    I am not familiar with Class-3 rules but we DO have a unrestricted range where I live and I have NEVER seen a Civie with a 3RB...Although I have to say that shooting 3rb is the most fun ever! Aim low and left, squeeze! I don't know if thats because they all like autos, or 3-rb is illegal. I think that even with a class-3 it has to be pre-19?? and there were no 3rb's back then?

    At least for hunting, fully automatic is defined as any firearm that can discharge more than a single shot for a single pull of the trigger. So in hunting, a 3-round burst is considered automatic. Not sure what the BATF has to say about it though.

    I like your poll; great idea!!!

    But it is not complete.

    You left out at least the following:

    All of the Firelock class including...
    Matchlock
    Wheellock
    Flintlock
    Caplock

    Some of the cartridge class including...
    Revolving
    Falling Block
    Rolling Block
    Trapdoor
    Sidelock

    Oh, and "pump" action is a synonym for / subset of "slide" action.

    I have two lever action rifles and like them a lot (Winchester 94 in 30-30 and a Marlin 1894SS in 33 mag). I have shot one in 357 and they are really great.


    I have a few different rifles that fit into many of the poll categories. an SKS that uses AK mags an AK, AR, 30 carbine, a couple 10-22's, 17 hmr bolt action, a couple single shot shot guns and a couple pump actions. To me you just can't go wrong with any of them. I don't have most for any other reason other than wanting to shoot them because it's fun. I don't hunt much anymore because of the trashed back but I still love to shoot them.

    Good luck with the 357's, they're hard to come by. Marlin and Puma make them. Marlin, last I heard, is back logged a couple of months with orders. Puma might be available.

    Colt A/R 15 'Black Rifle"
    A/K 47
    Winchester pre '66 30/30 Lever-action
    Uberti 1866 Yellowboy lever-action rifle .45 Long Colt
    Remington Nylon 66 .22 L/R

    I really like them all, but enjoy my Lever Actions most - I guess I'm kind of a cowboy at heart.

    I have a few 22 semi-autos and a sweet Browning B 92 lever in 44 mag. Love it.
    Top is Weatherby XIX, Browning,bottom Marlin Stainless Model 6088.
    Would like a bolt or two, and a M14.I think 7.62 is the only way to fly.

    I voted bolt, because my favorite rifle is a Model 70 Winchester, in .30-06, but it really just depends on how I intend to use the rifle. I believe that a good bolt action is more consistently accurate than most other types.

    I like a semi-auto in .22 (36 year old Remington Speedmaster), and I'm fond of my Model 1894 Marlin in .44 magnum.

    Bolt action for accuracy. The first shot is the one that counts.

    I have at least one of all except a full auto...unless I bump fire but technically it is still a semi auto....

    We have way more rifles than pistols...that is why I am here...to learn from all of you guys who know more than I do about the handguns. You all are teaching me much already. Thanks, by the way!

    As usual I am jealous of you guys and girls across the pond with your collections! Currently I have a Mossberg 500 Pump action 12 gauge (restricted to 2 in the magazine due to UK laws), an Anschutz .22 bolt action (although this is a calibre we are actually allowed in semi auto!), A Match barreled AR-15 type rifle made by Southern Gun company in .223 complete with sound moderator (Straight Pull unfortunately again due to UK gun laws but with 30 round mags at least!) and finally a side by side 12 gauge that was my first ever gun but which the manufacturers name escapes me right now. (it would take me about 10 minutes to go and look involving bunches of keys and several types of loft ladder!) Cheers Chris

    Well, being as though I am kind of a low speed - high drag sorta guy, I still like the bolt actions the best of all.
