Oh, so you're reading my profile. That means either you're bored out of your
mind, or you've noticed me around the forums and decided to give my profile a look. So, thank you.
Oh, and while you're here, please take the time to check out my
survival plan I have posted on my page.
I'm Zach, I'm a stupid 14 year old kid. (almost 15)
Just a good 'ol country boy really, that likes guns, and planing for a zombie apocalypse.
I'm not sure what started my zombie fixation that spiraled out of controll and led me to this site, but I'm glad it did. It's been a hell of a lot of fun.
You can usually find me nosing around random threads, and poking fun at Mall Ninjas.
I'm not sure what else to say about myself, because there isn't much to say, so I'm just going to try to make my profile prettier.
Here's me with my hair straightened. ^
--Here's me looking nerdy with my new glasses.
Here's my BOB. It also includes items for my family's BOB's that I was nice enough to plan out for them.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COMMENT ON MY B.0.B. AND MY SURVIVAL PLAN. ANY CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
My Survival Plan:
No, I'm kidding. I'm smarter than that. I try to show that there's at least a few people in my generation with some level of intelligence and maturity. Here's my actual plan.
Me- 14, 5'5", 105lbs-somewhat physically fit, smart, common sense, hunting/fishing skills, good marksmen, weapon knowledge, camping skills, good worker, basic medical skills(wound cleaning, suturing, splints), some zombie apocalypse survival knowledge, get along with people.
Girlfriend- 5'5, ***lbs- smart, loves animals, keeps me company, but she is really a city girl.
Dad- 45, 5'11", 225lbs- totally ripped, very smart(UI grad), common sense, taught me how to hunt/fish, great marksmen, taught me about weapon use/maintaining, took me camping, great worker, medical skills questionable(but his dad was a doctor so who knows), great cook, great leader. Pretty much me times 50.
Mom- 43, 5'5", ?lbs- lifetime of experience, good mom, decent worker, there for support.
Sis- 13, 5'3, 90lbs- no skills really. We can just feed her to the zombies....
First things first: Race into town and grab my girlfriend. Don't care if I have to ride a bike there, It has to be done.
I live about 10 miles away from a town of 9100, so hopefully the outbreak would take a while to reach my neck of the woods. So as soon as we hear news of the outbreak, I'll start fortifying. I live in a 2 story house, with a decent view of everything south of my house. The house has quite a few windows, but the only ones i plan to fortify are the 5 in the front of my house, and my back porch which connects my house to the garage. For the 5 front windows I plan to have me and my dad go out to our barn, and collect the sheet metal from the roof and strip some of the solid oak boards from it. We'll have enough sheet metal to reinforce from the outside, and the inside for extra protection. There's other windows on the other 3 sides of the house, but the house is built on a slant, so the other windows are a good 7'+ off the ground, so zombies would have a hard time getting in those. For the back porch, I plan on using the solid metal fencing for our horse corral, which is about 5'x8', and could definitely withstand the pounding of the undead. Also we could use some sheet metal to cover the gaps in the fencing.
Long-Term Survival Plan:
There's a ton of wooded area around here, and we know the area pretty good so we can hunt from the woods. Game around here include whitetail deer, coyote, rabbits, fox, squirrels, quail, pheasant, and other birds. We have hunting gear, experience hunting, and our tree stands set up in our woods. For water we have 2 wells in our woods. The water would have to be boiled,but we could do that in our fire place. PLAN B) I'm still working on this, it involves a BOL not far from my house, still working out the details with a friend of mine.
Now I guess I'll post stuff about weapons.
Remington 870 Express 12 gauge, and 20 gauge
The best weapon for any disaster scenerio! Mine are mainly used for deer hunting, so they aren't that fancy. Looks like this------------------------------------------------
They're fitted with the original wood stocks and forearm grip, and standard sized magizine tube. For the 12 gauge model, I own the standard smooth bore barrell, and a rifled slug barrell with rifle sights. The 20 gauge model only has a smooth bore, and is fitted with a camo red dot scope.
The Remington 870 Express is famous for it's simple reliability, and great price. The 12 guage model costs about $170 or so. I've pretty much grown up with both the 12 and 20 gauge, the 12 being my dad's and the 20 was my first gun I got as a gift when I was little. Never have I had this gun malfunction in any way. The 20 occasionally has double feeds, though that only happens when I cycle the action slowly when unloading. These shotguns will never let you down, and since shotguns can be used for almost any purpose, they are one of the best weapons for a zombie apocalypse.
I plan on getting a collapsible M4 style stock, extended mag. tube (when I'm not hunting), a pistol grip, and ghost ring sights. A bit like this--
Savage 111 .270 This is really the only good range weapon we own right now. Because my dad doesn't think shooting is fun, and you can't hunt with a rifle here in Illinois. So he isn't to big on buying rifle's. But anyway, this is a very great rifle. Has the standard black synthetic stock, and the scope that came right out of the box. All in all, great rifle. Right out of the box, after a quick site-in it was shooting like a champ with absolutely no problems. Mine has a detachable box magizine, with standard 4 round mags.
