    Pull the bolt back with the charging handle & release.

    They work like any other semi auto firearm. You will have to use the charging handle to load the first round. If you just emptied a mag, the bolt will remain open so just insert mag then press the bolt catch to chamber a round.

    you must first pull the charging handle to load the rifle each subsequent trigger pull will then fire the loaded round, eject the spent round, and load the next round in the mag until you have exhausted your mag capacity..

    OP, don't feel bad. In boot camp there was a recruit that pulled the charging handle on his M16A1 after each shot because he saw people in the movies firing-bolt action guns. It goes without saying there were a lot of live rounds laying around his foxhole.

    Which, fortunately, AR's are very easy to learn. :)
