The superiority of the bow and arrow in certain tactical situations is demonstrated by soldiers of the US Army 19th Special Forces Group, based at Draper, Utah.

A box is filled with dirt, and shots fired into it from a M1911A1 .45 caliber automatic, a .30 caliber M1 carbine, and a .30 caliber M1 rifle.

The rifle bullet goes deepest of the firearms, but none of them penetrates the box completely.

The bow silently propels the arrow all the way through the box of dirt and out the other side.
