  1. http://www.cracked.com/article_18683_7-scientific-reasons-zombie-outbreak-would-fail-quickly.html For your reading pleasure....
  2. I had no idea mine was worth as much as the shotgun!
  3. Do you have a model of a Zero watching the other side?
  4. Hopefully you mean proficient, and not professional. I am barely one and by no means the other... Anyway, I should have said the HK .45 (USP Elite) It may have something to do with the 6 inch barrel... This is in comparison to my Kimber Raptor and Springfield Armory Operator .45s.
  5. No, I can't say that I had the best of everything...but I can say that I had the best that was offered at the time the decision was made to purchase item "x".

  11. You can usually find on on gunbroker for around $150 or so...
