If you think about it, there is not much acess to highly powerful weapons such as m16 and like a desert eagle. What would be some good house items to use?!?! I would think my lawn mower would work well if i modified it somehow.
In a pinch one of the various garden tools from my shed would do pretty good against a zombie skull. And to forgotten Freshness, mossberg isnt a type of shotgun, its just a brand. Any shotgun with a modified or full choke would be good for zombie slaying, to much of a spread would be like throwing bbs and is basically pointless. And slugs are high in recoil and arent stocked as often as buckshot and birdshot.
I think the simplest kinda weapon that nearly anyone could get is merely a piece of wood. But you have to craft it right.
try to find a piece of wood about an inch thick at least. If possible, a fairly straight, sword like piece of wood...
Try shaving one edge down to make a sharp almost blade like quality..
And for best results, use a light fire, and singe the piece of wood, not enough to turn it to ash, but enough to burn it. This creates a chemical reaction that strengthens the wood, making it very hard...
And viola, your own wooden sword.... if you have to time and motive to make it.
nobody's mentioned a sledgehammer or crowbar. hmm was i gone when the zombie organization declared them bad ideas? im serious not insulting anyone. i think they're pretty good ideas. perhaps a little hammer too, for close range. Plus they have other non-zombie-killing purposes that might come in handy, like lifting heavy stuff, destroying staircases, or hammering nails (you never know ok? lol). And i do believe most everyone owns them. I think they're ok. Right?
