AR15 stuff

Becca and I had a disciplinary talk the other day - I bought three Pmags, and she wondered why I needed MORE. I simply told her that when the zombies hit the fan, she'll be glad I have the magazines instead of the money.

Besides, these mags are TOUGH - see the video



This is when we got into the debate on whether a shotgun (Becca's choice) would be better than an AR15 (my choice) for zombies... It wasn't pretty. We finally reached a compromise - Becca said we need one of each (my evil plan worked!). Although she said she'd rather be sniping zombies from a rooftop rather than taking them on in the streets. We both agree that we'd much rather have the slow "shambling " undead from the Night of the Living dead, as opposed to the marathon running spastic carnivores of 28 days later.

Also, I made a cool tactical sling for the rifle for about $15 bucks - you can order the materials here - the instructions are here.

Here's some pics, because every post is better with pics:

The sling...














You'll notice have a windowed Pmag - great for zombies because they get really scared when they see how many rounds you have left. I like how you can use the clips on the sling to give you more slack, or even remove the rifle without pulling it off over your head (handy if you are wearing it under a pack/ruck).

Just so you know, it's Becca's fault that there isn't a hot model for my sling - she didn't want to be in the picture - but here's your weekly Becca fix...

Oh yeah, and as per Becca's "random bag of crap" post:

Eli will crush you!

Stewart, do you even know how it freaks me out to see Eli holding a gun? Are you doing this on purpose to torture your MIL? Can't he just hold a squirt gun? I think I've seen camo squirt guns.

How funny!

I'm not intending to torture you - but I think it's good to have Eli hold a safe/unloaded gun from time to time while I'm supervising. It takes the "mystique" away, and we have conversations about what guns are for and how we don't ever touch them unless mommy or daddy are helping him.

It's funny too, because he can't even LIFT any of the guns for more than a few seconds, let alone pull the charging handle/rack the slide/etc, or load ammo into the magazines...

We still keep the guns stored safely - we love our little man and do everything we can to keep him safe.

If you give him a camo squirt gun, I'll take a picture of him holding it and post it.

Ha Ha Ha... I love pictures of Eli holding guns that are bigger/heavier than he is....

B.A. Sling!
Does Eli know where the safety is?
I think your father of the year application to Oprah is out the window now, dude.

I just think it's funny that the MIL was more worried about the lil dude holding an empty rifle than the dad's zombie paranoia. I mean, I have zombie-killing dreams all the time too (who doesn't?!?!), but I wouldn't post that for my MIL to see.
