I need a master list for ACCESSORIES, I guess. There are so many little bits. Parts for one. But I have most replacement parts covered. A spare recoil spring plug, for one, considering how many times THAT flies across the basement shop when I clean the 1911.
I need more accoutrement, if I may use the Surrender-Monkey language. Pistols belts, holsters, molle gear, chest rig to store magazines, first aid kit, a decent surefire-style flashlight, a pack of some sort. Not JUST to fight zombies and Jacobins, but to go camping again. I haven’t been backpacking since I was in the boy scouts. Real camping, not the car-camping I’ve been doing where I have a pick-up truck worth of stuff within 100 feet of me.
One thing I will NEVER find is good boots. I never have and probably never will. My feet pronate, I have sesamoid bones making me pigeon toed, and a crappy right knee. I’ve never found boots that fit and rarely find decent shoes. Heavy boots exacerbate the knee problems, and ill fitting boots are just painful even after a break-in period.
I am resigned to fight zombies in worn out sneakers.
And if my feet are ok, I can hike for miles and miles.
As for the other gear… get it in all black and look like tacticool mall-ninja? No. I prefer OD Green. You look less silly in that anyway if you are using your gear for dual use, happy-family-hiking AND opposing the undead horde.
The Ink Spots - White Christmas - From 1947. #2 Son started listening to them because they were in the game Fallout: New Vegas. You don't hear them very often these days, which is a shame...
