wood and steel....they just don't make 'em like that anymore.  I would bet the AR-15 I'm building now will break down long before my 1918 American Enfield. 

My Dad has a surplus Lee Enfield and a 40-year-old Mossberg 400, and both still shoot fantastic. Some blued steel a tree bits, and nothing else.

Another fun thing about old Russian guns is that they break down really, REALLY fast. The SKS completely disassembles for cleaning with two pins-one to take off the receiver cover and one to take off the gas tube. Hose down the bolt, carrier, piston, spring and reciever with some shotgun cleaner, ram a swab down the barrel and gas tube, wipe everything down and put it back together, it takes all of 5 minutes.

Very nice! I plan on having a collection of Russian guns whenever it is I get my license.

Also, first .22,

ISSC Mk22 SCAR .22 clone. Looks awesomesauce! :3

Good thing to collect, they're cheap as shit. My friend's store has Russian SKSes for $165, SVT-40s for $250, Mosin-Nagants for $120 and Tokarevs for $170. I could buy one of each for less than the price of a lot of American-made guns. And it's not like any of them are bad guns, it's just that there are approximately a bazillion of them floating around. They sell SKSes and Nagants in 10-packs.

Out getting some practice with one of my weapons of choice, a Russian surplus SKS:


Built like a tank, respectively accurate, shoots the second-cheapest and most-common round in the world ($0.25/bullet FTW!), and with a great big steel plate on the butt for face smaeshing. Plus, they're cheap as hell. They're so cheap that my friend's store uses them as pre-order bonuses for expensive guns.

Plus, I just ordered this earlier today from aforementioned store:


Hatsan Escort MarineGuard 12-gauge shotgun. 8 rounds of buckshot and a nickle finish.

You still have the weight of the fuel to worry about, though. A kilo of gas contains about 47 megajoules of energy, a kilo of wood only about 16.

That means that if you had a 20-gallon gas tank, and assuming that you had a steam engine that can convert wood to energy at the same rate an internal combustion engine (Which is a looooooong stretch), you would need about 160 kilograms of wood. That's about what a small tree weighs.

Don't really see how that'd matter all that much, considering all the lootable buioldings etc.

You really want to stop for fuel every 20 feet?

Imagine the stereotypical coal-powered train and massive trailer the size of a rail car full of coal. Now imagine that that's only enough to keep that train moving for a few hundred kilometers, at best. And then imagine that coal stores more potential energy than anything else readily available and combustible, save petroleum-based fuels.

Also, steam engines are pretty inefficient. You'll be burning a lot of trees and coal to keep one running.

I could write a novel on apocalypse survival vehicles, but I'll just take a picture of my driveway to sum it up pretty well:


2010 Kawasaki KLR650 enduro bike, perfect for the solo traveler looking to move quickly, quietly and efficiently through a post-apocalyptic landscape.

2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ, perfect for the solo or small group of travelers looking to travel wherever the hell the want to.

I wouldn't count on anything, since essentially the entire Infinity Ward team 'Fuck you, Activision, we're going home!' and started their own studio.

And when I say 'essentially the entire team', I mean the founders and about 20 guys with 'Lead' or 'Head' in their job descriptions.

Yeah, I've seen them all sprinkled everywhere, but apparently Canada filters out the eskibros, because the closest thing I've ever met to someone acting like that is a regular hockey fan.

My younger brother is an Eski-Bro.  Embarrassed

If that comic is roughly indicative of the quality, I'd say that statement is in the same ballpark as 'Those who've never had AIDs are missing out!'

I maintain that it comes from a lack of hands-on experience with the subject matter.

Er, she's in the middle of dying with the Castle trying to kill everyone else. This is not enough for you? Phew! Tough crowd.

The problem I have with GG is that there's way too many damn characters, and their names are way too hard to keep track of.
