What about the zombies, huh? Bet you didn't think of a bayonet that would whack a zombie!! Come to think of it, neither have I. Let me work on that. >:D

Totally derailing the topic

MAS all that's covered in the Zombie Survival Guide. Better to have a crowbar and or a fire axe.

Continuing the derailment - Zombies, you need to read the book Day By Day Armagedon.  Simply the best zombie book ever.

You never want to use a blade on a zombie.

Sounds like the start of a new thread ;).

If I didn't have a trusty 12 gage with 00 magnum shot (or have run out of ammo because there are too many freaking zombies), then a fire axe should do nicely. If there was enough time to prepare, a (real) katana or polearm should give you the reach and ability to decapitate zombies before they can shuffle into grappling range.

Like the bayonet, there are probably lots of great alternatives to swords and polearms, but unless you are willing to lug around a flamethrower or destroy entire city blocks with thermobaric weapons, something smaller, lighter and always at your side is probably prefferable.
Dagny, this is not a battle over material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.

You can not allow zombies to get close enough to you to use an axe or a bayonet on them because it will inevitably lead to blood splatter and then you'll get the virus. 

Even if you run out of ammo, it would be better to stick to open areas and run away than risk hand-to-hand zombie combat.

Well actually the CASW would be of limited use. Unless you full decapitate or destroy the brain the Zombie will just continue to crawl his/her/it's was toward you

Much better to have a low caliber highly accurate rifel with surppressor to hit at long range while looking for a method of extraction.

I was thinking about a Ruger .22, semi auto HB with a bipod and scope for L/R engagements against a/m zombies.

.22 ammo is plentiful and light. For close engagement....walk away if you can. Zombies can't run.

Maybe an aliminum softball bat.

Edit to add: Make suur aforementioned .22 has a bayonet lug on it!!  ;D

I'm a fan of the .22 idea, especially now that I've recently found out that some Canadian retailers are offering 50 round drums for the 10-22.

Some people just don't see the threat....They will though but it will be at about the point that the zombies are feasting upon them.

Not us few though, we know the truth and shall be prepared
