How Much Thought Have You Given To Your Weapons Choices

Let’s face it.  Gun enthusiasts all like to have an array of firearms to select from; however you can’t use them all at once and no one weapon is right for every self defense, post apocalyptic, or zombie apocalypse situation.  Mission always dictates weapons choices and as such one should always have their primary rifle, primary shotgun, primary semi automatic pistol, and primary revolver fully functional and ready for deployment as needed.

You need to be well versed in handling your primary firearms of choice and no one brand, make, or model is right for everyone.  These types of individual choices are best left to an informed user of said firearms.  So have you given thought to what your primary firearms selections will be in the event that they are ever needed in a defensive capacity?  If not, now is a good time to give the matter some logical thought.

You can see all 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page.  Go ahead and purchase one or more over at They are really quite interesting and entertaining to read.

      I haven’t had the pleasure of trying a crossbow yet. You should write some more blog posts about your crossbow experiences as it would make for some very interesting reading

    • I actually find it harder at close range with a standard shotgun than a pistol when trying to bring it to bear on a target in a confined space.
      For example in a room, less than 20 feet between you and the target, the shot spread will only be round 6 inches with most loads. Sounds fair until you think about all that pipe you have to move round.

      Take a Standard shot gun pipe.
      It pencils out at round 24 – 30 inches unless you are using a combat version at 12-24 inches.
      Add the stock, it’s difficult. Having said that, nothing cures constipation quicker than the double crunch sound of a pump action chambering a shell.

      As for moving fast through a house (especially a doorway 30-36 inches standard size) with a cocked crossbow, it can get real interesting really fast if a prod catches a coat or door frame and the shock jars the bolt out of alignment. Try it sometime, running though a house with doors half ajar. See how far you get before you really wack the prod hard against something.

      I always regard a crossbow as an ambush weapon i.e. you wait till the target crosses your choice of ground not you going after it.
