bolt guns have far less moving parts which makes them more reliable and accurate since thier tollerances are tighter

i never saw any precision built lever actions but i know that there are some precision semi-autos that are comperable to bolt guns... generally semi-autos made just as accurate as bolt guns cost more
still i whole heartedly believe that my Bushmaster Varminter (an accurized AR-15) which retails for $1245 for accuracy at 100-200y cant be beat by a bolt gun for the same price but im sure that a few on this site will disagree with that

I'm not going to jump in too deep on this one, as the last gas gun I shot wasa an M-16A1 back in 1980 (and they were pretty much a huge POS). I will say that in addition to fewer moving parts, bolt guns tend to be more rigid which also contributes to accuracy.

They make some really tight shooting gas guns these days, and they can probably hold there own at shorter ranges, maybe out to 400 or 600 yards. But if you have the need to extreme precision for a long shot (say beyond 800 yards) I believe that you are currently looking at a bolt gun for that shot.

Theres a button On the side of the bus he presses to open the doors.

There are also 2 (one open one close) right above the door INSIDE, so he just presses it and hops off.
