100 Word Zombie Tips #13 "How to TEMPORARILY Set a Broken Limb"

It's important to reestablish alignment of the extremity (arm or leg,) not just for bones, but to decrease the chance of a neurovascular injury from the break moving around.

  • First, find something stiff to support the break. This could be a board, a rifle; anything that will hold the break in as near a correct position as possible.
  • Next, teather your support to the injured limb tightly, but not so tightly that you cut off circulation. Make sure you tether above and below, but not directly on the break.
  • Finally, seek medical attention immediately from the closest source available.

100 Word Zombie Tips #12 "How to Properly Fire a Rifle at a Zombie's Head"

Long range is the best time to utilize firearms. Being able to take careful aim will eliminate ammo loss from “spray and pray.” Here are a few tips to make head-shots easier.

1) Keep the rifle against your shoulder, but don’t force it.

2) If possible, rest the forestock on something stationary; if not don’t make your grip too firm.

3) Align your front and rear sights carefully.

4) Inhale, then squeeze the trigger slowly at the end of your exhale. The weapon should surprise you when it fires.

5) Reload, if necessary.

6) Assess the situation and fire again.
