I swear the mosin is overkill for the partially decomposing and mushy undead. I sat next to a group at the range with no dividing walls and got wacked by the muzzle blast for 3 hours today. The .243's, .270's and such were not as bad as those guys and their 1903, mosin and k98 mauser. Holy crap those things were overkill for people hunting. Thankfully they were on my right so I got to rain hot steel wolf cases on them while they weren't beating my brains out with their reports. Not a bad year so far, two days into it and I've blown through 1000+ rounds (try that with a hang over ;)

Mosins were made for the most dangerous game.

I <3 my Mosin-Nagant. While we're on the topic of muzzle blasts, I found out yesterday that putting acetylene in a potato gun creates surprisingly powerful results.

I'm man enough not buy another boom stick until my wife says it's ok. I'll probably step "up" to .223 if it's alright with her....

Hey, not too shabby. I never thought of that.

I wonder though, could the gators get the zombie virus?

So you're saying that the following is true?

Amiright?

.223 isn't a step up unless you're shooting .22 short there bub.

REAL guns disintegrate cinder-block at 200 meters, not just poke a hole in it.

Next thing I know, you're going to be trying to tell me that the PPSh shoots "too fast" or that the AKM is "too heavy."

Whale has a good idea, but I would be worried about zombie gators.

I'm thinking SkyNet headquarters may be the safest place - but only if zombies register as "human" to SkyNet's sensors.

Man, zombie defense is complicated.

I would try an island but that didn't turn out well in land of the dead. Totally thought that would work...

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Good idea. My house is less than 50 yards away from it so I guess I'll be the first to try out that theory.

Screw it. My old high school is a fortress. All I have to do is clear it out and set up its 1st floor hurricane shutters and I'd be made.

Why is it so many 'what would you do if zombies attacked!?' threads come up?

Is it just that everyone has the thought that a zombie attack is imminent and how interesting it would be to actually happen and have to barricade ourselves in our homes and fend of the flesh hungry post-humans?

Me? Being as my house is the only one around for 5 miles, I would post up on my rooftop during the days with the .50, and wait.

In before MG-42.

My old high school would be pretty good if I could access the keys to the place.

I'm pretty screwed on Z-day when it happens.

With enough notice, I could throw up the hurricane shutters fairly quickly. Unless your zombies are of the supernatural type, there's no way they could break them down.

I would bring my sister's Jeep inside the garage to turn it into a tank for scavenging missions/escape.

If I was at school, I'd be completely screwed. My school is in the middle of a quite populated area and none of the buildings can be fortified. My best hope would be to grab one of the planes we have and fly to an old abandoned strip in the middle of a lake.
