We did the blow guns come from? What have you used them for? Why a machette on a farm? What have you used it for? Slingshots I'll give you.
Crossbow.....really? Used for what?
I knew it would be hard for folks who've never lived on a farm to understand!
#1: We bought the blowguns at a Bass Pro shop years ago. They are very accurate and very deadly. The biggest things we've killed with those are rats
and bunnies. Doesn't matter, we know they work and are deadly. Just have to shoot 'em at a bigger target.
#2 Of course a machete! We have to chop switchcane and briars and vines! We have miles of fencing for cattle that has to be maintained. But we also
use them to kill snakes and other vermin. That's what they are for, utility purposes. Once again, we know they work and are familiar with them.
#Crossbow & compound bow: Hunting, of course. My husband and son never fail to get at least one deer apiece per year with their bows. Don't you
realize there is a primitive weapons season open each year for hunters? We also have about 5 black powder rifles that are used yearly.
Really, you have to realize that there are still lote os us who live pretty closely to what our froefathers did. I love my internet and modern
conveniences, but I could survive just fine without them!
We are still the people who are raised to survive on the land. Big gardens, cows, chickens, weapons, hunting skills. We are not ignorant uneducated
people. We are college educated citizens who have never forgotten that we ourselves are responsible for our own survival!
As to that, for those who say that it's all just talk when it comes to defending our homes and property: I would advise you to tread lightly if you
come my way when TSHTF! I was raised to shoot accurately and understand that I have to stand up for my family. I don't look forward joyfully to that
time, but I know I won't puss out if called upon, either!
