Met the neighbors

Posted By on June 13, 2007

Found what to do with that .45ACP ammo. One of the neighbors is an avid hunter and has a .45 for home defense. I traded him 1000 rounds for about 500 more 12ga 00 buck shells which will work in the shotgun. The other neighbor doesn't shoot much, but they have a .22 and not much ammo, so I gave him what was left of a box of Winchester Wildcats. Unfortunately, it's all I could spare.

The power is still on and we've saved up some water. Of course, after we did this I remembered that the well is artesian and fills about half a gallon per minute, so we do have long term running water.

More thoughts:

  • The AK is pretty much useless past 100m.
  • Close in rifles need holographic sites. Snap shots take too long.
  • You can take zombies with a .22. It just takes several of them in the head. However, the 10/22 is good for that at distance, and what else am I going to do with the .22 ammo?
  • They seem to mostly be coming in from the road, they don't like to come over the stream or through the dense woods.
  • We've seen no police, but heard some sirens an hour ago.
  • I saw some helicopters and jets, but not more than that.
  • I called my in laws. They're okay and have joined up with the neighbors on the street. They're pretty much all on the fire dept, and there is a retired policeman on the street as well. So, they should be fine.
  • I haven't been able to get hold of my folks, but that doesn't really mean anything.

Stay alive, folks.
