Oh don't worry, they're gonna use all that to secure our borders, strengthen our educational system, save the children, and stop global warming.  Nothing nefarious involved, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.  Here have a nice cup of Kool-aid.  Go ahead, drink up, you'll feel better in no time.

They are going to personally deliver some right to your door, be ready to get your share when the door bell rings.

Sweet!  I bought one of those babies a few years ago.  I've only shot paper targets with it though...

Don't forget about the bulletproof mobile checkpoint stations and the FEMA mega coffins!  ...fastens tinfoil just a little tighter

You may say that ZOMBIES are not the problem, but take a close look at the guys you reference.  They may start looking more like zombies as you go...

At the beginning, The term getting ready for the Zombie Apocalypse.
Was code for preparing, Just in case  we needed to defend our selves from a tyrannical Government.

Then the sales people heard about the Zombies.

COZ,

Thanks for that explanation.  I had noticed my friend's Gun Shop had targets that showed Zombies instead of a Criminal as the object.  Did not really get the connection till now.

Yes, a little preparation goes a long way.  I just would like to get more of my friends and associates involved.  Here in FL, there is a simple excuse:  A Hurricane could cause a few days or weeks interruption in services and utilities.  That alone is excuse enough to do some basic prep.

It is interesting some of the excuses I hear for someone NOT preparing.

Alternatively...
Zombies = urban dwellers that may flee the cities if *trouble* erupts.

*Trouble* may take many forms, as we know.

TenTea,
Do I detect some skepticism in your replies about Govt intrusion or abuse?  There are many examples, and they are seldom addressed a the crime they represent.

Congress is presently mulling over the recent iteration of Abuse by the IRS.


... when Congress once begins to stretch its power beyond the limits of the Constitution,
there is no limit to it, and no security for the people.

Horatio Bunce


The bipartisan tradition of using the IRS as a tool to harass political opponents suggests that the problem is deeper than just a few “rogue” IRS agents—or even corruption within one, two, three or many administrations.
Ron Paul

TenTea,

I think I better understand what you meant, and am chuckling at your humor...

Thanks for the reply!

P.S.:  BTW, I love the .308 Win, and the Mil version, NATO 7.62x51

Have you ever reloaded the BERDAN Primed Mil cartridges?

Hey, they will be coming early next year if they are not somehow diverted...

Found the following article, and have been told by "observant" people that they had come to the same conclusion on their own.

I'm trying to talk my wife into more preparations as this thing draws nearer!

When I worked for DOD, it was common to make up code names for groups that we might talk about in open air, so we wouldn't sound politically incorrect or profiling etc.

No need to be labeled as a tin foil wearing kook, when you hear TSHTF ... don't think Red Dawn, Think Katrina
