What types of silent weapons have you stored for SHTF?

17 posts in this topic

I've some aside if needed.

Sling shots & ball bearings.

Throwing knives.

Bows & arrows.

A 22 pellet gun that's 760 FPS.

Any firearm that uses ammo that brakes the sound barrier, is a big NO! 

In my area we can't own silent sirs. for firearms, do to by-laws.

So what do you have to not attract attention.

Sling shots, extra surgical tubing, leather pads, marbles-really cheap at thrift and dollar stores, LOTS of .177 caliber pellets, (pointed and hollow point), and a few other "odds and ends" which for OPSEC shall remain unannounced.

Another fun and useful toy is an adapter that will turn a sling shot into a sling bow. I made mine out of a ring cut off the end of a 1.5" pvc coupler. It has the beveled end facing the shooter. I drilled two tiny holes on each side and then attach it with wire or zip ties to the U of the sling shot. Using a leather punch I put two holes in the pouch such that the nock fits through the OO little strap in the middle. You know, it surprised me with the power. It is plenty for bunnies, squirrels, frogs and fish.

 

I plan on adding a bunch of 80lb mono wires through the ring in the future to center and support the arrow to improve accuracy but even as is I can hit cans and such from 40' or so pretty easily. The ring itself weighs nothing and is easily installed so it is a nice addition to a slingshot accessory kit.

wrist rocket type using cast lead shot a couple of them and I have some extra tubing stored in vaccum sealed bags I purged them with nitrogen from a friends wire feed welder and then vac sealed them air breaks down rubber quickly.

 

I have a few bullet molds from #1 #4 buck  #00 #000 and #0000  I think the #00 and #000 are the best for myself

looking at the friends across the oceans the power bands and home made catapults are terrific some of the videos on youtube are very impressive I think I may try to build a few I have some stabilized epoxy plywood and the smaller versions look very nice.

 

Some information I once read rates a lead shot can be fired at velocities equal or past  to some of the older large rimfire

loads of the early 1900's and with the better designs and rubber it makes these even more effiencet.

the one thing I saw was a slng shot or catapult bow using a ring about 1 inch in diameter between the forks on a sling shot you can use

an arrow and take medium game as an arrow has a lot of weight and potential lethality over just a ball.

 

All of this without altering so it could not be quickly changed over  or canibalizing your sling shot to a point of destroying it.

As well you can use any type arrow home made, wood to carbon fiber, with a zebco style reel mounted on the bottom it would make a great fishing bow

A fluflu arrow and it can take birds and you can be off a bit and sitill get a fatal strike

 

a lot of this information is easily found on youtube

 

I consider only a few weapons other than firearms to be vital a spear / fishing gig a way to project lethat projectiles and the bow is great but here

it is far from handy to carry a compound bow is great until it breaks a part and or you run out of arrows made to take the force of a compound bow.

also the speed of reloading and size all goes to the catapult or sling shot adding in the arrow firing ability weight it makes the cut in all catagories.

 

Wally we have been talking about weigh of BOB's and I am in your camp I am not as young as I once was I can carry quite a bit but

for how long ? one day I will have to sit down and minimize my BOB and cache the leavings so I can continue on.

 in my area I will have to move 300 to 500 miles if on foot I know the troubles I will face and if I get down to bare minimum a sling shot will be in that

BOB as well as a spear tip & gig.

 

Arrow heads can be made in a wood mold carved with a knife and melting wheel weight lead it only takes 750 degrees to get fine pourable lead.

easily done on a camp firee, flint knapping is great but it ain't eazy and it is a tallent.

#000 buck shot single or double mold from lee and you can scavange weel weights and make it into shot and into simple flat arrow heads.

lead has very little in the way of a cutting edge. Getting a hit with an arrow is just the start. If you dont cause massive hemorrhaging in just a few minutes, your deer is going to be in the next county and by the time he dies, the coyotes and dogs will have peed alll over him.

 

melting lead over a fire takes a Dakota pit, lined with big stones, charcoal, and a way to fan the flames. Either that, or you'll need 2 ft long handles on your mould and your pouring ladle. Cause getting that close to that big a fire will fry your face.

instead, just get the "how to make a silencer" series of books from Paladin Press and Amazon (cheaper) There's one for .22lr, Mini14m and the .45 ACP 1911. Start with the .22. Once you truly understand how to make the baffles, weld in and thread the rear end-plug, make the baffle forming kit, and how to have several shops do the work for you (without knowing what it is) and half a day of your own labor, you'll have one everty bit as good as the $1000 ones that are for sale.  What you do is have a piece of tubing 6 ft long, and have a plug welded into either end. Nobody would think that you're going to cut 8" off of each end. :-)  The .22 can may be made of PVC pipe, no welder or lathe is required. the internal threading of the barrel is a very clever answer to the mounting problem.  Once you understand the process, you can make a beautifully efficent baffle in 2 minutes. The .22lr baffle takes half that long. The rear half of the baffle stack must be made of annealed copper screen wire, the front half can be made of the far more commonly found, cheaper aluminum screen.  The hi-v rifle can must have a "sleeve" tube mounted around the baffle tube. the rear 1/3rd of the baffle tube has to be stuffed with freeze plugs. that part of the baffle tube has to have holes drilled into the side of it, venting the hot gases into the "sleeve area" between the 2 long tubes. The sleeve area is filled with a wrap of copper screen wire, so as to soak up the heat energy of the gases. YOu can weld a washer into either end of the sleeve area, or you can render this area accessible with  thick washer, a couple of o rings (and matching grooves in the washer and the baffle tube) and hold in that thick washer with an internal snapring. The front baffle in the main tube is held in by a washer and a snapring, too. The main baffles are made of rectangles of single thickness screenwire (about 3"x6" for the .22lr) fold them into 1/3rd wide strips, lengthwise, Spindle them on a rod that's .026" larger in OD than your bullet. (22lr) and more like .080" larger than your 223 or other hi-v rifle bullet. The screen is then crushed by a mallet blow, between the "piston of the baffle-forming kit, and the washer that is pinned across the head of your shaping rod, all done inside of the "'cylinder" (a  4" long hunk of the same size tubing as your baffle-tube.) make a baffle, remove it from the cylinder and stack it in the baffle tube. repeat until the tube is full, install the front washer and snapring.  for the hi-v rifle, you have to swage open the freeze plugs, so that they have a tight fit inside of the tube. If you do not do this, the hammer blows of shots will compress the screenwire "donut" baffles and then you'll have your freeze plugs sliding around making noise each time you raise or lower the gun.

about 20 states wont let you have a silencer, and the Feds get a $200 tax and a background check on you in the other 30 states. Or you'll be looking at a 10 year stay in prison, for EACH silencer that you make, and each rifle whose barrel you shorten below 16". and each full auto that you create. Once shtf, tho, no law will mean anything. You can get nearly all of the work done, scatter/bury the parts and materials, and if any of them are found, it wont mean a thing, legally.  best not bury on your property, tho, or leave any prints on anything.  A threaded barrel is not illegal. a tube with a plug welded into it is not illegal (as long as it's not threaded)  It's not illegal to have screenwire, or a baffle forming kit,  neoprene  orrubber and steel washers for making the compartmentalizing parts, nor the kid's pointed paper scissors for cutting the screen wire.  The rear half of the can gets too much heat and blast for aluminum screen to withstand, and the copper screen has to be annealed before it will take and retain the formed shape of the baffle. This annealing is easily done on a gas kitchen stove, or with a propane torch.

 

there is no need for the sleeve-tube on a .22lr "can".  The area of the hi-v rifle can with the freeze plug stack in it, has to have holes drilled into the sides of the baffle tube, so that the hot gases can be vented. a well fit plastic tube, slid down inside of the baffle tube, will hide those vent holes from the welder. Just on general principle, when I'm making a working model of my "patented" idea, I use several shops, to make one piece each, and I dont park where any of them might see my license plate

icepick is a good way to get shot. Counting on getting close enough for either one is foolhardy. A Marlin Papoose with 8" of barrel and 6" of silencer, with a telescoping buttstock lets you get into position without being noticed, and can brain a man from 30 yds, easily enough.

I am, but almost nobody wants to spend that sort of money.  A properly set up AR is nearly $2000, even if you do build your own silencer.  For the cheapskates, a silenced .22lr autorifle, which takes down easily, is the next best option. and frankly, not one in 1000 men knows enough for more than the .22 to make any difference.

    • I appreciate the videos P210sig. I feel I need to express that we are no longer in Kansas anymore what was even 10 years ago is NOT now all of us are being survieled, the Internet was given away the SHADOW government is willing to start a civil war and kill Americans and yet the lame stream media is still got their ligs glued to their azz. It has been stated by insiders that the news can no longer be controlled by the deep state and that they are scared out of their minds that Internet news like Drudge Report  Infowars people like Roger Stone and a handful of American patriots like Navy Seals that have broken out on the Internet there are ex agents who have like a deer in headlights realize that they were manipulated and used to surrender our sovereignty to a global government, Funny thing is the U.N. thinks they are the one and they are just as clueless as everyone else, Once the deep state takes the helm this ship of fools will find that the real powers think this ship is a submarine and take her to the bottom.  War is a means to an end and the end is to depopulate the citizens (kill off Americans) breed disillusionment foster anger and futility among the population and divide and conquer using race, financial disparity, and age.  They are trying to kill us all Amrica is the ONLY country that can fight off globalism the one world order and devolving into a muslim anarchy.  The muslims think they are going to rule the U.N. thinks they got it and our deep state thinks they have it and reality is none of them do.  It seldom happens but people that wear themselves out fighting the wrong people are weakened to a point they can not fight at all and are easily taken over. Here is the problem with being a socialist Marxist Leninist Stalinist, Maoist Che' Geverra follower or an atheist or agnostic --- YOUR BLIND TO THE PROBLEM and that is there is nothing new under the sun PERIOD ! when people become arrogant and greedy the next and only step is EVIL and in order to maintain power and wealth they will lie steal and murder anyone who gets in their way and they always have toadies will to lick their shoes and one day kill them off and take the reigns of power and be as or more brutal than the b@stard or wh@re before them. Here is a news flash Venezuela is listed as 63 of the world most fragile countries LMAO there are 62 WORSE ? Guatemala is 61 Honduras 68 Nicaragua 71 Bolivia 75 ????? LOOK OUT WE America destabilized these countries interfered in their governments and now they are all leaning toward socialism or a variant if we do no wall up our border the TSUNAMI of people running from civil war and events like happening in Venezuela will blow up and we will be fighting along our southern boarder !  OUR Government has as General Westley Clark stated so eloquently that our plan under Bush was to take out & middle eastern sovereign nation states and IMPOSE democracy on a people that cannot and will not understand or accept it is against their religion history and educational system PERIOD Europe is going to find out too damn late they have allowed themselves to be invaded by a hostile force it will act as if it is divided all the while usurping the vote installing leaders under the guise that they can only control understand and create organizations to help them assimilate like the muslim brotherhood LMAO etc etc etc....... If we had 100,000 immigrants that had syphilis small pox HIV un-treatable Tuberculosis whooping cough Hantavirus  and a whole litany of others including Ebola would you and I do mean YOU let them in well if your for open boarders you have and it has killed thousands of children not to mention the gangs and child molesters and rapists murderers and thieves from every nation if they are not vetted that is what vetting is for and like Ellis Island we need to see if they are harboring a FREAKIN' disease that will kill us and our children ! If you are for overthrowing a legally elected official that demands that laws already enacted be enforced up and to the letter of the law your a anarchist traitor turncoat ignorant fool and those are the least of your problems especially if your not in office because "THEY" have an agenda to use illegals of all nationalities to vote for them and if you bother to look at how they treat US how stupid are YOU to work for them.  In Houston Texas the city is planning to CUT retirement for fire fighters police ambulance and teachers by HALF and once the retiree dies the benefits to the spouse and now that includes GLBTQ spouses will get their spousal benefit CUT HALF AGAIN ! so this is a war on those that can and do most of the heavy lifting and all the dirty work while the azzholes that polish a chair with their azz and run their mouth are cutting real heroes pay checks.  The government is now going to demand that retired military veterans take retirement or disability not both and only 5 years of health care LMAO and now there are 250 organizations that take in money for veterans because our Government lied and they will cut medicare and medicaid but they got trillions to fight a never ending war and a few want to go to war with Russia on both sides of the Isle LMAO----- and that is the only damn bipartisan vote you could get a up vote on. War and Conflict obscures focus so they can rob us blind.  It is a foregone conclusion to me that the muslims are going to wipe each other out all we are doing is making money selling weapons to all sides our leader talking trash while we buy AK's and ammo and funnel it to them under humanitarian aid all the while it is a test bed for new weapons systems and spying technology !  Does anyone really think that the same government that listened into Minister Merkles the Russian ambassador's and overheard Osama Bin Ladin phone as well as Pablo Escobar's phone did not know about OH lets say the Boston incident ? even when they were given a heads up by the Russians ? how about all the rest of this sh*t people on the WATCH list and they plan and commit acts and we do not know ? REALLY ... Well get ready for censorship as the Internet is no longer in our control get ready for people to die especially those on the right in media who have the b@lls to espose and tell the truth Rodger Stone as been poisoned unsuccessfully but more recent his vehicle was T-boned ON PURPOSE. the total rage of people against Trump and their willingness to call for social unrest resist lawful authority and even undermine the 1st amendment for their own selfish  means they have state police as body guards money that we pay them to commit treason on WE THE PEOPLE, I notice Nancy Pelosi id not like it when she was heckled and shouted down at a public meeting when any group want special privilege or refuses to work together they are nobody's friend but to themselves.  
    • listen close you'll catch about a hundred CLUES as to why the world and RECENT history as we know it is a LIE
    • Their are 2 members in my shooting club that own a Desert Eagle . One in 357 & the other in 50 A&E ( Action Express ) Ive shot them both several times. They were a blast to shoot. Really liked the 50 A&E . Not for the recoil friendly that's for sure. The owner of the 50 said to me at one time that he put 20 grains of powder into one loaded cartridge that he Hand loaded.  If you ask me 20 grains of powder, that's a Shotgun load. If I ever decided to buy a Desert Eagle, the 50 cal would be the ticket.  The 50 cal DE is nicely suited to the design of the firearm if you ask me,  the 44 & 357 magnum not so much so. I've shot all 3 calibers at one time. JMHO .
    • Watching the news (really should avoid that)  but they are using Ketamine as an antisuicide medication and the user says it keeps her from committing suicide DUH and chronic pain does not make a person suicidal ?  I have friends that have had multiple surgeries to stop chronic pain some with no success or limited success. I for one feel the AMA and the FDA use less than scientific methods and allow certain doctors much more leeway to function everything can be addictive there are people who are addicted to eating laundry soap some people cut themselves or body dismorphia. IMHO it is reasonable to suspect a person is overusing medication when request for refills mount or their blood test show higher amounts than normal so we have controls I guess using an ID to track will help. Better living through chemistry I believe in it not as abuse of a drug but use to control pain and allow people to have a life, Ketamine if it is useful use it I do not see a problem with pot for people with life threatening diseases I do think as other drugs we cannot totally trust doctors because some will prescribe without care just for the money and there need to be limitations on operating vehicles people need relief but do not need to endanger others IMHO.
