I am giving some though to casting silver bullets (silver alloy so as to get weight and hardness correct)... Anyone done it?? Would you buy such an item?? Thinking of doing the Gun Show circut on retirement and selling them.. 45, 9mm, 223, 308, ???

Don't know how many Werewolves are left or if Silver bullets will work on vampires (I'll sell wooden stakes for that) but we've all spent a bunch of money on all kinds of gadgetry, so why not be covered if Werewolves are a part of the SHTF scenario... I've spent $$$ on dumber gun things...
Edited cause I can kill one but not spell whereintheworldwolf

I'd be all over one silver bullet in .223, 9mm, and .45acp.

Silver cases (even if they're only silver colored), too? Or, brass with silver?

Anita Blake, Vampire Executioner, uses a 9mm Browning Hi-Power with silver-plated bullets.

Silver won't kill a vampire, but it can discourage them. It forces them to have to heal the wounds, almost human slow.

The older vampires, Master especially, can't even be counted on to be slowed down enough by silver bullets - unless of course, you are sawing them in half with an Uzi.

"You don't volunteer for slugfests with vampires. It shortens your life expectancy."

p.s. did i mention I own BOTH and Browning Hi-Power AND a Firestar?

I am pretty sure a good old fashion "Hollow Point" will take out a warewolf just fine.



But you could sell the crap out of them at the gun show.

Not at all. Lycanthropes have tremendous healing power. You'd have to do a massive amount of damage, with several bullets just to stop them. And they travel in packs. Werewolfs, wererats, wereleopards are all PACK animals, and will rarely be caught alone after the change.

So while you are shooting that one with your standard hollowpoints, and seriously annoying him, the one on your immediate left reaches for your throat . . . .

Ever since the Supreme Court granted the undead equal rights, it has been illegal to hunt vampires without a legal court order of execution. Used to be, that if a vamp was bothering one of your friends, you could just stake him, no questions asked. But now, even carrying an executioners tools without a permit is illegal.

As to your weapons, don’t get too complicated - or it could kill you. Use a 12-gage with silver buckshot and take the entire heart out. Or, take the head off with a sword. Edward, the one the vamps call “Death” has used a flamethrower and an UZI pistol. With vamps, what usually succeeds is excess. A wooden stake is actually dangerous, you have to get too close, unless you happen to catch one comatose in their coffin.

Here is a good weapon list for starters: www.timber-wolf.net/blake/page-weapons.html

We don't get very many vampires or werewolves around here. However a combination of high-tension lines and aging nuclear power plants have been causing the dead to rise from their graves.

They're not much of a problem, though. Just take your time and nail 'em in the head. I've put away my Bushie and have been toting my .30-30 around.

bigyeti,

trust me...........! this is an endeavor that will lead to utter frustration.....! i have tried to cast bullets from silver & man-o-man, ya gotta have everythyng so damn HOT, the silver cooled too fast when pouring into the mold, then heating the mold till it starts to discolor is the only way & then you get a bullet that has not filled the groves fully......, i never did get a good looking bullet............

Link Posted: 5/29/2002 6:25:59 AM EDT
Personally, I prefer the silver bullets with fulminated mercury or holy water in the hollow point. Of course, you have to be careful of the wax caps. And if you do find a "sleeper", injecting them with silver nitrate is loads of fun. And I don't care what the Supreme Court says about legal rights for the undead, Undead should be "laid to rest".

Ciao
Randy

I use their bullets in .357 mag and .45 long colt for my cowboy loads. They work great, allows for extra Velocity as well as cuts way back on lead fouling the barrel. Also it cuts back on the cost of reloading .45 LC, I buy them at $25 per 500.

Gotta be really carefull as those werewolfs are pretty tacticaly sound and can sneak up on your flank before you know it. Helps to have a good squad, but one other really good pistolero will suffice in a pinch.

How about wooden bullets? I think I have some Vampires around New Haven. They only come out at night and eat chicken and ribs. You can tell where they were from the bones.

You've got a problem with either animators, voodooo priests, bad seed teenagers, necrophiliacs, or satanists.

Quite more likely, some animator is being careless, criminally careless. Uncontrolled zombies give animators a bad name. Zombies with no bosses tend to eat people.
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 5:35:56 PM EDT
no joke... my old neighbor stockpiled a bunch of silver bullet .357 magnum because god told him to. Still have them to this day, but never shot any of them, esp. since I don't have a .357 mag. He was sent off to the loony bin, and my brother and I inherited his ammo stockpile.

But here's an even better (true) story. Another friend of mine made a significant amount of money reselling unspent "training" .223 rounds. They had wood cores, and he sold them as vampire killers... get it? Funny, but no joke!

But meet a vampire executioner and you may not like what you find. First, there are the scars. Scars on the body from the vamps and other monsters that got just a little too close. And scars deeper inside, because you can’t become a first rate killer of monsters without having all that death affect you.

Second, most successful executioners are animators. The dead respond to them, all the dead, and that includes vamps. Animators keep odd hours. And odder still are their friends. Which include, as a matter of business, some of the undead themselves. But most normals see animators as a just a little too cozy to the monsters, too familiar with the darkness, the zombies, and everything that goes wrong away from sunlight.

You might wish to meet a female executioner, but be prepared for the darkness also.

SGN had an add for Swedish rifle training ammo with wood tips, could I use that as a stake for Vampyres?
Link Posted: 5/30/2002 8:20:14 PM EDT
You guys have it all wrong. When I vampire hunt, I use nothing but incedary ammunition. Sure a stake to the heart or a beheading will do the trick, but are both too difficult if they are feeling frisky.
Fire on the other hand, damages vampires and causes them extreme pain. Thereby setting them up for the kill...

A flamethrower would be the way to go, but I don't have a real one yet. Just a Supersoaker loaded with charcol starter fluid with a candle lighter on the end for ignition is all I have. It works well enough , and is quieter than my Oly carbine.

Don't they have to be sterling silver and then be blessed by a priest?

And if they're blessed by a priest, will they still work on Protestant or Jewish werewolfs?
Link Posted: 5/31/2002 9:23:24 PM EDT
Sterling silver contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. It seems that the greater the silver content, the better the results.

Silver does not have to be blessed. Lycanthrophy is a disease like AIDS, and while it may seem like a curse, is not. The religion of the affected person has no bearing, and religious charms do not have an effect.
