    good machete.

    BTW, this past friday I was in Hot Springs and went into a Booksamillion while the women were next door clothes shopping. I saw two "how to survive a zombie war" type books. One supposedly a "U.S. military survival guide" type book. Didn't buy one though.
    Also in the July/August American Handgunner, on page26, John Conner's GunCrank Diaries column, he discusses some new targets.
    Zombie Targets by Joe Quinlan.
    The only zombie movies I've seen were the "Resident Evil" series. I've never been into horror movies much. Life can be scary enough.

    Mcmurry, you'd like Dawn of the Dead. Not really horror, just action. I don't like horror much either.

    I'd take my XD9 always. 10+ mags and 1,000+rds of ammo.

    If I was holed up, say defending a mall, I'd have my Marlin 60 .22 which is scoped, has a few thousand rounds and I'm decent with at 100yds.
    I'd also have my SKS. Better round for longer ranges, faster reloads than the Marlin, and I have a few grand for that, with 500 on stripper clips.

    If I were mobile I'd have my Remington 870, which has 6+1 and a four round sidesaddle and I have a few hundred rounds of birdshot, buck and slugs, plus I reload.
    I'd also have my AK which I have a pile of 20, 30 and 40rd mags plus the few thousand rounds I have.

    Note to self: Get machete :)

    Ok, for this kind of "End of the World," I would have to go with.....
    Mossberg 835, 3 1/2 mag (lots of ammo)
    WW II Springfield scoped sniper .30-06 with hi-cap. (lots of ammo)
    Ruger #1 375 H&H Mag. for when they line up 10 deep. (lots of ammo)

    The Zombies haven't come yet and it's not the end of the world but it could sure make one think twice walking into our local WW.

    BTW, I forgot to mention that the meeting place is at my house. I don't think I would be able to fend off all the zombies AND all of the anti's coming up from the south, trying to get behind protection. I'm in North California. I will probably need backup ASAP and I may as well call for it now.

    There are a couple of forums dedicated to nothing but "Zombie Crazy Scenarios." It's still fun though. I much prefer the George Romero "Slow Zombie." I think thats the way it should be Now the 28 days later- Dawn of the Dead remake "Fast Zombies," we're much more screwed. Distance is more important there.

    Our other forum was- eowawki. For that- more realistic realm, I think the shotgun is important. With pure zombie- I change my arsenal:

    10/22 with mags and all the ammo I pick up. This is Zack weapon #1 plus small game acquisition.
    30/30 Marlin lever gun- deer & boar.
    Glock 19 for close encounters.

    Dont forget the crow bar, machete or "Lobo" trenching tool (if you find one.)

    For me:
    AR-15: Lots of ammo (~2k rounds) and a platform with which I am intimately familiar.
    M-1 Carbine: Damn thing weighs nothing; perfect for long hauls or quick response. If I could only bring one, it would be this.
    Glock 23: shoots every time

    Left behind:
    1911: heavier, smaller mag, and the wife will probably want it
    12 Gauge Winchester pump: too heavy (especially ammo), limited application
    12 Gauge double stockless: I'm not Mel Gibson
    20 Gauge single: great foraging gun, but too limited
    MAK-90: Tough call between that and the AR, but ammo and parts are less available.
    Revolver: too big, too slow
    Wife's AR-15: Not broken in, no rail covers (and I think she'll want it)

    I think it was in The Sportsman Guide I saw a machete built like a sword, gives you slightly longer reach. Also, from a article long ago in a survivalist magazine, you might consider guns in popular calibers-like 12 guage, .45, .22, 9mm, so that if you have to do any scrounging for ammo, since these are some of the more popular calibers, it might be easier to find extra. Just a thought.

    AK47 and the 5000 rounds I have for it
    Pistol Grip Moss maybe 100 rounds for that
    Glock 20 When my order shows up I will have 500 rounds for that.

    I don't have nearly enough ammo for any of my guns, but in that situation cabelas is only about 2 miles away
    I would take
    DPMS AR15
    Savage 308 (who hasn't had a zombie sniping fantasy?)
    and Chuck Norris

    ok ok my S&W Sigma .40 only because its the only other gun I own, for now.

    This is a good argument for interchangeable barrels on an auto. You could get 9mm, 40 and .357 SIG on one gun with a simple barrel change, or a barrel and mag change.

    With that pistol on one hip, and a .45 on the other, you're pretty well covered for handgun ammo. (Maybe a .357 snubbie as a bug)

    If I could only have one long gun, 12 gauge pump would do it.

    Lather, rinse, repeat?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
