During the Ammo Apocalypse of 2013, one needs to find alternative sources for ammo and magazines.

There are few sources more alternative than Sarasota’s Survive Anything, which offers solutions for hurricanes, floods, civil unrest as well as aliens and zombies.

It’s a fun store, and well stocked with 30-round magazines, hard to find ammo – .223, 9mm,  7.62×39 and .308 – and of course lashings of Zombie gear.

Owner Michael Crea, who also owns the nearby Z-Edge Tattoos, has somehow found a source for items some gun shops can’t keep in stock.

As of this week, there were 30-round Tapco AK mags and 40 round steel, and AR mags by Thermold and C Product Defense.

The ammo selection included TulAmmo, Brown Bear, Herter’s – which was probably made in the same plant – Federal, American Eagle and of course Hornady’s Zombie Max.

They also have Tannerite – a binary compound that explodes when hit by a bullet.

Prices were not bad – I’ve seen much higher – and certainly not anything close to the gouging going on elsewhere.

Crea and his merry band offer much more than just ammo and mags, which is why you should plan on spending some time at the shop.

The first aid gear is impressive – including Quik Clot – and well thought out.

He’s got an interesting selection of swords and a great selection of real work knives, including most major brands.

They have one of the hard-to-find Hibben IV forged kukri left in stock.

I wrote a story for the newspaper about the store last year, that has more information about their other items.
