Step 7: The Primary Weapon.
1# Assault Rifles
Obviously, in previous wars with Vietnam and gulf war, The m-16 and m-4 proved themselves to be the Most Unreliable firearm in the world. although it's better then nothing, the m-16, in layman's terms, sucks.......badly. Popular American arrogance has brain-washed people into believing that America has the "best" weapons, clearly it does not.
However...there is a way to atone for your arrogance, Join the AK side of the force..... the AK-47 is not only used by over fifty countries as their infantry's primary weapon , but it is one of the best and cheapest assault rifles out their, in Africa you can buy a AK-47 for roughly 50$, meaning it costs roughly Three cows and two goats just to buy one of the most amazing assault rifles on this planet. However... something to consider when buying a AK-47...Can you handle it? In all seriousness in this Instructable, the AK has the kick of a mule, it will kick like Chuck Norris does. You would have to train for handling such a beast, while with the M-16 a ordinary gun-happy teenager could shoot the M-16 just by video game experience and a brief tutorial from a person who knows proper gun maintenance. Their is another problem that comes to mind when considering buying a AK-47.... how are you going to obtain it? the company sells fully automatic rifles only to military personnel, you can however obtain a "civilian" version of the AK-47, this is however...not a assault rifle, but you still can convert them illegally, this is however very illegal... and you would be in jail for approximately 20-30 years, maybe more if unlucky... but with a M-16 you can strut around with it in public like some gun-toting rooster, popular American arrogance at its finest!
2# Semi-Automatic Rifles
This genre of firearms is best suited against zombies and a few human attackers, as they have usually a bigger round, better accuracy when dealing with medium-long distance targets and some older semi-auto rifles include bayonets, which is a valuable asset when your rifle jams or is out of ammunition. Another reason to purchasing a older military model, is that the older military models usually are chambered for a bigger round.Take in consideration the M-1 Garand, It is chambered for the impressive 30-06, which is a bigger round then the 7.62x39 MM, and it has better accuracy at longer range. The M-1 Garand is also more simple then the AK-47 in terms of number of parts, and is easier to acquire legally. good Garands are hard to come by, and those that do have a hefty price tag (In most cases).
If you wish to purchase a Ultimate Zombie Fuckulator, you will not be disappointed with the sheer power of the M-1 Garand!
Ah....The Shotgun...One of the few Classical U.Z.F.'S. The shotgun is a Superior weapon when dealing with humans and zombies alike due to its ability to kill multiple attackers at close range. Because of the lead balls inside the buck-shot, it can be used to kill at least four or six human attackers, and may have the ability to disable about three or four zombies with a well placed shotgun blast, making it a superior weapon for close-range encounters. There is lots of variants of shotguns, from double-barreled turkey shotguns, to the Spaz-12. When picking out a shotgun, take under consider what it was designed to do. For instance, The Benneli M4 Super 90, a semi-automatic shotgun designed for the U.S. military, is the Ultimate Zombie Fuckulator in the shotgun class, because of it's ability of attaching accessories such as night sights, scopes and possibly a GRENADE LAUNCHER! This is of course if you can obtain a grenade launcher.
I suggest this type of firearm for people not use to firing guns, because accuracy isn't a terrible issue when it comes to shotguns.
Although some consider these archaic weapons, some are not actually bad to have. Most are reliable. the M-1 Springfield and the Mauser 98k would be the best choice, the M-1 Springfield's 30-06 round can still be bought, opposed to the Mauser's 8 mm Mauser round. These weapons however, i advise not to buy because older military firearms are usually not available and/or the ammunition used is no longer available.
