Uh oh

Experts Warn of ‘Terminator’-Style Military-Robot Rebellion. Between that, zombies, face-eating monkeys, global warming and other mythological bogeymen, I wonder what kinda ammo I should stock up on?

    I am thinking .50BMG, this means that everyone in Kalifornia is sooooo screwed…

    Lotsa FMJ – gotta go through all that armor.

  3. _Jon Says:

    It depends upon which you think you will face – low numbers of heavily armored opponents or high numbers of lightly armored attackers.

    If it is the former, big for single shot kill.
    If it is the latter, small for spray and cover.
    — Don’t forget you’ll need a lot of magazines – no time to reload.

    You should have put quotes around “expert” too…

    In any case, anything that has a core other than lead should do against most mechanized critters. Fat chance for most people, eh?

    Explosive ammo.

    What do i win?

  6. CSFreestyle Says:

    I think the correct answer is “all of it.”

  7. JKB Says:

    A 5 kilojoule pulse rifle. It is near impossible to stop a Terminator with our primitive weapons. But should you try, you must be near a metal stamping plant or foundry.

    Sounds like a new Terminator movie is coming out… oh look, there is!

    Imaginary boolets to deal with the imaginary problem.

    Oh, all right, if we’re going to take this crap seriously: consensus among my erstwhile Readers was a .45-70 Govt or shitgun slug for close-up work, and a .308 (minimum) for something further out. (For those who still feel paranoid, nothing says “Quit Working!” like a .50 BMG.)

    It all came about during an academic exercise I posted called: “What’s the best cartridge to neutralize a traffic/surveillance camera?”

    Purely academic exercise, I stress.

  12. Kim du Toit Says:

    Shotgun, although what I posted would probably work as well if the lens was hit.

  13. Tom Says:

    OK, of “mythological bogeymen” which one is the government developing like crazy? Which one is subject to hijacking, computer virus altering code, and abuse by the video game generation?

    Yep. Paranoia. How many years have they been doing this overseas, yet we need to “train” here? Message received.

  14. Chas Says:

    I can’t give you any specific caliber recommendations, but you might want to consider something large enough to allow for fuzed projectiles.

  15. Myles Says:

    If Terminator 3 was any indicator the first generation flying things can be taken out with an AK-47. So, 7.62 commie is a “must have”.

  16. Tom Says:

    Being that “The Matrix” is a pretty close facsimile to this scenario, I think there is only one option…

    Morpheus: “How we doing Tank?”
    [Tank types on the keyboard and the main power goes off]
    Tank: “Main power offline. EMP armed…”
    [Tank opens the cover to the EMP switch]
    Tank: “and ready.”
    Neo: “EMP?”
    Trinity: “Electro-Magnetic Pulse, disables any electrical system within the blast radius, only weapon we have against the machines.”
    Morpheus: “Quiet. “

  17. TCK Says:

    You’d think the big bad doom bots in the Matrix series would have figured out what a faraday cage was after the first dozen or so of them got whacked by simple a EMP…

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
