Zurvival Saturday (14)
For this week's Zurvival Saturday I wanted to discuss my Top 5 favorite Zombie Slaying weapons.
1.)The Crossbow- Before Daryl Dixon, a young woman named Buffy Summers carried one around making the undead obsessed me fall in love. Not only does a crossbow look cool but it also is good at killing things (animal and zombie alike). Now granted crossbows do have weight to them so it is important to find one and become accustomed to it before SHTF. I'd even go so far to say that you should go hunting with it a few times as well, that way you can feel what it's like ripping an arrow out of a creature. Plus Hunting is a valuable skill to learn and who knows you might just catch some dinner on your first go out.
2.)The Parang- Think of the parang like the sexier older brother of the machete. Light, razor sharp and perfectly balanced, this is one of the best weapons you could own if a Zombie Apocalypse were to happen. Plus it's renewable. All you need is a whetstone or oil stone and some time to renew the blade to perfect zombie killing sharpness. I highly suggest perfecting this skill before the need arises.
3.)The Sling Bow- Lightweight and portable, the sling bow is the perfect weapon to carry around during a ZA. These little babies don't look like much but they are just as accurate as any bow with none of the weight. All you need is to carry a quiver of arrows and some extra tubing for the sling, that is it. You can buy different color tubing and it will give you more draw power. Like everything else best to buy and try before the need arises.
4.)AR-15- lightweight, handy, durable, and quiet(well quieter then an M-16), this is one gun I'll be grabbing if the Zombie Apocalypse were to hit tomorrow. Plus this ammo is relatively easy to find, which is a big bonus.
5.)Shotgun- While a shotgun isn't my first choice, it is the simplest to use. A big plus is ammunition is everywhere and it's cheap to. You will definitely want to stock up before SHTF, since that's probably the first to go if the Zombies did rise. Still a shotgun is great if you need to dispatch a large group quickly and I think worthy of carrying around.
Now for this weeks questions. What is your weapon of choice? Have you ever used it in the field? Leave your answer in the comments below. I love reading your responses.
