    Uh.. I'm not buying weapons and ammo out of fear for an apocalypse. It's a utilitarian thing. With weapons I can hunt, defend myself, and learn an invaluable skills in my free time (shooting, battery of arms, how to maintain\repair firearms). In addition, pretending there ever was societal collapse or civil unrest near me, I'd be ready. Finally, ammo has intrinsic value just like a firearm does. Because they're practical.

    It's an investment.

    Useless? No. There are multiple situations where you would be forced to defend yourself, if not your friends or loved ones. Depends on the situation but let's not pretend bad things don't happen to good people.

    Of course, the notion of a zombie apocalypse is ridiculous but that's not why the majority of people show an interest in firearms.

    Why are they useless? Do they expire? Will they still kill people in the future? There is nothing about a gun that is useless unless you don't have the balls to use it.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    plus, if I was prepping for a zombie apocalypse, I certainly wouldn't waste money on a friggin 9mm, .40 or .45 handguns. I would be buying .22 gun with a slew of rounds. cheaper plus zombies are dead which means they are decaying, .22 rounds would do the job.

    Ruger mark III extremely accurate and has yet to jam on me.

    I agree with you that weapons arent useless but if you buy them for a zombie invasion they will have no use for them and so they gonna be useless. Do you really think there will be a zombie invasion and you gonna have to survive on your own with your own weapons like in a video game? If you really think so you have to grow up. If such a case really then happens the government and the army are going to be the ones who will use weapons and kill zombies efficiently with helicopters and other machinery.

    you would waste .45 rounds on a zombie? o.O some bastard that is living will make you his $#@! because you have used up all your good rounds. while I, on the other hand am still carrying ammo for my SR.40 Ruger and .308 rifle..

    SR40



    .308





    Also, I do hunt deer in november every year.

    If people were smart, they'd buy gardening equipment, knives, crossbows, bow & arrows, swords etc in bulk instead rather than guns.


    At least buy ones that are suppressor-capable.

    =p most are. Just requires obtaining a threaded barrel or having the barrel threaded.. Many modern firearms come ready for this sort of thing.

    You can't just shoot it in the backyard? That's the way we do it down here in NC! You probably live in the city though.
