Is the treehuggers fault. Apparently I'm supposed to give prey a "fair chance" so, the assault rifle with the 200 round rotary mag is out of the question.

Yeah, I've been running into a lot of outwardly sane people who seem actually concerned about this. It's like, out of all the plausible end of world scenarios, a guy wants to latch onto the least likely. As far as I know, apart from Jesus, there's no such thing as zombies, and opinions vary on Jesus.

I've thought about this a lot. I think the best zombie gun would be a Ruger 10-22 in .22 WMR, with 50-round drums. Enough punch for 75-100 yard kills, light recoil for fast reacquisition, accurate enough to go through an eye. Remember, only head shots are kill shots. .22 WMR would get through the skull once but probably not twice, just kind of rattle around in there and tear stuff up. Probably even enough punch to break a femur to slow one down while I reloaded or climbed a tree or something, too. Centerfires are tempting, but no one makes a very light-caliber slide-action rifle with a removeable box magazine. You really don't want to go too heavy with the caliber, because that limits your ammo load. Something like .25-20 would be perfect. Actually, now that I think about it, a pump with a box mag in .30 Carbine would be a pretty good zombie gun. Semi-autos are good but I'd want mine to be straight blowback, not gas-operated. There will be a shortage of Hoppe's #9 after the Zombie Apocalypse, and centerfire gas autos need a tighter maintenance schedule than I may be able to give them. I'm damn near as fast with a trombone rifle, and they're pretty simple.

Probably would want like a 2.5x 'scope with either an illuminated crosshair reticle or a 2-minute red dot. I'd want it on a Picatinny rail so I could get rid of it in a hurry if I damaged it, and I'd want a ghost-ring rear sight and a good thick ramp front.

*edit* Oh, and a bayonet lug. Gotta have a bayonet.

Take a little bit of emery cloth action to the feed ramp. It's a common problem with new, stiff 1911's. They have to kind of wear in and get a little loose, and then they become garbage eaters and can fire pretty muchany .45 auto round, including wadcutters.

My Korean-war era Remington-manufactured 1911A1 is bone stock except for an extended slide release and an aftermarket (Clark? I forget) barrel. Shake it and it rattles, and it's only good for "minute of can" accuracy. But it will feed everything up to but not including small children and low-flying birds.

On a zombie invasion scenario I'm sure I would like to have a sidearm as backup in either .40 or 9mm. Given that, it would not hurt to carry a small carbine that could use the same ammo as the sidearm. A foldable Kel Tek sub2000 comes to mind.

These are the times when I truly wish I didn't live in the anti-gun state of Massachusetts. Damn, that looks like fun! Oh well, New Hampshire isn't far away.

+1 to what Tom said on the 1911. I've seen 1911's that could feed anything, others that barely fed round ball reliably. I keep debating on picking one up. I don't need yet another caliber to stock / reload, but darn if .45 auto isn't a good one to keep around.

back to the original topic - my Ruger Mini 14 would be the primary zombie carbine. plenty of cheap 30 round mags, .223 is still cheap and plentiful. 2.5-7x scope to keep them at range. Haven't run any 'good' .223 through it yet, but I know it eats the cheap and dirty stuff just fine.

While we are making these anti-zombie preparations, what about having something on the side for other equally deadly threats like, vampires. IMHO, it would be great to get some boxes of hollow points in your caliber of choice, fill the cavity with a drop of holly water and seal it of with glue.

For werewolf, substitute the holly water with some silver-heavy solution and we are good to go.

Or if you have a little money to spend the installation of a Clark ramped (requires maching for the integrated ramp) barrel will do wonders. My 45 will load empty brass even after firing a whole case of cheap hardball through it. A good feedramp polishing usually works almost as well as Tom says.
BTW I prefer Magsafe for zombies.

Whenever I buy a new pistol, I always check to see if the feed ramp needs a good polish.
