If you don't smell ozone, the radiation won't kill you before next week.

If it still works, it has the advantages inherent to low-tech - if it ain't worn out, it probably won't break, it won't take a rocket surgeon to operate it, and regardless of its original purpose it will still kill something the enemy's got. The 50 caliber rifles in use today aren't all that different from the anti-tank rifles that were considered obsolete in 1940.

they definitely still work. When I get back to one of our storage areas I'll throw up some more. The only weapons we've had issue with is actual ammo. All the explosives still work. We've got old ww2 Russian block tnt that still goes off and it's been sitting in ammocans for 40+ yrs in buried caches
