If I am burning up in a fire or bitten by a zombie, I can see it.

Otherwise, I'll just have to keep on trooping through the suck until it gets better.

I'm old(ish), I'm a lot slower than I used to be, but they're going to have to earn my scalp.

I know enough otherwise good people now who think it just that "bad guys" be made to suffer in physical ways that if there was a broad scale breakdown lasting a few months or more that torture might become a very real possibility. Of course, I think such a breakdown is unlikely to occur any time soon.

*Admittedly the parts of history I've focused on are usually when things are going wrong in some way, rather than when everything is normal and happy.

ETA: When I say normal I don't mean captured enemies were nearly always tortured, but rather that it was something that happened on a regular basis.



I don't get it, your on a Zombie prepping site but don't think it's going to happen?

The zombie apocalypse is definitely going to happen, but it is going to be extremely orderly and relatively peaceful.

What if there was two of you and you had only one round would you take the quick way out or safe some one from a slow and or painful death. You all so don't know if you goanna be rescued so how long do you wait.


First post is it in the correct section?


In zombie land this may be a tactical decision, to avoid eating your loved ones. In this scary world, 2 weeks of Outward Bound or SERE training will help with the dark thoughts. For further historical context from the post Kipling world, Kurt Hahn's your guy. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Hahn

I didn't make it as a paratrooper, or later as a parent of four successful kids, or even before those as a farmer by quitting. I'm an 8th generation Texan and 21st generation North American.

I'll fire my round and club, bite, slash, stab, and scream my way all the way to Fiddlers Green.


I miss my Dad and PaPa Harry anyway.

As an ex-tanker, I can say that some suggested that you keep a spare round to eat in case you were trapped inside a burning tank. The the other option suggested was to hold your breath, then stick your face into the flames and inhale deeply in hopes that the pain would put you out.

Outside of that spend your last bullet on the sonuvabitch trying to kill you or your's, and force them to kill you because you're too damn ornery and dangerous to try and capture.

Better yet, slaughter the bastards. :twisted:

That does not sound like a good plan B to me. :shock:

A much better plan B IMO.

what makes you "think" that it's all going to happen as one event? if you need to reload a 30 rd mag rifle, you're done. You are missing way too much or have too many enemies, or both. In fact, if you need to reload a double stack mag pistol, you'll survive only by luck. In the first place, if shtf, you'd better have a silenced gun or 2, and you'd better stay underground during daylight hours. With soft armor, subsonic ammo, luminous sights and night vision, you'll be ahead of 99.9%, who dont even have sense enough to avoid being out when everyone else can see them.

With a silenced .22lr autorifle (better yet, a Ciener .22lr conversion unit for a shorty AR15 in 223) you can do a lot of killing while nobody knows you are around, much less what direction the fire is coming from. If you are smart, you wait until dusk to attack, so you can vanish in the darkness.

Not really what you are discussing, but the title reminded me of something that was in "style" back when I was much younger. Back in high school, Levi's jean jackets were all the rage. Many of us carried a 22lr stuffed in the red Levi's label on the front top pocket. This was back in the 80's.

A bold fashion statement?
