I have a question in reference to a survival plan for myself and my family. Rabbits and squirrels are fairly plentiful in my part of the country, and I have been considering buying an air rifle of some sort for this kind of small game. Is this a viable or advisable option? Here's my thinking: 1) They're light. 2) They're quiet. 3) Ammunition is even cheaper than .22LR. 4) No powder to get wet. 5) Ammunition is small and easy to transport and store. I hope that this is the right spot for this question. I ran a search, but got an error, so I couldn't find a thread where it had been discussed. Does this seem like a viable option? From what I've seen (which isn't very much on this issue), I could buy a whole bunch of .22LR rounds for the cost of a good air rifle alone, so I don't know if it would make sense to buy one. Thoughts?
