    Sparky wrote this and it got me thinking. I'll use the popular zombie apocalypse scenario for my question. If this topic is deemed to be inappropriate, a mod can lock or move it (like they need my permission), but I just wanted to pose the scenario.
    Pretty much a 'The Walking Dead' situation. Here's the twist. You get to pick your five team members that will be in the scenario with you.
    Now, let's be civil, please. Don't go stating who you wouldn't, and let's not turn this into a bash fest. I just felt it would be rather interesting to see who everyone would select as their teams, and their reasoning behind it.
    I'm still considering my five additional members. I have three that I simply wouldn't want to be in that scenario without, but the last two I am working on.
    So...in a zombie apocalypse, which five members would you want standing by you, AR in hand?

    Tikki for his knowledge and skill with the platform, and his shooting history.
    Quentin because I just have a feeling he'd charge hell with a super soaker and expect to win.
    Cane because I seriously think he could knock a booger off a gnats nose at fifty feet off hand.
    C3 because he's just a wealth of information and probably knows where every thing worth having is at.
    Mike because, even though he may get royally pizzed at times on certain issues? He wouldn't leave a man behind.

    Mike - As was said before, he'd never leave a man behind, and he knows his shtuff.

    Q - See above.

    JD - He's pretty trickly. You never know what he's gonna have up his sleeve.

    C3 - Someone has to be the brains behind the operation. C3 would be to us as Q is to James Bond.

    M14sRock - Seems to really know his stuff, plus the man has enough M14s and 1911s to equip a small army.

    My only question, do you guys bug out or bug in?


    o_O



    Prisons would be a good place to bug in, modern day castles. lots of security doors etc. Big yards to try and get yourself semi self sufficient with chickens and crops.

    Really depends on the situation that I'm in. If it's reasonable and practical to bug in and defend, I would stay put. If it's looking bad? Then hotwire and bug out, or hoof it if needed, to find another location to fort up at.

    Man it's impossible to narrow it down to five! Thanks for the votes of confidence guys but I am old and slow...

    Maybe have a team of 5 young guys and a 5 old ones for support, loading magazines, weapon repair/maintenance and because we have dozens of guns and ammo stacked deep! :D

    Guys... don't feel ashamed to add me to the list as "FNG we had to shoot in the leg as a getaway diversion".

    I'm a team player.

    It's really a rather arbitrary number that I selected. More of a case of 'what would you choose in the worst case scenario'.
    Obviously, numbers can be flexible. I listed five, but immediately realized a few more that I'd have to include just because there's no 'one size fits all' mindset.

    That's not a team player, that's cannonfodder, and anyone willing to shoot someone so they could escape is really someone that I wouldn't trust.

    Actually, I've read all the comics and seen every episode, and the reference to Shane was well stated. Believe me, I've defended his actions in that situation on other sites, and they got hot over it!!

    C3 has to send his regrets. Everybody laughed when I bought that missile silo at the surplus sale- but with a 9 ton door designed to withstand a 10 megaton nuke, I'm gonna stay put! :p

    He's painting 'Hotel California' on the door before he closes it.

    If I'm out hunting zombies, I hope the five guys with me are psychiatrists, and they're packing plenty of thorazine. :p

    With C3? I'd think his plan involves two hamsters, a little wheel hooked up to a generator, and some food laced with Viagra. He'll have enough power to run a small city off that wheel in 3 weeks.
