The debate over what is the best zombie defense weapon is a heated one, with many variables to consider. Looking narrowing at firearms, Shooting Editor of Outdoor Life Magazine, John Snow, offers up his picks for top three boom-sticks to have at the ready in a zombie outbreak.
Snow diplomatically chooses one pistol, one shotgun, and one semi-automatic rifle to have all his bases covered. Here’s how they ranked:
1) Pictured a right we have a fully customized LCW AR-15 by Lauer Weaponry, including an attached arrow gun and Beta-C 100 round ammunition drum ($1,895).
2) Coming in second is the Remington 870 Shotgun with extended magazine, adjustable stock, and attached flashlight ($1,000).
3) And finally, the Para Super Hawg .45 caliber pistol with fiber-optic site and double-stack 14+1 capacity ($1,370).
Personally, I’d take a .357 revolver over the Super Hawg any day. It has less moving parts to fail, it can fire both .357 and .38sp rounds making it less likely to run out of ammunition, and it’ll save you $1,000 on the purchase price.
When it comes to shotguns, a Mossberg has the same killing power at 1/3 the cost of the Remington.
The Lauer AR-15 is so over the top I can’t even comment on it. Practically speaking, the cleaning you’d need to do to keep if combat ready is probably enough to get you killed. But when imagining the zombie pandemic as seen in video games, it sure is fun to picture what kind of damage the arrow launcher could do.
So what do you think? What’s you pick for best zombie firearm?
