It is Z-day. Zombies are everywhere. As they tear into you, you wonder why you weren't prepared. Now you can be! In this guide, I will show you how to become an invincible zombie slaying survivor. I will take you through all the necessities to proper survival.
Step 1: Primary Firearm-Assault Rifle
To survive the zombie apocalypse without running and hiding ( which is always an option) you will need to be well armed. The firearm is the most effective zombie defense weapon you can carry. As seen in the picture, the M4A1 carbine is by far the best weapon you can find. Some will argue that the AK-47 is the superior zombie killing weapon. They have obviously watched to many movies and have never operated with an AK. Yet it is a great zombie defense firearm with its pros and cons.
Pros of the AK-47: It is practically indestructible. It can work and shoot in any condition. It is very accurate with a long range. The ammunition and firearm itself is easy to find especially at Fleet Farms. The AK is also very small and light. It also has a wicked bayonet with wire cutters. The AK-47 is also manufactured in 5.45x39mm which is copied from the M4's 5.56 NATO round or more known as the .223 round.
Cons of the AK-47: It is not as easy to field strip or disassemble as the M4. The AK does not have terrible recoil but it is hard to control. The AK is hard to bench rest ( resting the barrel and stock on something to increase accuracy) because of its large, lumpy clip. The M4A1 Carbine or the civilian AR-15 are based on Eugene Stoner's AR-10 which led to the first M-16. It is rumored that the military has lied saying the M4 is better than the AK-47. If it is, the U.S. military would have switched to an AK design a long time ago and other countries like Germany wouldn't have made there own version of the M4. Yeh, the guys who invented the assault rifle. The M4 will be not that hard to find in a zombie apocalypse because of the amount of military personal deployed who may have lost there lives. The AR-15, which is the semi-automatic version, may be easier to find. The ammo for the M4/ AR-15 is easy to find. I have read that deep in the zombie filled future, all ammo will be used and we will be left with mid evil types of fighting yet there is a way to extend the ammunition period. This is called reloading or making your own homemade bullets. This would be easier to reload than the AK's 7.62x39mm round because finding the 5.56x45mm's brass shell cases fired from military personnel whom wouldn't waste time picking up their brass. The M4/AR-15 is also simple to operate and field strip. It does jam more than the AK-47 but it is easier to disassemble. The AR-15 is semi-automatic or fires on shot per trigger pull but there are special stocks which use the recoil to make it like fully automatic. These are also available for the AK-47.
