    I think this just about says it for most folks.

    Some people like horror movies and some like war movies.....just whatever one taste goes for.

    Seems an awful lot of folks tend to think if something doesn't match their likes/dislikes, it simply shouldn't be.

    The most realistic zombie movie created to date, is definitely 28 days later.

    It is epic.

    Negative. Thats the reason the weapon industry is gearing towards Zombie ammo and the likes.


    The real reason for the hype is because it sells.

    As others have already said, the answer is that "Zombie" is a metaphor for whatever might happen, especially something that would see roving groups of people that could be a threat. It's easier to post a hypothetical of "When the zombie hoards show up" as opposed to "When your town gets hit by the next Katrina". See?

    Basically, it comes down to the metaphor, though. Talking about opening fire on a crowd of looters = seen as a socio- or psychopath. Talking about opening fire on a crowd of undead = a guy preparing for the worst.

    BTW, even the CDC knows it's a popular trend and jumped in on the metaphor:
    Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse


    To a far lesser extent, among shooters, a lot of ranges won't let you shoot at human-representative targets. But a lot of those same ranges (not all, mind) don't care if you're shooting at cartoon-looking zombies.

    I'm sorry, something about hearing grown men talk about zombies and a zombie apocalypse in reference to anything just sounds absolutely ridicules and I'll never understand it.

    What I will never understand is why a person would pop in to say what you did.

    Either you don't understand it and want to understand it - so you research it.

    Or

    You don't understand it and don't want to understand it - so you do nothing.

    I don't want to understand your position - so I will not be trying to understand it. However, I will postulate that you are an extremely judgmental, closed minded and unprepared for Zombies. And, when you are surround by the Zombies you will be screaming like a little girl wishing you would have done your homework on the coming Zombie plague.

    Hornady zombie ammo, ruger zombie lcp, eotech zombie holosight, too rediculous. And at the gunstore they try to show me that since they think being a younger guy ill fall for it.
