Bolt is what you learn on and for competition. Semi auto is for fun/plinking.and lever is just cool

Most cars now-a-days should have shift points in their manual, it gives you the mph to shift at in each gear to maximize efficiency, overall wear.

As he said, the bolt is a little more accurate, but it's basically a personal preference.

I've shot my Dad's bolt action Marlin. I didn't really like it. I couldn't work the bolt smoothly......it seemed jerky. Maybe I just need more practice?

I want a lever action but I want it to shoot like "The Rifleman's" lever action shoots.
