First Ranger Man brought you his I Am Legend movie review, then he described in detail the M4 carbine used in the movie, THEN he took you online shopping to build a clone of the M4, and NOW we shall examine the OTHER guns used in I Am Legend.
“FOUR posts on this movie, Ranger Man?” you ask.
Look, it’s not every day that a good SHTF movie rolls on the big screen, and those of you that have never maintained a blog that updates as frequently as SHTFblog have no idea how difficult it can sometimes be to rattle the dome for post ideas day after day after day after day. All I ever ask in return is that you notify your homies about this blog and post a link in forums and such.
What is that sweet piece sitting on Neville’s night stand? Why it’s a Beretta M9, of course, chambered with a 9mm round. It typically holds a 15 round magazine. The M9 could also be called the Beretta 92F, where the “M9” is the term used by the military, as this the primary handgun of the U.S. armed forces which replaced the M1911A1 back in the 1980’s (to the dismay of many).
Wooooah! Watch yourself there, Neville, or Anna will bust a cap in your ass with her Glock . . . . with her Glock . . . . yeah, with her Glock. It’s impossible to tell the particular model.
Same story here, Neville is reaching for a Smith and Wesson, but hard to tell which model. Based on the size of the frame I’d guess it’s chambered with a 9mm. Any thoughts?
Yowzer, handguns galore! How many are you packing, Neville? Looks like here we’ve got a Heckler and Koch Mk 23 with olive drab handles, chambered in the mighty .45 ACP. That’ll put those vicious mutant attack dogs down . . . if you plug ’em a few times. This piece also goes by “SOCOM Pistol” because it was developed for the U.S. Special Operations Command as an “offensive” handgun, as opposed to the more typical design for defensive handguns. It holds 12 rounds in the magazine. These babies ain’t cheap!
Last, but certainly not least, this dude guarding the gate in Vermont knows his business. He’s standing guard with an M16A2. Chambered with the Black Hills 77 grain cartridge and a 1:7 barrel twist, this thing will drop zombies at far distances with ease. He just needs to slap a tactical sling on it, then he’d really be stylin’. Check my “AR-15” category for more posts and information on this subject.

That wraps up this post. Go and git-r-done!
