Re: Glass or Gun

why do you want glass? Why not traditional fixed sights? What is your purpose? In a zombie world you probably won't be using a scope much at all exp with a 30-30. Most take downs would be 25-100 yards, if not less. On my 30-30 I have raised scope rings so I can use both fixed sights and a scope zero...

Re: Gas anyone thought of barter items

I imagine the best barter items will be books that teach a trade. You can loan those books like a library for goods and services. Or you can teach classes on those skills you learn from your books. example: how to make wine/beer/liquor.. how to reload ammo.. how to trap game, how to sew/mend/stitch....

It kicked a lot less than I imaged a .44 to kick. I shot both .44 specials and .44 mags. Of course the mags kicked a bit more but they...

Agreed with main points.. plus back when I was shooting paintball and just starting out I had this pump paintball gun as well as a couple of semi-autos.. Everyone would get 50 rounds for some 10 on 10 warfare games.. 3 shot kills. Almost every-time one of the other guys was up against me in the end,...
