If there was ever a zombie Apocalypse then a bow and crossbow would be my choice of weapon. Ammo in guns can go scarce if you don't know how to make bullets.



lol So I guess there will be no trees but plenty of PVC ???

I'm more interested in how to easily/quickly make string and arrowheads.

For a spear all we need is a knife taped to a stick. That is until homeland security confiscates them.

Watching Survivorman you can survive off raw weeds and insects just fine, everything else is a just a matter of comfort and taste.

I made a couple of these a few months ago and they are awesome.You can get the 55 inch bowstring on amazon for 10 bucks and for the fiberglass rod you can use a 4 foot fiberglass reflective driveway stake found at home depot or lowes for 2 bucks.With the 3/4 and 1/2 inch pvc this bow costs about $25 bucks.I also make the arrows out of oak dowels sharpened with a carving knife and I make the feathers out of colored duct tape.The arrows will run you about $1.50 each.The bow has a draw of about 55lbs and it is definitely not a toy.One more thing,be sure to unstring the bow after use so it doesn't lose its draw power.

The whole rifle breaks down and fits into its own stock, is about 16 inches long and fits nicely into a bugout bag. Plus 22 ammo is cheap and you can carry a lot of it. It also supposedly floats when packed into the stock.
Ruger makes a nice one as well.

Well worth the 200 bucks imo.
