Out of bullets=flimsy bludgeon. Bullets weigh a lot. After Katrina, we learned the Road Warrior scenario lasts about 12 hours IRL, them you're walking. Also, gunshots signal zombie food for at least hundreds of yards, so you're gathering to your position with a firefight. El Kabong or chop a few while the others aren't looking, you can still sneak/shamble off.

And as I've stated before, if you've trained in any of the Japanese weapon sports, you'll have a decent set of armor for protection as well.

A small crowbar is a deadly bludgeon that has lots of applicability besides using it to crack heads, compared to a bat or bludgeon.
There is a smaller "one handed" version of a haligan tool.
Even saw one that had synthetic handle. Which would cut down on weight.
I'd post a pic, but I'm on an unfamiliar Mac right now, and can't figure it out.

I think a xenomorph apocalypse discussion would be a lot less played out than a zombie one.

I believe my weapon of choice would be a clan of "Predator" xeno-types.

Forgive me for not wading through the 40 pages. Has anyone mentioned Gool-Jitzu? I had the good fortune of interviewing the inventors of this martial art specifically designed for use against zombies. It includes recognition, rules of engagement, knowledge, and technique.
