Signature Apocalypse Weapons Update #8

We are officially closed for entires now. I have several updates worth of entries waiting in the wings though, so expect 'em to come fast and furious over the next week. A huge thanks to all those who have entered!

 Remember, there are great prizes from Choate Machine & Tool, Vigilant Gear, Tom Bihn and Red Dirt Stock Works and us here at T-Blog up for grabs! Check out their websites and give them your support for helping make this contest possible!

From Iron Prepper:

For those occasions when mobility and firepower are an absolute must; this light combat loadout is expeditiously assembled and deployed. The addition of the gas mask and assault vest builds upon my already highly preparedness-oriented EDC. Whether the threat is Zombies, gangs of looters, or an invading army, having a modular system based on what one is already likely to be wearing dramatically increases one's survivability. We'll begin with the clothing, move on to the weaponry, and close with other EDC items which cannot be seen in this picture.

Clothing: Altama Exospeed combat boots, Tru-Spec 24/7 pants, Carhartt zip-front hooded sweatshirt. (Not pictured: Spec-Ops tactical suspenders, Bison Designs "Last Chance" belt.)

Mod Gear/Holsters/Accessories: UTG Tactical Assault Vest, Finnish Gas Mask, chosen because the filter's location on the left cheek permits unobstructed cheek-weld and sighting while shooting a rifle, (Not Pictured: Crossbreed Supertuck IWB holster in horsehide)

Weaponry: DPMS Panther Lite 16 carbine in 5.56mm, SOG Tigershark knife in belt sheath. (Not Pictured: Glock 22 full-size in .40 S&W in front-left-abdomen holster, Glock 36 sub-compact .45 Auto in Crossbreed Supertuck IWB holster).

Misc EDC (Not Pictured): Sog Visonary II folder, Leatherman Skeletool, 4Sevens Quark AA light, Zippo, Fisher Space pen, Moleskine notebook, black nitrile gloves, bandana, small bottle alcohol hand sanitizer, button compass, Leatherman Micra on keychain.

Thanks for reading and happy zombie hunting!

From TXPrepper:

My "Resistance Fighter / Zombie Survival" Rig:

Spike's Tactical Midlength AR.  Loaded out with Magpul MOE furniture and a Vltor Modstock. BAD Lever for speedy reloads.  Aimpoint PRO for fast CQB.  Vortex 3X Magnifier mounted in an Aimpoint Twistmount allows quick transition for head shots.  Slung with a Viking Tactics sling on QD mounts.  Fed a steady diet of Magpul Pmags.  Fairly Lightweight.  Rugged and Reliable.

Chest Rig made from assorted parts, mostly Spec-ops and 5.11.  Carries rifle mags, Blow out kit, and Cold Steel G.I. Tanto.  Rattle can camo.

Sig Tac-Ops 1911.  Mounted with Streamlight TLR1-s.  Carried on Chest Rig, or in a custom kydex holster.

Ball peen hammer.  For quiet disposal of sentries or lone walkers.

Cold Steel Kukri Machete.  Great for camp chores and brutal, messy melee.

Leatherman Supertool can fix almost anything.  Brass Knuckles for last ditch hand to hand.

From Raven:


My loadout is designed for scouting and hunting in rolling hills and old farmland, which is mostly the terrain around my home. The rifle gives me a long reach, for hunting or defense. The pistols are small and somewhat antiquated but reliable, and the revolver can be fitted with a suppressor if the need arises. It is all old school gear, mostly WWI weapons, but they work well in this corner of Texas.

Primary: Mosin-Nagant Rifle

Secondary: Nagant Revolver

Backup Gun: .32 Ruby Pistol

Melee Weapons: KaBar Knife and a Tomahawk

    2. Guys, hit Google before you start the hating. The Nagant is somewhat unique in that it CAN be suppressed.

      See YouTube.

    3. thanks Alexander, I thought that was common knowledge but I guessed wrong. But i love Russian weapons, and that is a gas sealed revolver, when you pull the trigger, the cylinder moves forward and seals the chamber, also the rounds have extra brass added to the end of them to complete the seal when fired.

    I've been itching to pick up a Mosin Nagant on the cheap, and posts like this push me near the edge.

    Btw Raven, is that knife a custom rehandle job in antler?

    1. Yeah, my grandfather snagged an old KaBar from someone and did a antler handle. Also, the Mosin-Nagant rifles are cheap to buy and shoot. They kick quite a bit, but are really accurate and fun to shoot.
