Don't worry about striking a nerve. Its just the term Bubba is derogatory and many of the spoterized surplus rifles are very nice hunting weapons that likely were converted by the same generation who packed them off to war. So while we praise that generation for fighting WWII, we too insult it by attacking these other artifacts of their lives. We also loose sight of the fact the rapidly disappearing population of sporterized rifles constitutes a cleansing of another important chapter in the history of 1903s and A3s - their post-war civilian use.
