Another consideration is the fact that some lever guns, like the All Weather, don’t have a manual safety. On a Henry, the hammer acts as the only manual safety. If the rifle isn’t fully cocked, it can’t fire. Once that hammer is cocked and a round is in the chamber, it’s ready to go. To decock the rifle, the shooter must hold the hammer back with the thumb, pull the trigger and then release it, and lower the hammer. This is something else that requires practice and training to perform reliably and safely.
