I don't smoke, but I plan to take a nap in the afternoon. I'll also probably have some Cheez-Its when I get home.

I picked up 1/4 of Indian Kush today.  I could smell it all the way through my bag, so I know it's good

I have plans!

Picking up 1750rds of 5.56mm from a guy in Alexandria tomorrow for $200.

Mix of 55gr FMJ and 55gr ballistic tip.

The ballistic tip is particularly effective against zombies.   And high hippies I might mistake for zombies. Better to take em out, just to be safe.

You can't ever be too careful. That glazed look in their eye is hard to gauge at a distance.

Is FMJ good against zombies?  I would think you would want less penetration and more expansion.

I prefer large caliber hollow-tip for zombie destruction.  Works pretty well on hippies, too.

Realistically for any large mammal (humans or quasi-humans, such as hippies or zombies included) you want a better performing round- 7.62, or ideally 6.8 SPC .

That being said, since neither zombies nor hippies are likely to engage you from more than a few feet away, 12 gauge slugs are by far the most satisfying to hit 'em with. Sort of a flesh explosion.

Would you reccomend using the staple anti-zombie tool of a 12 guage with buckshot?

If so, what choke setting?

4/20 isn't about Bob Marley.

I prefer large caliber hollow-tip for zombie destruction.  Works pretty well on hippies, too.

FMJ isn't ideal, given it's a "ball" round, it doesn't allow for any expansion and is prone to over penetration. It will, however, fragment... so it has that advantage over current issue 62gr steel-core FMJ.
The polymer tip on the VMAX rounds provide for devastating expansion.

Either one will take out zombies, but might need a double-tap with the FMJ.

I have another 1700rds of FMJ and 800rds of HP at home. Plus almost 1000rds of mixed FMJ/HP 9mm should the zombie/hippie count run high enough to exhaust rifle ammo (a possibility here in NoVA).

I'd like higher caliber... a 7.62 with .45ACP backup would be sweet... but need to stick with what I have and stockpile ammo, rather than have more guns with nothing to feed them.

4:20pm I should just be turning onto Connecticut Ave in DC... can't have a firearm with me in the district... might be a problem. Hopefully I can make it home in time to beat the zombie/hippie crowd before they leave the confines of their basements in search of food. If I can't make it to the house before the munchies set in... I'm toast.
