What gun for the Zombie Apocalypse?
I am assembling my Zombie Survival Kit for the upcoming Zombie Post-Apocalyptical world.
What gun to get?
I figure all you need is a bullet in the brain so a smaller caliper, reliable hand gun, maybe? Glock OK for this?
Or do I go full out with a shotgun or assault rifle?
I think a .22 with hollow points would be the ticket, but I am not sure.

It all depends on where you live. If you live in a very populated area I would go for something like this:
If you live a little more rural, I would go with 450rider's suggestion.
hell, even if you live urban I would pack those too.

Something with a pretty good spread at close range. Also unlimited ammo, cause as far as i've seen (28 days, dawn of the dead) those fuckers just keep coming
05-09-2008, 12:18 PM #9
lots of them?
there is only one solution

my zombie throwdown arsenal would consist of a sig p229 in 9mm, dual Colt M1911's, Smith & Wesson SW99 in .40 for pistols
then for CQC weapons, you have the LWRC M6A2 PSD and an Iron Ridge Armory custom built Remington 870
then to pick 'em off from far out and if theyre using tanks and heli's and shit, you have an m24 which gets you .308 and .300 win mag, a CheyTac Intervention in .408, and an Accuracy Int'l AS-50 in .50BMGforget the world, give us the earth

I like the Glock 18. Full size 9mm and you can fire it underwater just in case you get pulled down by one of those fuckers trolling the river bed. I like hollow points so they spread on impact, more likely to hit brain matter. Of course you might want something a little bigger/heavier if the need arises to bludgeon their head to pulp, pistol-whipping style. Of course if you are a shit shot then you better go with a shotgun.

Great suggestions. I can shoot - but I'm kinda a gun JONG. I like the Glock 18 idea. Hollow points for sure. Do they make a silver bullet for that gun? It would be nice to have one gun for Zombies, vampires AND werwolves...
Best guns posted so far!!

Maybe you can get a silver tipped hollowpoint with garlic in it. That would be the ultimate.
And yes, Milla is tasty. Although I always like her as Lulu Dallas. Based on her resume I'm betting she probably has the best insight as to how to equip yourself for Zombie, etc, killing.

What is it with you guys? It just guns, guns, guns, shoot, shoot, shoot.
Have you ever thought about engaging the zombies in a constructive dialogue so you don't have to resort to killing them? Perhaps you could impose economic sanctions against the zombies and don't even think about shooting them until all diplomatic efforts have been exhausted.
Then, and only then, do I recommend the AR-15 (Double Star is my brand of choice). Doesn't really matter what .223 you load in it, the wound cavity is sure to be extensive.كافر

TeleHoar - do you post on a gun forum (which shall remain nameless so the ld's here don't go over there and fuck it up)? This exact discussion is going on over there right now.
Slow "Night of the Living Dead" zombies - AR-15 with a shitload of 30rd mags.
Fast "28 Days Later" zombies - Saiga 12 ga with a shitload of mags.
I wonder what Zombie Reagan's opinion on this matter is.

I think we need to have more discourse about why the zombies hate us?
Seriously, zombies tend to live in large clusters. If you fight one you have to fight them all, like Southies. I would want a GE XM214 similar to the one used by Jesse Ventura in "Predator." They are meant to be mounted on a helicopter but I figure in a post-apocalyptic world I would have lots of time for weight training and could manage the recoil just fine.
Since zombies have no cerebral cortex, their senses and reflexes are essentially zero. Therefore you wouldn't need a fast weapon but something that could mow down 10-50 zombies at once before a reload was necessary. The GE XM 214 is capable of 10,000 rpm.
Maybe a Desert Eagle for backup. That thing is made by some bad-ass Hebrews!

The key is going to be having enough ammo. Plenty of spare parts is a smart idea too.

AA12 Shotgun, 3-inch 12-gauge shells and FRAG-12 ammunition.

I keep an AR-15 in my zombie kit. You don't need big bullets; just lots of them.If you have a problem & think that someone else is going to solve it for you then you have two problems.

If it's a full-blown zombie outbreak, chances are you aren't going to be able to clean the gun regularly, so while I like the weight of the AR in terms of having to hoof it on foot, I think the reliability of the AK-47 would be a lot better. Maybe an AK-103 - that's a modernized AK that shoots .223/5.56 NATO, and has composite furniture to lighten it up - basically an AK/AR cross. .223 is a whole lot easier to find in the US than 7.62.
But basically, a .22 would be sufficient and probably the most reliable - it's all about headshots, not penetration power. Plus you could carry a whole shitload of ammo since it's so light, and not to mention how easy .22 is to find...so I'm thinking a Ruger 10/22?
Read World War Z, by the same author as the survival guide. While the guide is pretty tongue-in-cheek, this is a full-blown novel and it's pretty good actually.
Yeah, that's right, I like zombie movies and books. Kind of a guilty indulgence/pleasure.

yep, just read world war z. quite a good read and i whole hardedly second recommend it. i think what you ultimately need is something with the durability of the AK with the accuracy/speed of a rifle. that or a sword for close combat
