    Suppressed 22 LR. Most likely my Ruger Mark-II (if I ever get off my butt and get the barrel threaded).

    I will undoubtedly pick up a Ruger SR22-T when they come out (threaded barrel). That would then become the preferred Zomapocalypse side arm in my book.

    FN 5.7 20 round mags, hi velocity, low recoil. I have my doubts about suppressors. They do cut down on "pop" but not like a whisper in the movies. And they will add bulk / cumbersome to carry.

    A PMR-30..... Plenty of power, good accuracy, light weight with lots of capacity! Extra rounds small and inexpensive LOTS can be carried.

    Thats, IF I ever get one! LOL ;)

    I love newbie for ignoring the rules on No fun Zombie threads.

    Well I'll take it for what its worth.

    While the suppressed .22 has merit, I really wonder if its enough to destory a zombie's brain

    I rather go with a G19, 33 round mags, and an Avantage arms .22 conversion , if a .22 can do the job.

    Ohh and...

    Ruger 10/22 takedown.
    Pistol's.
    NOT the Zombie gun I saw on American gunners (whatever the show is called)last night which was an 1892 lever action rechambered for .500 smith with a skull muzzle break on the bbl. Cost the dude 6,000$!:rofl:

    Eric doesn't hate all zombie threads. He even started one not too long ago.

    I'd go the suppressed .22 route. I have very little doubt a .22 will destroy a human brain.

    If other humans are a threat I'd take my 17L with 17, 23, and 33rd mags.

    For me probably a Glock 21 with multiple 30 round Arredondo mag extensions.

    A suppressed hand 22 carbine like a Browning Buckmark carbine would be nice too light and super accurate.

    I'm pretty sure it was an '86 Winchester 45/70 action. Don't think the '92 could stand up to the 500 Mag.
    Now, back on topic, I personally think a good, semi-auto 22lr rifle or 22 Mag handgun would have more then enough "zip" to destroy the Zombie's brains since only head shots count when it comes to putting down a Z. JMHO, YMMV.

    I like the idea of suppressed .22's as well. The low noise tactic would be a very good idea when trying to stay below the zom's radar.
