As technology moves forward so do the types of firearms manufactured. with each generation that comes about there are small changes to the operation and types of fire arms, as time moves on some types of firearms are left by the wayside. As noted most of you older guys out there scoff at modern day firearms such as some of the newest bullpups such as the P90 for example. So from the blunderbusses of the past to new high tech chemical laser able to melt a M1A1 from 5 miles away in under 10 seconds, what is YOUR most preferred gun action for any all around situation that you like the operation of the best I.E a auto loading pistol, revolver, pump shotgun, lever action rifle, break action etc, this is not about manufacture or cal, just action. Mine is the break action, there nothing like the feeling of a nice break action firearm.
