Here is a HELL of a good argument for having a "silent" meat taking gun
 
Everyone has a basic idea of what they need for their version of SHTF. Recently Lady Samples posted a very thought provoking thread about it.

One of the things that is often overlooked is the ability to hunt or take meat quietly without setting all the birds in two counties into flight and holding up a neon sign that says "HERE I AM".

Found a nifty little piece of history today and thought I would share it with you all as "food" for thought.

Anschutz actually makes good hunting air rifles speaking of

Dillinger 02-25-2011 06:50 PM

And the Lady knows her air rifles. ;)

Anschutz has been turning out some excellent quality air rifles, air pistols, & shotguns for like 150 years. Something like that. Top quality stuff and not cheap, but worth the investment.

Good History
 
Dillinger: Sir, what a story. I didn't have any idea. Thanks for sharing ''history'':)

Thank you for sharing. I learned something new today.
I like my pellet gun for rabbit. Works fine.

Nobody would hear you if you were picking berries and depriving bears of vital forage. :D

Check out the air arms S410 .22. Had one for years. Deadly on bunnies at 60 yards, legal in UK at up to 12 ft lbs. Good for 60 shots on one charge. Can be modded up to 40 ft lbs. Not that I would ever attempt this as it is not legal :rolleyes:

PCP (pre charged Pneumatics) can be quite powerful (deer hunting)- but not really quiet.

Have an old Sheridan Blue Streak in 5mm that will drop a squirrel at 45 yards. CCI CB Longs are about as quiet as a well suppressed rifle. Braided metal fishing line leader also makes very good small game snares.

My crossbow is probably louder than an air gun but not near as loud as a rifle.
