The main character is played by Johnny Strong, who not only uses his own hand made knives in the film, but is also an avid M14 owner and portrayed MOH recipient SFC Shughart in Black Hawk Down. Oh, and the movie features songs performed by his band.

A one man army, that's for sure.

So ...
How many Zombies does it take to change a light bulb?

Has anyone else noticed that the Zombie / Post Apocalypse / Pandemic theme just keeps getting bigger and stronger in books, movies ( horror, comedy, romance), TV shows, video games, ammunition boxes, expensive personalised Zombie targets, flash mobs,.and actual "Zombie Day" exercises for first responders???

Seems like Mr Zee has gone mainstream.

What's up with that??

I wonder if somebody is preparing the masses for the real thing?
Teaching everyone that HEAD SHOTS are the only sure cure for Zombie Fever.

If so, I would probably not be using my M14 but rather something lighter and faster for multiple follow up shots in " a target rich environment". And practice a lot at multiple 6" - 8" -10" plates at close range. By a serendipitous co-incidence, I have stocked up on various sizes and colors of round and square paper plates. ...for camping ....yeah ... I really hate doing the dishes ... thats why I have all those paper plates.

These also make great practice targets for fast reactive drills. Eg ... partner calls out a color or a shape or a size for that string, with everything else no shoots. Mix them up, and repeat till you run out of ammo, then fix bayonets ( or draw your machete ) and slash up the remainders.

Anything semi auto with a hi cap mag in .223, .30 carbine, .30 Russian, or even .22LR would be my choices. A drum magazine might finally find a tactical scenario where it actually might be useful.

And remember, wear proper protection ... high thick collars, arm guards, etc.

That should get you noticed on the range.
PRACTICAL SHOOTING PRACTICE ....
with a twist.

I just saw a zombies vs. boy scouts movie. They were the fast zombies. Not a real fan of fast zombies. I like them old fashioned and slow.

He's using a SOCOM and they are more like vampires as they die in the sunlight.
