Single shot rifles are a tradional-looking rifle, very minimalist. I think of it this way: they offer the benefit of simplicity that cannot be had from a repeater. Mechanically, they are fairly simple, and do not look so much like a piece of machinery as an example of gunmaker's skills and art. The difference between a single shot and a repeater of any kind is kind of like the relationship between a bolt action and an AR15. They basically say "I don't need more than one shot. How about you?"
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
