Make that a can on a 223 auto, and the range can be 300 yds, altho the sonic crack of the first shot will tell you that someone fired, it won't tell you where they are "laid up". Anybody who "thinks' that they are "bugging in" for shtf, just doesn't know the score.
So you would take a head shot at 100 yards with a subsonic 22 long rifle round and really expect that would kill them??

And nothing like that can ever happen if you but out into the woods eh? Just when you choose to stay in your place where you have walked the land every day for God knows how long. You're a real operator with all the answers aintcha there fella...?

Check out the Bible verse from Adam & Eve...

Genesis 3:10
And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

Your question was why is it named that. I would be surprised if the Bible verse wasn't the source. Man & woman naked is obvious to anyone to be Adam & Eve, so I'm sure someone at Discovery would have read the chapter and that contributed to help naming the show.
