I'm also sure many others will be using that, if not already in possession of one they'll have probably looted the store. However, I'm also sure that very few people would pick up the oversized BBs called .22s. I will give you that after a while, everything (or just about everything ) would be looted after a certain amount of time.
The 1 thing that you have to take in acount for also is that the .22 caliber is the cheapest round for price and quality, .22 cal is the most unreliable caliber you will find. but to be fair you can litterally fill a back pack with thousands of .22 rounds vs a couple hundred 9mm or bigger round.
There seems to be alot of poo-pooing here about weight, reliability, availability,etc., about what weapon an individual would use. I wonder how many of the poo-pooers have actually had to carry any weapon full time (such as being a soldier in a combat zone or even a police officer), or have ever been involved in actual hand to hand (leathal or non).
i belive in a balance of the two. older tech is great for certain situations but may be hard to reload and may have a low fire rate. however many of the oldies are goodies. the 357 magnum will blow holes in the recently reanimated corpses of the citizens in your home town. the sawed off 12 gauge is also a wave breaker. new tech like the P90 or a UMP 45 are deadly acurate up to 200 yards ending the zombies shambling dash before it can get to you. besides fire arms, there are the classics like clubs, bats, machettis and the occasional sword. bashing weapons are great but if you are alone they put you at a great disadvantage. the two best weapons to have on your side are a level head and large groups. i would fuck a zombie to death with my cock if the situation called for it. even though they are the walking dead doesnt mean they are indestructable. they are just as fragile as we are. you can dowse them in gasoline or hit them with a car.... or fuck them back to death!
You got that first part right, but the second only applies to males. Besides, I think he was talking about skull-fucking, like through the eye socket or something. Still, I think it'd probably be easier to just smash its skull in with your fist or foot or something.
The more moving parts there are, the more likely something will fail to operate. I see a lot of WW2 bolt action rifles and side arms and old double barrel shotguns on farms still in perfect working order having had no maintenance other than cleaning. Just wondering how many of the new high tech weapons will still be going after 50 or so years.
Technology and longevity rarely go hand in hand.
