Guest Blogger

Today is a special day, as we have a guest blogger known to many.  The World's Most Dangerous Librarian.

This ensemble will put the fear of death in any shamblor.  Well, re-death.  Second death.  It would scare them if they were smart enough to be scared.  Here she is going Old School with a vintage carbine and sporting a flash of apocalypse appropriate color.  Just because it's the end of the world doesn't mean you have to be unfashionable.  Rebuilding civilization in all its glory is still all us Zombie Hunter's goal.



Note the trigger finger.   That shade is a matte black Orly Iron Butterfly.  Black is never out of style.  It's Tactical, too!



In keeping with our Zombie theme the other digits are showing off a Dollish Polish Zombie Flesh.  A nice polish that says, "Hey Zombies!  You don't intimidate ME.  And thanks for lining up like that so I can save ammo by combining headshots."

The M1 Carbine is still a handy and rugged little warhorse that is more than enough gun for Zed Heads.  Semi-auto goodness, and the ammo won't weigh you down like all you folks that invested in bird shot 12 gauge.  And with a much better range radius for retiring the benighted souls looking to feast upon tasty living flesh.   In fact, I'd prefer the M1 Carbine for such a job if surplus ammo for it was more available.  That 5 pound weight has a lot going for it.  When the Zombie Survival Guide came out the recommended rifle was this, and it was still widely available and cheap.  It's not too late to get one of your own.  Stand out in a crowd of M4geries!!

Thanks Breda!

Great Carbines, but you're correct about the Ammo. Sad to think it's cheaper to fill an AR's 30 round mag rather than the M1's.

Zombie Flesh nail polish, what could go better with an M1?

Breda didn't eat your brains after writing this post, did she NJT?

Nice Carbine! If you get hooked-up with the CMP they have Aguila .30 Carbine ammo, 500/$200.

Yeah, but I pay around $300 - $350 per 1000 for M193. . . and can go around $200/1000 on Russkie 5.56.

OTH, Carbines are just fun, weigh practically nothing, and are less likely to make your eardrums meet in the middle, should you touch one off in a hallway sans ear pro.

Very nice on both counts! :-)

Reload, and with surplus powder and bullets, .30 carbine is almost too cheap to tally.
