Coming Summer 2015! Scott's tongue-in-cheek guide to surviving the inevitable Apocalypse – whether it be Zombies, Aliens, Environmental Catastrophe, Science gone wrong, or Tea Partier's, Scott demonstrates simple ways you can be ready for the End!
Scott Davis has been watching the World with puzzled incredulity since 1959. So far, the World has been perfectly content to ignore him – that can hardly continue, now that he's opened his big mouth and begun making observations ...
Frankly, I'm pretty sure guns will only be useful for the first few days of an Apocalypse (or the inevitable Post-Apocalyptic Horror.) There's only so much ammo, after all, and little of it is standardized ... it will do you little good to come upon some gun-nut's stash of .45 ammo, if you're carrying a .357 hunting rifle, a 12-Gauge shotgun, or a 9mm Glock!
You should really consider getting a Katana and learning Kendo – a gun is only so much metal when out of bullets, but a sword is a thing of beauty forever ...
Apocalypse! A Guide to Survival
All firearms have certain features in common: each has a right side and a wrong side to be on – the sole exception being a Bazooka which emits a rocket from one end and flame from the other. Apart from that though, you’ll find that virtually all firearms have a muzzle with a hole in it, from which projectiles emerge, and a handle, which can be gripped by a smug bastard who knows he just blew someone away. It should be your earnest endeavor to be that bastard! Apart from which end of the weapon to be at, you need to also have a basic familiarity with ammunition, and the means by which it is inserted into your particular weapon … There are basically two types of ammunition: ball, and shot … the former is used in pistols and rifles, while the latter is used in shot-guns. (Slug ammunition, used in some shot-guns, and rockets/RPGs will be explained later.)
