Re: Shotguns - The most overrated weapon for zombies

I have to disagree, but we should agree to disagree. Firstly a lot, like 90% of your post talked about zombies in a "Dawn of the Dead" sense. Now a lot of us zombies preppers actually use the term zombies as an end all end of the world event. Those of use who do believe in zombies believe in a more...

Re: Please explain the use of wilderness gear in a BOB

You're given reasons as to why people carry camping gear in their bobs and it seems like you just want to dispute it all. I have a EDC pack in my car that has things I would need in case my car breaks down and I had to walk to a town or something. I have a pack for if my house catches on fire and I ...

Re: Please explain the use of wilderness gear in a BOB

I have wilderness gear because I am going to bug out into the woods. You are on the ZOMBIE hunter forums, the idea of being a zombie prepper is that you are preparing for the WORST CASE scenario. Not that you will have a power out for a week and have to go visit your family in the next state. Do you...

Re: The ABSOLUTE most important things in a BOB

I play it by the rule of what do we as humans need to survive. 1. Water. You can go weeks without food. You'll only live a few days without water so that is most important. Now I don't mean JUST water, but things to purify water with, to gather it in and so on. Having redundancy ways to get safe cle...

Re: What does it take for you to lockdown?

Unfortunately, in any "normal" home, there is no "lockdown." Any house is a sledgehammer and 15 minutes away from being busted in to. Unless they come in through a door, window, or the roof, nobody will be getting into my house in 15 minutes. My home is not stick framed. The walls of my house are m...

Re: How would you bug out if you only had the regular things

My mother and father weren't preppers, but they were baby boomers and because of the era they grew up in they always kept a weeks worth of food and water. Once our town almost flooded and we had to grab everything and hightail it out of our house and to a safe location. So we grabbed all our food, c...

Re: Carbon Removal tools. Which one if any?

I personally don't see the need in them. I just clean with a rag and leave it as that. I've never had a problem in doing so. If you want to get one and use it for piece of mind, go for it. It is your money after all.

Wonder why the increased interest? What is making people who never had firearms want them now? Are they mostly "group-thinkers" who've been misled?

Re: Hey Whats A Better Survival Rifle 30-06 or .308

I got a mossberg 30-06 for $100ish. Some may laugh at the rifle, but I trust mossberg products and it has served me well. It shoots dead on at 1,000 yards. Not sure about past that since its the exactly how long our local range is. My dad has also used it to hunt a few times and he's always dropped ...

So, although venom isn't poison, it's probably still safer not to eat it. No, It's probably safer to take the entire thing off the menu. http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n220/Daytraderwon/Camp2/100_5941.jpg Venom is completely safe to digest.

Are you allowed to use AR's to hunt? I am more of a bow hunter and you're not allowed to have any guns on you at all or you can get a big nasty fine. Not even a revolver or anything for defense against bears/mountain lions. I do however know someone with a ranch, I never thought about that! Thanks ...
