The prosecutor will shove that cute little box right up the jury's nose to convince them what petoot you are.

    Get serious, be serious, or don't carry.
    Take a deep breath and relax. Now take another one. And another one.

    Its just a question. Essentially it is defensive ammo and there is no real reason not to carry it.

    I am definitely going to get a box. The review on CTD says "now the zombies eat my neighbors, but not me". If that doesn't prove it right there then I dont know what its going to take for you people!

    Umm, no. Hornady has specifically stated that Zombie Max is target round.

    It can still be used in the same applications as Critical Defense.
    They use a flash reducer
    It will have more flash, that's it.
    Critical defense has a nickle coated case to aid in feeding
    Doesn't make a great deal of difference, really.
    Lastly they do ballistics testing on Critical Defense, where they do not on Zombie Max.
    There really is no need for them to do so, it's the same cartridge without the flash suppressant.

    As someone indicated, clothing penetration.

    I'm not into the zombie scene so I won't buy any. I would, however, buy some Mutant Ninja Turtle ammo. They wouldn't even have to change the color.

    I'm in Arizona, and I welcome you! Zombie Max is just a Hornady round with a green rubber tip instead of the pink/red tip they usually have. It is a pretty good round and I carried them when I had my LCP. However, the LCP is so unreliable, I decided to upgrade to the LCR and am using Federal Hydrashocks. I told the guy at the gun shop to give me something that "when the ambulance driver showed up would make him barf". He snickered and went straight for the Hydrashocks.

    Load whatever you want - if you get into trouble here in Arizona and need someone shot to save your life, I got your back.

    I can think of one reason not to carry it. If you use it in a defense situation, some lawyer can use it to make you look crazy. I was my defense ammo to say defense on it or something like that. That's just one less thing they could use against you. Same reason I don't want to put punisher grips on my defense gun. I would hate to be on the stand trying to explain those away.
