Crossbows

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Actually, I would have said craptacular, maybe even, craptastic. Eh, I'll stick with crapalicous if the popular vote carries it...

I am so up for a roadtrip. it would be like that movie roadtrip but with paranoid nuts who believe the worlds gonna end soon from zombies!!

Or better yet I see another movie in the works ZS vampire style. It could have the ZS go and kill the most famous undead. dracula. that girl from underworld could be in it or her picture it could be one huge fight between the ZS and dracula and then raptorman could fast rope in at the last minute and turn into a werewolf cause thats the only way to kil dracula you know.......... I'm go eat some captain crunch........

Except that werewolves and vampires don't exist. Sheesh, some people have overactive imaginations. :D

Does anyone know about the legality of crossbows in Kansas, because my father thinks they are illegal, but is not sure. Crossbows are pretty cool, but they don't have a whole lot of range. I don't really plan on using a crossbow against zombies, I just to do some practice and hunting.

I've seen that crossbow in BudK before.

I don't think I'd trust anything in a BudK magazine.
