14 November 2012 - 03:20 AMI'm actually super exited. At 0:28 there is what appears to be a girl sitting on the hood of an old beat up 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88. This car, nicknamed, "The Classic" by Sam Raimi has been in every single one of his films and is the car that is owned and driven by Ash in both of the original Evil Dead films. Seeing that car all beat up in the trailer gives me a moto boner for this movie and hopefully there will be more cameo's/references to the original films in the remake.

18 September 2012 - 04:30 AMpersonally i think on the dead you couldnt go wrong with a good hollowpoint.
Really..........? Hollowpoint is designed to expand and tear body cavities and not really to enter a skull. FMJ has better penetration and will sometimes fragment after entering. The skull is harder to penetrate than you would think
hollow points have always got the job done for me
And you've shot how many people with hollow points? How about zombies?
18 September 2012 - 03:38 AMRecon patrols are my primariy concern. I would want to know what's going on and what I have at my disposal in the immediate area. Recon teams are typically smaller than a normal combat patrol, however even in a recon team they carry some good firepower(in the corps case they carry SAWs and other weapons similar to that). In case the undesirable happens. I agree that recon teams should understand maps, and they should roll light. In the case of my ideas, I'd have either a 2 or 4 man team so no one is going to roll alone if avoidable and still divide the group. I'd like to have at least one shotgun or rifle per pair, and other than that, pistols and melee weapons.
The marines ride you hard until your ass can actually carry that M249, ammo and the essentials without compromising your speed and endurance, and not make yourself obvious to anyone with ears though. Statistically, we're more liable than not to deal with people without that level of training and expertise.
Even then, I remember reading a few articles on army.mil and military.com that talked about the average infantryman in the U.S. armed forces being more than 10-20 pounds overburdened, SAW gunners and assistants being the worst offenders. I think that would definitely impair how fast you can move and how far you can go, even if you're in great shape. Lots of undesireable stuff happens, but really, if you need something like a light mg at any point against zombies, you probably have more zombies on you than you have ammo. And if you need it against raiders, you're in a real FUBAR situation.
Crazy idea here, but recon teams operating in suburban areas could probably put bikes to good use. Silent, easy to repair, no fuel and faster/less tiring than walking or running. Even if you lose it, it's probably easier to get another bike than a working car/motorcycle. When you say rifle, are you talking about an AR or something long range like a hunting rifle?
Lol..in my company (keep in mind its an Army Infantry company) our new guys or "joes" usually get the SAW. The idea is that they havn't suffered at all yet and therefore have to carry more weight than our riflemen regardless of experience with the weapon. The people who I've seen have to carry the shittiest amount of weight are the team leaders in my platoons' weapon squad. They carry the M-240L M192 tripod with the gun bag and extra barrel as well as the TA-50 for the weapon on top of at least 250 rounds of linked 7.62x51. Not to mention their kit, weapon and additional weight in their assault packs varying on the mission.
Honestly I think lugging around a 249 or a 240 for a patrol during the zpaw could deplete the energy of the people carrying it if they're not used to carrying the weapon and at least a little bit of ammo for it. The last thing a patrol needs is a fall out in the group. You're only as strong as your weakest link.
15 September 2012 - 02:48 PMI saw this movie with my then girlfriend when it came out. Loved every second of it. What the previews make you think the movie is and what it actually is, is my favorite aspect of the film.
