Useful Apocalypse Vehicles

Apocalypse Bike by Benjamin Ransom

Apocalypse Bike by Benjamin Ransom

What Ride Will You Be Pimpin?

There will probably be plenty of abandoned vehicles in the Post-Apocalypse, but how many of them will actually be of use to you? You have to think that with vehicles and other debris blocking all the major roadways you will probably need something small and nimble to weave around obstacles, like a motorcycle or completely the opposite to plow over everything in your path, like a mammoth military truck. I did some interwebz picture hunting and found some of these badass vehicles that could be of use when the world is in ruins. Enjoy! :)

Urban Kevlar Security Hooded Suit

What will you be wearing to the End of the World?

I don’t know who makes this suit/hoodie but I thought it was freakin cool so I’m sharing it here. Supposedly, it’s made of kevlar and breathable neoprene. So not only is it stylish it can take bullets for you. I could see myself wearing something like this even though no one would even give a crap about what anyone else wore when the world has turned to ashes… haha… but it would go well with the gas mask I own. LOL.

Enjoy the pics. ^__^

Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 Rifle

Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 Rifle

A rifle that fits in your everyday pack

Did you ever think you could fit a full rifle in an ordinary sized backpack?! Well I didn’t either until I stumbled upon this compact portable rifle by Henry. Their U.S. Survival AR-7 is made up of three separate parts. When disassembled, all the pieces fit inside the impact-resistant, waterproof stock, and no worries should it take a trip overboard… cuz it FLOATS! I know it sounds Crazy!! It’s so awesomely portable that I am thinking of getting one just to have as a backup in my survival kit. But seriously, I still can’t believe how little space this gun takes up and because it’s chambered for .22LR caliber rounds you can carry a large quantity of ammunition, without adding much weight to your gear. When it comes to a portable gun that is useful for hunting small game or fending off bad guys in the Post-Apocalypse. The U.S. Survival AR-7 is absolutely.. Perfect.

Here is a demo video from their site and a few pics.

SRM Arms 1216 Tactical Shotgun

SRM Arms 1216 Tactical Shotgun

THE NEXT GENERATION OF THE TACTICAL SHOTGUN

I stumbled upon this crazy shotgun that can shoot 16 rounds in 6 seconds. It’s crazy! Just imagine taking down 16 zombies in a matter of seconds. It was way too cool not to share. :)

Introducing America’s next tactical and home-defense, semi-automatic shotgun, the SRM Model 1216. This revolutionary new design features a 16-round detachable magazine. The 1216 provides force multiplication and unsurpassed firepower for a single operator. With an ambidextrous shooting design, picatinny rail, and triple-faced hand-guard, the 1216 is a paradigm shift in the tactical shotgun industry. Additional NFA short-barreled models feature a 12-round (1212 model) or 8-round (1208 model) magazine.

 

SRM Arms 1216 Tactical Shotgun

Design Features of the SRM 1216 include:

  • Ergonomic compact design along with the flexibility of a detachable magazine provides unsurpassed firepower, force multiplication, and tactical advantages.
  • Rotary, Detachable high capacity magazine holding 8, 12, or 16 rounds of either 2 3/4 or 3 inch shotshells.
  • Semi-automatic action that self feeds following the rotation of the quad-tube, revolving magazine.
  • Roller delayed action provides fast cycling and reduced felt recoil.
  • Overall length of the 1216 model is only 34 inches with a standard 18 inch barrel, but the more compact 1212 and 1208 are available.
  • An integrated picatinny rail combined with a three face handguard rail offers the shooter a broad range of options for mounting optics, sights, lights and other tactical accessories.
  • Pushpin disassembly and break open design allows for easy field stripping and maintenance.
  • Ambidextrous receiver and controls can be set up for either right or left handed shooters.
  • NFA versions reduce the overall length of the gun to 28 or 25 inches, while still delivering a 12 or 8 round magazine.

Advanced Tactical Backpacks for Survival, Hunting and Hiking

Eberlestock Destroyer — Dry Earth Color

Eberlestock Destroyer — Dry Earth Color

In the Post-Apocalypse we will more likely be traveling by foot than in a motor vehicle. When your food supplies get low you will need to venture into the wilderness to hunt for game and gather edible plants and vegetation. But in order to bring your resources back to your camp site or safe house you will need a nice Big pack to carry everything in. Backpacks with internal frames that can support all the extra weight.

Here are a couple backpacks that would definitely get the job done and can also carry a bunch of your survival items. Some even have bow/rifle holding compartments. ^__^

 

1. ALPS OutdoorZ Commander Freighter Frame Plus Pack Bag, 5250 Cubic Inches

Product Description

When you get ALPS OutdoorZ Commander Pack Bag, you’re getting the Commander Freighter Frame PLUS a 5250 cubic inch Pack Bag. The Pack Bag is great for getting all your gear to your base camp. The Pack Bag includes a front pocket, spotting scope pocket, rifle holder, and two side accessory hinged pockets, in addition to the main compartment. Once you empty out your Pack Bag, it can be easily detached so the Commander can be used as a Freighter Frame also. The Commander Freighter Frame allows you to haul your meat from one place to the next. The Commander comes equipped with a unique lashing system to secure your meat. With as much weight as you’ll be carrying, padded waist belt and shoulder straps are a must. There are pockets for your flash light and knife, as well as a holder for your shooting stix on the lashing straps. With the Commander Pack Bag, you really get two products in one, a Pack Bag AND a Freighter Frame!

  • Size: 5250 cubic inches; Weight: 2 pounds 3 ounces; Total weight with frame: 7 pounds 5 ounces
  • Top loading; Lower door access; #10 zippers

2. TETON Sports Fox 5200 Internal Frame Backpack

Product Description

The Teton Fox 75+10L internal frame backpack is a great fit for the serious hiker. Comfort-wise, the Fox is outfitted with dual aluminum stays that adjust to the shape of your back, along with contoured shoulder, lumbar, and hip pads. In addition, the height of the shoulder straps is adjustable, helping the pack accommodate a wide range of torso lengths. The upshot is a comfortable, ergonomic pack that won’t put undue stress on your back and shoulders even after a full day of hiking.

On the interior, the 5,187-cubic-inch pack holds all your gear in its top-loading main compartment, expandable front section, and unique sleeping bag compartment. Meanwhile, hikers looking for an easy place to access their first-aid kits and mini flashlights will delight in the pair of hideaway side pockets. The design concludes with an attached rain fly that keeps your gear dry and is compatible with separately sold hydration systems.

  • Rugged internal frame backpack with a capacity of 5,187 cubic inches or 85 liters
  • Dual aluminum stays with contoured shoulder, lumbar, and hip pads

3. Eberlestock Destroyer Pack. Dry Earth.

Product Description

We hereby enter the world of “conventional” packs with some unconventional backpacks. Please understand, they’re only unconventional in the sense that they’re nicer, and more fully detailed than other packs in this class. It seems that most manufacturers have taken so many shortcuts in the trend toward minimalism that they have forgotten what it’s like to live out of a backpack. In the tradition of our focus on practical field use, we’ve built the 69 liter V69 Destroyer to be extremely capable and comfortable load bearing systems. With very similar features, the main difference between the two is one of scale. Choose the slightly more compact V69 if you need smaller capacity and prefer to go as light as possible. Something else you’ll like about these packs: For their scale, they’re extremely light weight. We’ve carefully chosen new materials that give the optimum balance between high strength and light weight, and arranged them very cleverly, if we do say so ourselves. Every feature and detail has a purpose, and many of them have multiple purposes. The V-type packs are double-deckers… with both top loading and front loading features, it’s easy to find your gear wherever in the pack you have it stowed. It also has the great benefit of a full array of compression and lash straps. Each surface of the pack can be compressed and each set of straps can be used to quickly grapple something to the pack. So you have a very simple and versatile, and ultimately practical backpack. Includes a fitted rain cover that pulls out of a bottom pocket.

Product Features

  • 69 Liter capacity!
  • Front and Top Loading.
  • Hydration Compatable.
  • Lightweight, rugged construction with 420D ripstop nylon.
  • Fitted Raincover Included!

DIY Pre Post Apocalypse Survival Kit Backpack

The Book of Eli — Denzel Washington

The Book of Eli — Denzel Washington — I Wonder what kind of goodies are in his backpack? LOLz

I know I talk a lot about zombie survival, alien invasions and other crazy Apocalyptic scenarios, but most of that is to keep a somewhat serious topic (human survival) to more of a fun level. I think we all know though the possibilities of a complete collapse of civilization. An Apocalypse that would be caused by none other than us humans (nuclear warfare, viral epidemic… etc.) It would be an era of survivors vs other survivors. The “haves” and the “have-nots”. If you have something someone else wants desperately, they will fight for it, or even kill for it. So you will need to be prepared. The truth is that if you are more prepared than your opponent then you’ll have a bigger chance to win and survive another day.

So I’ve decided to share a list of items I have in my personal Post Apocalypse survival kit. A survival kit you can simply put together yourself and may already have a few of the items in your home. Some other items may take a little time to acquire but is worth having on the list. Trust me on it. ^__^

A few other tips to add: build a team (this is not a movie where you kick everyone’s ass on your own), stay in shape (nobody will turn away a strong arm and useful pair of legs), learn survival skills (like making a fire, nobody will invest in someone without any skills), learn to think critically and tactically (Stay sharp). Try to go camping or hiking every so often, to test your skills of survival in the wilderness.

DIY Pre Post Apocalypse Survival Kit List

  • A Medium Sized Duffle Bag or Survival Backpack: To hold all the contents I’m about to list so you can just grab and go if needed.
  • A Metal Container or Survival Tin: Those Maxwell House gourmet coffee tins work. The container should be metal so it can be used to heat water over a campfire. You can also store your smaller items in it.
  • Duct TapeIt’s waterproof and can hold almost anything together. It can help you build many functional things as shown on Mythbusters. ^__^ Duct tape also works great when you don’t have a triangular bandage: it holds on dressings, works well for fastening a splint, etc.
  • Emergency Blanket (Thermal blankets): These are those little aluminium- looking blankets you can buy at any camping store. They are good for making into an emergency shelter, keeps you warm, and is reflective (i.e. can be spotted from aircraft…. if you want to be found).
  • Paracord Rope: For tying things down, lashing tents, and tying up bad guys.
  • Waterproof Matches (stormproof matches): For starting fires, of course!
  • Fire Starter Kit (Flint Striker): Also for starting fires!
  • Survival Knife: A blade always comes in handy! For cutting branches or defending yourself.
  • LED Flash Light: Make sure to have some extra batteries.
  • Candle Stub: Makes a great fire starter, and can keep you warm in an enclosed space if you can’t light a fire.
  • Band-aids: Always have one or two (or three or four…)
  • Energy Bars (food ration): Have a couple in your kit for backup if your food source is running low and you need that extra energy.
  • Survival Water: So you can drink when you’re thirsty. A person should have at least 1 gallon of water per day. So finding water is your 1st priority!
  • Large Safety Pins or Fish Hooks: for fishing
  • Small Safety Pins: Good for holding slings together, etc.
  • Fishing Line: To use with fish hook for fishing, or to make into snares for animals.
  • Piece of Crayon: Will act as a fire starter
  • Baking Soda: A little of this mixed with water will help rehydrate a dehydrated person; mixed into a thick paste it helps on mosquito bites and bee stings.
  • Rubber Gloves: Anytime you’re administering first aid to someone, you should wear gloves!
  • Antiseptic Wipes: To clean out cuts etc.
  • First Aid Gauze: For any larger cuts.
  • Tinfoil: Can be used in lieu of a mirror to signal planes or boats, and takes up less space. Can also be modified into a water carrier if needed.
  • Water Purifying Tablets: These will help purify your drinking water… check their expiry date, most tablets are only good for a year or so once the bottle’s been opened.

Keep in mind that this survival kit list is for last minute emergency situations. Something easy enough so you can grab and go and is your life support till you find new resources. I would recommend you make a survival kit for each member of your family just to be extra safe. Best of luck and I hope you never need to use it. ^__^

They also have some premade survival kits and survival backpacks if that makes it easier for you. You can see some of them here.

Girls that would Kick Ass in the Apocalypse

Cameron — Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles

Cameron — Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles

We all know how important females are in the Post-Apocalypse. Without them we will be unable to pro-create and our race will diminish that much faster. Usually it’s up to us men to protect them with our interests in weapons, physical strength and Epic prowess. But if you’re lucky, your girl will be protecting you too when the SH*T goes down. So guys, make sure to take care of them ladies out there. Without them there’s no point in surviving. ^__^

So here is a list I put together of Girls that could kick some major ass. Girls that we all would hope to have on our team if the end was near. Enjoy! ^__~

Fox — Wanted — Angelina Jolie

Fox — Wanted — Angelina Jolie

Fox

Wanted — Angelina Jolie

As a member of a secret league of assassins, Fox has the ability to bend the path of bullets. Angelina Jolie has played her fair share of impressive heroine’s in the past, but Fox takes the cake.

 

Trinity — The Matrix — Carrie-Anne Moss

Trinity — The Matrix — Carrie-Anne Moss

Trinity

The Matrix — Carrie-Anne Moss

Trinity was our initial exposure to the world that is The Matrix with the opening of the first film as she took down several enemies and leapt tall buildings with a single bound. Little did we know, that was only the beginning of several bullet-time action sequences to come. She would be extremely helpful if the world got taken over by computers and Artificial Intelligence.

 

Selene — Underworld — Kate Beckinsale

Selene — Underworld — Kate Beckinsale

Selene

Underworld — Kate Beckinsale

She is proficient with many weapons, both medieval and modern. Modern firearms that she uses include the Walther P99 and a variety of automatic machine pistols. In both films, she is seen jumping from a ledge at least one hundred feet and landing without injury. Sadly, she wouldn’t help much in the pro-creation department but can definitely kick ass. However due to her being a vampire would have a totally different menu of items on her survival food checklist. >__<

 

Cameron — Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles — Summer Glau

Cameron — Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles — Summer Glau

Cameron Phillips

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles — Summer Glau

Another female that fails to create human life. But she’s a frakkin Terminator… need I say more.

 

Abigail Whistler — Blade Trinity — Jessica Beal

Abigail Whistler — Blade Trinity — Jessica Beal

Abigail Whistler

Blade Trinity — Jessica Beal

Just in case Selene is not on your side in a Vampire Post-Apocalypse. Abigail is a very serious and skilled fighter, one of the best in the Nightstalkers unit. She is a master-class archer and uses some modified arrows against vampires. She also wields an hypertechnological UVA arrow, which she uses as a sword for slicing vampires in two. And yes… she can make babies. That’s a plus for Humans. ^__^

 

Hit-Girl — Kick-Ass — Chloë Grace Moretz

Hit-Girl — Kick-Ass — Chloë Grace Moretz

Hit-Girl

Kick-Ass — Chloë Grace Moretz

Hit-Girl probably kicks more ass than any other character in Kick-Ass—and she’s only 11 years old. The daughter of cop-turned-vigilante Big Daddy, Hit-Girl is a foul-mouthed fighter with an affinity for blades.

 

Best Guns for Home Defense and Apocalypse Survival

21 Apr 2012 / 0 Comments / in Survival Gear, Weapons
Sophia Bush w/ Shotgun — The Hitcher

Sophia Bush w/ Shotgun — The Hitcher

I’ve been doing some extensive research on shotguns, handguns and rifles recently and these are some of my top favorite “somewhat affordable” guns for home defense and apocalypse survival. Again, please note, I am no expert but I believe these are very useful against hordes of undead zombies, raged grizzly bears, alien space invaders and most of all from stupid human beings in life and death situations. ^__^

The Shotgun — Mossberg 930SPX

Mossberg 930SPX 12ga 18" 8 Shot

Mossberg 930SPX 12ga 18" 8 Shot

This by far is my favorite shotgun and it’s a bang for the buck. At around $669 the Mossberg 930 Special Purpose Autoloading Shotgun features 18 1/2″ barrel, picatinny rail, magazine extension, ghost ring rear sight and a full length black synthetic stock with a pistol grip.

Did I mention it’s a semi-auto? ^__^

The Rifle — Bushmaster MOE MID-LENGTH

Bushmaster® MOE MID-LENGTH

Bushmaster® MOE MID-LENGTH

For about $1000 you can get this bad boy. An AR-15 style rifle is great for urban city environments and hold a lot of ammo. It has a pretty decent range and due to it’s power and accuracy is a must have in your arsenal of weapons for the Post-Apocalypse.

Bushmaster now offers the number one AR-style platform in America, now enhanced with Magpul original equipment. Featuring a 16″ barrel that is chrome-lined in both bore and chamber, Magpul MBUS rear flip sight, the Magpul MOE adjustable buttstock with strong A-frame design and streamlined look, and theMagpul MOE pistol grip that accepts MIAD storage cores, 30-round PMAG, and is available in black, foliage green and flat dark earth.

The Handgun/Pistol — Smith & Wesson M&P .40

Smith & Wesson M&P .40

Smith & Wesson M&P .40

Another must have weapon is a trusty handgun/pistol. At a cost of around $450 I choose the Smith & Wesson M&P .40 You should know by now that I’m all about the American made stuff. lol. If you’re not a good shot I would recommend opting for the 9mm. It holds more rounds and ammo is cheaper. But I personally love the look of this gun and many have said it’s the “Perfection” that Glock should have been. I mean M & P does stand for Magnificent & Perfection. ^__~

Meet the M&P from Smith & Wesson. Reinforced polymer chassis, superior ergonomics, ambidextrous controls, proven safety features. The new standard in reliability when your job is to serve and protect and your life is on the line.

Dishonored Debut Trailer from Bethesda Softworks

20 Apr 2012 / 0 Comments / in Kick-Ass Stuff

For you video game fanatics, you gotta check out this new debut trailer of Dishonored, a new game coming out by Bethesda Softworks (Creator of Fallout 3, Oblivion, Skyrim). It feels like a cross between Assassin’s Creed x Bioshock with a little bit of V for Vendetta. Anyways, I thought it was frakkin cool so I’m sharing it with you all. So please enjoy! ^__^

Video Game description:

Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with strange technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man.

In Dishonored, creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.

Zombie Apocalypse Survival Weapons and Equipment

19 Apr 2012 / 0 Comments / in Survival Gear, Weapons

If you haven’t had the chance to read the How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse Guide then check that out. Zombies(if they were real) require a different arsenal of weapons and equipment to fend them off. Here are some great options that could possibly help you survive another day. Rawr!!! :D

Barnett Ghost 400 CRT Crossbow

Barnett Ghost 400 CRT Crossbow

Price: $299.99-$999.99 from Barnett Crossbows
Practical use: Zombie slaying
Pro: Reusable ammo
Con: It’s not a gun

The only way to kill a zombie is to shoot it through the brain or burn it. Guns and flamethrowers are unavailable on Amazon, so you’ll have to settle for a crossbow.

The Barnett Ghost 400 “is fully capable of taking down large game, small game, and yes, even zombies,” said Barnett spokesman Major Person. “Head shots are a must for killing zombies and the Barnett is the most accurate crossbow on the market. Shoot to kill.”

Husqvarna Chainsaw

Husqvarna Chainsaw

Price: $199.95-$459.95 from Husqvarna
Practical use: Lop limbs off zombies
Pro: Delivers massive trauma
Con: High potential for collateral damage

Meet the chainsaw, the star of every hillbilly horrorshow. One list author on Amazon described the Husqvarna as “perfect if you’re stuck in a corner” with the living dead.

A chainsaw was spectacularly effective at dismembering undead Nazis in the 2009 film “Dead Snow.” But don’t try to saw zombies from a moving vehicle. You can accidentally bisect your friends, as shown in the 2004 remake of the cult classic “Dawn of the Dead.”

Hanwei Orchid Katana

Hanwei Orchid Katana

Price: $299-$1,599 from CAS Hanwei
Practical use: Zombie decapitation
Pro: The sheer awesomeness of owning a katana
Con: Explaining to your wife that you bought a katana

“A katana needs to be at the top of anyone’s zombie survival kit if they’re hoping for any kind of long term survival,” said Blake Pogue, spokeswoman for CAS Hanwei, maker of this folded steel Orchid katana. “I mean, who is going to be making bullets after the apocalypse? I’d go for a no-frills decapitation when dispatching the zombie horde.”

Decapitation wouldn’t kill the zombie — a brain shot is required for that — but it does allow for escape.

Anti Riot Helmet

Anti Riot Helmet

Price: $61.99 from Rothco
Practical use: Protection against brain-eating zombies
Pro: Visor deflects airborne fluids from the undead
Con: Windshield wipers not included

“Since zombies are well known for their appetite for eating brains, the high impact plastic construction should prove helpful in keeping one’s mind intact in such an emergency,” said Rothco sales director John Ottaviano.

Also, the visor will protect you from flying zombie fluids so you won’t get infected. “The last thing you want is to smash a zombie in the face and have the blood spray hit you in the eye or mouth,” said one Amazon lister.

Damascus Protective Gear

Damascus Protective Gear

Price: $545.95 from Damascus Protective Gear
Practical use: Protection against zombie bites
Pro: Protection against zombie bites (that’s worth mentioning twice)
Con: Unsuitable attire for beach lounging

Bite me. That’s what you can tell the zombies after you don this tooth-breaking FX1 FlexForce modular hard-shell, full-body crowd control armor.

An armored human “can get mauled by a zombie and still be a survivor,” said one Amazon list-writer. Bite prevention is essential, according to the Centers for Disease Control, which says “zombies are often depicted as being created by an infectious virus, which is passed on via bites and contact with bodily fluids.”
