Personal Defense in the Coming Zombie Apocalypse

By Chuck Hawks

Around the world, zombies are preparing to arise and wipe out humanity in a coming Zombie Apocalypse. We all know there is a worldwide UN conspiracy to conceal the truth about the approaching zombie apocalypse and we all know the Federal Government, spear-headed by the Center for Disease Control, is desperately attempting to prepare for the coming Zombie disaster.

We also know that Government preparations are too little and too late. Since the zombie outbreak will grow exponentially, the government will be unable to control it and civilization as we know it will collapse. We realize that, as anarchy and government repression march hand in hand to the zombie tune, it is individuals, you and me with our families and friends, that will be suffering and dying in small groups. So what can we do to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse?

The answer is to arm ourselves. We must have guns and more guns. However, firearms are useless without ammunition and to combat zombies you need the right ammunition. I mean, since zombies are already dead (or undead, as the case may be), you can't kill them, right? "Stopping power" takes on a whole new dimension when dealing with zombies.

Zombies are mindless, relentless, reanimated corpses with a hunger for human flesh. Modern zombies have evolved to become smarter, faster and stronger than ever before. Zombies are created by a deadly and contagious virus, so human victims of zombie attack may themselves become zombies. The Zombie Apocalypse is, literally, a deadly threat.

Fortunately, Hornady (hornady.com), the pioneering company behind the development of LeverEvolution, SuperFormance, Dangerous Game, Critical Duty, Critical Defense and TAP ammunition has come to our rescue with Zombie Max ammunition. Zombie Max ammo is loaded with green polymer-tipped Z-Max bullets specially designed to STOP zombies in their tracks. According to my friends at Hornady, Z-Max bullets are proven to stop the undead for good.

Hornady's Zombie Max ammunition disclaimer bears repeating:

"Hornady� Zombie Max� ammunition is NOT a toy (IT IS LIVE AMMUNITION), but is intended only to be used on�ZOMBIES, also known as the living dead, undead, etc. No human being, plant, animal, vegetable or mineral should ever be shot with Hornady� Zombie Max� ammunition. Again, we repeat, Hornady� Zombie Max� ammunition is for use on ZOMBIES ONLY, and that's not a nickname, phrase or cute way of referring to anybody, place or thing. When we say Zombies, we mean�ZOMBIES!

As you can see, Hornady Zombie Max ammunition is serious ammunition, the ideal survival tool for the coming Zombie Apocalypse. You will need plenty of Zombie Max ammo in your "bug-out" bag. Stock up now at your local Hornady ammunition dealer.

Zombie Max is available for handguns in .380 ACP w/90 grain Z-Max bullet, 9mm Luger w/115 grain Z-Max bullet, .40 S&W w/165 grain Z-Max bullet and .45 ACP w/185 grain Z-Max bullet. Zombie Max rifle calibers include .223 Remington w/55 grain Z-Max bullet, 7.62x39 w/123 grain Z-Max bullet, .30-30 Winchester w/160 grain Z-Max bullet and .308 Winchester w/168 grain Z-Max bullet. For those who believe in 12 gauge correction, Hornady offers 12 gauge Zombie Max shells loaded with 00 buckshot.

The availability of Zombie Max ammunition establishes the standard for humanoid zombie defense calibers. Your handguns should be chambered for the .380 ACP, 9x19mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP cartridges. Your rifles should be chambered for the .223, 7.62x39mm, .30-30 and .308 cartridges. Your self-defense shotgun should be a 12 gauge.

For example, my zombie defense pistol of choice is a 9x19mm Glock 19 with tritium night sights. My back-up pistol is a .380 SIG P232, also with tritium night sights. My scout rifle is a .30-30 Winchester Model 94. My zombie shotgun is a Mossberg Model 500 Marine model, since my final refuge will be on my sailboat. (Zombies do not swim very well.)

A new zombie threat is the emergence of zombie varmints. Once again, Hornady stands ready with the answer in the form of Z-Max varmint bullets for reloaders. Be ready to "mist-ify" zombie varmints and prepared for Zombiegeddon when varmints attack.

Z-Max varmint bullets feature:

  • Explosive Hornady� performance specifically designed to vaporize zombie varmints.
  • Ultra-flat trajectories send mangy menaces to the varmint graveyard.
  • Available in the most popular varmint calibers.
  • Combined with AMP� jacket technology, the Z-Max� bullet is built to...MAKE DEAD PERMANENT!

Even with Zombie Max ammunition and Z-Max bullets, you must aim for the chest or head of humanoid and varmint zombies. Keep shooting until the zombie goes down. Have plenty of ammo on hand, as zombies tend to attack in undead groups. Fortunately, their speed and reaction time is at least somewhat slowed by already being dead, so less lead is required to hit moving zombies.

For the unfortunate among you who don't already share your life with a feline companion, you should know that a cat is an ideal zombie (humanoid or varmint) early warning system and cats are immune to the zombie virus. Adopt stray or shelter cats, as felines hate both zombies and varmints, and can sense the presence of nearby zombies before you become aware of them.

Given adequate warning by a friendly feline, lock and load with Hornady Zombie Max ammunition and prepare to splatter zombies. You, too, can help preserve the remnants of the human race with Hornady Zombie Max ammunition and Z-Max bullets!
