10 people are dumped in some remote area, no help, some basic safety gear, 10 items from a 40 item list, last as long as possible, last man standing gets half a million $. Can't get help, restricted to a 5 square mile area, max food allowed is 4 lbs. No guns, water filter, no xbow or compound or pellet guns. no steel traps, no rods or reels, only 25 hooks and 300 yds of line (monofilament only) no poison, no lures, no bug dope, no water filter, 2 qt limit on size of cookpot. The gear list for the first 4 seasons can be found on line. Season 5's list was never published, but it was a bit different. Fattest guy has always won, with a lot of luck.
If you had a similar situation, but could roam around, what gun or combo of one longarm and one handgun, would you pick? I'd take a sound-suppressed M4 in 223, with luminous iron sights, a 1x6 scope in a see-thru mount and a Ciener .22lr conversion unit (2 of the 10 rd box mags). 1 in 9" rifling twist, and 60 gr loads. A couple of 20 rd box mags for 223, Nosler Partition sp for the 223 and the Aquila subsonic for the .22 rimfire. About 200 rds of the .22lr ammo, 40 rds of 223. Total weight of it all, about 11 lbs. Mostly use the .22lr, of course, cause it's BB gun quiet thru the 7.5" long "can" for the 223. The 223 will take deer every bit as well as the 30-30 ever did, given decent placement of the bullet and reasonable angles of fire.
shotokan: The wife thinks i'm nuts for buying a case of pool noodles every other week. lol

shotokan: I'm willing to try anything. Don't get me wrong, pool noodles are fine but I am tired of cutting them honestly.

The Levin Lance: All jokes aside, I think you will like the beach mats better than the pool noodles at least.

shotokan: Nice. My hanwei raptor should be here by thursday... planning on slicing some pool noodles for fun.

Ouroboros: Days going well. Getting my table ready for some polishing.

shotokan: I'm not sure but the number of and size of the holes was just mind boggling.

The Levin Lance: Maybe with the shotgun situation it was birdshot?
Jan 24, 2022 18:15:57 GMT
shotokan: Oh yeh, typically if they come with rifle wounds it's from an ak47... we did have a lady come in several years ago with multiple point blank shotgun injuries. Still don't know how she survived.
Jan 24, 2022 17:59:08 GMT
The Levin Lance: Anything particularly nasty? Rifle rounds and such?
Jan 24, 2022 17:38:48 GMT
shotokan: lol not yet... tons of GSW's but no sword injuries.
Jan 24, 2022 17:35:34 GMT
The Levin Lance: Seen anything close to a sword wound in the ER?
Jan 24, 2022 17:20:50 GMT
shotokan: Good morning Ouroboros, how goes your day thus far?
