    Bolt, no pissing around dropping mags and working the action if you can't take the shot. If you can take the shot your automatically safe after it goes bang

    I agree....I also like levers but the two I owned were shitters.....I would like a nice (have to be an old one to be any good it seems) lever one day.

    Semi does not do it for me....I am not against them I just dont have the use for one.

    Also Tikkas farking piss me off when ever you make safe you have to drop the mag and reload it...farking frustrating!!

    I've always had a soft spot for the rotary weapons systems. CIWS and the like. Not really on tangent - but they just sound so cool...

    Would not want to be paying to feed one though. Coupla $K a burst of 1/2 a second!

    I've yet to try a lever. Could be the next for my collection.
    I like my pump action shotty for speed but it's the same bullocks to make safe drama. Who wants to fumble round in the dark for dropped rounds.

    Never used a pump but a nice long 870 is on my wishlist.
    Lever action feels cool especially for plinking. I liken it to changing gear on a old Harley or something.
    My favorite is bolt action, like changing gear in a sports car.
    Don't really like semi's even though I have 1022(first rifle)
    Kind of wish I had got cz 455 instead now.

    Yep me too, old school is best if you can't get the job done with a single shot you need more training and practise in fieldcraft and shooting

    I like a bolt action in first place, but one day I'd like to pick up a Savage 99 for a lever gun. I like the ability to use pointy pills and they just look so sexy. I've used a few semis and they just don't spin my wheels.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Was expecting a discussion around what brands make the best donor for a build; instead I found everything from talk of bedroom action, to pump action to the lazy man semi. Entertaining read though...

    I will take the trifecta, semi auto for pistols, bolt action for rifles and pump for shotguns.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It's a hard one for me, I like both bolt & semi in a rifle. Probably semi, fast follow up shots and almost as accurate if not the same as bolt guns. If full-auto was permitted as much fun as it would be to shoot I would still prefer semi-auto.

    At the moment I prefer single shot falling block, but also really enjoy the break open doubles and levers. Seems I like old school style with modern build quality....

    I'd love to have a crack with three shot burst. See how controllable it is.

    I like bolt actions and own a few but to me they're old technology and a semi is superior in almost all practical situations.

    However a CIWS is the ultimate.

    3 shot burst like they had in the M16A2 or was it 3 wasn't too hard to control at all.
    Got to play with one when the AUG won the trial.
