That is the perfect way to describe it. Except with the HVR you've got a nice 99m gap between you and your opponent in CQC that gap ain't so nice so waiting for that bolt-action to decide when its ready is basically asking to be put on your knees.
Speaking my language, man.
I swear sometimes I shoot through enemies instead of into them or there is a slight delay in between me firing and the pellet leaving the gun. Or maybe I'm just lagging my balls off because other people say the hit reg on the Strife is really good.
All in all I regret buying the JT Strife - 2/10 because that's how many shoots I can connect in a day.
