I finally picked up a close quarters weapon! 18" machete with a D-shaped handle and non-reflective blade. I had to compromise on the "solid construction", because I was unable to find any blades with this feature. However, upon further inspection the "plastic" handle is actually quite heavy-duty, and appears to able to take the impact of zombie skulls. It's a good weight, easy to swing, and legal.

Zombies beware, I'm keeping it next to me when I sleep.

Regarding Justin's comments, while the zombies where quite impressive in Versus, there are not a realistic portrayal of zombies, as true zombies lack neither the accuracy or muscle coordination or ability to think beyond "eat", all of which are necessary to operate a gun. However, this does not diminish the entertainment value of Versus.

This does bring up an important point, which Slash alluded to. Arms training is important. As of yet, I have not had any gun training. I am hoping to add "Shooting Guns 101" to my curriculum before fall.

Hey, I have a gun and would be happy to take you shooting whenever you like.

Congrats on the white belt.

This weekend I finally purchased the gun I had been looking at for a long time. It's a remington police magnum 12 gauge pump, with telescoping stock, pistol grip, and a recoil absorber.

I took it to the range saturday and fired of a few, and felt like a badass zombie slaying machine. At about 20 feet (I assume most zombie related shootings occur at about that range) this gun would remove the zombie's head from the sternum up.
