    Ok, I'm sorry but what the hell is with everyone's obsession with "zombies" these days??? Everybody all the sudden is obsessed with the idea of zombies! TV shows like American Guns, Sons Of Guns making episodes about it, shooting range targets with pictures of zombies on them, ammunition companies like Hornady making special "Zombie type" ammo, and people running around talking about what they'd do and preparations they've made as if it is/can actually happen!! I think it's absolutely ridicules and just don't get it at all. It can't be that I'm too old because I'm 23, so what is it with "zombies"?! :dunno:


    Rant Off. :supergrin:

    Some people like to use it as an excuse to prep for whatever disaster is common in their area. Zombies basically equal looters, etc.

    Some people just think it's fun.

    The rest are just nuts.

    I guess I have him, the homo from the Facebook movie, and the makers of "Zombieland" to thank for creating the most moronic craze since Y2K. :upeyes:

    Zombies are FUN!!!!

    It's also pretty good for the worse case EVER! If you can survive a Zombie Apoc, everything else is a a cake walk.

    I was a zombie movie fan before they became mainstream, I almost hate to admit it now as a gun owner. I'm waiting on the zombie ammo to go on clearance so I can stock up though. lol

    The zombie craze with the gun industry is just getting ridiculous IMO.

    The craze is because it's just FUN. The movie Zombieland and the currect AMC production of "The Walking Dead" was/is filmed close to where I live. It's pumped a LOT of money into our local economy. Love it!!

    Tell ya what,,,, with the recent outbreak of that flesh eating bacteria, you just never know what it may transform or mutate into. :shocked:

    um, entertainment? Far as the gun things lately it's actually made a lot of the stuff a bit lighter and fun. Very few people I know buy guns to be all serious, most are having fun

    Let me tell you a little secret. Zombies aren't just the undead. You figure it out.

    That's it. I am shooting you a little when I meet you. I hope you are for real.

    I think MasterShake is quite possibly a zombie himself dispatched to log onto Glock Talk to subside the whole truth around zombies so we let our guard down. Please someone check him out to keep us zombie free.

    Zombies cover all the above...occupy wallstreet hippies, looters, crack heads breaking into your house to steal anything to fund their addiction, drunks crawling into your kids bedroom window thinking its their house, the UK rioters that fired bombed homes and business's, the Rodney king rioters that destroyed LA... etc etc.

    Plus for some... its just a way to have a little fun with SHTF fantasy. I try not to get bent out of shape over it.

    For the most current zombie converts, we are awaiting the new (Fall) season of The Walking Dead on AMC.

    As for "aren't just the undead." I cannot think of a better metaphor for the Obama administration and its cohorts.

    The zombie apocalypse is just goofy shorthand for when everything goes wrong. Competely wrong.
    I also post over on Zombie Squad; we use the term and scenarios to get people into disaster preparation and for volunteer work within our communities. As in, "If you're ready for the Zombie Apocalypse, you're ready for anything."
