Ahh the Great Courtney Zombie walk.. A high point for all us Vancouver Island Zombie Fans. (We Promise next year Brainsbrainsbrains will be in participating)
The event was held Saturday October 27, 2012 @ 3pm. The shamblers began their march at the Sid Williams Theatre walking up 5th street and ending at Simms Park. My favorite was the zombie in the lead he definitely looks like a “real” zombie. All in all it was a great zombie walk!!
An organized gathering of like minded and caring citizens who have wiggled their way up from 6ft under to lurch, limp and writhe in downtown Courtenay. Participants must bring at least one non-perishable food item for the Comox Valley Food Bank. Meet in the side parking lot at the Sid Williams Theatre.
Alright so you have your essentials; food, water, booze, smokes, pot, matches, porn mags (to start a fire with of course) and a gun. The last thing you want is some back from the dead walking corpse to screw up your plans. Lots of choices when it comes to guns. The most important things you should look for are: availability of ammunition, accuracy and versatility. If ammo was in short supply… which it probably would be. I’d go with a good semi-auto .22 with a couple 30 round clips. Why? 22 rounds are cheap and every gun shop in the world has ‘em. Throw a good scope on that and you’ll be get head shots one after another. It’s not going to do anything at long range but if you’re in safe position and have hoards of zombies heading your way why waste hard to find ammo. A 12 gauge shotgun could be a great choice too for up close. Grab some double-aught (00) buckshot and you could knock down a group of zombies. If it was something long range you were after, which isn’t a bad idea to keep the as far away as possible. I would go with a 300 win mag, great gun at long range and it’s not hard to find ammo. If it can take down a moose, it will take down a zombie.
…Now I know some of you just want absolute cut a zombie right in half kind of firepower. Well the guys at Moss Pawn in Atlanta, Georgia have come up with the ultimate zombie gun… The AR-15 MALL NINJA TACTICAL ZOMBIE DESTROYER. It’s an AR15 featuring a Muzzle Break, Bipod, 9 Magazines, 3 Lasers, 4 Flashlights, 3 Red-Dot Sights….is that it?
Red Jacket Guns built a beauty with help from Max Brooks author of The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. It’s a .22 caliber rifle (Reuger 10/22) with a bullpup grip, a surpressor
an ambidextrous charging handle, magazine release and an aluminum rail to mount your light. The gun they put together is light, silent, easy to use and does the job at close and long ranges — “we call it the Red Jacket ZK-22 Bullpup rifle.” “We added a tactical solutions lightweight aluminum barrel, Red Jacket magnum .22 suppressor and a Vortex SPARC red dot scope for good measure. You can even throw in a mounted spike for the hand-to-hand moments in your killing spree.”
Awesome! Wish you could buy the Red Jacket ZK-22? Well you can, here’s the link.
