That's funny, I've never found my bolt-guns boring. Now muzzleloaders, THOSE can be boring, especially since you spend more time cleaning than shooting! I won't say that I can shoot just as fast with my CZ as I can with my Marlin, but for aimed fire the difference really isn't that great at my skill level. Maybe for guys who are really fast at target acquisition it matters more.
