zombie apoc weapons book 3


ZOMBIE APOC WEAPONS BOOK 3
Chapter One
Rifle
I have to cover the rifle first, because that is also my melee weapon platform. This will come as no surprise to long time readers. I love a bayonet. I love a weapon that was designed with bayonet fighting in mind, rather than just sticking an attachment on as an after thought. Yes, M-16, I'm looking at you. Now, I've watched video's of previous generations of Jarheads ( pre-Sandbox ) claim that the M-16 is not in fact a delicate wallflower and that they went through training buttstroking and bayoneting with a training rifle ( hence, it is abused by class after class ) that then shoot the target at 500 yards.
*
I have little reason to doubt this gentleman. I'm sure that thirty years ago Colt made the A2's very robust. For their price, I'm sure they were worth it. I hate Colt, as they rushed production during Vietnam and they were half of the equation why the M-16 killed our troops over there ( the other half was the Army idiots changing the designer specs on ammo. The difference is, I expect the government to kill me through negligence, NOT a company that wants me to spend money on them ). I do NOT hate Palmetto State Armory. But I do NOT expect their rifles to hold up to the same abuse.
*
At one time PSA would sell you a rifle kit at low as $270, if you got in early on a holiday promotion ( they are insanely more, now, with the nationwide shortage of guns as LibTard's once again rush to protect themselves against the very Diversity Crowds they were just championing. No one remembers the unarmed during the Rodney King riots being told to come back in two weeks? ).
*
Like a non-homosexual sailor on shore leave, Americans went through an AR Withdrawal for ten years and were ready to burst. Heck, they didn't even really LIKE them before the weapons ban. They were a souped up rimfire far less robust than the $99 stand in SKS. But nothing gets gals panties as moist as being told NO, and the same applies to guys at the gun store. If Uncle Sugar didn't want you to have an AR, well then, they must be worth having. Then all the returning vets who weren't career Army or Contractors, not having drank the Kool-Aid that everything Imperial is cool, who had a taste of getting screwed over, they now wanted an AR to prep for Boogaloo.
*
Yes, I know, Boogaloo wasn't a thing back then. But the fear the US government was going to screw you goes back even before the Revolution. For an organization that pushes propaganda though compulsory education ( that should be a clue right there ) about how free we all are, they sure have a long history of punishing us for victimless crimes. Talk against the government, drinking alcohol, protesting slavery, hookers and blow. NOTHING the government does says, hey, relax, I won't hurt you, no need for that gun. Ah, Hell To The Yeah, I need a gun. Several guns. Lots of guns. More guns than even I acknowledge a sane person would stockpile ( you think you have remained sane in Madhouse America? ).
*
Since Industrial Age America has wage slaved us, it is fitting to use the produced tools of that Industry to help retain the tiniest bit of remaining freedom. Industrialization gave us Quantity, if not always quality ( you DO realize that industrialization is now dead, do you not? ), and you need quantity food, guns and ammunition. Only then do you even have half a chance of thwarting the forces of Team Evil in the coming armed clash, centralized forces attempting to crush the decentralized ones. Only someone who was in the tender embrace of the government ( military, orphans, prisoners ) knows even a fraction of the evil those twats are capable of. That is why vets make the best guerrillas. Not because of training, but foreknowledge.
*
As every swinging dingus with a desire to earn a living in the arms industry noticed the demand and started assembling AR's ( because the design lent itself to decentralized production, unlike state factory AK's-or, really, most other gun designs, so kudos to you Mr. Stoner and friends ), prices started dropping from the ass humping 90's versions. Low prices goosed sales, and before we were aware of what the heck just happened to us, the AR became THE de facto militia weapon of choice in this country. It could be claimed the AR ( with the M-16 added to the count ) in civilian hands in ONE country is at least in count half of ALL the AK's in the world.
*
That may be slightly hyperbolic, but only slightly. Hundreds of thousands a month, JUST from those companies agreeing to share stats, plus all the Tim Taylor lower 80% receiver makers, plus all the units sold prior to the record keeping, and I think it is fair to say there is a good one AR or M16 for every ten citizens in this country. Last year, with the Commie governors going Full Retard Red Flag ( what in the actual hump is wrong with those idiots? Now they tinpot dictator over Beer Virus ), there were more AR's sold than the entire number of M-16's in the Marine Corps. In ONE month.
*
And I don't even really much care for the AR. But you have to acknowledge what an impressive feat took place this century. Most American's aren't very fond of each other, but they can all agree that the militia weapon to have is the AR. You will have to wade through the high tide of spare parts, post-apocalypse. You can't even say that about the AK, the second most popular choice ( far too many different standards, little interchangeability ). But do NOT for one second think my zombie apoc weapon is an AR. It isn't. Because all those civilian AR's? To stay price competitive, I would bet a jelly filled donut they are no where near as robust as the old military rifles.
*
Not as far as field use. I'm sure they are fine. But as far as buttstroking and bayoneting? No friggin way I'd trust an AR. You, yourself, might be stuck with an AR for the zombies. Me? I want a gun that can be used as a melee weapon. You go right ahead and practice dropping your carbine on its two point sling and fast drawing your 9mm. Me? Naw. I want to use what is already in my hand, for when the ammo runs out. I'll use an old school WWII surplus bolt gun. Continued next time.

    1. I honestly don't like dingus teasers in TV and movies, to suck you in further. I really don't want to burn out new arrivals with too much semi-auto hate and similar, all at one time. Slowly boiling the frog :)

  2. Right, following. I have always been of the mindset that as a (MWP) Minionite Wolverine Partisan, operating in an austere low or no support resouce environment the go to longarm would be the most robust and simplistic design first, then followed by an opfor -opposing state forces weapons for battlefield scavenging attributes. That ar15 thingy was down the list. As things did evolve as you articulated, I had adopted out of a future group, herd, tribe, necessity needs a few of those wayward ar-15 rifles and integrated them into operations.

    Like tool purposes, there is narrow fields of utility that those arms work well for. (Mission specific) However, with general conditions of a hermitage, compound, heavy terrain, barriers, etc there are other kit items that are more appropriate and the first to be grabbed off of the racks when an MWP deploys out of his B-pod hovel.

    Flash the right hand signs and act cool amongst those other Wolverine Deplorable kids, while having the right type of ar-15 / Muh Guns! to help fit in. Then it is just Staying Frosty from there lads.

    1. Ha! Good point. Even during Boogaloo, there are social standards that must be upheld for tribe unity ( or its short term useful derivative ).

  3. From the Worst Tattoo department:

    Eugene Oregon.
    April 18th, 2020 6pm.

    One of the elite -- in this case, an angry militant feminist millennial female -- stomped through a grocery.
    Her bicep tattoo:
    "MAINTAIN 6' DISTANCE" with red arrows pointing fore-and-aft.

    Garsh.
    I intended to maintain a six-foot distance.
    Can you imagine her buried six-feet deep, us walking across her grave?

    I'm getting all quivery at the thought.
    Do we still have to wait for recess to play?

    1. It's still their game, so the rules get to change. Patience, Grasshopper. As for the tattoo, now I'M thinking about getting one. Appropriate whenever, wherever there are people.

  4. One advantage the AR was, and it is a niche one. After injuring my shooting shoulder, the lower recoil becomes attractive.

    I still have my Enfield and love it, but after putting a few rounds through it, I become stiff as a board, so it becomes my hunting rifle, while any high volume shooting goes to the AR.

    1. I'm in the same situation. Not an injury, just a slight build that feels the recoil, bigly. I started out planning for carbine ammo reloads ( as well as shooting pads ), then had the disastrous 80% build failure that made lemonade out of lemons. Low recoil, ( used to be ) cheap ammo, spare parts availability. Familiarity with vets, even. Lots of great reasons, only ruined by lack of ruggedness.

  5. Lord Bison, even in the Civil War, the casualties in the Army of the Potomac included only 1% from bayonet wounds. Bayonets by that time were mostly for intimidation, and not so much for sticking people. Of course, they were actually great for intimidation. Back up 80 years, or less, and bayonets were extremely important.

    I expect that even in the Pacific, few Japanese were killed with the use of American bayonets. As in the famous scene in "Raiders of the Lost Ark," a bullet works quite well against a man with a blade. Sam Colt may have "made men equal" but he certainly made a man with a Colt superior to a man with a blade in almost every case.

    Only on the worst day of your life would you likely need a bayonet to defend your life, and that is why they are essentially afterthoughts on both ARs and AKs.

    1. Okay, to be fair, we are talking about the ZOMBIE apocalypse. But I understand what you are saying, because bayonets are also my REGULAR apocalypse choice. By the rationale you cite, and which everyone else agrees with, we also don't need pistols. Too few are killed with them ( this was the study at the beginning of WWII which ushered in the M1 Carbine, to replace the 45 for almost all support troops ). But most tactical Tommy's want to carry a pistol, Just In Case. That is what a bayonet is, as is the fixed blade knife ( they used to be one and the same ) you carry. Last ditch weapons as back-ups. At least one bayonet fight in modern Iraq served just that purpose, and that was with a silly ass bullpup. I believe in true light weight infantry, and a bayonet rather than pistol is part of that. As is bolt action over semi. I understand the bayonet was technically obsolete with the end of cavalry. But it can return to usefulness at the Apocalypse, given the death of ammunition factories. You kind of anticipated an article or two in advance, so expect a repeat of this elsewhere.

    2. Bayonets?....Meh!. Duct tape and ginsu knife. Pokey stick

    3. Check bud k, smokey mtn. Knife, etc type of knife catalogs for deals on middlin quality knives or bulk quantity deals that get clearance blown out for more sales. This depression will spur desperation sales to clear warehouses. Buy stupid amounts of blades and implements like a redoubter's compulsive high cap magazine buying addiction disorder. Dynamics in the future may make blade work with frenemies equally as often occuring as firearms actions. Stay sharp edged, and frosty.

    4. You know, all this gnashing of teeth over the end of China trade, no auto parts, no bike parts, no machine parts, and I totally spaced, no more knives. This could be problematic.

      Delete
    5. Yeah, now is the time for a walk around and mental exercise of inventory gaps or priority changes. Check over workshop and hermitage goods and hardware needs, not just flir guns and toiletpaper.

      Delete
    6. So far, I've been pretty good about not second guessing myself. No sweating over the Amazon web page stressing about what I should get. If the globalist Chinese factory model is done, no need to beg an extension with even more extra warehousing. Been doing it for years, time to stop. Breath. Relax. Just concentrate on food.

    7. Silly ass buildup!
      I can shoulder my buildup and go room to room in my house without ever Lowering the gun.
      Try that with any rifle but a buildup.
      Best all around rifle there is.

    8. I assume you mean "bullpup" and autocorrect dry humped you?

    9. Autocorrect

      Another great advancement 😊

  6. For myself, it would have to be the lever action carbine. The world's first assault rifle. Easy to top off the magazine after each round expended. Even in 30/30 it is far more powerful than the standard 5.56 poodle shooter. I prefer the Marlin because of the side ejection, over the Winchester.
    Also tough enough to use as a club.

    2. Indeed got one to match the .45 Colt revolver. Hell of a thumper with Max loaded pistol rounds (only with Ruger pistols never S&W, Taurus etc.)

  7. I got your email and the Bison newsletter. Thanks for sending it. When I couldn't get on here yesterday, I was thinking that you had finally been arrested for crimes against humanity, and Bison prepper was shut down for good. Figured you were locked up at that super secret government black site being waterboarded and forced to lick Rosie Odonnells taint.

  8. The MWP cannot be deemed wrong or not of a proper gear standard by any one else in Apocalypse conditions. Just being still alive and able to roll out of your B-pod with any armaments and martial kit is Minion badge wearing worthy enough. When in actuality as things progress deeper along most yuppie gear queers will be toasted, remainder of the chumps will be scurrying around scatter assed at the kit and gear level with dorky behaviors as depicted in that movie "a boy and his dog". Don't be that guy, and stay frosty.

  9. Colt originally designed a hard-chromed bolt group for the AR. The bean counters didn't want to pay the extra, so they kept the same design but with a black phosphate finish. The hard-chromed bolts, and nickel boron, etc., are much more forgiving of fouling.

    1. There are more people selling AR parts than liver pills to old humpers. I imagine this item is readily available? I never looked. I don't have to worry about it anyway.

  10. Yup, that's what AR's have going for them. I much prefer the Ruger Mini rifle, but I can get an AR magazine for $5 and can't even find one locally for the Ruger.

    1. Even to this day, Ruger has free advertising from syndicated TV. All they had to do was push the narrative that the Mini was a descendant of the M-1 Garand and M-1 Carbine. They could have been a contender ( granted, there were other issues like factory only fixes, but still...), especially all those decades the AR was so damn expensive. And they threw away chance after change. So don't hate the AR, hate Ruger.
