Just in Case or for All the Time

Mossberg Model 500 J.I.C.
Mossberg Model 500 J.I.C.

For this price, it is totally acceptable to purchase a second or third, or tenth, shotgun. Mossberg has been kind enough to pack up your ultimate zombie apocalypse survival kit that includes the ever-popular Mossberg 500 pump-action, pistol-grip shotgun. The shotgun is sealed up in a re-sealable clear bag and packed in a waterproof tube, so you can bury it for cache storage if need be. The Mossberg Model 500 JIC also includes a survival kit. The Model 500 12-gauge shotgun features an 18.5-inch close-quarters barrel, a black synthetic stock and pistol grip, and holds six rounds of 2.75-inch shells.

Streamlight PT 1L Professional Tactical Light

Streamlight PT 1L Professional Tactical Light

It occurred to me this morning that I need a very bright and compact tactical light. As my routine is, alarm goes off and the dog and I go outside. Barely awake, I shuffled to the back door with dog in-tow and to my surprise, it was opened. Not just unlocked, but open… not wide or anything, but open. So I went back to the bedroom, got my Bodyguard, and searched the house, with no flashlight. I keep a bad guy whacker next to the bed, but in this situation, I would not have been able to handle the flashlight, the gun, and open doors all at the same time. I told the guys this morning about what happened and CTD Ben highly recommended this Streamlight PT 1L professional tactical light. It has a bright 110 lumens and an excellent run time of one hour and 45 minutes on high. It is super compact, too, so I can throw it in my pocket, purse, or keep it with my gun, which is what I plan to do.

Oh. And the door issue. Not to worry. I chalked it up to user-error. I’m pretty sure I failed to lock it properly with my last trip out last night. No Bogeymen inside the morning. Thank God. Lesson learned.

New Zombie Targets

New Zombie Targets

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any zombie-related products and the Mossberg 500 JIC reminded me of that fact, so I found these new zombie targets from Champion. These are fun because you actually have to have your shot placement right. Because there are good guys in the targets. This is a multi-pack of three different designs so you won’t get bored. (Like you’d get bored shooting zombies.) You get a total of six targets. The Champion zombie targets feature VisiColor technology that reveals a bright green color when you shoot the zombie in the head, yellow when you hit the zombie’s body, and white when you hit the good guy. They measure 18-inch by 12-inch. Like it? Want it? Buy it! Item: 2-OUT46050 [suzanne]
