Always assume the worst when talking about zombies, assume that they can run and are strong at the very least, that way if they aren't different you have an easier task than you thought you where facing. Also, assume zombies will decompose at a different rate, because the desease will certainly affect the bacteria that normaly carry out decomposition.
Also, when comes to guns, use semi-auto .22 weapons, using subsonic ammunition, and if possible, get a surpressor or find some other way of making it as quiet as possible. The .22 is fairly quiet, and when aimed at the head if it enters the skull the brain is pretty much f****** because the bullet will bounce around in the skull and destroy the brain. When firing a gun try to fire as little as possible, to avoid attracting attention. The bow and crossbow are also excellent weapons, however they are relatively slow to fire and hitting the brain and causing sufficient damage is tough with the bow. Also (assuming that it is legal) try to aqquire suppressors for as many of your weapons as you possibly can, in order to minimise the amount of attention you attract when firing.
For melee weapons, if you have the streangth blunt weapons are ok, but otherwise use a sword that is intended for combat (not like the modern fakes out there). A good machete or kukri would be a good weapon to use because they are designed to be tough and take a lot of abuse.
As for groups smaller is usually better. Less than ten people is ideal (but at the least 3) because there is generally less time spent on desision making and the smaller the group, the less food and noise they make. Larger groups are usually slower than smaller groups and attract much more attention.
When traveling use a bike as bikes are much faster than a walking person but quieter than a moter powered vehicle. Mountain bikes are preferable because you should probably avoid the roads and they are designed to take a significant beating and still function.
When baracading, make sure there is at least one extra way out, because otherwise if you are stuck by a large group (30 or more) you will have a hard time fighting free.edit on 2-3-2011 by JDBlack because: add stuff

Let me add something I picked up from Dave at the Pathfinder School Channel. This is the cheapest and fastest modification to a standard wrist rocket type slingshot that usually sells for around $10 at walmart or most stores that sell sporting goods.
He does have a better modification that costs a bit more, but this is fairly effective as is.
Best part is that it is light, cheap and easy to store and carry. And yet, it still functions as a slingshot.edit on 3-3-2011 by Ahabstar because: (no reason given)
