My uncle picks up shotgun shells each week. A friend of mine has an AK47, AR-15, M1A, 2 1911's, 2 glocks, a shotgun, and a .357. He buys ammo for the weapons he uses (Mostly AK and glocks) regularly.


500+ rounds of ammo is going to keep you alive much longer than a sword. Also, ever heard of a bayonet? Using a sword you'll be out of breath after killing about 15 zombies. More specifically, you can't hit them from far away, they will swarm you and you can't hit all of them at once with a sword. Your logic is silly. Not to mention I keep several other kinds of weapons handy.


Load up all this ammo, plenty of canned food, water, and toilet paper and head for the mountains or a remote lake. I think I'll do just fine.

If it's a virus based zombie apocalypse, I'd imagine that it'd be pretty hard to not get infected.

Crap in the air, zombie corpses in your water...etc

This would only apply before such outbreak to prepare.

During the outbreak - Noone is gonna give 0.02 about money.

My thoughts exactly. I mean it'd have to be a body fluid to body fluid transmission for sure. But could mosquitos transmit it. I dunno. It could be pulled off. But damn would it all suck.

What would be really funny is if zombies were outnumbered by us like 4 to 1. We could have a field day!!! Just casually walking down the street going to the store and BLAM! Someone takes out a zombie.

Ok, when you get swarmed, tired or whatever else. Don't ask me to help you.

Can I come? I've got some hands to help use a gun. Unless I have my own by then.

Oh crap, you Americans will have the advantage with your much easier access to firearms. I guess I need to go back to martial arts training...
