Re: Newb Hello From Midwest

Welcome to Zombie Squad. I think you might be surprised how many people here are in your age bracket. Ah, the "realistic" BOB. I bet the author of almost every article on the subject insists that's the exact premise behind the guidance they provide. Yet you see BOBs with no less than 6 knives, and 1...

Re: Could Doomsday Bunkers Become the New Norm?

I don't know about shelters but having my own park like land to walk around on when all the parks, restaurants and entertainment venues were closed has been priceless. There is no replacement for breathing room. If I had to sit in my storm shelter all day I would be depressed. Can't argue with you ...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

If we look at some recent elections.... I think based on current events we are launching into uncharted territory here. If some people are unhappy enough we could end up with open insurrection that will make Minneapolis look tame. Yep. My greatest fear this November is a close election. Which side ...

Re: Do you like old guns but are interested in an AR?

While I am not a huge fan of the AR platform, I do appreciate beauty of craftsmanship. As I approach that fabled milestone, my better half has already committed to a Turnbull TAR10 for my 40th birthday. Fine wood and case hardened receiver - well worth a Google giggle. I'm still not quite capable o...

Re: Do you like old guns but are interested in an AR?

I know a couple people who built semi-auto side-chargers for hunting. Their reasoning: <snip> ....charge the gun, then bump the knob forward to make sure the bolt is fully in battery.....seems legit. https://i.postimg.cc/YqZctqmt/locomotive.gif So, a second forward assist, then? :lol: Seriously tho...
