The Twelve Days of (Christmas) the Mayan Apocalypse (3)Posted: December 11, 2012
The world is ending soon. We don’t have much time. Let’s figure out what we’re going to do when it all goes to Hell. If you’re new to the Twelve Days of the Mayan Apocalypse, you might want to start here.
Day 3: It Wouldn’t be Apocalyptic Without the Walking Dead
On day two your neighbors started beating each other silly over cans of peaches and jars of peanut butter. By the end of the day a few of them were munching on human brains. On day 3 you wake up to everyone’s apocalyptic nightmare: zombies.
No one is sure where or how the infection started, but it spread so rapidly most of your neighborhood was caught by surprise. Now you’re low on food and you need to get out of the city before you become food. The walking dead clog the sidewalks, aimlessly wandering in search of anyone who isn’t infected.
You need a weapon if you want to survive.
I would leave the house with my PSE bow, Browning Gold shotgun, and my Walther PK 380. The bow is heavy to carry, but the arrows are reusable which is key when battling hordes of the undead. I also own a handy ammo belt for my shotgun, but that sucker would be empty in about two blocks.
If I had my choice, I would upgrade to an HK MP5. It kicks a lot less than the Browning and the ammunition is a lot lighter. The interchangeable magazines make it much easier to load. The only setback trading the Browning for the MP5 is stopping power. The Browning will put anyone on their backside with a 3 inch load of 000 buckshot.
If you had to get out of New York City alive, what weapon would you choose? Would it be a sword like Michonne from The Walking Dead? Or would you go for something with a little more firepower?
You’ll need something to do in the post-civilized world, so order one of my books while Amazon’s servers are still up and UPS is still delivering! Your money won’t be worth anything on December 22nd, so spend it while you can.
