There are reasons you don't see alot of this stuff. Common weapons, such as bolt action rifles, old war (WWII) guns, and such are ancient and need to be reloaded after most shots, or only have room for 4-6 rounds. I'd prefer an M16 with a 30 round magazine, capable of penetrating most anything that isn't armor plated.
Military personel aren't killers in the sense that you would make them out to be. They are not taught to shoot first and ask questions later. They abide (Usually) by a strict set of rules of Engagement. Things such as don't shoot unless shot at first. Warnings before physical action. They would never execute a survivor, just because, or just incase.
Also, RE wasn't butchered because of the action, it was because of the poor storyline the writers decided to use. The videogames are usually nothing but action. and they all have super human monsters in them, ALL OF THEM.
On a better note, you're right about the kid thing. It's pretty much like the handicapped arguement. It may be seriously offensive and over the top. But how do you identify the age of a zombie?
Hospitals aren't usually the epicenter of the outbreak because the labs are usually top secret underground facilities. When was the last time you saw an underground hospital?
And when was the last time you saw guns in a pawn shop, let alone ammo for that gun?
i don't have an m16...and i'm betting the majority wouldn't have one either. in a pinch a flint lock puts a hole in zombie flesh.
hospitals are a natural outbreak location once the virus or whatever reaches civilian populations, same with churches and airports
ammo, no...guns oh hell yeah. at least around here every pawn shop is a "gun & pawn" rednecks <3 firepower
And i guess you could theorize that the young, old, handicapped, etc. possibly would be devoured by the zombies more than just infected. Even though zombies are slow and weak i suppose that it would take at least some minimum of strength and agility to be bitten but escape enough to turn into a zombie??? but that's a long shot...some would always defy the odds and escape injured but not dead yet.
No, your right, M16s are not your common weapons, except for military folks...or maybe military retirees. But I still would rather have a 9mm than an old rifle. It takes too much time and effort to reload any gun, let alone if you have to do it every ten seconds.
But I really haven't seen a pawn shop with guns except on TV. I've lived on the west coast, and Europe, plus Dayton, but I've never seen a pawn show with more than your usual junk...
And a final note, the old and handicapped would be a tough one to save, but children are small and versitile. I would imagine that they would be terrifyingly quick. RE2 is the only movie that I've seen with Zombie children.
where i live in the great state of Kentucky you can find firearms in pawn shops around the state, from small ones to bigger shops and most people dont own m16s but there are plenty of semi auto ar 15s out there i myself have 3 a colt a bushmaster and a knight industries . Also older weapons would be good for snipers as 9mm doesnt have the range of say a 3006 springfield or 303 lee enfield rifle
not all pawn shops carry guns but the majority of them do, and there are in florida gun pawn shops with nothing but guns, and a few in daytona beach, also come with a shooting range to pratice in, glocks for rent in the shooting range and all the ammo you can buy.
good calls...considering looting the pawn shop was first on my personal "to do" list too, it is interesting that you rarely see people raiding for weapons. They did in the Dawn of the Deads (original and remake) but they did have an inordinate amount of firepower before setting foot in the gun shops. I got plenty of blades and a sawed-off...but acquiring more firepower is priority 1 yet rarely seen in movies.
Of course, to wash down the bicep delicacy it's just eaten! Seriously, zombies who have just recently died, may expel waste, but you wouldn't see it. The waste would go down the back of their pants. It natural that when the body dies the colon relaxes and releases.
But the stairs thing would technically be possible, and they do, it's just never show. Have you never see zombies in the upstairs rooms? Do you just assume they've always been there? About the only thing I don't see them climbing is walls and ladders. That would take too much coordination.
Well I doubt they need to drink water since they are dead already. But one of my favorite scenes is at the beginning of Re-animator a zombie bust into a house and kills this girl in the kitchen and grabs a milk carton and starts chugging it, but he doesn't have a bottom jaw and his tongue is just flapping all over the place, its greatness is beyond words.
No offense.....dumb question. Honestly, cold weather would slow zombies down, possibly freeze them since they are dead, no blood is curculating so they basically become cold blooded beasts. But the dumb part is the second question asked...what else dont you see zombies doing........ I dont see zombies playing chess, sweeping floors, making McNuggets at McDonalds, driving greyhound buses, traveling in space, performing heart surgery, recording and producing films, selling avon door to door, playing music, having a picnic with their sweetheart at the park, going to church, holding a job, buying and doing drugs, delivering my pizza on time, bartering for goods at the flea market, fishing at the local lake, asking if I need help when I go to the store, in the crown at my shows, at the bar saturday nights looking for something to take home and "eat".....how bout I answer this question in one
answer....Nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They dont do nothing HUMANS DO!!!!!!!!! They kill and eat fresh flesh, infect those they bite, and are the biggest nuisance to human beings and their survival.
"you never see baby zombies and rarly ever see little kid Zs"
- Watch Dawn of the Dead remake....itll kill two birds with one stone for you!
- Again, watch Dawn of the Dead remix...first zombie they see outside is a one armed asian zombie (true amputee)
"really hot zombies that despite the rotting flesh you`d still do it lmao :)"
Again - big tittied zombie in dawn....and id still hit that russian zombie chick....wasnt there a hot ass zombie chick in Fido....or has no one seen it?
didnt read the rest of the pages but thats whats up.....Some one said something about zombies running and they would rather have the slow walking dead after them. They will run still when they are fresh....muscles havnt stiffened all the way...the more they rot, the more their muscles turn to shit.
