    What's your favourite action....

    Not that sort of action you dirty buggers!

    I haven't played with all of them so can't really say but favourite so far has to be a break open with ejectors... Nothing beats a face full of gunpowder smoke

    I thought about it... Figured the choice between 7 was going to be enough of a mental work out for some. Added them all up and then realised I had missed full auto so put that in instead!

    Yea I agree,
    upland, pheasants, quail etc, I take a break action, double
    ducks, etc semi auto shotgun, same for flushing rabbits.
    big game bolt or falling block, single shot.
    And have used a pump action rimfire for small game for years, and prefer it over bolt or semi.

    seen as its the roar, I am going with a bolt action.

    What your favourite.... As in over all, I agree it depends on the purpose, guess the preceding question is what's the favourite shooting activity then think favourite action

    In my world there's just no beating a Lever Action rifle.

    Semi, can't beat having another round ready to go without having to lose cheek weld.

    Still taking about guns?

    I guess if you put it that way then I'm pretty solid on semi autos.
