Reviewing our posts from the last few weeks, we find that things have been a little heavy at the Posse.
So today we'd like to change things up a bit.
Pretty soon everyone will get hit.
The Posse would like to preempt this by changing the subject.
If you are being attacked by raving hordes of brain-thirsty zombies, what weapons would you use?
SInce many of our readers are Americans, they likely won't have to resort to improvised weaponry like that in 28 Days Later, nor do we recommend hoping the neighborhood pub happens to have a working rifle as in Shaun of the Dead.
Note that stopping power will be at a premium here. So will ammo supply, ease of use, and the possibily of fighting at extreme close quarters.
What are your choices?
We'd like to get this over to our fellow gun-bloggers and the Carnival of Cordite (it's our entry for this week) so spread the word.
Note: anyone suggesting 5.56mm or smaller calibres will be summarily ridiculed.
UPDATE: To clarify, these would be the "shambling, feel-no-pain" variety of zombies. They are, however, still living creatures and if you do enough damage, they fall down and can't get back up.
Blasting the head off is a good idea, so is limb removal, breaking the spine, etc.
Answers should include the specific type of firearm (i.e. Remington 870 12-gauge) rather than just "a shotgun."
