Someone explain to me why bolt action is more accurate than semi auto.

Mostly because the parts in a semi-auto are moving before the bullet leaves the barrel of the rifle. The effects of those movements are transferred throughout the gun, including the barrel. There is also the issue of consistency; moving parts being less consistent than fixed, locking parts. There's still semi-autos that are incredibly accurate. In the right hands you would probably see little, to no appreciable difference. Possibly true even in the wrong hands.

I'm looking for good accuracy up to about 300yrds

Hey all...

I'm not a frequent poster on the forum but I have been browsing this thread and figured I would jump in to the gun discussion.

Anyway, down to the question...anyone have feedback/experience with the Smith & Wesson Shield? It has some positives and negatives from my original look, was just curious if anyone could share anything. Link below...

Thanks!

They are a great tool for the intended purpose. Hard to go wrong with one.

I have to say the election sucks because I went looking for a couple lowers this weekend and the price has went up about 50% on them. They are starting around 110 now 6 months ago I could get them for 70. Makes me want to grab one or two more

That's crazy about the Troy, Mo. bank president. I actually know him and found out on the r1 forum! I go to church with him and would've found out today but happened to not go. Wow, good for you Dave.

I've picked up a few over the past couple of months just in case. No FFL is required for any other part.

Which irks me. It's a rifle component. Not a full rifle.


I should pick one up myself. Unfortunately, I'm broker 'n broke so out of the budget right now.

.
That's just because its the least changed out part of an AR but can be used for a long gun or handgun style build. It's also the one part that will be regulated in further assault rifle regulations
