I'd add myself to the list but I really am nobody. ._.
Anyways, zombies, so topic rezz is justified because of the undead until I'm inevitably told that it doesn't mean jack and I'm being a horrible person.
Apart from that, if anyone was wondering how to survive when it weapons (Practically speaking. I mean, I love AA-12s as much as the next guy but the chances of getting one during the apoc? Nope.chucktesta), you need two things and about $150 (Most likely less). In gun terms that's dirt cheap. That's as much as a tolerable Airsoft gun.
- Mosin Nagant ($65-$90)
- Appropriate Mosin Nagant model bayonet ($45-$65)
There. This bolt-action rifle has 101 survival uses other than shooting crap, and bayonets just make everything cooler and, get this, they don't use ammo
. Who knew?
And given the sparsity of ammunition and whatnot, it's simply more practical.
On a related note to bayonet combat, here's a website ( http://www.thortrains.com/getright/drillbay1.html
) that has legitimate military copies for bayonet training for a huge variety of countries and timelines. Clearly if you don't use the legitimate WW2 Soviet bayonet training manual there is simply no way you'll survive.
