    Presuimg that you were of a mind to do any of those things, the AK would be better.

    Arguments -could- be made for the 9mm being better for small game and fun at the shooting range, but I am not a big fan of S&W 9mm.

And the modern day phalanx anti-missile gun should essentially vaporize zombies with its thousands of rounds per second capacity.
    Well if we're getting all crazy with the tech, a tank would come in quite handy. But who can really afford them in this economy?

    Like hunting wabbits Elmer Fudge! Ever shoot a rabbit with a medium to large caliber?

    Not a pretty sight.

    And kind of pointless if you;re trying to get dinner.

    This is what I don't get about the novel World War Z. Why didn't nations just run over Zombies? A 50 ton tank will crush the Zombie's brain and Zombies can't get inside. Countries could really just design a heavy vehicle that's access ladder can be pulled into the driver's seat and make it really slick with no points for grabbing. And then just proceed with operation Carmaggedon.

    I assumed we were talking about the legal-to-own, semi-auto version, not the class-III version.

    IIRC the "full auto" version is selective-fire isn't it? Has a selector lever and the capacity to shoot single shots?

    It's not as accurate as an AR or a Remington 700, but it will do out to 300 yards.

    Poll choices were a bit corny. Neither 9mm or 7.62 is suitable for small game, and I prefer .40 or .45 in pistols anyway. There should have been one that said, "Because I ****ing want one, capiche?"

    That doesn't mean squat. Merely because you are accurate at the range doesn't mean you'll be accurate with hordes of the undead coming to eat you alive.
