  • You want something light, reliable, fairly accurate and easy to maintain. Possibly something you can machine your own parts for. But the most important considering for long term survival is availability and weight of ammo. Light ammo means more ammo. No ammo means you have an expensive club. .223 and .308 are all widely available in the US being popular sporting rounds. 7.62x39 for the SKS might be a bit harder to find, not sure about Europe. The SKS is also heavy weighing, in at 8lbs, and long making
    • Yeah, on one hand, the 7.62mmS is one of the most common rounds in the world. On the other, not so much here in the US, from what I can tell.

      The Yugo SKS is actually even a little heavier than the Russian or Chinese SKS, so it's a pain to carry when running from zombies. On the other hand, it's apparently indestructable, and at nine pounds it will make an awesome club when I run out of ammo.

      Masque actually said that the 92FS was "huge, heavy, and hard to maintain." If I get worried enough to get something beyond a pair of rifles, it'll be a shotgun of some sort yet to be determined and maybe a Colt 1911. I'll figure more out about then by then.

      Maybe part of this problem is that I've only gotten worried enough to want to make it through season one of Jericho. After season two airs, maybe I'll be looking for a much larger arsenal.
