Appreciate the clarification. You're a good man. As you have never heard the term used for Mexicans, I have never heard the term used for a $100 bill. The only alternative meaning I've heard for it is a baseball pitcher throwing a pitch at a batter's head is a beaner - meaning he was aiming to hit the guy in the head. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=BeanerI have to ADDRESS this immediately!
I was called out by a fellow LRH member stating that my post was "Offensive".
I PM trebark and was told that what I said "Beaner" and trebark answer was "It is an offensive term for a person of Mexican origin".
I have no idea what trebark is talking about. Maybe trebark is thinking Mexican people have other names.
Where I come from a "Beaner" is a $100 bill. never heard it referring to a Mexican for money.
It upsets me where someone would say and think that I would say something racist.
Just want to clear this up. If other people refer to Mexicans as "Beaners" shame on them.
The attack on me here is just not nice and has no place on this forum. Further, it seems you might be ok with the use of a racist term. Am I mistaken? As Coyote Shadow Tracker said in his response, anyone who would refer to someone with such a term...shame on them.thin skin and all they want is to cry over spilled milk after nursing all day,,tell them to shut up and wipe their chin ,,,it's dripping on my CLEAN FLOORS....
Do you fit in the word THEY,,,didn't say YOU,,,,when I'm at a Olive Garden and say (honey/sweetie to the waitress) I'm not asking her on a date ...Think before you drop a hot coal on someones nap...Just saying from a old,whitetrash redneck from the foothills,,,,see,,,no thin skin here....The attack on me here is just not nice and has no place on this forum.

Your GTG..........Does anyone in their right mind think that I Posted this with my friend selling the shotgun for a "Mexican". Look at the context of the sentence!
"Well my friend ran into money issues after having twins and sold the Savage/Stevens without offering it back to me. (Probably sold it for a Beaner)."
This post and a LRH member will be on the ignore list.
The PC Croud is out there.
Amen to the grand Ithaca 37, much preferred in the old days in Saskatchewan over the model 12 Win, when long walks were the order in sharp tail hunting!Yes bringing a Post back to life.
My father bought an Ithaca Model 37 Feather Light in 16ga and then bought my mom a Savage/Stevens double 12ga (almost twice the weight). Couldn't figure that out, but 70 years ago. I had that 16ga for many years and shot a lot of rabbits, pheasants. I ended up taking the Double and reblued & refinished the wood about 30 years ago. Had a friend that had his FIL come over from Spain and wanted to hunt birds. He had shot over 3 dozen Elephants in Affrica. Got Jill and I Hooked on Affrica. I sold the Savage Stevens that was totally renovated to my friend for his FIL for $200.00. He kept it here in the US when he went back to Spain. Well my friend ran into money issues after having twins and sold the Savage/Stevens without offering it back to me. (Probably sold it for a Beaner). They moved and never gave us their contact info. Still wanted their friendship, but they were probably disgraced but didn't matter to us.
What a story to add to a 14 year old post.
Yes the model 37 is one of the best "Pump" shotguns.
