Thanks for your comments Warrigal and Keith, as I do appreciate them and it's given me much to think about. I never thought of a hand gun as a hunting tool. It's been a while since I've read through our countries gun laws, but I was wondering if we are allowed to buy silences for hand guns? I did a quick google and I found this:
"Silencers are a contentious subject in Australia, with the Government refusing to reclassify them so that they are not prohibited weapons. ... A 'good' silencer is going to reduce noise by 30 db. and when firing supersonic ammunition, it many reduce noise to a point where hearing protection is no longer needed.Jul 19, 2018"
I've never held a hand gun of any kind, much less fired one. I would be willing to give it a go at the local firing range with professional coaching. If it works out and I am allowed to purchase one with a silencer, then I would still be able to hunt food on my property without anyone hearing me further away. Such a weapon would also provide me with much needed personal protection. I will be looking into women's purpose built rifles like the Weatherby Vanguard Camilla with a scope.
I really hate the kickback from the larger guns, which leaves me with a very painful right collarbone for days afterwards. This is why I've felt that guns wouldn't be so great for me in a war-like survival scenario. I gave up these old double barrel ones in the gun amnesty, as they weren't registered nor was there much chance they ever could be.
