Episode 101 – “What is the difference between a single shot and semi-automatic firearm?”

In this very first episode of Guns Explained, Davis County Sheriff Todd Richardson explains the difference between single shot, semi-automatic, and fully automatic guns. The different types of actions out there are not well understood by those who aren’t immersed in gun culture, but the differences between them are essential to understand in order to rationally discuss firearm policy.

We also take some time to head up to the shooting range and demonstrate these different types of actions on the field.
