  • The owner of my favorite local gun shop just ordered himself an Icon CJ-3 and is considering getting a vanity plate for it reading "THXOBMA."

    But, he also stocks tons of "zombie survival" junk to sell to the rubes, too.
  • Anyone that buys a firearm because obammy is gunna take our guns is too stupid to own a gun. But if this is the side effect I'm good with it.

    "The numbers seem to support his argument. In Virginia, for example, gun ownership soared 73% between 2006-2011. Over the same period gun related violent crimes actually fell 24 percent."

    Here's to hoping the Teminator goes "shopping" there.

    ....unless he was sincere. Obama's the best thing to happen to the gun industry since the cold war.
  • "I think (Obama's) going to try and make something happen this time," said Gauhran, who reported Black Friday gun sales shot up 30-35% over his expectations.

    Workman agreed. And he said while he can't be sure, he's confident the growing gun ownership is helping to cut crime because more "intelligent" criminals know more people are packing.


    Well, I'm convinced.
  • Well, is anyone actually worried about those sparkly vampires? The werewolves are just kindred souls, and witches are just misunderstood. Now the zombies on the other hand .....

    I'm guessing this trend had more to do with changes in gun carry laws than the election of president Obama. Although the NRA had done nothing but tell lie after lie stating that Obama has grand plans to confiscate guns and give the UN control of our gun ownership. They also put on the cover of American Rifleman, the claim that the best way to beat Obama was to purchase their "challenge coin". Seriously WTF?

    Yet, despite Romney's long history of being a complete anti-gunner, including signing a ban of assault rifles and a ban on semi-autos, they endorsed him for president. I've been a life member of the NRA for 25 years and I'm seriously considering cancelling that membership. They've put hack partisan politics over gun rights as their main agenda.

    Believe it or not, you can buy both silver plated bullet AND zombie loads. Seriously are gun owners really that stupid? Some gun ranges also hold zombie shoots.

    "Just how stupid do they think we are"?

    Pretty damn. And they're right. You are unfortunately an outlier, NFA.

    He was sincere. He donated $1,000 to Obama's reelection -- "laundered" through his wife's parents just in case -- and not just because his business has been booming.
  • is it just me that is actually hoping for a zombie apocalypse?
  • They're right about the zombie apocalypse, just wrong about who the zombies are. If you want to see a group of unthinking, shambling rubes who are hostile to brains, look no further than the people stocking up on crazy amounts of guns and ammunition because of Obama's reelection/zombies/the end of the world/etc.

    So much this.
  • Right. Very serious is this.
  • The "Zombie apocalypse" is just a politically-correct, tongue-in-cheek way of saying what is more commonly called "S*** Hits the Fan": a short- to mid-term breakdown in infrastructure and order due to any number of causes, ranging from natural disasters (q.v., Hurricane Katrina) or a pandemic disease outbreak to a major social/economic/political crisis (q.v., Iraqi Civil War, American Civil War or, on a smaller scale, the 1992 LA riots).

    Compare with TEOTWAWKI ("The End of the World As We Know It"), which is a long-term collapse of civilization and return to a pre-industrial (likely Dark Ages) lifestyle due to a more extreme disaster (like an asteroid strike).

    // kind of looking forward to the Zombie Apocalypse

    No, nobody actually believes that zombies are real. It's just fun, and you aren't going to hurt anyone's feelings, like if you had a ginger shoot. Plus, if you're prepared for the zombie apocalypse, you're prepared for just about anything, including earthquakes, floods, plagues, etc... It fact, the CDC published a 'zombie preparedness' pamphlet, for that very reason. It's a fun way to game out disaster scenarios without getting all upset because floods, earthquakes, fires and plagues can actually happen and kill people. Sure, there's the occasional nutcase that takes it too far, but for the most part it's all fun and games with the added benefit of actually learning how to survive a disaster that could really happen.
  • I manage a gun store.
    Zombie ammo, zombie guns, zombie targets, zombie scopes, zombie ammo cans, zombie pre-prepared food

    I know it's a crock. My customers know it's a crock. Most people I see buy the crap because it looks cool.

    There was a spike right after Obama was elected the first time but that's not the primary driving force behind it now.

    /Rockford IL's crime rate is one of the highest in the country.
  • The anti-zombie stuff is just to be silly - standard ammo with garish printing on the boxes. It's a marketing thing to get some sales off of shows like "The Walking Dead" and the Resident evil movies.

    ...although some of it's practical, in a sense. If you prepare for the classic "zombie apocalypse," you're going to be ready for just about anything. Even the government and private response trainers use it as a scenario to throw at their response teams, to get them to think about random events and not be so inflexible. 

    For example
  • Nobody posted the Hornady ZOMBIES ammo pic yet?

    I'd do it...but my phone sux.
  • If the pundit yelling on the TV tells you to buy something, you buy it.
  • If a gunowner wanted something to actually worry about all one would have to do is look back to the 5-4 SCOTUS Heller decision. Just sayin.

    / and, yes, I'm as 100% sure as you are that NOBODY wants to take away your guns
    // as a country we have abosolutely NOTHING in common with the UK or Australia. Hell, we don't even speak the same language
  • ZombieMax ammo...I mean.
