unfortunately, i've never been able to use a bolt action
rifle in the correct fashion. (that is to say holding it rigidly
in place with your eye still on target while manipulating
the action with the other hand. i have to take it down
while looking at the rifle- WRONG! -and work it,
then put it back up and re-acquire the target)
i've missed a lot of good deals on really nice bolt actions
over the years because of my inability to properly use one.
to me, they're a heavy single shot with extra ammo storage.
i couldn't pick a favorite among any of my levers, singles,
probably my dad's 1950 marlin 30/30 my mom bought
him back when they were really young and still poor.
i have no idea how many animals he shot with it.
i know i've shot a couple of boxcars worth myself.
i never had the gun writer's problems of poor accuracy
and lack of power with it.
The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.
Honor the Texas flag;I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas,
one state under God, one and indivisible.
