The Morrow ProjectI follow the discussions on the Morrow Project Yahoo! group with interest, there are some very knowledgeable people on that list.  The discussions can be fascinating, ranging from where would be the best place to hole up after a disaster, to the survivability of malls being assaulted by zombies.  One of the most regular long term and deeply heartfelt topics on the list, however, is with regards to outfitting Morrow Project team members.  What type of sidearms, what long arms, what anti-tank weapons, what all terrain vehicles, what kind of armour and air support…as I say, it’s a regular discussion topic.
