Operation Z

Operation Z is a comprehensive 12-part series and the ULTIMATE guide to surviving a zombie apocalypse. Operation Z Volume 1: Introduction to Handguns provides instruction on how to survive a zombie apocalypse, no matter your experience level. This project is unique and unlike anything that has been released before, due in part to our military background. The series is complex, realistic and informative, providing a unique blend of fiction and real life training instruction, taught by one of the most sought-after firearms instructors in the world. Volumes 1 follows Chris Costa, who is now a survivor of the Los Angeles Outbreak, as he goes to train a group of everyday citizens, teaching them the skills he learned to survive the zombie hordes and ruthless gangs. Available on Amazon.

Zombie Apocalypse Survival Gear: The Battle Mug!

The OPMOD Battle Mug is like no other mug you’ve seen! This massive mountain of a mug combines three Mil-Spec 1913 scope rails and a block of CNC-machined 6061 T6 billet aluminum with the capacity to hold a sizable 24 ounces of your favorite frothy beverage. The OPMOD Battle Mug is built to military specs – the rails are real military-specification rails, the handle is an actual AR-15 carry handle mounted to one of the rails, and the body is serious hard-core metal, machined out of a 13.5-pound solid block of aluminum. You can load up the OP-MOD Battle Mug just like you would your trusty AR – pile on a scope, a laser sight, holo sight, or any other tactical gear you want. With its Mil-Spec Type III anodized finish and a crenelated base, the OP MOD Battle Mug is just as good for fending off foes as kicking back with a beer – though we recommend the latter. Each one is custom-engraved with its own unique serial number and includes a removable AR15 carry handle. Last but not definitely least – the OPMOD Battle Mug is proudly made in the USA!

Zombie Apocalypse Weapons Pron: Meet the M26 12-Gauge M.A.S.S.

The lightweight M26 12-Gauge Modular Accessory Shotgun System (MASS) attaches to the M4 Carbine and zeroes to the host weapon. It is also designed to operate as a stand-alone system, and comes with a recoil-absorbing, collapsible buttstock. With a Picatinny rail on top, the receiver can be used to mount sighting equipment. The bolt handle (charging handle) is mountable on either side for ambidextrous handling.

After over a decade of development, and testing and tweaking, the U.S. Army is finally issuing the M26 12 Gauge Modular Accessory Shotgun Systems (MASS) to the troops. There are two versions of MASS. The one that attaches underneath the barrel of an assault rifle weighs 1.2 kg (2.7 pounds) and is 420mm (16.5 inches) long. The standalone version weighs 1.9 kg (4.25 pounds) and is 610mm (24 inches) long (with the stock collapsed). Both versions of the M26 have a five round magazine and are basically a 12 gauge shotgun that can be operated right or left handed. It fires solid shot for blasting open closed doors or lower velocity, non-lethal (most of the time) rubber slugs for dealing with hostile crowds.

Psychopath with a Zombie Complex.

Killing for a living after the Zombie Apocalypse is not going to be an easy thing for most civilized human beings. Not to say that if someone broke into my house and was going to hurt anyone currently in said residence then… well… Let’s just say that the next day all of you would wake up, pop open a browser window and see in the headlines one of those “Worlds Dumbest Criminal” headlines.

Man breaks into house of Zombie Apocalypse Aficionados, outcome bad for thief.

Anywhoo… The normal run-of-the-mill American citizen would be unable to deal with the situation. Zombies everywhere, everything you loved is gone, everyone you know is a walking corpse, only yesterday you watched as your entire family was torn to shreds in front of you and there was nothing you could do to save them, gangs of thugs terrorize your Survival Team and all hope will seem lost however the only thing left to do is to get to some zombie killing and start destroying what in shape would be human and quite possibly even friends and family in the most gory ways possible. Who do you know that would be able to cope with this situation? Let’s look at a real world scenario and then expand that to the entire world.

You’re waiting in line at the bank and there are 5 people in front of you and 5 people behind you and there are 10 bank employees working throughout the bank. A man with a mask and a gun walks in and yells “Everyone get down on the ground!” firing shots into the air. Of those 20 people how many would spring into action, easily swarming the robber, disarming the thief and walking away a hero? Probably… none. I would assume that every person including yourself would get down on the floor immediately. This is the flight or fight response.

This is the body’s response to perceived threat or danger. During this reaction, certain hormones like adrenalin and cortisol are released, speeding the heart rate, slowing digestion, shunting blood flow to major muscle groups, and changing various other autonomic nervous functions, giving the body a burst of energy and strength. Originally named for its ability to enable us to physically fight or run away when faced with danger, it’s now activated in situations where neither response is appropriate,

Now take those 20 people, yourself, and even the armed bank robber and put say 40,000 zombies outside the doors of the bank. Fast, flesh eating zombies are attacking anyone outside and everyone in the bank has watched over a dozen people get run down in the parking lot, attacked, eaten and then watched as they got to their feet and began to run down, attack, and eat living people right in front of the huge glass windows that line the bank’s walls. You have no guns, except for the robber’s and your own. Who springs into action, easily locking down the bank, killing the 2 people inside that had been bitten and fall asleep that night a hero safe and sound in a very secure location? Probably no one.

What kind of person can? Well besides me and my Survival Team? Psychopaths. A Psychopath is a person afflicted with a personality disorder characterized by a tendency to commit antisocial and sometimes violent acts and a failure to feel guilt for such acts. Psychopaths are very flamboyant with how they deal with their disorder. Some famous psychopaths that you might know are Charles Manson, Richard Ramirez, Theodore Bundy and David Berkowitz. This is the guy you ave to have on our team, he is a cold blooded human-hunter with a free ticket to kill every one he sees without a pulse.

Am I wrong? Nope.

Recently I read this article on Rodney Alcala, the recently convicted sadistic serial killer called “The Dating Game Killer” because he was once a contestant on the TV series. A man with an IQ alleged to be that of a genius and who may be responsible for up to a minimum of 50 murders since his first known attack on a second grade girl in 1968. Not only a rapist and murderer, he liked to torture his victims, sometimes strangling and then resuscitating his victim, only to take them to the brink of death again before he finally tired of them and killed them. A true psychopath, he saw others as only objects for his entertainment, human playthings that he stalked, broke and then unceremoniously disposed of. One of the most frightening aspects of “The Dating Game Killer” is that they found a footlocker full of photographs of women, men, girls and boys. Most of whom have never been identified. You can go here to see some of the photos and notify authorities if you recognize anyone. Are these unknown victims? No one is sure but there are over 2000 photos. Alcala, now 66, has been behind bars since 1979, but many investigators continued to believe he was responsible for an untold number of unsolved, and perhaps undetected violent crimes.

Isn’t this who we need on our Zombie Apocalypse Survival Teams? Someone who can get up at the ass-crack of dawn, pull on his boots, grab his machete and head out for a day of hacking and slashing humans? Isn’t this who we all like to pretend we’ll be in the Z.A.? It sure is. I can site thousands of Facebook posts on my site page alone where we have debated how best to see zombies as objects for our entertainment, semi-human playthings that we would stalk, break and then unceremoniously dispose of.

Am I wrong? NOPE.

Who’s going to have the make-up to be a Zombie Apocalypse Survivor? Who is going to have the guts to wake up and de-animate their families, friends, co-workers and heros like Bill Freakin’ Murray? I would guess not many. Or maybe all of us have a little David Berkowitz, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, Rodney Alcala, Jeffery Dahmer and Richard Ramirez in us? Will the Zombie Apocalypse flip that kill-switch or will we find most people putting a gun in their mouth and pulling the trigger? I would again assume the latter. Are you ready? I’m not talking about supplies, I’m talking about mentally? If your answer is no then you are like 99.999% of the world. Killing for a living just isn’t in your cards.

Are you prepared for anything? Here’s some links you WILL need!

All of us here at Don’t Get Bit get a lot of shit from our friends, family and even strangers about the whole “Zombie Survival” schtick. The truth is that none of us here really believe that deceased humans will get up and walk around someday. We do however believe that if you take the Zombie out of Zombie Preparedness you are just left with Preparedness.

With all of the disasters that we have witnessed over the last few years from Japan to the hurricane a few weeks ago we see Survivors. Sometimes it’s just blind luck that get’s you through a disaster or terrorist attack, but what you do afterwards makes you a Survivor. In a recent post I highlighted the CDC’s attempt at a tongue in cheek look at preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse, but what they were actually trying to do was put a new package on their message of “Be Prepared”. The exact same message we preach here every day.

So take a few minutes and look around you. What would you do if one minute you were sitting on your couch and the next everything in every direction was wiped off the face of the Earth. What would you have ready to save your friends, neighbors and family? Take some time this week to check out the following links we are providing you and get your house prepared. For the cost of a single night out on the town you can be a Survivor of any disaster, be it Zombies or a terrorist attack. Stay vigilant my friends.

Mexico Mayan Region Launches Apocalypse Countdown

We here at Don’t Get Bit don’t discriminate between apocalypses. If you’re ready for the Zombie Apocalypse then you’re ready for anything! Only a year is left before Dec. 21, 2012, when some believe the Maya predicted the end of the world.

The Mayan civilization, which reached its height from 300 A.D. to 900 A.D., had a talent for astronomy. Its Long Count calendar begins in 3,114 B.C., marking time in roughly 394-year periods known as Baktuns. Thirteen was a significant, sacred number for the Mayas, and they wrote that the 13th Baktun ends on Dec. 21, 2012.

The doomsday theories stem from a pair of tablets discovered in the 1960s at the archaeological site of Tortuguero in the Gulf of Mexico state of Tabasco that describe the return of a Mayan god at the end of a 13th period.

Cities and towns in the Mayan region are starting the yearlong countdown on Wednesday. The city of Tapachula on the Guatemalan border will start an 8-foot (2.5-meter) digital clock in its main park to begin the countdown exactly a year before the date.

While some doomsday theorists may suggest putting together survival kits, people in southeastern Mexico, the heart of Maya territory, plan to throw a yearlong celebration. And to make a profit while they party.
