I would refer back to the AA12 with armor piercing rounds....or really any hi power rifle....say 308 or 306 with full metal jackets....

Check .30 Cal and .306 been packing a punch for a long time...worth watching it all

Look at Tremmors, where the gun nut, had all the guns in the world, and couldnt shoot the buggers coz they were under ground and nothing he had penetrated the ground.

He resorted to IED's to blow them up and an elephant gun.

All you need are some nice API (armor piercing incendiary) rounds!

well, since everybody has guns, but me, this is how i really roll,

Full Woodland cammo, cammo cargos, top, ninja open face style balaclava, also in woodlands, Non slip ultra thin woodland gloves.

Woodlands load bearing vest loaded with molle pockets with random survival bits, camel back pouch with 3l of water too.
on the chest,
6 Bo Throwing Knives basically a spike.
1 Double Ended Throwign Knife.
Glock Combat Knife, mostly for butchering.

Left Side, Ninjato Hand forged long aka a strait blade Sword
Ninjato Style Strait tanto, a strait knife

i have a selection of swords i choose, i do often have my katana machettess, as they are durable for hacking through shrub.

Right Side, Pair of 9 inch octaganal sci's, i find these a bit heavy though so often dont take them,

Back, Quiver of Alluminium Arrows, usualy about a dozen.
Cammo Hoyt Compound Bow, with Mounted Quiver with half a dozen arrows.

i sometimes have in my left sleve a kasari weighted chain, actually a very usefull item in the bush.

I often have all the survival bits, binocs, first aid, ability for fire, survival tarps, quight a bit of Food, Water canteen with kidney cup around it, ezbit stove, water purification tablets, t, I sometimes wear a goggles, or mesh goggles for nighttime, if im going into places with crap to protect my eyes. sometimes, if im in a public area i just go a boonie hat in woodlands with a mesh mozzie bag in army green. hides me pretty well.

Things id like to take but due to laws, am unable to, Shurikins and uchuko climbing claws, love these for climbing but for some reason, a prohibited weapon. ive often thought of getting a grappling hook and rope but ive got a gumbie arm and probably couldnt pull my self up one.

I wish i could afford some night vishion goggles though.

I head off into the shrub with this gear on, and can go for some time, nobody will find me, see me, bug me. IM a bit weird.

A guy had a .50 cal at the range the other day and it was LOUD. That would attract ALL the zombies within a 20 mile radius! thumbs down on the 50 cal. AND it is about 3.50 per....i hope there are less then 100 zombies or you will be broke!

I won't argue but they can smell ya! If you make a tree house 20ft off the ground, they might work. Zombies can't climb trees.....I don't think...

Yeah, this was the solution to the "armored alien zombie" invasion. Just shoot the flying saucer! API!

God I hope not.

I'm hoping if the ZA happens it's more "The Walking Dead" than "I am Legend".

Although with "I am Legend" it would still be safe to ride during the day.......ANY BIKE YOU WANT!

If it is like "I am legend", we're all dead! Unless you currently happen to live in a bunker. Or have a few sun lamps!

Plain old slow zombies would be my choice. Easy to stop, you can even round them up and have them as pets! Looking forward to the next episode that explains that new development...
I hope they don't jump the shark! I can see it now, the Zombie rights moment

For traditional style zombies (slow,shuffling but relentless and in big mobs) a modified paintball gun I would think do the trick. Reinforce internals and the barrel. Convert it to accept propane instead of CO2 or Compressed air, and load it up with bearings, instead of paintballs. 200 shots in the hopper, tank on the back. In a pinch can be a flame thrower.
Could be a bit heavy with all those bearing rattling in the hopper. Propane is relatively easy to find, but bearings might be harder to come by than regular ammo. However for thinning out a mod, this might be a pretty good tool.

Would an aluminum full body chainmail suit work against bites and scratches? Should be strong enough to deter an occasional biter, and light enough to still be practical.
