The phalanx

Post by Deadpool959 » Fri Jun 07, 2013 8:10 pm

Basically in a zombie invasion you need a blade more than a gun
A gun is loud it attracts zombies if you and you survivors can get some poles attach a knife to the end and get some grill covers or lids your set each man covers the other man you will live to see another day :clap:

Blades during the apocalypse? Sticking together? Why have I not thought of this ingenious new strategy before?

Ummm, yeah....... Depending on your AO, It's called a suppressor... It makes those big scary gun things really quiet...... 8-)

OMG, so totally right!!!

Also, it worked in the movie "300", so it would totally work in a Zombocalypse!

Now I just need to find 299 other people as well trained in ancient combat formations and weapons and in perfect physical condition, like me, on Z-day, and I'm all set...anyone want to buy all of these useless firearms?

You're really enjoying your summer vacation aren't you. You should have your mom sign you up for little league or swimming lessons or something. It would be a shame to waste the whole summer in front of the computer.

In regards to the 'loud' guns, allow me to educate you in suppressor use. ( Yes this was done in a legal manner, all shooting was done on private property WELL outside of city limits. In AZ that is legal.)
