Time for a newl Poll: Now with 50% more sand

Post by The Twizzler » Mon Nov 07, 2016 9:22 pm

Ok, so like my previous poll you have chartered a private plane to have a vacation, this time in the UAE
Looks like a nice place
Image
However, your pilot misses the mark and flies you over Yemen instead ( he is not a good pilot and actually he was covering for a friend :shock: .) You get shot down, but unlike the pilot you survive the crash. You are now in a warzone where you don't speak the language, because of your nationality 75% of the People hate you and there are several warring factions including ISIL, there is no embassy for you to flee to which doesn't matter as you dont speak the language to ask for directions anyway. You do know that if you can safely travel 200 miles in any direction you can find safety (the border for funzies). You only have the pilot's weapons available to you as well as food, water, and a tent. Let's say the plane is on fire and you only have the chance to grab one weapon and the ammo that pilot had stored.

Really? Why waste ZS bandwindth on this(word) - not even funny.

Fess up now, Twiz: you had more than a few on board when you cooked up this one, didn't you?

I choose the matchlock rifle as long as it comes a coonskin cap.

50 % more sand? Why that's like a gazillion. How much will this remarkable sand deal cost me?
As of now I bet you got me wrong

I wish I could have been there when the Dutch engineer told the Sheik he was gonna have to import sand to build those man maid islands. They couldn't use dessert sand for structural reasons it had to be compacted sand from the ocean floor. :rofl:

I'm about as anti-shotgun as it gets, but hard to argue with 10 rounds.

great point on cut shells!

I chose the 1911 not my first choice but the best on the list I would try to use it to capture a better weapon

Goal one - find an AK.

Until then, the pistol seems reasonable.

Compound bow, because as the walking dead shows us, arrows last indefinitely.

Beretta Jetfire, because first thing I'm doing is covering up skin and hauling ass.

1911 for concealability and (though i hate this term) "stopping power". Then try and keep a low profile and hightail it to the the border. Realistically, probably die in the desert but hey, got to at least make an effort at life.

1911. I'm not betting my life on something with less oomph then a Walmart pellet gun, and everything else will be like a flashing neon sign saying "shoot this guy". Cover up and una$$ the area.

EDIT: If the pilot had a decent hacksaw, I'm grabbing the shotgun and doing some major surgery on it. Shorten the barrel, and depending on the style, cut down the stock.
