The AMC’s notoriously popular zombie apocalypse series has scored thousands — if not millions — of die-hard fans across the world, so much so that has left many people wondering what would they do if a zombies really did take over. Is it possible? According to hardcore zombie apocalypse doomsday preppers, yes.
The walkers (known as the undead or zombies in other zombie story lines and universes) in Walking Dead came about after a mysterious virus infected the world’s population. The living carry the virus, but do not not turn until they bitten or die, though the brain must be intact. As with many other zombie story lines, walkers are awkward, slow moving beings that are easily distracted by light and sound. However, in large groups and herds, they can easily overwhelm even the most experienced survivor.
While guns are an excellent way to combat large groups or walkers or in emergency situations, they’re not always practical. In fact, the noise of the gun can put you and your group in dire straits, as walkers are drawn to noise like moths to a flame. Weapons such as small tactical knives, tactical tomahawk axes, and crossbows are perfect for fighting walkers in closer quarters, and are practically noiseless. Large and small tactical knives would be especially helpful in zombie apocalypse universe, as they can be used not only to dispose of walkers, but for other survival tasks as well.
When stocking up on zombie apocalypse weaponry, keep in mind that you can buy tactical knives online or at a variety of brick-and-mortar retailers. Be sure to find one that is light and easy to carry, yet durable enough to easily penetrate a walker’s skull. Small tactical knives can be used in emergencies, however, a large tactical knife may be better suited for combat. Also, remember that every day objects and tools such as hammers, screw drivers, and baseball bats also make great weapons.
While many may scoff at the idea of a zombie apocalypse occurring, it doesn’t hurt to prepare just in case.
