Guide to perfect survival. [ STARTING GEAR ]
Hello, everybody. In this thread im going to tell you the (almost ^^) perfect plan of surviving. Ofcourse everyone has diffrent toughts how to survive, but this is the way you SHOULD survive.
Lets start with the STARTING GEAR.
Many of you may have already prepared for the Z-day! But most of all haven't.I guess everyone starts at his/her home, ofcourse if you aren't anywere else.
So lets start!
Find any bag, best would be if you would find a large backpack. Take some water and put it in your backpack. Two, 1 litre bottles will do the trick. Put in some long lasting food ( canned food isn't the best option, but will do if there is no other option) *REMINDER* Dont overcumber your backpack with food! Being fast is better than being fat...
Take some matches or a lighter. Grab a flashlight. Take some bandages ( some piece of sheet will do too), and some painkillers. *REMINDER* Before using pills read the instruction, because having an alergic reaction isn't too good. Put it all in your bag ( if there is no more space, use your pockets. If you have no pockets, you can put it in your underwear. REMEMBER survival is the key, not the fashion.) Finnaly find a weapon. Any sharp, long ranged weapon will do. If possible find a sword or something. If you ( or your parents) have a gun, take it. Its much better to kill zombies before they get too near to you. Dont place it in your backpack, it only takes away valuable space. Hold it in your hands, or put it behind you belt, pants or even put it in your pocket. ( pockets are bad choice. Why? When zombie starts running at you every second counts. I'll take time to pull out your gun from your pocket.) When you have done all of this, head out to the nearest town, village, house etc. *REMINDER* Avoid any infected if possible.
I have just hitted the character limit D: if you liked this, then let me know (in comments) that you want a sequel of the Guide of the perfect survival.

List - Best Long Range Scopes and Mounts
This page wouldn't be complete without a list of the best equipment you can get for long range shooting. Rather than edit the page, I figured I'd just make a thread so that more people will feel free to contribute. I want to keep this list limited to only what we feel the best equipment money can buy would be.
First of all, I think that ONLY 30mm tube scopes should be used. The cheaper 1" scopes are not as strong, and they have a more narrow field of view.
Leupold Mark IV 3.5-10x40mm LR/T M3 Front Focal
I like this scope because it has 65 MOA of adjustment. The parallax adjustment is on the side to make quick adjustments for different ranges. It uses (as I remember) 1/2 MOA adjustments for windage. This may seem pretty coarse for an adjustment, but it allows for faster adjustments with having the turn the scope less amount of clicks.
The elevation adjustment I believe was 1 MOA per click. Since this is the most adjusted knob, it makes it 4 times faster than a normal scope to get elevation set properly. Also it has turrets calibrated for caliber and bullet weight with the ranges clearly marked. So, you don't even have to count clicks. If you range a target at 800 yards you can just turn the elevation turret to "800" and you will be right on target.
Also, the reticle is in the front focal plane. This means the mils will still be "mils" no matter what level of zoom you have the scope set to. No more having to get the scope zoom set just right to accurately range a target.
This scope runs from $1,000-$1,200.
I am a firm believer in LaRue scope mounts. Everything they build is rock solid.
This set of rings is almost $200, but I believe they are worth it. I believe it's impossible to hold a good zero with a cheap set of scope rings.
Just read through this and I gotta say, nice detail excellent discussion on weapons and thier good/bad points.
I'll be referring to this regularly as I develop my own Zombie plans further :)

Ladies and Gentlemen! Let the November Project Begin!
I need every user to start contributing here. The plan is as follows:
1. Pick a continent you like.
2. Pick a country you like in that continent.
3. Create a page for that country.
4. Topics you should cover include: Laws, military forces, economy, terrain, natural resources, population and demographics etc. Please include your own as well if you want to!
Other people ARE allowed to work on your country's page. However, if they keep messing it up contact a moderator.
Please try and keep this guide tidy. We will try and make the pages more uniform once we get more done.
Also, avoid politics for the minute. Do NOT mention governments, parties, democracy, theocracy or any other ideology. We might cover that later once we have the facts in place.
So, over to you! Pick your country, create your page, get cracking!
Pictures are also a great addition when creating pages! (Go for it!)

I noticed you have brass knuckles but nowhere mention a trench knife or trench spike. I happen to have a trench knife as my last last last resort (Not a typo there either). While it is impractical as a primary weapon you have to admit the ability to pierce the zombie's skull would be useful plus you can punch it in the face to push it back even temporarily. Also I noticed you don't have machetes in your list of bladed weapons, I have a kukri machete and it's a good weapon, as good as any short sword or gladius.

The first step, towards making a hit on target is range estimation. Most of a rifles power is found on the downward curve of the trajectory. Thru the first 100 meters or so a rifle shoots fairly flat, regardless of caliber, beyond that bullet drop compensation must be made. While it is possible to learn to estimate ranges on sight, a laser range finder is alot faster and more accurate way to determine how far out the target it.
With your rifle sighted in, at 200 meters, and a small drop chart of different ranges and bullet weights taped to the stock, you can make rapid sight changes for range. For example, lets assume your chart shows 10" of bullet drop, at 300 meters. you flash the range, it comes out 294 meters, simply guesstimate 10" above where you want the bullet to strike, move up point of aim. This is alot faster, and eaiser than doing the math. A decent rangefinder is around $100.
Good luck on Z day

A newbie's guide to guns
Hello, my name is P0LaND, and I am "armament-ally" inept.
When I stumble on a thread dedicated to a specific gun, the use of guns, favorite guns, and/or calibers to use, I seem to stand and try to read what appears to be written in the Greek language. It is a language consisting largely of words, but consisting of more numbers than my brain knows what to do with.
While I have been around guns all of my life, they have all been firearms designed for hunting. Basically, shotguns and hunting rifles.
I'm sure I'm not the only one, hopefully, in this predicament. So I'll go ahead and hang my head in shame and ask the question, "What the hell are you saying?" in a way that won't clog up a perfectly good thread. As I dig through the site, I'll post more questions that I come up with, as long as people are willing to answer. =]
First things first. What is the best way for me, the newbie to begin learning about firearms?

One Quick Question..
First off, very noice guide, mate, I found it an interesting read and I've bookmarked it for future refference, though I have a question..
Reffering to your melee section, I'm a practicing martial artist with my own style of Jeet Kune Do, and I have to say I'm fairly competent at executing a high kick strong enough to puncture to the adam's apple, and a low roundhouse kick to the knee potent enough to stop a person from walking for a minute or two. Now while these tactics may be practical on human opponents, I would like to know how practical it is on zombies?

last stand off, SOL what weapon would u choose to go out with?
hey, here's a scenario for u all to ponder.
its your last days on the planet, u know survival is out of the question, and you're stuck in the middle of a zombie horde. you know that you're going to have to make your final stand, what weapon would you choose to take out as many zombies as possible before you fall to the masses that surround you?
personally i would get a chainsaw on a ten foot pole, u know the kind they use to limb trees where the gas tank and the starter cord and the trigger are on one end, and the 16" blade is on the other. i would make my final stand with that thing, i want to go out in style and i think it would be a gnarly showdown, i could probably take out quite a few of those bastards with it. and if i know that im gunna die, i might as well have some fun with it, right?
Underwater Zombie Hunt
If the zombies turn out to be max brooks style zombies then they can move around under water then acording to him there might be a need to hunt them down hunder water, in one of his books "the zombie survival guide" he talks about how to do this. What are your opinions on this and do you think that its reasonable. The reason I ask is beacuse it would probably be me who would be undertaking the mission since I have a scuba diving license.

Personal Project - Zombie Survival Guide
Why hello there. How are you this fine day?
I have worked for a few days on this as-yet-incomplete Zombie Survival Guide. Not only will it chart weapons, tools, defense stratagies, leadership skills, etc. important for a "Z-Day" scenario (a term that I may be using too loosely, haha!), but it will also have factual survival notes.
However, I have no survival experience. I haven't even got around to reading the SAS survival manual (yet).
That's why I am humbly asking the experienced people of the ZSDW for help writing this guide. If you have a sugguestion or would like to add anything, please post here and tell me.
Please do note that the guide is in a rough format (due to Wetpaint not liking direct copy/paste items from MS word much) and is still incomplete.

In my Zombie Survival Guide, I detail a small test to see what type of zombie you are dealing with at the start of an outbreak.
Basically, you send 1 or 2 people out with pistols and shoot the zed in 4 places: leg/arm, stomach, throat, or brain.
The reasoning is to determine how to kill these zeds. Limb shots deliver large amounts of pain to humans, stomach shots are usually fatal on humans, throat shots are normally 100% fatal on humans, and a headshot will kill both zombies or humans.
So, let's see if we can come up with some ways to see what you're dealing with. That includes speed, diet, reactions to sound and other things, etc. etc. etc.

Ragnar Benson has a series of books on survival, from improvised weaponry like Ragnar's Big Book Of Homemade Weapons: Building And Keeping Your Arsenal Secure, to medicine and other survival related items. The books are however hard to get a hold of, being out of print and containing recipes for illegal items. But a book worth having none the less
