Primary: Stag Arms AR in 5.56
Sidearm: Beretta 92FS (with 4 15 rounders loaded on a Tac Vest)
Melee: Mossberg 590 (F U)
Based on whatever?
Primary: maybe my Stag (it kicks a**) or the DPMS 308 that I'm building
Sidearm: Sig P226 in 357 (greatest handgun round, just not as available as 9mm) (BTW, I own that too)
Melee: 18in Kukri blade (like a machete, but the design allows for better head REMOVAL)
AR-15 bertta 92fs hatchet... reason the AR-15 fires a 5.56 tumbler round and the 92 fires a 9mm parabelum witch are both standard mil spec witch means they would be the easyest to procure every time you came aross a walker that use to be a solder still carring his ruck or and over run chekpoint
My three for me (in a group setting where everyone has a separate job) would be:
A Mosin Nagant 91/30 or M44, cant really decide which one i like better. Would prefer a Lee Enfield over the nugget, but the nugget is cheaper to obtain, easier to clean, and a larger/cheaper abundance of ammo than the Enfield.
A Glock 17, 9mm rounds very abundant.
And a Ka-Bar or similar.
The Mosin may be loud, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. From the distance i would be using it from, i could be away from the group and use it as a distraction technique as well as killing the zeds. And homemade dampeners or suppressors only take a bit of trial and error, and that gives you something to do to pass the time as well.
I'm planning on getting one real soon, mainly for the historical context and the pretty sweet price. I will be modding a little, but im not planning on swapping into a synthetic body or anything major like that. The only real downside is having to use a pistol scope, or pay out the crapper for a nice scope that has long eye relief, max i can find is a 3-9x40 pistol, which is good but i want something that has more magnification as well.
