All the more reason to shoot a bolt gun...
You get to control chamber dwell time by not loading rhe chamber and closing the bolt until a few seconds before you are ready to fire.
Those damn magazine-fed autoloaders make the assumption that you are firing quickly as they put a new round in the chamber right after you fire each round!
