    OK so let me say up front that I’m not a ” Prepper”. I don’t have a secret stash of food and candles and hundreds of gallons of diesel for my generator in my underground, secret cave. I’m just a boring old dude with a couple of expensive BB guns …… . Now don’t get me wrong !!!…. I KNOW the Zombie apocalypse is coming. , It’s a FACT !!! And I have watched dozens of Zombie movies so I’m not gonna get caught with my pants down .
    I know where an old RV is with a faulty electrical system I can steal with the keys in the sun visor , There’s a kid up the street with bad asthma I’ll need to stop and pick up ( but leave the inhaler ) I have no shortage of clumsy friends who will of course bump into a banjo or something right at the wrong moment . And I’ve got my eye on a sword and a really heavy sledge hammer for when the action gets up close and personal!!! .. I’ll wrap my arms in old phone books and duct tape ,I’ll put on fatigue pants and an old Rock concert T-shirt with a few rips in it . I may even get EXTRA sassy and locate a crossbow just for shits and giggles an grow a beard !!…… But a pellet gun ????????? …. Really !!?????? Nope I’ll just leave my BBGUNS at the house . I can’t imagine anything outside of a good cold glass of tea and a good dog that gives me more pleasure than my old pellets guns . …. But when the dead rise and walk among us , I think I’ll go with a shotgun or maybe even an AR15 . ….
    I’ve read a lot of threads , and spoke to folks who say they want a gun for when the worst happens.. I can’t help but believe if I shoot a Zombie with a pellet gun bad shits gonna happen. Not only will I look ridiculous, I’m almost positive the Undead recipient of my pellet will be highly pissed …. in all the movies Ive seen I’ve never seen anybody take out a day Walker with a Benjamin Nitro Piston !! …What’s y’all’s thoughts ?

    When the dead rise then comes the Judgement. Question then is are you ready because all choices are over at that time. ;)

    I had been a Hornady customer since I was a kid and my grandfather before me. When they came out mixing fantasy with guns I strongly objected
    and they said it was just a marketing tool that nobody really thought fantasy was reality. This is utter nonsense because more and more cannot easily differentiate
    between Fact and Fiction. I offer the recent elections as evidence and proof of my prior statement on reality vs fiction.

    I don’t think zombies have feelings or emotions so I don’t think they would care if they got shoot or not.

    Well, I’ve actually had talks with a zombie and he said, “No hard feelings, nothing personal. Just trying to make it another day.” It was a pretty civil conversation, much better than what’s happening with trumps supporters and protesters.

    I don’t worry about the zombies. But some of the living get my attention. Maybe that’s the reason I have a lifetime carry permit. It covers my PCPs also ;)

    Finally, a real world realistic question that applies to the wtshtf expert in me. Imagine just a few years after, when most have been defeated and included into the garrisons of the walking, and most if not all ammo has been used. It will be then that our humble pellet guns (or not so humble multi kdollar costing examples of dreamed and planned perfection) come into play…  No powder of any kind needed, no brass, just air and lead. A footpump will work fine, and pellets are easy to carry by the thousands. Quiet too.

    Zombies + Airguns = Best combination !

    For the longterm, make sure you have a pellet mold. And ofcourse, any smart and self respective airgunner will have a suitable stash of o-rings.

    ofcourse, just my 2 cts, but above was concluded after extensive study of enactment of realworld zombie scenarios.

    Hey Joe, I think you have to wait until they’ve been dead long enough to be mushy or have a .35 cal rifle.  Oh, and you might want a rifle tethered to a very large tank !!!

    Actually I’ve been waiting for an episode of the Walking Dead where our heroes raid a Walmart and with all the  bricks of .22’s they can carry and some liberated rifles they proceed to wipe out a tsunami load of walkers !!  :)

    I think the idea always was that the virus kept the brain stem alive and functioning somewhat. You would need to penetrate to the back of the skull, even with a eye socket shot that’s alot of meat to travel through. I don’t think it’s viable, but maybe a one of those high fpe Sam yangs, or air force Texans..

    All I’m saying is when the time comes we should all do what the guys in movies do . Find an Extra creepy building that has been obviously looted . Make sure there are a a lot of broken glass and stuff that’ll make noise on the floor , at least 2 exits that you won’t be aware of , and above ALL flickering lights. ….. Now as we tip-toe around looking up for some curious reason , and step on more noise makers than at a Dave and Buster’s . We need to lay down our BBguns and pick up a convenient pick axe , or a chain saw that will only start at the last second . …. This is not the time for a new Thomas precision rifle !!! We need usefull shit like gloves with the fingers cut out of them , Old Military Jackets with the sleeves cut off , and above all Black Dingo boots …..Oh and a bandana . … So set aside your childhood toys and pick up a prybar and a pump shotgun that never needs to be reloaded with a sawed off barrel and get to kicking some Zombie Ass !!!!

    I think I watched this show once ( part of it anyway ) and continue to be baffled by it’s popularity.

    And to think ….. the half dozen main actors in this miasma are now effectively independently wealthy.

Hahahahahahahahaha 
    Now I know this is a fantasy bricks of .22 ammo at a Walmart what a good story tell me another one.

    The good news is that the zombies would probably die of malnutrition aka lack of eating brains because once inside Walmart they would stand around endlessley looking for a WALMART EMPLOYEE TO POINT THEM in the right damn direction of sporting goods only to find much like in real life when you need help in a Walmart no employee is ever around,,, no offence to walmart but your……********             (FAKE MOD EDIT: Lots of Explitives removed…..

      The Bible says The Dead will rise and walk among us. Matthew 27:51-53: The Bible’s “Night of the Living Dead” Passage
    Doesn’t say they will attack us. Humans are your worst fear in a S/H/T/F scenario. Someone who hasn’t eaten in 3 days or needs food for their Children will be an EXTREME threat to anyone.
      That being said, my best advice is 3 guns in rifle and 1 in pistol and rifle.
    A. 12 gauge with different barrels for slugs, long range, and short inside tight work at close range. Everything from $25.00 100 round 7 1/2 2 3/4″ skeet shells which are deadly on Humans at 10 yards and under to slugs and 00 buck for out to 100 yards if need be.
    B. A Mini 14 or an AR with a Wylde chamber for .223 and 5.56 Most all altercations with multiple subjects where a semi auto is useful will be at 50 yards or less. A Mini 14 is plenty accurate.
    C. A .22 Long rifle, semi, bolt, and revolver and or semi hand gun. This is a scenario of SHTF. No one wants to even get wounded as there’s no medical care, electricity, penicillin, etc. A wound is going to kill you be it instantly, 30 seconds from a heart or lung shot with a .22LR, .22 shot, sub sonic, whatever. Even a pellet rifle (powerful quiet PCP, bow, knives would be useful for dispatching enemies quietly, effectively. You may not like it; but you’re going to have to feed yourself and Children also. Things are going to be put in an entire different perspective IF this scenario ever happens. .22LR is cheap, accurate, enough power to kill out to 200 yards reasonably with 38 to 50″ of drop depending on weight, BC, FPS. Remember, NO ONE even wants to get wounded as infection is a painful death, so much so that they will most likely off themselves rather than suffer.
    D. OK, yes, 9mm, 45ACP, all other common handgun rounds, all common hunting rifle rounds will be available and good to use. Point is you can at MOST have a handgun in each hand or fire 1 rifle at a time.
      If I HAD to pick ONE, it would be a .22LR semi auto that NEVER jams as it’s effective enough, quiet, and can carry more ammo. That’s my opinion.
    On Air Guns. Still useful for hunting and powerful PCP’s can quietly dispatch anything with a well placed shot.

    So long as I can wield a chainsaw from my sawed off zombie bitten stump, and cradle a hot chick in my other arm I’m good. You can be a supporting character in my story Joe ;)
