Twelve .22s – Most Popular Caliber in 2012

14 Dec 2012 / 0 Comments / in Survival Gear, Weapons

Are you ready for the End of the World?

ati-stg-44

ATI StG 44

American Tactical Imports provides a variety of German-built .22s designed to mirror the features of full-caliber guns. For 2012, they will be extending their inventory to include the ATI StG 44, a replica of the WWII-era German Sturmgewehr 44 combat rifle. This .22 semi-automatic rifle accepts a high-capacity magazine, arrives in a period shipping crate with appropriate military markings, and has been constructed to be as historically accurate as possible

cz-455-varmint-evolution

CZ 455 Varmint Evolution

Available in a wide variety of rimfire options — including .22 LR, .22 Mag., .17 HMR and .17 Mach 2 — CZ’s radical-looking, switch-barrel bolt-action is a fine update to its more traditionally modeled 455 series. While the Model 455 Varmint Evolution may have received mixed reactions to its aesthetics, one thing is for sure: It shoots like a dream at 50 yards, making it an ideal varminting rimfire.

mossberg-464-spx-in-22lr

Mossberg 464 SPX

If an AR-15 style tactical .22 rifle and a lever-action cowboy carbine had a love child, it would look just like the latest 464 SPX rifle from Mossberg. With an 18-inch barrel, matte black finish, and steel rifle sights, the 464’s six position stock and tri-rail forend provide a unique blend of cutting-edge gun features and old-fashioned reliability.

ruger-lcr-22

Ruger LCR-22

Introduced with the SR22P, Ruger’s new Lightweight Compact Revolver chambered in .22 LR features an eight-round magazine, along with square-notch rear and fixed-blade front sights. With a barrel length of 1.875 inches, this lightweight, smallbore snubbie makes for an excellent carry option.

ruger-sr22

Ruger SR22P

Ruger is a long time industry leader in .22 plinking and hunting with their ever popular 10/22 semi-automatic rifles. In 2011, they listened to customer feedback and introduced the 22/45 pistol and 10/22 rifle with barrels threaded for sound suppressors, a factory 25-round magazine for the 10/22 rifle, the 10-shot Single-Ten single-action revolver and an eight-shot rimfire version of the popular SP101 double-action revolver. For 2012, look for the new polymer-framed SR22 semi-auto pistol and the LCR-22, an eight-shot rimfire understudy for the LCR .38 caliber concealed-carry revolvers.

ruger-1022-takedown

Ruger 10/22 Takedown

Touted as “America’s No. 1 .22,” Ruger reintroduced its famous 10/22 semi-auto as a takedown rifle earlier this year, and it was met with glowing reviews. The 10/22 Takedown is easy to disassemble and put back together, making it incredibly portable — and it’s super accurate too — and with its two-piece, black stock and stainless steel barrel, it’s certainly a treat for the eyes.

ruger-22-45-lite

Ruger 22/45 Lite

With a gold-anodized aluminum finish, this futuristic-looking trail gun almost looks like something out of Star Wars. The Ruger 22/45 Lite features fully adjustable target-type sights, along with a threaded barrel that accepts suppressors (where legal, of course).

smith-wesson-mp15-22

Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 MOE

Smith & Wesson made big news years ago when it introduced a .22-caliber version its M&P15 rifle, the M&P15-22. Now, the rimfire AR is available with Magpul MOE furniture. Our sister magazine, Petersen’s RifleShooter, labeled this rifle its favorite tactical .22, and for good reason: It’s lightweight, reliable and functions exactly the same as a standard 5.56-chambered AR.

smith-wesson-mp22

Smith & Wesson M&P22

Available with 10- or 12-round magazines, the Smith & Wesson M&P22 is everything a shooter should expect from S&W’s M&P centerfire series. With a magazine disconnect safety and an ambidextrous thumb safety, the M&P22 is an excellent learning tool for young or inexperienced shooters, and of course, it’s a joy to shoot.

Taurus Tracker 992

Taurus Tracker 992

Taurus calls its Tracker 992 double-action revolver “the most versatile Tracker ever,” due to its easily removable cylinder, transforming it from a .22 LR to a .22 Mag. with just the push of a button. The Tracker 992 features a transfer bar mechanism, which prevents hammer striking unless the trigger is pulled completely to the rear, along with Taurus’ signature rubber grip and the Taurus Security System.

umarex-usa-22-lr-uzi

Umarex USA .22LR UZI

Umarex USA will be importing .22LR semi-automatic pistols and rifles based on the famous UZI submachine gun. These rimfire guns are branded IWI, which is the original UZI maker, but they are manufactured by Carl Walther in Germany. The rifle, modeled after the UZI carbine, includes a folding stock and faux suppressor. The pistol, based on the Micro UZI, will accept the same 20-round magazines as the rifle. Umarex will also be shipping a replica of a Colt 1911 semi-auto designed to shoot .22.

walther-p22q

Walther P22

Walther is releasing a new model of the popular P22 pistol. This version will include an integrated red laser sight.

My Mossberg Tactical .22 Rifle

My Mossberg Tactical .22 Rifle

How to make your AR Style Tactical Rifle more intimidating

I recently purchased a Mossberg Tactical .22 rifle as my backup weapon for survival. It is a small caliber long range rifle good for hunting small game and also can deter bad guys if needed. Definitely not a bad choice and better in a stealth survival situation especially when equipped with subsonic ammo. And speaking of ammo, .22LR ammo is uber cheap so you can have lots of fun at the gun range. ^__^

A bunch of my friends have been asking about my rifle setup and wondering how much it costs to get it the way it looks. So I decided to list all the add-ons I have on it. If you own an AR Style Rifle here is my list to making it look more badass or as they call it more “Tacti-COOL“. ^__^

Bushnell Banner 3-9x40mm Rifle Scope w/ 6″ Relief $76.64
UTG Max Strength Quick Detach Picatinny 1″ Rings $19.31

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

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.

Best Guns for Home Defense and Apocalypse Survival

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

Did I mention it’s a semi-auto? ^__^

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.

The Handgun/Pistol — 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.

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.”

Kick-Ass Blades from ZombieTools.net

17 Apr 2012 / 0 Comments / in Survival Gear, Weapons
The Vakra from Zombietools.net

The Vakra from Zombietools.net

No matter how many bullets you try to stock up on for your guns. There will be no other weapon better than a good blade. A weapon that can defeat hordes of zombies or frenzied, starving humans desperate to kill for that last can of Spam in your pack. Because when the SH*T goes down we’re not talking about how will you survive for a couple of days but more like a couple of years and you will definitely run out of bullets by then if all you had was your trusty sidearm.

So I’d like to introduce you all to a group of zombie-apocalypse fanatics zombietools.net based out of Missoula, Montana.

Joey Arbour: Master-at-Arms
Chris Lombardi: Minister of Propaganda
Maxon McCarter: Chief of Surgery
Rob Lawlor: New Wave Ninja

Clay Cooper: (military adviser)
Wes Saint John: (artist)
Corey: (shop monkey)

Their motto:

We are swordsmen and metalsmiths who create blades, and soon, other gear, that will increase your odds of surviving a zombie apocalypse.

And they are mad serious. No joke. They make some kick-ass blades and I’m going to share with you their process on how they are made.

Using American made steel and aluminum this is their basic process:

  1. We cut the basic sword shape out of bars of quality 5160 spring steel. 5160 is one of the best steels to use for longer blades like ours as it is more durable and less prone to breakage than other steels (like stainless).
  2. For some of our blade models, we will then heat and hammer the blade into shape.
  3. We grind the blade to within 20% of its final edge, and give the blade its “distal taper,” the gradual reduction of blade material from its handle to its point, which reduces weight and gives it its balance.
  4. We then heat the blade to just above 1500 degrees and quench it in oil. This hardens the blade. We then put the blades in a tempering kiln to take them back up to around 450 degrees, which tempers it, or returns flexibility to the blade. The blade is then cleaned and polished.
  5. Next, we cut our basic handle shapes from T6 aluminum, we attach the handle with steel pins, and then sculpt the handle to its final shape using grinders and files.
  6. Finally, the blade is spattered with a beeswax/tar concoction and painted with ferric chloride acid which etches a pattern into the blade.

You can order blades from them at their website zombietools.net. They give an estimated time of about 4-5 weeks to build your blade and also do custom work upon request.

Now check out some of these kick-ass pics. ^__^
