Yeah. It's not over yet.

But I am monitoring this thread. For obvious reasons....

Anyone like the boltgun tactical rifle for end of the world applications? Or am I the only one?

Yeah that's rather why I'm lookin at the mosin. If the S does indeed hit the fan. It looks rather old and ancient, not really gonna raise too many eye brows. Though since ammo isn't really too readily available I'm wondering what might be a better low profile rifle in a more common caliber.

Nope, I like the Remington 700 and the 300 Win Mag as well.

Fired!!

And yeah, I am STILL monitoring this thread.

Why?

Because it could end at ANY time.

Someone is getting a pretty cool primer to a BOB. It probably won't be Jack, that Remington loving turncoat ( ) as his BOB is Delta Certified....

But the rest of the forum will enjoy the final prize package....

I haven't shot a gun in almost a month and a half.

I've tried to make up for it by looking at guns on the internet and all that does is make me want one more.

Now instead of another 1911 I'm thinking a Sig.

...That or a glock. Haha, I made a joke.

Haven't been to the range in two months!!

So I'm taking the Model 10, the 1991A1 and the Taurus 24/7 to California for a three week vacation away from the rain!!

Zipgun from Wikipedia:

The essential part of any improvised firearm is the barrel and chamber. For small, low pressure cartridges, like the common .22 caliber (5.5 mm) rimfire cartridges, even very thin walled tubing will suffice. Author Harlan Ellison describes the zip guns used by gangs in 1950s New York City as being made from tubing used in coffee percolators or automobile radio antennas, strapped to a block of wood to serve as a handle. A rubber band provides the power for the firing pin, which is pulled back and released to fire. The use of such weak tubing results in a firearm that can be more dangerous to the shooter than the target; the poorly fitting smoothbore barrel provides little accuracy and is liable to burst upon firing.[1]
