maybe more. it's legal to hunt with FULL AUTO in Ark, ferchrissakes! :) You have to EXPERIENCE small game hunting with subsonic 22lr ammo and a silencer to appreciate the complete difference that it makes, guys. ! :) If you miss, the animal or bird normally just SITS there, letting you fire again. that is, if your bullet did not kick dirt or bark on the critter. If you kill cleanly, the other critters are not alarmed, altho a falling bird from the top of a tree will scare off others lowere on the tree. Pick off the bottom ones first. Ditto a troop of guail on the ground, shoot the rearmost one first and you can work your way to the front. For shtf, the silenced .22 is indispensable, and the best variant is a .22lr conversion unit, in a 223 autorifle, so that you have the option of power, penetration and range.

Even with full power centerfire ammo, if the range is beyond 100 yds or so, the sonic crack often does not alarm deer and other big game, sometimes the hit does not even make them flee. Bowhunters will tell you this. The issue seems to be if a rib was hit or not. Sometimes, the "hittee" will just stand there, or graze as it was doing, until it falls over from blood loss.

Kind of takes all the sport out of it huh? If I were subsistence hunting I could see it but...?
