One choice to me stands above the rest, and that's a semi-auto .22 mag in a reliable firearm like the Ruger 10/22. The .22 mag offers better brain
scrambling and skull penetrating abilities than the .22,yet ammo is only a bit bigger. Mind you, you better be stocked before the Zompocolypse as
it's not as common as .22lr. Still, you can fit several thousand rounds in a shoe box, so you should be able to hoard plenty. How many zombie's
could you kill with 3-4000 rounds? Also, the relativley small amount of combustion gases produced should allow for effective suppresion,minus the
Bows are cool but not for zombies. Arrows are bulky and unlikely to be recovered. Also, it takes a whole lot of practice to be able to shoot a bow
well under pressure,even a crossbow. The reason is trajectory; arrows fall fast. beyond about 30 yards, you have to know the range to the target
within a few yards to hit that brain pan.
I think swinging a sword for more than a minute would be exhausting, and if you don't lop that head off your still dealing with a "live" zombie. If
there's only one or two, I'd love to hack some heads off, but if there's more, give me range and my .22 mag!
