Look Out, Nazi Zombies!

The good part about fighting Nazi Zombies is that you really, really don't have to feel bad for whatever you do to them. The bad part is that you are fighting Nazi Zombies.

 Got to love Vladmir Putin. He really is a bad mama jamma strait out of a Tom Clancy novel.

Not sure if this last one is an authentic old terribly un PC ad or a newly made terribly un pc ad. Regardless it is so steriotypical but with that shred of real life that is just great. Makes me think it is something Red from That 70's show would have said.


I spent the whole day writing at work so you all get pictures. Lots of things are in my head but I am totally wrote out.

Picture of the Day


When the news guys talk about those big numbers it sounds made up to me. Sort of like a kid on the playground yelling "I hate you a gazillion" to another kid. Broken down into numbers that make sense and equate to a family budget it is quite scary.

Groups


Yesterdays Post brought this up. Lots of people here and there say talk about putting a group together based solely on the common interest of preparadness. I sincerely wish these folks the best in their endevors. Matter of fact I am paranoid and distrustful of strangers, heck I barely trust the people I know.

I personally consider trust far more important than skills or stuff or really anything else they can bring to the table. Training and skills can be acquired if a person is willing to learn, doubly so if they can invest some time and money in the right places like medical and firearms training. You can't train trust and to me it is very hard to build, particularly in a short period of time and an artificial relationship. I would rather have my lifelong friend with no real training pulling watch at night than  a Navy Seal who we met online going from room to room slitting throats. Whatever sort of motley crew I will assemble is going to be made up of family and lifelong friends. Not saying I talk with everyone in these groups about all of my plans but I rather selectively cherry pick the like minded individuals. On the bright side given my background I can go a reasonable way towards getting the firearms/ fighting/ small unit tactics training up to a decent standard until (ideally some day) more professional training can be sought out.

When it comes to OPSEC we have a pretty good control mechanism called paranoia. Somehow I probably ended up with the most isolationist paranoid group of friends a fellow could have.  We talk about this stuff with each other but that is pretty much it.

When emergency preparedness and such come up in conversations with others (using the Lost term of everyone that isn't in the group) I stick to pretty generic advice. "It is probably a good idea to have a couple weeks worth of food around" or "Having a couple hundred bucks in small bills is probably smart" and the like. Making generic suggestions can be done without saying that you have three dozen where you hid them Krugerrands or that you have enough food for 12 people for 3 years stored at your 'hunting cabin'.

Gratuitous 1911 Pics: Clearing Up The Desktop




I like the 1911. They don't have the rugged reliability of a Glock or a lot of features of modern pistols. They are however beautiful and have a certain mistique about them. Think I could use a nice stainless one at some point in the future. However as firearms are currently a low priority and a 1911 is low on that list (another set of group standard guns) and at least one other rifle would be first) it will be a long time before something like this or this comes to live at my place.
