    What would be really nice is a high efficiency sound loudener for the PTRS and PTRD anti tank rifles or beter yet the gloriously absurd RES with all of its 70mm of armor penetration.

    Pistols generally are not much use except for very close in self defence... it is a knife which can outreach any knife.

    A pistol is better than a knife, but most people are rather surprised how much more effective a knife is over fists... knives should not be under estimated...

    But a SMG is vastly better than a pistol... and an assault rifle means you can kill targets out to about the distance you would probably be able to see them.

    A bolt action or semi auto full calibre rifle is probably more powerful than you need normally unless the target is big and heavy in which case pistol bullets and low power assault rifle bullets can't penetrate deep enough to do any serious damage on heavy targets.

    The choice of the correct bullet and the correct calibre and firearm can make an enormous difference.

    My uncle passed away a few years ago and he left me his mauser action 270... the Swedish company who made it now make Lawn mowers and gardening equipment.

    My favourite rifle is probably my 1938 Mosin carbine, but the muzzle blast and muzzle flash is pretty fierce...

    I bought a 44 carbine that was in terrible condition for parts that I ended up putting a suppressor on and it is excellent... you can safely fire it without ear protection and it is much more comfortable to fire.
