having a silent weapon is verry important in shtf situation when you are trying to keep from being detected. the first silent weapons that come to
mind other than melee weapons are:
AIRGUNS(high velocity1200fps and up), i have .117 and .22 the .22 packs a punch but both break the sound berrier and produce a loud crack when
fired,(there fore i almost didnt want to include it) so they are not totally silent but a homemade silencer helps it a little.
BOWS, compound, they will be harder to kill small game with than the airguns, but will work better on larger game and humans if needed,
CROSSBOWS(150-180lbs 220-400fps) they are accurate powerful, but a bit** to load, they are also bulky and take up space, i have seen foldable ones
like tis one but idk bout the ammount of power it will have and about the acuracy with foldable limbs.
i have atleast one of each, but cant decide which would be best to have in my B.O.B if i could only have one. i want something that can take rabbits
and other small game, but that can also down bigger game(deer cayotes dogs even humans if i was being threatened by other people) any ideas, point of
views, tips, or info on pros and cons in a shtf situation when total silence is needed will be apreciated
(oh, and this is my first thread
