Re: Facebook & Twitter follow/likes

At work we've done our annual World Zombie Day Postings. In the past, we did a run up for the entire week and pushed out all of the ZS brochures and images.

Re: we need one of these in the US

We have a paintball zombie shoot at a haunted hayride type thing in our area. I'll try and find the details on it. The folks playing the zeds have big helmet type things on. You pay to get additional paintballs.

Re: Building a long range rifle- range or maneuverability-Re

I've been wielding the R700 VLS in .308 and it has the 26" bull barrel and the laminate varminter stock. I originally built it to do Class F. It is heavy and unwieldy in close terrain, but I love it none the less.

Re: Zamboanga, PI Muslim force attempts to take over city.

I did quite a deal of research into insurgent and terrorist groups in the Philippines in grad school. This has been slow burning for years. The Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) has had numerous losses over the years and barely exists these days. Needless to say, when I did presentations, I had a hit when I me...

Re: Mk18 vs soocom 16 EBR

I'd go with the Mk-18 as well. Lighter weight, shorter length, more ammo per weight.

I'm gonna go and throw this one out there- How about a H&K 416 or other piston upper?

And... go!

Re: Role Playing- what type of gun would you choose?

I too went with the R700 and would go with the Beretta as the #2. Drawing from my experience from Run for Your Lives, I can drop a zed at a distance with a .223 and scoot away before the rest of the hive makes its way to me. With the pistol, I could get in close drop zack and still run off. Spend an...

Re: Mil Surp Scout Rifles

But truthfully,.. I do love sportered out military rifles. I wish I could find a 7mm Mauser with the full length of barrel and a chopped stock. That would make for a fun project. We have a family heirloom of a 7mm Argentine Mauser (relic curio vintage) that was chopped down to a sporter stock. I ca...

Re: damn! how can PSA sell a lower this cheap?

I literally spent years shopping around and looking at various prices. Once I got turned on to PSA and their standards, I couldn't beat the prices.

Re: Agency issued handguns?

From last I read (don't know if it's true, but we have the resources on the forum to validate it), the Marine Corps bought a huge amount of "1911s" from Colt as the M-45. I think it looks pretty. They were for MARSOC and the frames were cracking as early as 7000 rounds. MARSOC feels quite silly abo...

Re: AAR - carrying the G26

For years, I carried my P99 "Gen 1" in a kidney/ 6:00 position. It would hide nicely in the small of my back, but kinda distorted my posture. Later, I switched to the 3:00-ish position with a forward cant. I was using a Uncle Mike's or Gunmate or something and it had zero retention ability. (I nearl...

The next part is to add on to it and I love an accurized rifle; therefore the Mk-12 made sense. I'm lo...
