Single shot vs Repeater?

When I was a kid they like to use the word REPEATER for any gun that had more then one bullet in the magazine.. Even a 22 rimfire bolt action was a repeater..

I do like to use single shots but there are times I also like to use a repeater...Chuck hunting and hunting predators at night I like the single shot..Now over snow when you don't need a light that when I like to use a repeater for predators..Could be a shotgun semiautomatic or a pump shotgun vs the single shot. I do like single shot rifles and shotguns at night for safety reason.. Sometimes I hunt with other hunters at night... That when I feel better having new predator hunters use a single shot on a dark night..(Safety)

I could never see owning let say a 35 Rem in an Encore barrel.. I would rather have the firepower of a lever or pump when I use this caliber.. even the 4570... I would rather have the firepower instead of using a single shot for this caliber..Now...change the caliber to a 2506 and I would rather have a single shot for deer instead of the repeater..
I once let a relative use one of my single shot Encores for deer...Kind of felt bad..He missed the deer with the single shot had he let say his Rem 7600 6MM He probably would have killed that buck since it sure did not make as hasty retreat.. However it was enough to get away since he was using a single shot that day..

I like both actions.. I choose based on terrain, animal being hunted, time of hunt night or day, and the caliber..
Maybe I think of the 4570 as a bear gun so hence my reason why you should use a repeater not a single shot 4570?????
