which one the 50 cal? naw for sniper work I would go with the Barrett M82 .50 cal they are getting one mile kill shots in Afghanistan with these puppys

I would not recommend an attempt to maneuver through hordes of zombies in urban terrain or indoors with a 120cm, 15kg, 12.7 caliber rifle, nor an attempt to shoot it while standing up straight. It is a kickass weapon, though. But oh-so-impractical.


I wouldn't use a sniper rilfe in close that is when I switch to the M4

More power doesn't necessarily equate to more effectiveness when you're shooting armor-less skulls.
However, a heavy pistol is usually a more accurate gun, so for mid range I'd say a .500 S&W Magnum because it's got a good weight, stronger than the Desert Eagle .50 cal and it's very easy to clean and won't gum up with mud so easily.

For close range, you'll want something that can fire shots more rapidly with less kick-back. So I'm going with a Glock G17, because it's durable and reliable. You can bury it in sand, pull it out and fire it immediately and it won't jam.

For long range, even a .22 cal rifle would be effective for headshots, so we're going to go with a light weight gun with a plentiful ammo type. A Winchester Wildcat. Much like the Magnum, it's a simple build, easy to maintain and reliable.

But if The Walking Dead has taught us anything, stealth is the key, so noise is bad. So your standard recurve bow would be ideal. Just make sure the heads are Bullet or Field points. You want to be able to retrieve them without too much hassle.

I would use a G36 K for moving/scavenging and the MG42 for securing my hideout.

Well, this is all for pretend, so it don't really matter,

but an assault rifle, including five magazines, weighs around 10 kilograms total. And the 12.7, including two magazines, weighs around 30 kilograms. And you're probably going to have to wear a few other accessories, because let's face it, assault rifles jam-- a lot. Even the standard military vest that you most likely will have to wear to keep your magazines in, is going to weigh an extra two kilograms. And a backpack for the 12.7 magazine(s). All in all, though, depending on the number of magazines you will be carrying, and extra equipment, you're looking at around 40 to 50 kilograms of weight, if not 60 kilograms. Now that I'm sick, unfit, that's roughly my weight. So you could say that you would be carrying me, a whole person, around with you on your back.

And if you've been on a shooting range, you would constantly be switching between pointing your gun towards the ground when you're waiting to shoot and quickly back up towards the target when it's clear to shoot. Down, up, down, up, down, up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21azMSxFiC4 It's pretty exhausting, even without an assault rifle. And with about 5-8 kilos, depending on the assault rifle and its accessories, it gets exhausting pretty quick.

And have you cleared a small building before? When you're in good condition, that zaps about half of your energy right out of you. Just enough energy for an aftermath, if that. Even when all you have with you is an MP5, a P80, and standard equipment, which is roughly 15 kilos. In fact, that's not what drains the most, it's the clothes, the vest, the gas mask, and all the little things that's strangling. Or at least it drained me, and I felt that it was about as much energy as I had left when I was done.

Not that I'm saying that you haven't thought of this. Maybe you're thinking of a different scenario than I am. I'm curious. Because I'm thinking that I have to be on the move, or at least ready to move, alert and flexible, at all times.

Am I being too realistic? I tend to do that, sometimes.

No no I see where your going I would use 12.7 from a fixxed place somewhere I know they can't get to me and at a great disstance. The reason I wouldn't use a 9mm sub is lack of stopping power
When I was in Iraq a lot of the bad guys were very high on meth and when you mix meth with religious fanaticism your going to get something as close to a zombie as your ever going to see and the 9mm just wasn't stopping them it normaly took a full 3round brust to bring them down and only if you hit center mass or a lucky head shot which is a lot harder then most understand

The problem with guns is that they eventually run out of bullets and the only way to kill a zombie is to blow off their heads. Dumb people think they can survive a zombie apocalypse with guns that's why so many of them end up as zombies...

Machete and compound crossbow oh and cardio lots of cardio.

In reality, I generally hate guns, but since we're talking about a fictional zombie scenario...

I guess a rifle? I don't have the fitness required for anything close range. Shooting from a distance is also my preferred method in videogames
