    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.
    One of the most fun nights we've had pest shooting is with an old 10-22 that suffered a broken disconnector I think. I pulled the go lever and got rewarded by a nice rainbow of spent .22LR cases and a stuffed rabbit. Rather uninspiring with subs, and it took me a while to work out what had happened. Of course we took the thing in to get fixed the next day (ran out of ammo...).

    I have tried them all fairly extensively over the years, and it is a case of 'horses for courses' as each is perfectly suitable in its right place. For general field and 3-gun shotguns I definietly prefer pump action, but I use an U&O for trap and skeet. Lever action rifles are fine for cowboy action but other than that I don't like them. I hunt with bolt actions, except for goats where I use my AR15, or my 10/22 for bunnies. For a thoroughly enjoyable day, nothing is better than full-auto! I do not like muzzle-loaders much as they are slow, dirty and finickity, but I still shoot them from time to time. With pistols I prefer a revolver for its accuracy, but use semi-autos for IPSC. I guess the short answer is; it doesn't matter much, I just like shooting!

    Mauser308, had the same thing happen to me with and Armalight whilst trying to shoot goats off a slip up the coromandel.
    Scared the shit out of me. We ran out of ammo in the shot and all we got was the sound of laughter from the goats.
    Luckily we where shooting down onto the slip because man that thing rode up and to the right like you have no idear! Hate to have sprayed 308 rounds all across the sky
    Stopped in Wahi on the way home to the gunsmith that used to be just out of town there and had him fix it!
    Sold it after that. To expensive to run and also weighted a ton. Shot them with .22WRM after that a single shot savage that I had converted from .22lr!
    Anyway I've my vote goes for driven boar leaver action or double barrel.
    Deer stalking bolt action.
    Birds 12gauge under and over.
    Pests bolt action in .22WRM

    Rabbits over dogs 20ga SxS same gun for ducks.
    Rabbits over ferrets 28ga double.
    Rabbits night shooting 20 auto and .17 hornet or .223 bolt.
    Deer whatever bolt rifle is handy
    Rabbits with the thermal, we'll see, might try it over the AR cause I don't like the noisy bastard of a thing for anything else.
