He has had that up for years.
These days of dust
Which we've known
Will blow away with this new Son

But I'll kneel down wait for now
And I'll kneel down
Know my ground

I've had several SKSs over the years. Anything from Tapco-fucked and tacti-fooled to a straight box stock russian SKS and a fat box full o' clips to feed it. I hated every one. I'm not carrying a 9.5 lb rifle around if I don't have to but the reload speed has me tempted. I'd likely go with the 30-30. A 16" gun with a peep sight if I can get it and a cowboy ammo belt for all 'dem rounds. I know I shoot a 336 well enough. Follow up shots would be easier than with the Garand. The reload is what will likely make me zombie chow.

2 sks's for quick close to mid range engagements, 2 m1's for more range and precision. Each 2 can share ammo between themselves. 1 30-30 for me, preferably with a 16 inch barrel. I dont want a lot of weight and it would be good for scouting ahead. I'm pretty damn good with a lever action.

Ah sadly, the world as you know it has ended. You have been dropped into the Mad Max type wasteland (Somewhere between MM I and MMII) populated with bad guys and slow moving zombies in the State formerly known as Texas. You and your four closest friends have arrived at the local gun shop with coin in the pocket and a need for standardized long guns before you make the long trek from El Paso to Texarkana (why are you going there? IDK) in your old pickup truck. The shop keeper has a good supply and can equip you with one of three choices all in good working order with enough ammo for everyone to carry about 90 rounds each:

Older Marlin Lever Action .30-30s
Chicom SKSs
M1 Garands

The team gets together and asks everyone to rank order their choices. So what do you pick and why?
Edited: I did not realize I had posted in this thread already. Also, my opinion has changed since getting a bit more trigger time on a Garand.

Garand- Accurate, longer reach, more power, quicker reload, common caliber, & can be equipped with bayonet. On the down side- can be picky on ammo, clip dependent, can't be topped off,
Can too.

I stand corrected, thank you sir. This (and the exhibited humor) is what I love about these mental exercises.
Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it, & you can bet they'll whine that nobody warned them.

Damn Zombies. Can't ever be too dead to suit me.

SKS
GARAND
Marlin

The SKS would be my only choice out of those ,really. Mainly because I am a vagina and would not want to carry around the extra weight of the 30-06 or have to deal with the limitations of the Marlin. I am not saying the levergun is bad either, its just not something I would want if I had worry about the Thunderdome or bandits.
