Naahhhh, it's got to be a customised crossbow with laser sight and a mounted bayonet.
Silent, so it won't attract zombies from afar and it's got the benefit of a nice long sharp point for sticking through an undead bastards eye socket.
Downsides though, as with any firearm (especially in the UK) is ammo. In a world in turmoil, nearly every shell is spent, every cartridge unloaded in the panic, and every bolt or arrow blunted or lodged in a zombie or suicide victim.
A katana would be nice. Stays sharp for ages, it's fast and can cut through skulls quite well. Low maintenance, no reloads, fast, reliable and silent.
Personally i would attatch long razors/ blades to a pair of thick welding gloves for a claw like effect. then take a basaball bat and put a lot of nails in the top so it becomes a simple spiked mace. if you can find a crossbow then your very VERY lucky as crossbow bolts are re-usable, and if you attach a rope to one end of the bolt and then feed that rope into a simple spring of engine pullback motor (think of a grappel or when you let tape measure back into the holder) then once you have fired the bolt you can quicly recover it and maybe do more damage. home made weapons like these arent always reliable but theyre very easy to make with a little resourcefulness
Come on guys we all know that the lightsaber is no doubt the absolute best weapon for zombies. It's light, easy to use, and super easy to slice a head off. There's just one problem though. Friendly fire... grr
If I was on the MOVE, I would get one of those huge 'Highway Mowers' in my arsenal. Those things can move about 35 mph, no matter how fast that you think they're going when you whizz by! And they have large blades that stick out 12 feet on either side.
Look at one of those fuckas the next time you pass. Those blades are at chest or head level. Even if you can't get them cutting, they will crush and tear depending on the traveling speed. And they're adjustable!
2 guys, with the small arms below, in dune buggies, would clean up.
Weld the grating onto the cockpit of one of these, with a hatch cut through the top, and OOPS! Streets are clear!
Remember to have both index fingers 'clear' for trigger guard size at all times. Just like Aaron Millton in 1779! God Bless America!
Well hell, I think a semi-automatic carbine would get the job done correctly if you keep your cool and watch your surroundings. My SKS carbine would have to be a pretty effective weapon if I would say so myself, ammunition is plentiful and cheap, the SKS itself is a cheap but very rugged and reliable rifle, it's a piece of cake to disassemble and clean, spare parts are very easy to find, just stay away from alot of after market products, the SKS was not made for after market products.
Agreed. The SKS is a widely available Semi auto. It's rugged and the ammo is out there. You'd be surprised what kind of aftermarket the weapon has. Just about everything that is out there for the AK, AR FN/FAL and other "Assault" Type rifles is there for the SKS. Sportmansguide.com is a good place to start. Page 72 of the Cabela's 2009 Shooting Catalog has a few SKS aftermarket items at decent prices. This includes high Capacity magazines.Once you have that rail system you can do wonders with the rifle.
