I think that this is the time to review options for practical weapons to use for both food gathering ( hunting ) and self defense. I assume that firearms using smokeless powder and ammunition WILL NOT be available. What are your plans ?

Obviously we are all using pseudonyms so that we can’t be traced by big brother?
In descending order of effectiveness but increasing order of accessibility:
1.Black powder rifle /pistol
2 High powered PCP air rifle with manual air pump, not powered compressor!
3. High powered PCP air pistol with manual air pump
5. Recurved archery bow
8 Knives both hand and throwing
9 Shepherd staff sling
12 punji trap
— plus knowledge how to make black powder from scratch , how to mould lead slugs for the guns. Alternatives are smooth bore black powder rifles with pebbles, steel or tin can scrap
These are just random thoughts.
My plan is to use what I have, no more no less.
NONE of it includes black powder.
I was making BP and casting bullets before your parents were born.
I was making my own bullet molds at age 16.
The only one of your list that I come close to owning is #10.
Have about a dozen of them, they are called bayonets, each has a home for attachment to.
Are you in France or Switzerland?
I guess you don't know the patriotic people of this country,
If all the guns and ammo owned by us were piled on the island of Guam it would sink.
Just ask that congressman.

Anyone that has not been planning, acquiring and stocking weapons/firearms and ammo all of the time leading up to now, is foolish and deserves what they get.
