I didn't think of that and it's a pretty good idea, thanks.

I have a 22 caliber spring air pellet rifle. They are accurate and fairly powerful. At 10 meters it will penetrate a 3/4" pine board. Mine will definitely take out a bunny. They are ammo sensitive so try several different brands. Gamo makes one with a silencer and it is legal as it is not a firearm. It takes them about 50-100 rounds to get quiet when they are new. The higher velocity in the 177 are harder to silence. There are some expensive ones that you pump up which are very quiet and will give multiple shots on a charge. Add some snares or mouse/rat traps to that kit.

It's actually not a bad idea (except the c02 part) some of the hundred dollar ones are kick ass much quieter than a .22 but only good for birds and other small game but its still food although I do recommend getting a real firearm

Forget about co2 or Charged pneumatic a good spring air will easily take rabbits out to 30 yards. It is as just as quite the others without a sound moderator. Also you won't need to pre-charge the rifle or carry co2 cartridges around with you just pellets.
