The New Home Defense Weapon

Because nothing says “Home Defense” like a crew-served weapon.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get busy digging a gun position in the front yard, and then I need to get hot filling out a range card.

So much to do…

    You Sir, are a mad man.

    I’m going to have to get a tank now, aren’t I?

    Does it have a sister?

  3. Marcus says:

    Blacklight, if you get a tank I’ll let you mount this beast on top from the commander’s hatch. You’ll be the coolest kid on your whole block!

    A sister? Hmmm… I may have to work on that. Then maybe I could get some interlocking fields of fire going in the front yard to chop up a shambling mob of zombies.

    This is coming to Zombie DeCon 2012 with you, or I don’t even know you. Is she setup for -06 or 308?

  6. Marcus says:

    If I can make it do DeCon, I will definitely bring the gun. It’s chambered in 7.62 NATO, which means ammo is plentiful and relatively affordable. Not cheap, but far less expensive than 30’06.

    I may be bringing it out to the range this weekend for a test run. If I do, I’ll definitely post a range report here.

  7. blt says:

    Suh-weet. I’ve got a decent stash of 7.62 NATO that is getting old. Best to burn through it at Zombie DeCon.

    You know…sinister thought. You should get the barrel threaded for an AAC Silencer adaptor :)

  8. blt says:

    Oh, and nice supplies in the background :)

  9. Marcus says:

    A suppressor for it would be… elegant.

    Glad you noticed the supplies—I was wondering if anyone had picked up on them. ;-)

    Ready Project is local to me, so I recognized them…though I prefer another provider who is even more local.

    About the only thing taking Utah off the map is if Yellowstone lights off at full fury. Anything less than that, and this place is squared away.

    We’re overdue for a 7.7+ earthquake. When that happens, expect the news to be interviewing the celebrities who own property near Park City, and the recently arrived residents who can provide the proper hysteria. Otherwise, the locals are going to carry on in the tradition that your average mid-westerner does after a bad tornado or flood.

    Quite frankly, if it wasn’t for Yellowstone, I’d be insisting among a certain circle of folks that we buy some retreat-worthy property out here.

  11. My retirement dream is to restore a M3 Half-Track to functionality then pimp it out Zombie Apocalypse style. But until then…........ Marcus wins the cool shit in the inventory factor.

  12. Marcus says:

    Well, once you get the half-track up and running I’ll let you borrow the gun to mount on top. It will be most excellent.

    @Marcus…the M1A1 tank had a .50 cal mounted in the cupola of every Tank. But, my dream list would have been in the gifts of 2 mortar tubes attached to the rear of my bussel rack. Followed by an externally mounted .50 cal telfare device bore sighted to my gunners Thermal sight. Effective to 1500 meters, with single shots and no tracers.

  16. Marcus says:

    Mortars on the bussel rack eh? Interesting concept… sounds sort of Bolo-ish. You might have to have your wing man work as a fire direction center though.

    Now that I think more on it, if the mortars are on the M1A1—huge beast that it is—you ought to mount 120mm mortars. I just feel bad for the poor bastards that have to hang the rounds.

  17. caohaoim says:

    Alternatively, you could trailer a couple of NEMOs. Drop them behind a hill and be you own forward fire controller.

  18. Marcus says:

    This is starting to shape up to be some sort of concept system with associated MTOE. Interesting…
