I would recommend buying a IZSL-332A from legion arsenal out of Hallandale Beach, FL it's a great video. check out my video review on www.youtube.com/fivefourfiveX39 , that's my channel do a lot of gun reviews. When SHTF a crossbow will only be dead weight get a Kalashnikov

Yeah, IF the SHTF...

A crossbow makes a lot less noise, and folds down for carry.

Lost bolts can be a pain, though. For practical purposes, all

things considered, I'd be inclined to probably take a crossbow,

if I had a large supply of bolts and a few bowstrings.

True, less noise but I doubt you will find ammo easy enough when every store and business will be over not to mention that it being silent will not matter when you become engaged by the enemy, it may fold but plenty of kalashnikov's have folding stocks and the profile of a AK is a lot smaller in its dimensions/profile , in order to make a crossbow more concealable you would have to dismantle the string branches and put the string in a storage area on the body somewhere... But a crossbow would be good in terms of hunting game when food will become scares. But a bolt will not penetrate there body armor which will be LVL.4 with SAPI plates and you would have to be very close to them to even have a chance of accurately hitting your target. GOD BLESS
