28 November 2012 - 03:26 PMInitially, the most common rounds will be the easiest to find (of course.) After the idiot masses have had the opportunity to wastefully deplete the available supply of that ammo, there will be a shift. Common rounds that are not commonly fired from high capacity, quickly reloadable, semi-automatic weapons will probably be easiest to find after that: 357 magnum, .38 special, 30-30, 30-06, etc.
Even though they aren't the best zombie survival choices, I think .22lr and 12 gauge shot shells will be available for a long time simply due to how much of those types of ammo are produced. I would put 5.56 in that category as well, but military and LEO will probably burn through that like crazy.
I wonder how long it would take for people to be reduced to using muzzle loaders?
19 October 2012 - 12:16 AMI've been considering picking up a Tokarev TT one of these days. Is that old enough?
19 October 2012 - 12:15 AMI read a magazine article awhile back that described how practicing with bows, blowguns, and slingshots has been shown to lead to significant improvement in shooting accuracy. They all teach breathing control, hand-eye-head coordination, target acquisition, and steady release and follow through. I imagine airsoft guns would do the same, in addition to teaching weapon controls (assuming the controls were designed to mimic the real weapons.)
11 September 2012 - 02:51 PM30 rounds vs. 5... magazine changes vs. reloading one bullet at a time... Sorry, the S&W 500 loses. Even if the little rimfire 22 required 3 shots to the head to scramble enough brain, you'd still be able to kill twice as many zombies without a reload. You simply don't need nearly that much power to stop a mansized creature, especially with a headshot.
There are lots of better caliber choices for zombie suppression than rimfire 22 calibers... the S&W 500 is not one of them.
