This is what I use:


I fire .25 caliber rounds through it. The sound it makes is certainly I lot less than say a pistol with a .22 caliber round. You can barley hear the cash special from 50 meters away. Using it sounds like a black cat (firecracker) going off. Overall, the sound is much less than a .22 pistol. Perhaps a little louder than a balloon popping. Not much more.

If possible, go to a processing plant and ask if you can listen to one.

If you have mental problems should you even have access to a captive bolt gun ?
or a car, rope ,knifes, chems, pills etc etc
I have PTSD and loud noises effect me even the gasping noise or letting the water out of the bath to wind at night can take me back to a event that effected me
it was a simple thing someone was snoring and stopped breathing then gasped for air a few times done it a few nights in a row for years been on edge with it. then all the what if questions come flooding in
it sucks but I cope

Maybe the only way to know @JD-Kid, is to see if you can borrow one from somewhere and give it a go

I had a hell of a flinch develop from longrange rifle shooting with big bore rifles and the CB guns don't even register as 'a shot' to me - but I know that's different to PTSD, although maybe The Flinch is a mild type of the same thing? 🤷‍♂️

From what I can remember, they are quite quiet when new and everything's tight

I think you'd be alright with a captive bolt, they don't make much noise. Put a pair of ear defenders on when using it to be on the safe side?

Update on the Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot

Written by Lisa Applin

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
