I'd still rather be rural with a large open area all around the house so you can see em' coming and get them at long range before they become a threat.
You an always make trips into a city or other area with supplies to restock.

Haha! "Zombie Liberals!" I love it!

2) Accuracy is key (head-shots only), so low-recoil becomes a huge plus.
3) Concealment is no longer a factor; if this really is Z-day, then every sane still-living person will be packing.
4) Ammo weight becomes a big issue; unless you're only staying home, any amount of travel means having to carry enough ammo to get from place to place.
5) Some genres of Z-day show the Zs still able to hear, so silence helps.

So all that said, the suppressed .22LR with a red-dot sight is probably the best sidearm choice (as others have said above).
Good points.

Agreed.

Not necessarily- I for one would have a gun tucked away in a hidden spot on my person still. Running into other living people may not be the happy reunion you think it will be. Humans are naturally adversarial towards each other, even when sharing a common goal. I wouldn't want to be caught without a trick up my sleeve (or inside my waistband).

Zombie Pistols

1. Suppressed American 180 22 with multiple 180 round tray mags.

2. Suppressed Calico 22 pistol with multiple 100 round helical magazines.

3. Suppressed Ruger Challenger with as many hi-cap mags as I could carry.

or better yet... Rifle versions of the above.

I think my 10/22 takedown would be my choice. Maybe my AK. Glock 19 for a sidearm.

Suppressed Glock 17 with 33 round magazine. One quiet shot take-down...

I think I'd use the 10/22 or the 22/45. Makes no sense using high priced ammo on worthless zombies.

I think a G19 is probably the most utilitarian sidearm one could own.

A suppressor can be very effective on .22 LR. as in the loudest thing you hear is the sound action clacking back and forth. You need to use subsonic ammo to get that level of suppression. For a 5.7 suppressor to really be useful would require subsonic ammo in which case why not just a .22 LR?

My 9mm suppressor makes my Glock hearing safe (I don't need to wear hearing protection to shoot it), but it most definitely is not Hollywood quiet. It sounds about like somebody slamming a door hard.

The quietest thing of all is an integrally suppressed .22 LR rifle. You can get integral suppressed barrels for Ruger 10/22 rifles that include bleed-off holes to keep normal ammo subsonic. These look just like a normal bull barrel on your rifle (no longer than normal). Several vendors make them.

I bought a G17 specifically as a suppressor host.

It make look a bit silly but my G26 works great with the suppressor also.

My G22, but I'm not sure if I would take 9mm or stick with the .40; I have barrels for both calibers, the 9mm is a KKM drop-in barrel. I'd probably go 9mm.

EDIT: I forgot to add my 4" Ruger GP100 in a crossdraw holster, and for back up, probably a tactical tomahawk from CRKT or something.

My long arm would be my Romanian AK-47 and 6 mags, one of them a Bulgarian 40-rounder.

Oh yeah....and IBTL!

My Glock 26. It's my favorite out of all my Glocks. It's also what I shoot best.

That's a joke, right?

That is soooooooo lame.
