YOu can do this without the loop, eg
x3<-rpois(50*100, rep(mu,each=100))
x3<-ifelse(runif(50*100)<0.01, 0, x3)
x3<-matrix(x3, ncol=50)

means<-apply(x3,2,mean)
vars<-apply(x3,2,var)
cbind(means,vars)

make.a.matrix<-function(...){
x3<-rpois(50*100, rep(mu,each=100))
x3<-ifelse(runif(50*100)<0.01, 0, x3)
x3<-matrix(x3, ncol=50)
cbind(apply(x3,2,mean), apply(x3,2, var))
}
many.matrices<-lapply(1:500, make.a.matrix)
gives a list of 500 matrices. This isn't quite the most efficient
solution, but it's not bad.
