Don't confuse a belligerent and aggressive attitude with the strength, training, and conditioning needed to prevail in a fight. How do you know you have the Will To Win, if you don't even have the will to train?

Ditto on that. Full of .556 ammo and rations. Blow the bridges and get across on the anchor lines. Pretty sure zombies can't climb steel cables.

I know the forward ramp has a pretty tall & stout "hooligan" gate across it. You can drive vehicles up the back ramp......maybe we can just grease it and the anchor chains. :awesome:

One of these will do, but I'd need about 3 volunteers to carry the ammo for it.Image

The idea being that I would have something to shoot almost any ammo I can find. And if I find ammo I don't have a gun for, it is probably close by.
Might wanna go back and read the forum rules again. Scavenging isn't exactly encouraged around these parts.

Dream?

Battle ready AK (VEPR K being worked on)
Battle ready m4gery (Daniel Defense, being worked on)
Multi-caliber suppressor
20ga Over/Under (still shopping)
Suppressed .22LR Rifle (in the works)
Suppressed .22LR Pistol (still shopping)
Glock 21SF (have it, need a can)
10,000 7.62x39 HP
10,000 7.62x39 FMJ
10,000 5.56x45 M855
10,000 5.56x45 MK262
10,000 .22LR HP
5,000 .45 ACP JHP
500 20ga #4 Shot shells
500 20ga #7/#8 Shot shells

Yup. .22 and 20ga for hunting, the AK can take anything really large, and the AK and AR can both serve as defensive carbines. I've been setting aside x% of my pay, which gets divvied into "firearms building" "ammo" and "other preps."

Whose the prostitute? Two words: "Total Gym"

Finally getting some well deserved recognition. ST6 FTW.
