Yeah, thinking I should give in on the idea of this concept working. Just wanted to get some views on strategies in dealing with such things as the undead rising. Dealing with people has just been covered to death. And the last thing I'd want is to be taken as another mall ninja or katana fiend. I d...

The whole challenge of hitting a zombies brain is kinda taken out of context when you have a tank, so I think we'll be alright.

MRE Recepies.

I know of 'Ranger Pudding'. Anyone else got any tasty recepies that can be made with MREs, K-rations, those sort of things? I know products like Mountainhouse are practically a gourmet meal compared to the military versions, but are there ways so even mildly satasfy the pallette with mil-spec?

I already own one of the tactical five-gallon helmets, and it has worked very well for me. Along with another bucket cut down for a standing tactical neck-guard, and two halves (lengthwise) as tactical shoulder pauldrons. Ive cut strips from them, tactically of course, and employed them as shin, cal...

Re: Gas under the Tonneau Cover or Camper Shell?

Ok, this all got me thinking about the gas thing. I have a tonneau(sp?) cover on my truck. Should I avoid keeping gas in the back because of the cover or is it not a big deal? You should be fine storing them under the tonno cover. I kept a 5-gal can in the back of my truck, and had no trouble on th...

Issue of weight in knives.

I have this knife o mine. Got it from a flea market (not a sword stand, just a regular person), has no foundry name on it, but is a pretty good blade. The only thing Ive noticed about it is that it feels pretty heavy. Its got a healthy 10 inch blade and an ample handle with full tang that fits my mi...

Thick carpet with the fuzzy side in can make anti-bite light armor. Just for note, it works in small areas on the body, or very cold climate, but running around with it will make you overheat like crazy. As far as anti-bite armor, Im sticking with my old football armpads. The kind that extend from ...

I do not own a firearm, and cannot see myself owning one any time soon, other than for heirloom collection. A gun is about a hundred times better than the next best thing. I'd make points here, but I really started this thread of hopes of getting good ideas for tactics in dealing with zeds, using f...

Well, I might actually have to get me a lovely bunch of coconuts and test this new one I stumbled upon. Found a broken canoe oar by the river where I hike. Has half the paddle missing. Im curious to see if it would crush a coconut with either a swinging strike with the blade, stab with the blade, or...

Well, it all depends exactly what environment your dealing in. The tried-and-true combo is always a good machete and hatchet. If youre very sensitive about extra weight, I would just stick with the hatchet. Shop around your local hardware and camping stores to find something you can use comfortably ...

I might have to alter my BOV choice, or...

Good points Shmerlin. In a high threat, perticularly close quarters or urban environment, the 'leap frog'/'move and cover' tactic is undoubtedly the best way to go. Also, in the case of especially dense woodland, the formation will have to be broken up, probably favoring either the coulumn or line a...

Well, lets examine the facts. Im guessing youre planning on visiting a major city in Japan?

Unfortunatley, given how tightly packed people get in Japans metr...

I would like to throw in my bid to filter all weapons which are retained in the hand, and used to strike at a member of the newly undead community down to two headings. Pointy Sticks and Heavy Things. I beleive all items previously slotted to 'hand to hand', 'melee', or 'ninja' will pretty much fit ...

This is just a wild supposition on my part - and I could be wrong - but even after you explain your "spikes"...I don't think it will all suddenly make sense. Unless they have telephone cord wrapped around the handle... I guess you never considered a suppressor for "quiet" kills? Firearm mods are ac...

Re: 4-Man Formations

So where are my flaws? ...me, with my spikes... You answered your own question.

I like it, but the shape of the spike just worries me about potential sticking, and it might not be long enough to guarentee a kill with every crush. However, it does re-firm a concept idea I had a while back for a similar shaped weapon, only using one of the steel reenforced fiberglass axe handles,...
