Thread: Zombies out of the woodwork

  1. #1

    Default Zombies out of the woodwork

    It seems that over the last 10 years or so, there have been a spate of ZOMBIE related things.
    Movies, television shows, shooting targets, even a song or two.

    I don't know what the deal is. Except that, deep inside, we wish all our problems could be solved by shooting them.

    What I'm wondering is; what is your choice for a perfect set of weapons to kill zombies?

    Zombies and their cohorts have been around for years. Here is documentary proof.

    Everyone knows to take out a zombie, you have to damage the brain ... so I would use hot wax to drop them and make them roll around, then a turkey baster to suck the brain out the ears while they are distraced with being hot waxed .. never tried that before but Rosemary has threatened to hot wax me before and it scared me really bad, then she described the horrible uses for a turkey baster ..so the whole technique was developed in Texas.

    I never really got the whole zombie thing. The closest I have come to enjoying any zombie entertainment is one of my favorite movies "Shaun of the Dead". Freakin hilarious if you like British humor. Probably annoying if you don't.

    As for defending myself from zombies, my first choice would be a 12gauge. Maybe two...

    +1 for the shotgun. Except for all the splatter of zombie juice. I would want to stay farther away. So I would probably go with my AR-15. Longer distance between the two means less chance of becoming infected yourself.

    I never thought about hot wax and a turkey baster.

    That sounds like party night in the dorm...

    You guys are crazy. :) I know the horror of hot wax and would never subject some poor, unsuspecting zombie to that. For zombies, I much prefer Decline's idea. Hmm...think the hot wax will be reserved for Bebo's head the next time we meet to shoot. Can't have a scruffy bald head! (I'll save the turkey baster for Thanksgiving, thank you). You guys are still crazy......but wouldn't have you any other way. :) rkb

    I think a flame thrower would be fun. Wouldn't kill the zombies, but they'd look funny running around all on fire and stuff. woo-hoo!!

    Yep, I'm with Decline on this one. Hornady has a round for every contingency. Zombie Max will git 'er done. Here is their disclaimer:

    Disclaimer: Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition is NOT a toy (IT IS LIVE AMMUNITION), but is intended only to be used on…ZOMBIES, also known as the living dead, undead, etc. No human being, plant, animal, vegetable or mineral should ever be shot with Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition. Again, we repeat, Hornady® Zombie Max™ ammunition is for use on ZOMBIES ONLY, and that's not a nickname, phrase or cute way of referring to anybody, place or thing. When we say Zombies, we mean…ZOMBIES!
