Topic: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

When hordes of the living dead begin to kill the living, you're not going to survive unless you have weapons. And plenty of them. So this time around I'm asking you about your weapons. What weapons will you be using to kill large amounts of zombies? Everyone needs to have three weapons. A main weapon, a side weapon and one just in case your first two fail you. So here's mine.

Main weapon : .223 caliber M4. Very accurate, light weight and the ammo is light weight. So you can carry lots of it. Also has a 30 round mag.

Side weapon: Glock 17 9MM. High capacity magazine. accurate and the ammo is light.

3rd weapon: Metal baseball bat. Much lighter and much more solid than your normal wooden bat. You can easily take down a zombie with a single shot to the head.


So far I will be heading into battle with my trusty Terminator and the three weapons above. So what will be your weapons of choice when everything goes to hell?

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

primary weapon - ACR [assault rifle] : highly accurate - effective up to 300m - 600rounds a minute

secondary - Shotgun SPAS-12 : ultimate close range head smasher

equipment - Machete - when you gots no ammo left - start hacking the shit out of skulls - endless ammo and a nice long reach - excellent for decapitating quickly

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

^^ Nice selection. I'm loving the shotgun choice.

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

only problem is - there are no guns in Australia - well, no legal weapons to own

I'd only have my machete and crazyness to keep me alive

but a shotgun would be sooooo good - make a huge mess

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

For main, AK
Secondary, some sort of small pistol that can have a large clip.
3rd, a big ol' trench club, one of the ones with some studs/spikes smile

And in all fairness, he is a weapon himself..........he'd be swatting away those zombies left, right and center wink

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

Well my list of weapons are weapons that I currently own and am profiecient with.

1. Sks, 10 round magazine, high rate of semi auto fire, good light round that I can hit a quarter with at 100 yards.  Carry around 300-500 rounds.  Lot of weight but nothing for me.

2.  Sawn off remington 870, 12 gauge, with 110 rounds packed in a backpack, 40 strapped to my chest.

3. Colt .357, stopping power lightweight and incredibly durable...make that invincible..... best .357 you will ever find.

4. I would also keep a .22 long rifle for hunting and last ditch defense.  light but incredibly effective in a survival situation.  hollow point ammo adds to its effectiveness.

5. 5" hunting knife one side smooth the other serrated, if you cant fight hand to hand at close quarters you are not gonna survive.  Make sure you have some flints and a knife sharpener because a dull blade will make it hard to cut a zombie...or humans head off......

I would add that it would be nice to add a 30-06 to this collection for long range sniper shots but may add too much weight. 

Calicos as someone mentioned above are great weapons.  I have only fired one in my life and it was awesome to drop 100 rounds through one of those.  Only problem is they are incredibly expensive and difficult to obtain especially in full auto.  They are very technologically advanced with a lot of moving parts so their tendancy to fail is great.  I put 300 rounds through a calico and the thing was so hot you would be burned if you tried to carry the thing in a sling. Cool and definetly an option but I would still go with a nice $400 SKS.  10 rounds may not seem like a lot but when you got long range and close range stopping power coupled with total reliability and ease of use it is unstoppable.  SKS any day ill kill me a hoard of 300 zombies without wasting a single round. all of this while dragging that sucker through blood and mud and going underwater, and she still fires true.

^^^ Good post, welcome to HM, Alex. cool

I just had the bow in the pic, not sure it's realistic depending on how I'm traveling. 

I like my AR15 for the long gun.  Great argument can be made for a shotgun, but like having a rifle for long range.  I'm fairly decent at 100 yards with it.  Haven't shot it farther yet.  Can be close quarters weapon as well.

Also have the Glock 9 and Beretta 40.

Coast to Coast AM had a Zombie talk last night.  They talked about how World Governments would respond to a Zombie Apocalypse.  Below is a summary.  Steven Yeun from Walking Dead was interviewed early in the show.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel Drezner, professor of international politics at Tufts University, joined Ian Punnett for a discussion on how humanity might respond to a worldwide zombie assault. Drezner makes three assumptions regarding the undead: 1) the only way to kill a zombie is by destroying its brain; 2) a zombie's only desire is to consume live human flesh; and 3) if a human is bitten by a zombie, he will eventually die and become one. Given the aforementioned threat and the likelihood it would quickly become a global problem, Drezner explained how various theories of international relations would deal with it.

The concept of anarchy (in this case, the absence of a world government) is a foundation for the school of thought known as realism, Drezner noted. For realists, national governments are supreme and must rely on their own capabilities when facing an external threat, he said. Realists are concerned about how much they can gain relative to other nations, and would be profoundly skeptical about a cooperative international war against zombies, Drezner added. He likened realists to the the characters presented in Night of the Living Dead, who, rather than working together, broke into factions and fought over scarce resources in order to expand their own spheres of influence.

Unlike realism, adherents of liberalism believe cooperation is possible, even in an anarchic world, Drezner revealed. Certain aspects of the liberal paradigm would aid in the spread of the living dead, but they would also be very active in trying to eradicate the undead, he explained. Liberals would likely form of a multi-lateral counter-zombie organization designed to regulate and combat the zombie menace, Drezner said. Neoconservatives, on the other hand, would be suspicious of such an international institution, he continued. They are apt to recognize that flesh eating ghouls represent an existential threat to humanity and would recommend an aggressive militarized response, Drezner said, adding that neoconservatives would also expand the fight to places 'friendly' with the undead, and as a result would undercut global unity.

According to Drezner, affluent democracies are better equipped to deal with an undead invasion than authoritarian states. Countries that have decentralized authority, quick local responses, lower population densities, and good healh infrastructures would be in the best position to survive a zombie apocalypse, he noted. The United States and Canada are well prepared for such a catastrophe, he said, though his personal preference is New Zealand.

Walking Dead's Steven Yeun
In the first half-hour, Steven Yeun briefly spoke about his decision to become an actor and his role as Glenn in AMC's TV series, The Walking Dead. The story chronicles the struggle of a group of people trying to survive in a world overrun by the undead. "It's not about how many zombies you can kill in a day... the real fear comes from what is the person next to you capable of that you didn't think he was before all of this happened," he said. Yeun hinted that next season the small band of survivors will find themselves on Hershel's Farm, where his character could find romance and a reason to live.

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

Give me a katana and a sawed off and I'm gonna be pretty much happy and on my way to Montana...

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

^  Why Montana?

Because of the low population density there. Assuming that we're playing by the rules that only humans actually reanimate into zombies, I'll take my chances in the southern Montana/Wyoming/South Dakota area. Alaska would be my first choice, but the trip from Minnesota to there would be less likely to succeed, and I  grew up in South Dakota so I'm already somewhat adapted to the climate in that area. I've thought about this one quite a bit smile

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

I've thought about this a bit too.  Actually, part of the reason I wanted to get my long gun was for a Zombie Apocalypse, though people think I'm crazy for that.

I've thought s lot more about weapons and where to wait initially.  Haven't thought to much about a place to try to relocate to.  We don't know how we will be travelin; Gas hard to get?   Roads impassable?  Will there be hordes all over making foot travel difficulty?  Your in Minnesota, I'm in Wisconsin, maybe when this thing kicks up....who knows, we might end up meeting and traveling together.  smile

My initial plan would be to take my guns and ammo, and find a safe place to wait things out.  Just get an idea what we're lookin at.  Sit and wait.  In the movies, frequently people are always in a hurry to get somewhere, even if where they are is ok for then.  After that...your Montana makes sense.

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

I can be at the gulf fully armed in under 2 hours where I'll be hijacking a boat  LOL

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

In all reality I probably wouldn't make it out of the city. I live in a third floor apartment in downtown Minneapolis. Unless I get some sort of advance warning (in which case I'm hauling ass) I'm gonna be stuck in the middle of the densest human population in my state...of course I could get lucky and every idiot who's seen the Dawn of the Dead remake and, based solely on that, considers themselves a zombie expert could decide to make a break for the Mall of America, thereby leaving me an opening to ditch town and meet up with any of you fine HM members that live in this part of the country.

Awesome Dead...May take you up on that!

Re: Zombie apocalypse preparation thread #2

Askani - You're in the Twin Cities...sweet.  Well, there are some advantages we have here.  We could cruise over (for you) and up (for me) to Northern Wisconsin.  Some dense woods up there.  Plenty of fish and animals.  Depending on the time of year, there may be a few people (you know, those Illinois people got nothin better to do than vacation in my State smile ).  We could hang around Little Bohemia where Dillinger and his crew hung out.  Either way, there would not be tons of people, sounds like we'd have some good weapons, we'd be self-sufficient for months or longer...plus, there's plenty of water.  For an escape we jump in a boat and cruise to the middle of a lake.  I think we got this bro.  Plus, traffic to northern Wisconsin should be pretty decent.  All you'd have to worry bout is getting out of the city.  Shit man...you're getting me psyched bout something!
