Is "Apocalypse" a valid reason for purchasing a firearm?
I have recently increased my regular dosage of zombie apocalypse daydreams due to some recent outside forces. One of the biggest being Stephen King's Cell which I am half-way through. While fantasizing about living in a post zombie society I started to wonder about the validity of purchasing a shotgun incase the hopefully inevitable happens and I am aloud to "defend" myself against hordes of the undead.
Make no mistake, this is the only reason I wish to own this weapon. I love to skeet shoot but where I go to shoot they already have guns. I have no urge to hunt any of nature's creatures. I don't even feel the need to own one to defend my home and loved ones from burglars or trespassers. That's what "stealth mode" and putting points into backstab are for. I just simply think the humor of it added to my life would both satisfy and amuse me to no end.
Again, no children in the house, wouldn't keep it loaded, might not even keep shells for it, but just have it. Maybe with "The End is Nigh" carved into the stock. I most likely will not buy one, because I really have absolutely no need for a shotgun, but, the urge is there. To have one. For the zombies...or, or aliens. I will tell you this; I DO own a shake-up flashlight, crank powered radio, compass, hunting knife, and am going to pick up a road atlas tonight. These items can be helpful in any dire situation but in the back of my head I know why I pick them up. Z-Day.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has ever had a bizarre urge like this and if they've ever acted on it.
