    Fort and hide for me. I'd wait until they'd moved along then think about fighting. They're always looking for fresh meat. By the time I'd came out they'd be long gone.

    We've got deep and wide basements in Boston. Even without power you could keep a couple of years food and water in a triple-decker's basement with plenty of room for weapons and ammo if you're into that... I'd improvise on the weapons and stockpile the food and water myself. Im patient.

    I wish I had a basement like yours where I could stockpile essentials. Zombie apocalypse aside, I think a very real problem would be a catastrophic pandemic. That could quickly cause society to break down.

    Sick, slow zombies?
    I've got a thick stick. No problem keeping them away.
    If it was an airborne cause for the change well that would be different. No air filters in my basement.

    I remember some serious public health outfit modelling a zombie apocalypse as an exercise in preparation for an infectious pandemic (and a way of getting some media attention in the process).

    My plan would be to go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint and wait for this all to blow over...

    I do have suspicions that some of our govt ministers may in fact be undead beings.

    Lol reminds me of that brilliant British humour (nobody can do humour like the Brits! :D) called Shaun of the Dead!

    All they wanted I think they wanted was to try and get to the bar to have a drink hahaha even though the world was SCREWED! :D

    LOL

    Ingenious those drunken Brits!

    The central joke of Shaun of the Dead is the way that they remain absorbed in their own petty squabbles while the world is ending around them.

    The cricket bat is the English cultural weapon.

    (And doesn't need reloading)

    I have often thought or wondered what would be the best zombie fighting weapon. I'm a personal fan of close quarters weaponry swords, chainsaw, double headed ax, clubs, cricket bats, aluminum baseball bats ... that sort of thing. No reload and if well balanced you'd be a zombie killing machine.


    All that said, grenades would be cool too.

    Depends on how transmissible it is. If it's only bites that are dangerous then ok (though a ranged weapon would still be safer), but if blood spatter can infect you then close quarters sounds risky.

    And of course it depends on what type of zombie: the Shaun of the Dead type a cricket bat would handle; if it's the 28 Days Later type I'd like a few Claymore mines between them and me. ;)

    if slow zombies.. very sharp sword ... quiet is better.. no ammo to worry about.

    gun with silencer... for killing at a few yards... to lower the body count coming at me.

    i would find a better shelter than the current houses .. to many windows...
    basement is one way in... feels to much like a trap.

    True. If they are running "bee hive" style zombies I'm out. I don't have the kind of aerobic fitness needed for an apocalypse like that. Just bite me and get it over with.

    I would go with one of those Rambo style bandannas!

    So I can look extra dorky!

    Then my weapon of choice would be the BFG from Doom!

    You only live once!
