    Just no.

    The MP5 is a lousy zombie apocalypse weapon.

    For one, nobody likes those things anymore.

    Two, you've got to weigh ammo conservation, weight and the versatility of your weapon against it's potential killing power. For all it's counterstrike sexiness, the MP5 doesn't have a lot of stopping power - unless you don't mind burning 30 rounds ON A SINGLE FUCKING ZOMBIE! This would be a tragic waste.

    I'd stick with a shotgun, and I'd make sure to recover what shells I could. You can always re-load them with gravel if need be.

    If the zombie's far downrange, the zombie is someone else's problem.

    If there are many, many zombies, you'll want to skip the firearms and employ some sort of thermobaric - spray and pray SMG routines would result in disaster.

    I have already posted my zombie invasion plan.

    With zombies, it is important to destroy the motor centers of the brain, as damage to other parts of the body will not actually kill them. Shotguns are good for close range due the the ease of aiming, but smaller calibers are quite effective if employed accurately.

    Should Judgment Day occur, however, I would expect shotguns to be quite useless, at least with conventional ammunition. Armor penetration is key when engaging machines, which means rifles, rockets, and heavy machineguns, not to mention antitank mines for destroying tracked hunter-killer units. I can see .50BMG rifles with SLAP and Raufoss rounds being quite useful in this scenario.
    I'm not giving you my opinion, I'm telling you how it is.
    Can't decide which evil black rifle to buy? My thoughts.

    I have a tear running down my eye... *sniff* This thread is amazing.

    As I said, Benelli M4. If there's a horde, I have no need to pump between shots. That's especially handy if they're the running-type zombies. Should the AA-12 finally be released in a civilian model, I'll be upgrading to that. The glock 19 with hollowpoint would be good so long as I know I can pop off headshots, and of course my colt would be helpful against them if I find myself in need of knockdown power. My AR only needs to come out as a last resort if all of my other weapons run out of ammo.

    As for machines rising against us, I'll take a lesson from the terminator and keep my ass running! Hopefully uncle sam isn't trying to make C3P0.

    Deer slugs are far from exotic and provide very good penetration at close range

    added:
    My own zombie arsenal consists of a 30-30 lever action, pump shotgun and 9mm pistol. I want to get an M-14 but just can't justify the expense at this point.

    This has already been done so many times, but it's my favorite topic so i'll play. also, it's apocalypse. lol

    AK47. Big, common round. Ultra-reliable weapon. Sawed-off double barrel shotgun for close range zombie head disintegration. Sleep with a Ruger super redhawk alaskan 2" .45 in my hand. Carry some pipebombs and a zippo in case i get caught by a mob.

    I'd get a decent all terrain motorbike for transport (bmw dakar or ktm superduke), which would give me another good reason to wear a full face helmet, thick riding leathers, big ass boots and thick gloves.

    knife? sword? no. chainsaw.

    As a functioning relic...some 1911s are amusing and fun to play with. However...stick with a 9mm or 40SW. You could go the Glock 21 or HK USP route if you're a die-hard 45ACP fan...but meh....let's stick with modern calibers. :XXonlyamo

    I'm no expert Goon, but this looks like it would be a comforting piece of ironmongery to have to hand.

    Wow, I stand corrected. Thank You for the insight. However, they do have the .45 cal version?

    A good option: Gravity gun plus saw blade.




    hmmm... not sure why that didn't show up right.
