Once again, Guns and Ammo has brought to the news stands one of the most important publications of its kind in the world. We all know what's coming and I for one want to be the first to get my hands on the state of the art weapons, ammunition, prepping information. The first issue of Zombie Nation gave us just enough to wet our whistles so to speak and this issue takes it even further.
The second issue of Zombie Nation hit the street about a week ago and I snatched up two of the ten copies on the rack before anyone else could get the drop on them because I don't want to be the only one left standing around while my neighbors are bugging out.
There are a couple things that caught my attention with the first one being a gorgeous Modern Sporting Rifle from Spike's Tactical in Apopka. Their SL 15 Zombie looks like it would lay down some precision lead while defending your homefront from the biters. Magpul equipment and a plethora of Spike's custom touches, make this zombie slayer a welcome addition to the gun safe. "Don't Forget To Double Tap" is milled into the upper unit rail system as a constant reminder of the need to put walkers down for the count. Spike's custom ST-T2 heavy buffer is machined from solid billet then filled with High Density Tungsten Powder (HDTP) to tame recoil for repeated accuracy. The features keep stacking up so my advice would be to get your hands on one before Z-Day arrives.
My second favorite new toy (if I could afford it) is the Standard Issue 1911A1 .45 cal rail gun from Iver Johnson. This zombie-themed pistol is so beautifully appointed with you guessed it, "ZOMBIES" that you may not want to carry it. Stunning is the only word I can find to describe the graphics on the slide and the zombie-green grips. A fully adjustable rear sight and a pickatinny rail-equiped frame ensure that you can mount a light, lazer, or keep it naked while still putting rounds where they count. Get yours before I get mine..... Or should I say before my wife gets hers?
There's way more to this mag than just things that go boom, including knives, blunt instruments, comm gear, rations, and even navigation equipment so you can find the only safe haven for miles. I especially appreciate the effort the writers went through to bring us some of the most up-to-date tactics with a zombie twist. These practices might be necessary in the event of any national or local emergency including; hurricanes, floods, fires, mass power outages, or even a Sharknado...... Well maybe not Sharknado, that would just be silly.
