How The Zombies Ate Your Guns in 2013

Monday, December 31st, 2012

There once was a powerful zombie queen named Dianne. Dianne doesn’t seem like such a terrifying name and that’s probably why she went unnoticed as a zombie for so long. Don’t get me wrong. All of the signs that she was undead were there; the lifeless eyes, the gaunt white skin stretched taught over sharp cheekbones, the ridiculous bouffant wigs used to hide her balding pate and the lispy voice that turned the “s” at the end of a word into a “z”, like in “gunz” and “brainz”. All classic signs, and yet, we missed them all.

She had fooled her people for decades despite looking like the living dead when she ascended to her position, and yet not aging the entire time. Of course, the people she ruled were more concerned with good times and hand outs than protecting themselves.

Queen of the Damned Dianne knew that her kind would never take over so long as the living were armed. So for years and years she plotted and schemed. The path for her unholy horde was clear. Disarm the living and they would feast on brainz for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But how?

Finally, a tragedy struck and, relying on sentimentality, undead Dianne used her power to ramrod new laws through that would disarm the living. In a sense of guilt, the living were disarmed. Those who opposed this were labeled as kooks and crazies and led off as criminals.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a fairy tale with a happy ending. The zombies are at the door. First, they will eat your gunz and then they will come for your brainz. Stop Zombie Queen Dianne’s evil gun grabbing agenda and expose her for what she is. Unchecked, she will suck the life out of you, your family, and your neighbors.

We don’t often publish fiction on SSD but I didn’t think this one could wait until Halloween.

Finally, something we can all sink our teeth into. This Trail Bar recipe comes from Hill People Gear. These folks don’t just create awesome backcountry living systems but they live the lifestyle that spawns their gear. Here’s the recipe:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In one bowl, thoroughly mix the following ingredients:
2 cups of oats
1 cup of dried fruit (craisins, for example)
1 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
2 scoops of whey protein powder

In a second bowl, thoroughly mix the following ingredients:
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of peanut butter
2 eggs

Thoroughly mix the contents of the two bowls together

Grease an 8×8 baking pan and press the mixture into the pan

Let sit 10 minutes

Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes

Let cool and cut into squares or rectangles or whatever suits your fancy

They’ll keep for at least a couple of weeks, and will do their job keeping you on the trail.

They’ve got lots of other free resources on their site. Be sure to visit them.

Mike Pannone – Rio Salado Stage 2 “Last Blast” 2012 Rifle Match

Monday, December 31st, 2012

Mike describes what you are watching-

I came out of box A before shooting the steel and had to back up and came off the second to last steel before I broke the shot and had to re-address it but other than that I was happy with the run. That BCM lightweight 16″ mid-length with FSC556, A5 buffer and Geissele S3GE is an awesome speed gun. It’s just downright fast. Almost zero recoil and shot-to-shot and tgt-to-tgt splits are phenomenal.
