthest north you've ever traveled and you refuse to go north of there without a gun.

If you have an RV, 18-wheeler trailer, 1 ATV, 1 go-kart, 1 golf-kart, 1 motorcycle, 4 flat trailers, a 25th anniversary 5.0 mustang, newer f-150, 60's dodge work truck, and rusty 1961 Pontiac something another all between your house and sister's back yard.

If you have 200 tomatos and can't get rid of them, so you keep them and cut off the rotten peices before making a matar samwich or eating a bunch with a salt shaker or trade them at a local store in exchange for expiring eggs.

If political discussions in sunday school class has soured relationships with peers.

You have to move QUICK in the springtime to get all that good manure piled up out there, before the road crews come by and haul it off...
We just go to the River open the Doors.

You might be a redneck (or a sledneck) if your four-wheeler or snowmachine cost more than your truck.
