[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0Njg2NTE3X0RGRDVDMzc0] A pellet/bb gun for quiet small game hunting The vast majority of hunting post-collapse will be taking small game. After firing even one shot, the relatively loud sound will alert many creatures you're hunting. This means less of a chance for a second shot. Firing many shots will allow other people to triangulate your position. An economical means of small game hunting is to use a Crosman Classic 2100 Air rifle. It's pumped for the shot, not charged with a CO2 cannister. It can fire pellets or bbs, but of course each will have their own ballistics. It is relatively quiet. They cost ~$60-70 US. A bb will probably not do anything but sting an animal. You need special pellets, and you can only hunt as long as you have them. “But you'll shoot your eye out...” A Christmas Story 1983 [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YleZvTSDC6s[/youtube] Had to say it before someone else commented.... These air rifles are very light weight and will hold up reasonably well. Yes, game animals can be trapped, but squirrels are not dumb, and you'll make mistakes when de-scenting and baiting the trap, and often they'll get away. Sometimes you see one, or a rabbit, or a pigeon in the early morning sitting very still, and it's not that difficult to take one, as many a young person has discovered. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THclcV-KcQg[/youtube] Of course, this is not a regular rifle, and you can't take large game with them since it doesn't have much take down power from the small mass and velocity. While it can fire very far based upon high elevation, without a scope, you can only expect 25 yard accuracy unless you practice a lot. It does produce around 5 ft-lbs of energy to knockdown not penetrate the creature. (Multiple strokes of pumping). The video talks about having ~10 ft-lbs of energy to take down a rabbit or squirrel such that they don't suffer. There's wisdom to that. More energy 10-30 ft-lbs might be needed for larger game. A Crosman Titan GP .22 Caliber Air Rifle will develop up to 12 ft-lbs. Do some research. Like all postings, this is a springboard for you to consider and discover more about the subject http://www.airgununiverse.net/huntairguns.html Dave Canterbury of the Pathfinder school likes the Crosman Phantom 1000 Air Rifle, however they are out of stock and you could only purchase one used in all probability. They retailed for ~$150 US (used about $80) [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iO9XHKI2J4w[/youtube] A long article about them: http://www.survivalblog.com/2010/08/pellet-rifle-hunting-by-dm.html The manuals in pdf form: http://www.crosman.com/pdf/manuals/2100-OM3.pdf http://www.crosman.com/pdf/manuals/BWNP-515.pdf [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
