    This is just for fun.

    Ok, so the zombie apocalypse has happened. You need to bug out to a safe location. You have to walk. What weapons do you take with you, and why? Just enough to carry (so you cant take an M-60 and a .50 sniper, and a riot shotgun, no way you could carry all that plus ammo)

    Lets say they are typical slow dumb zombies.


    So far my list is:

    AR-15 with a nice 3x scope and a red dot: I suspect that .223 will be widely available, thats what Law Enforcement uses, as well as military. Plus it is pretty light.

    HK MP5 in 9mm: Light, good close in weapon. 9mm ammo is widely available

    Machete or Katana: (I probably spelled that wrong). You need something for close in, that is not gonna run out of ammo.

    Still on the fence about a shotgun. I like the idea of the firepower it brings, but ammo is pretty heavy, and I already have a pretty heavy load.

    I also think a semi-auto .22 would be a good choice. Nice and quiet, deadly accurate (if used close enough), plus you can kill small critters for food with it. That .223 is not gonna be useful for a rabbit or something. Big bonus here is you can carry a lot of ammo (like thousands of rounds) for not that much weight.

    Anyway, what do you guys think?

    Maybe a case of old records/vinyl... didn't they throw records at the zombies in Shaun of the Dead.

    Sorry couldn't resist.

    After seeing the Book of Eli, a nice sword is all one would need.

    impossible scenario. i know would be able to drive at least out of city limits, thats why i bought the car that i did.

    that being said, costco online has 30 day food supplies for $70, i will be getting 2-4 of those.anAR-15 in.223 with a .22 conversion kit would cover 2 guns (not as accurate in .22, but oh well, 1 less gun to carry) my glock .40, and my 12 ga. i also want a remington 700 in .308 so i can really reach out and touch someone. and a hatchet, one like mel gibson had in the patriot. oh, and a bunch of mini propane bottles taped to flares.

    keep in mind that due to the zombies decaying bodies, their limbs are easy to remove with a firm pull, you can use the zombies limbs against them if you run out of ammo.

    Zombies don't shoot, are pretty slow moving, and are not held together very well...

    And since I am a direct descendant of the great samurai, Keyamura Rokusuke,all I would need is my katana (my samurai soul).

    But I would also carry my Glock 35, locked and loaded, in case I come across any non-zombie BGs.

    WHOA WHOA WHOA! Pump your brakes!

    We first must establish something here. Are we talking about the Olympic-sprinter zombies from Dawn of the Dead (2004) and the rage-crazy Bloodlusters of 28 Days and Weeks later or the old man walkers of Night of the Living Dead?

    If we're talking high-class athelete zombies, then we'll need large caliber high capacity assault weapons and large capacity high caliber handguns. You've got to at least stop them. Getting headshots like the do in the movie on someone that is running so fast is not going to happen very often. Shotguns would be nice, but only in those tight spots where you may need to drop a couple at distance (such as 20 yards or so. Again, headshots will be hard and these suckers are still going to get up and come after you after being shot anywhere else, so you need to buy time to get to safe or fortified positions, or kill your self. To Hell with being munched on.

    For the slow movers, shotguns, and lots of ammunition. In general, you're not going to get so close to these clowns, you can run right around them. For the tight situations, you'll need a shot gun. Typically you'll be able to take your time. Handguns of any caliber capable of easily piercing the cranium and causing damage to the brain is ideal as well. If Kel-tec ever comes out with their 30-round 22 magnum PMR-30 with the 30-round magazine, I think that would be a fine piece of equipment to have if headshots if your only choice.

    If I remember correctly, the zombies from 28 Days and Weeks Later were capable of dying from the same trauma. So the same rules to killing people apply. Except they won't be afraid of your gun.

    Until you can no longer lift it from hacking and slashing, but good point.

    Bow and arrows were used in Diary of the Dead with some major effectiveness.

    The author of "The Zombie Survival Guild" highly advises against using fire as a weapon against zombies. Then you just end up having to fight flaming zombies!

    Did kommifornia pass a being chased by zombie exemption to unloaded only carry?

    This might surprise you, but even dumb mules will get a move on when chased
    by zombies. So pack em up. But I will carry the 50 for those long range hunts.
    I can use the smaller arms to retrieve more ammo at a later date.
    Nothing discourages poachers more than being picked off miles from their target.

    Just wish there was a way to make foo-gas keep for long term perimeter defense.

    I prefer the more politically correct term "zombiegeddon".

    Well, I guess you need something to eat.

    Okay, no transportation. Can I bring my folding cart? I'd stock it with some e-foodsdirect.com 7 day responders, ammo, 12g shotgun, AR-15. My wife & kid can sling their 22's. Machete is a good idea as well. On me I'd have a rapid deployment pack with ammo & mags in it.
    I'd be ready for the zombieland type zombies. Fun movie BTW.

    Someone gave me a HeaterMeal Plus (a consumer type of MRE). Well, I once, I figured, I've got other MRE's from military and red cross surplus, let me eat this thing. Well, it was quite good, lots of food packed in a not so huge box.

    Well, I finally went to their website: http://www.heatermeals.com/

    I realized that I ate the single most expensive meal that I have ever chowed down on..... ever...

    I looked at the website a 12 of heater ma\eals costs $52.68 - that breaks down to $4.39 per meal. You could do a lot worse at Burger King or Carl's Jr.
    What are the package dimentions? Would carrying a 12 pack slow you down enough for you to be zombie food?

    Stock up on Twinkies they have something like a 30 year shelf life. Just don't eat so many you get a tendency to shoot gays or politicians.:quirky Unless they are zombies.

    Yelo...aren't most politicians already zombies?

    *disclaimer: I am in no way advocating the shooting of politicians, it was a joke. I do, however, advocate voting most of the current crop of them out of office.

    Vote in zombies, if they act up we can always shoot them.

    Well, the meal I ate was from the $86 packs, but I just realized upon closer examination that they are 12 packs. So I retract my previous statement with a bit of humility thanks, guess I'll reconsider buying these, that was pretty tasty meal.

    Wow, I learned a lot in this thread...Costco 30-day meal pack and heatermeals. Has anyone tried the Costco meals? How do they taste? Looks like the heatermeals are much better (but more expensive).

    I would carry my Rem 700 in .308with all the rounds I could carry...I hate close quarter zombie combat. Gives me the heebie geebies. Then I would carry my 9mm, my Ontario Marine Raider Bowie, my CS 18" Bowie Machete, and hunting scent blocker. Oh, and can't forget my Oakley shades,canteen, leatherman, and tactical super bright light.

    Definitely consider military grade MRE's. I got several from the red cross that didn't want them anymore. They actually last a long long time (on the order of a decade or so). Some of these more commercial grade MRE's have a claim of one to three years, but that may only be for liability as I'm sure, if sealed properly and stored properly, they'll last as long a military grade stuff.

    I too would like a katana blade or something sweet like Eli was swinging in The Book of Eli movie (great flick by the way).

    There is one caveat there though that must be address. Are these zombies that are infectious? Do they have to bite you and thus make you a zombie? Or, like in 28 days later will just some bodily fluid in an open cut or liquid membrane(ie eyeball) be enough to make you a zombie? Swords are definately out for the latter kind of zombies but would be acceptable for a last resort weapon against biters. Slow moving Night of the Living Dead zombies had to actually kill you before you turned so for them a sword is a legit primary weapon.

    Now on to the question at hand from the OP.

    A couple of 1911.45's. Two to compensate for the low capacity but the 45 delivers enough trauma to stop zombies with a good head shot. .22's just don't seem to be able to get the job done.

    A Serbu Super Shorty shotgun. For when it gets up close and personal and you need a shotgun. Short barrel for lighter weight and more wieldy.

    As much as I would love to say Barret light 50 sniper rifle, if I don't have a vehicle i sure as hell aint gonna be hauling that beast around trying to outrun the undead. Maybe an M-4, laser sighted with a scope thrown in. That way if I need to reach out and touch someone from a distance I can and if i find myself foolishly in a tight space I still have a weapon I can use.

    As you can see the pattern is short barrels and high impact weapons. The ammo is gonna weigh you down but you're gonna lose less sweat with the weapons themselves.

    And yeah...a Katana sword too.

    As a side thing, more for the armageddon portion of zombiegeddon, a bow and arrow. Use that to hunt for food since you can usually retrieve and reuse your arrows. No need to waste what you may not be able to replace (bullets)
