Re: NO body armour for me

My two cents is this, any armor worth wearing is heavy and cumbersome. Long ago I adopted a simple policy, shoot them in the crotch or face just in case if the option is available. Also, only actual hard plates stand a chance against a rifle round.

Re: LA K12 Puma Semi Auto Shotgun

Notice that its not only a Chinese design...but actually manufactured/made in China. On the one hand I am a bit distrustful with Chinese design and manufacturing in something like a firearm for overseas civilians, and I dislike that the "Made in China" Label is on almost everything, but I am also a...

Re: LA K12 Puma Semi Auto Shotgun

Very cool shotgun. I look forward to hearing reviews when they appear so I guess someone has to bite the bullet and pick on up first. Could be a good replacement for the SAIGA which I think is still on O-beezy's non-import list. Its in the same cost band as a Saiga, looks much cooler and is a stock...

Re: Robinson Arms XCR : Something Different

They are popular in Canada due to the reason you list but there are as many people who have serious issues with them as like them. For a firearm that costs $2400 north of the 49th I'm not sure I'ld take a risk on one. Instead I'ld probably go Tavor TAR21 if I wanted to invest that kind of money in a...

Re: LA K12 Puma Semi Auto Shotgun

I'd be interested in learning more--*if* they make 8 or 10 round magazines for it. That page just mentions a 5 round mag. :? I doubt this would make it south of the 49th as it is a Chinese design and in Canada semi automatic center fire long arm magazines are limited to five shots. So the five roun...

I agree, it just hit the market yesterday so there aren't even any reviews of it yet.

Re: Modern Hunting Rifle

If this new rifle took more readily available M14 magazines the interest would be much larger I think, if AR10 clones can be made to feed from the M14 magazine than this one could have as well.

Re: BUDGET Zombie Firearms

I'm not going to open up the can of worms here, but I'll just point out that most terms with the word "energy" in them, like muzzle energy, and energy trasfer (or dump), are often a bit misconstrued into a very singular and defined factor IMO. They tend to be overused "pop" words. There are many ot...

Re: BUDGET Zombie Firearms

As for new Russian ammo coming out using .308 bullets. Maybe they are using smaller bullets to make sure no one gets a kabboom trying to fire a .311 bullet down a barrel thats actually .308. That was my thinking too. I'll bet American made AK barrels are all .308. Might be some combloc one are too?...

Re: BUDGET Zombie Firearms

For a SHTF gun, on a REALLY tight budget, I would say a 12 or 20 ga shotgun. My preference would be a single shot if you are super hard up for cash, or a pump. You can get either new or used, depending on budget. I would get a pump then get some professional training. Which is probably easier to fi...

Re: Is the Tomahawk a Useful PAW Implement?

You kind of have to get used to using them. Machetes hack, axes chop, tomahawks peck . If you insist on using it like an axe, get an axe, or a tomahawk that is really just an axe on a removable poll, like the CS pipe, frontiersman or rifleman's hawks. A good tomahawk easily does 80-90% of the work ...

Re: BUDGET Zombie Firearms

Another option that I haven't seen come up yet is the Kel-tec Sub-2000. Unfortunately, they seem to fly off the shelves faster than people can find them. My Dad lucked out and picked one up in Texas last year. Can't remember what he paid for it, but it was under $400. Nifty little gun for what it i...

Re: BUDGET Zombie Firearms

1975 Romanian M43, 1985 Polish M43 and new production Barnaul all check out right around .308. I discovered it when I grabbed a surplus 7.62x39 round to check the bore of a nice looking Mosin Nagant 91/30 and it swallowed the bullet but there was no way the crown was very worn at all. Russian SKS ce...

Re: BUDGET Zombie Firearms

I slugged my Mosin bore and it checks in at .314. All my ammo is .307-.308. And the thing needs to be sighted in properly. I finally laid my hands on some PB Blaster to maybe loosen the front sight. I probably need a sighting device too. Something that will break it loose and move it. Which means t...

So, like many people, i am stuck on a tight budget. Does anyone here know of good quality budget firearms? My pick would be a Mosin Nagant M91-30. Sorry if this has been posted before.

Re: Is the Tomahawk a Useful PAW Implement?

I"ll have to go into more detail at some time but in short: Yes, a tomahawk is useful in a PAW. Is it the best eva? No. Are they great for fighting? Hawks made for fighting are pretty handy. Hawks made for wood are less handy for fighting. But on wood, I prefer a hatchet or axe. Or chainsaw. If you...

Re: Is the Tomahawk a Useful PAW Implement?

I like the Cold Steel Pipehawk, it can easily do almost everything an axe of the same size/wieght class can. For winter I want a full size axe tho. Usually a Fiskars X7 lives in my kit, way more useful than any large knife, easier to take care of and almost as good as a small knife for detail work. ...

Re: BUDGET Zombie Firearms

That degree of variation alone would be enough to keep me from recommending a heavy rifle of questionable manufacture as a budget rifle, with used or even new stuff in the $175-$300 range in the US. The ammo might not be as cheap, but it won't be corrosive FMJ and you won't have to learn how to han...

Re: BUDGET Zombie Firearms

Some early Msoin Nagant will still slug .308-.310 but most later Russians slug .310-312. That isn't to say that during the war years shortcuts weren't taken! I once owned a 1942 that had a barrel that was quit a bit heavier than the norm because they didn't machine it down as much as they should.
