Yep, that is a good way of putting it; they both have their place. For power and long-distance accuracy I like my bolt guns but I like my 94 for ease of handling and quick shooting.

Another factor for lefties -- the lever is more ambidextrous. Most bolts are righties and if the rifle has a scope it is almost impossible to chamber a round by reaching over the scope. It results in the shooter getting out of position.\
All other comments are on target.
Bolt = long range, lever for shorter faster work.
