My Zombie Story<--------------- Click plz.
When I started thinking way too much about Zombies:Zombie Master. You scored 64% survivability and 65% kickass-ability!
When I first got The Zombie Survival Guide. I've read it like a million times.
What started my zombie fixation:
Zombie Survival Guide.
Favorite Zombie book:
World War Z, The Rising, City of the Dead
Favorite Zombie movie:
Gotta go with the clasics. Dawn of the Dead, old and new. Resident Evil's pretty good. I Am Legend, although they aren't technicaly zombies, they pretty much are. Also SHAUN OF THE DEAD!!!! And definitely Army of darkness and evil dead.
Favorite quote in any zombie movie:
"As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "i" in meat pie. Meat is the anagram of team... I don't know what he's talking about."
-Shaun of the Dead
Who died and made you fucking king of the zombies?
-Shaun of the Dead
-L.J. from resident evil
My score and score summary on the non-lame zombie survival test:
You were born for z-day. Not only will you be killing zombies left and right, but you will be leading the other survivors. You will be the one making decisions and the person who is looked to for advice. Congratulations.
Zombie Survival Plan
My plan is to stock up, then wait out the initial panic. I will then raid the armory that is just a few blocks from my house, and gather supplies then head to the military base close by. I am in a pretty good place, because I live in the middle of the praries in Canada, and it freezes in the winter. Because of my location, I can stand quite adverse weather conditions from -70 degrees to +120 degrees, from sandstorms to snowstorms, and tornadoes to blizzards. Everybody around here hunts, and very large deer are everywhere, like in my front yard, eating my tree. Getting weapons will be easy, as I live literally, 2 blocks from a military armory with humvees, tanks, helicopters, etc. I also live just a half hour away from BATUS (Brittish Army Training Unit Suffield) which is one of the worlds largest military bases that soldiers come from all around the world to train at. It does bomb testing and development, chemical weapons testing and research (which we all know means development), and weapons testing and development, so it is almost 100% assured that they will have every weapon I could possibly imagine and many that I couldn't, with Gigamafrozillions of rounds of ammo. They will have bomb shelters, fuel reserves, food reserves, and will be staffed by some of the most knowledgable people in the army. They will also be the last people in the world to lose contact with others. Contrary, to popular belief, we Canadians are not all maple syrup sucking, beaver coddling frenchies, who have never held a gun. Many of us are hardened, weathered hunters, with the occasional bushpilot or general adventurist thrown into the mix. So, it is becaus of those reasons that I believe that my chosen site for survival will be one of the best places in the world to take refuge.
Dom's zombie survival gear
Ok, I've put a lot of thought into this and this is what I would choose.
SCAR-H, Mk 17 Mod 0
I'd choose this because it can be fitted with a variety of barrels to make it a close-quarter battle rifle, or a long-range sniper. It fires a larger-than-average bullet and has an advanced magazine that carries 20 rounds, I would always keep it on semi-auto though, to maintain accuracy. It is a very versatile, compact weapon that would come in very handy. It also has rails to attach stuff. I'd carry it with a shoulderstrap. I'd also try to use a silencer if i could get my hands on one. I'd tape the magazines together too, so that i could just take it out, flip it around, and keep firing. I could attach a grenade launcher too!
Now, don't tell me that doesn't look Bad-A!!
I'd choose this because it had a high capacity 64-round magazine, a high rate of fire, and is quite accurate. It is also very compact. I'd carry it on a shoulder holster (see below)
If I didn't use the bizon, I'd use the MP5K-PDW
I'd use this becasue it's small, accurate and a good weapon, and has a fair 30 round clip, not as good as the bizon, but it'll do. It fires 9mm ammo just like my P99
This would be an ideal sidearm because it is compact, and most of all, it can be fired FULL AUTO!! Not that I would, I'd fire semi-auto to preserve accuracy. It has a 33 round magazine, and would be handy in a pinch. I'd carry it in a quick-draw leg holster. It also uses the same ammo as my P99 And MP5
A good pistol if you run out of ammo. I'd keep it on my combat vest. Just pull it out and place it to a zombie's temple, no need for aim or finesse, just fire and keep your mouth and eyes closed. It has good accuracy and fires a large 10 mm round with amazing stopping power, but, because of the limited availability of the rounds i might use this next weapon
I'd use this, it's very accurate, comfy, looks GOOD, and uses the popular 9 mm ammo. As mentioned before, this would be a last ditch defence, as in place-gun-to-head-pull-trigger strategy.
Long Range Weapon:
This is the perfect sniper rifle. It's semi-auto, but still retains the accuracy of a bolt-action. I'd keep this one in my car.
Seriously. No real description needed. That is SICK! If I were held by a zombie and couldn't get to my gun, just place my hand to his temple and fire.
A handy little accessory when need be. I'd use it to beat a zombie out of my way.
Other brass knuckle gun:
Seriously. This is too cool. I probably wouldn't keep this on me though.
Coffee Cup of death:
Because coffee is a very important part of zombie survival, and you don't want anybody to steal it. I wouldn't keep this with me, it goes in car, in specialy designed coffee mug holder.
Very versatile tool. Great for personal defense. You can easily brain a zombie, slide it out of the skull then bash another one int the face.
Very versatile, both of them. I'd only keep the hatchet with me though.
Also a collapsible baton
Ka-bars are always handy, useful for killing zombies , cutting up food, cleaning a kill, etc.
Who knows, maybe a foot long sharpened piece of rebar with a hockey tape handle, I wouldn't always have it with me though, too heavy, but I'd keep in car as an extra weapon if I needed it.
I'd have one of these, not to use for combat, but just as a handy tool, if a job needs a little more finesse than a Ka-Bar can give, like cleaning my fingernails, cutting food, cutting string, etc. They weigh very little, so I might as well take one, better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
Now for clothing:
I'd wear a black wife-beater, a light shirt over top, maybe a light long sleeve shirt over top of that, and a combat vest. I live in an area that can get cold, so I would wear lots of layers. If you get too hot, take a layer off, if you're cold, put another one. Also, more layers keeps you warmer than one thick layer because it traps air between them and heats it, also, more layers means more protection. Also, I don't plan to have zombies come within 100 yards of me.
I'd put my glock 29 or my Walther P-99 in this, extra mags, radio, mp3, flashlight, firestarter, flares, and water. I'd rig up some quick-release thing for it in case I get grabbed or snagged and need to get away.
I'd also wear army cargo-pants, because they are handy.
Combat boots with boot knife
Military cap with attachable light.
Those lights are super bright, and run for over 1000 hours on a single battery. They're cheap too. I actually have one.
I could attach the hatchet, ka-bar, baton, trench knife, and brass knucks on/in it.
You can put magazines in it and other stuff.
For my pp-19 or mp5 NOT THE GUN IN THE PIC, JUST THE STRAPS
For my auto pistol. WOULDN'T USE THE GUN IN THE PIC, JUST HOLSTER
Hydration bladder, I'd fit it over or under my vest and attach the straw thing by my mouth.
Military jet Lighter
This flare thing is super handy, there's another one that just rolls up into a little tiny package and comes with bangers and flares, Super easy to use and very cheap. Also very light and compact. The gun is the size of a pen.
For signaling and distractions.
For signaling and pointing to stuff.
You just need music to relax sometimes.
Spotting scope (to keep in car)
For use with grill, and a fire anywhere without fear of spreading fire.
Universal solar charger
Mini first aid kit
Duct tape is so handy, it can be used for anything, I'd also keep some electrical/hockey tape to fix grips, make grips, whatev.
YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keep a roll with me, a bunch more in car.
A watch would be useful.
Water purifier (standard marine issue), it's a hand pump one. I might use an ionizer, does same thing, takes a little longer tho.
Wiley X Ballistic Goggles (army issue) I saw some photos of soldiers that got hit by ied's but were wearing their goggles, their entire face was messed up, except for around their eyes, these goggles saved their eyes, and possibly their lives. They look cool too!
Fingerless, Hard-Knuckle Tactical Gloves
Tactical Knee and Elbow Pads
These are cheap, and awesome. If oyu need to light a fire, just use a match to light one of these, that way, you don't need to keep lighting matches. You can just start a stick on fire instead of using precious matches. If you need to, you can use this to waterproof your matches too. You can also just lay small twigs across the flame, and it will get bigger, and just keep adding stuff 'till you have a bigger fire.
Strike Anywhere matches are essential. They are small, light, widely available, cheap, and are easy to use.make sure you get ones with a white tip, like the ones here, that emans that you can really strike them anywhere. Some say strike anywhere, but you can only strike them on the box. Shop around.
I would use a good gas mileage (well, the best gas mileage one I could get) truck. I'd have a custom armored, extra large gas tank, body armor, cow-catcher thing on front, like on trains. Mesh over the windows. Roof rack with extra gas cans. Also, inside the vehicle, I would put all of my stuff, plus a lot of books, because I love to read.
And for food, I would keep a small supply in my car, forage and hunt for the rest.
I'd keep a lot of this.
Okay, after all of this, I think it's not to unrealistic. I have a lot of this stuff, and I live literally 2 blocks from a military armory. Even when I've factored in weight, I think I would be able to carry all of my stuff, I think with guns and ammo, and clothes, prob. 80-100 lbs, which really isn't much if you pack it right. Most of my stuff would be light-weight, military grade stuff, so that cuts down on weight, and I'd leave some stuff back in car, like sleeping bag, sniper rifle, scope, computer. I would leave a lot of stuff back at my camp like sleeping bag, laptop, charger, food, and I would only keep one pair of brass knuckles, not the gun one or the coffee cup. Also, I would only have like 7 mags for my main rifle on me, 5 for my auto pistol, 3 for the glock, and 2 extra for the pp-19, or if not the pp-19 then 3 for the mp5. The rest of the ammo I would keep in the car. Also, some of my guns use the same ammo. So yeah, that's my list, if I think of anything else, I'll add it. Plz comment and give feedback
I LIVE AT 50°00'54.14"N 110°38'25.95"W Survivors, try to find me. My city is surrounded by hundreds of miles of prarie and the closest large city is a 3 hr drive.
The Military base I will try to get to is located at 50°16'22.04"N 111°16'22.35"W
