Urban/City Tactical Zombie Survival List

Nate "MaddLion"
The list author says: "This is the first real "Urban" Zombie Combat survival list. Not everyone is a hunter/gatherer and lives out in the sticks. A majority of the US populace lives in or very near a city. That calls for a whole different Zombie survival skill set. Your days will be spent scavenging anything and everything possible to help you survive. You'll face a larger concentration of the undead than your country cousins. You don't stand and fight no matter how well armed you are because you will run out of ammo eventually. You stick & move... bob & weave.. hit & run!!
Your goal is to keep moving. Always have a destination in mind, but maintain your safehouse. Your goal is to tuck yourself- and a few friends/family- away and raid nearby apartments. Find a hospital/clinic/School or any two story building with a fire escape as your HQ/living space.
You'll have a plethora of vehicles to use as physical barriers and distance markers for your shooters.
They don't have grocery stores in the hood, but you will have plenty of pawn shops (weapons/equipment) and liquor stores (cleaning wounds).
I'm rigged to carry one Shotgun, one melee and 3 handguns aka "Tank Mode"
my firearms of choice are:
1. a Saiga SemiAuto 12 Gauge with 00 buck and slugs. Add any tactical sling to aid mobility.

2. Two Nine Mil (kept in shoulder and leg holsters)with +P JHP rounds. I don't need my rounds passing through rotted flesh and injuring anyone with me.
3. One .40 Beretta PX4 (kept in tactical vest) This is my man stopper (Don't start none, there won't be none). Let's face it, survival is going to be very ugly and it brings out the worst in human nature.
It'll be you vs them.... Make sure it's them."

Large Crowbar
Large Crowbar
"Nothings better than a crowbar. Use this as a tool or weapon (won't ever run out of ammo). Nothing better for bashing in skulls, breaking legs, arms, doors, prying open boarded buildings or using for leverage. No finesse needed here son. Need wood for fire? bump a saw, just break a door down and then into itty bitty pieces. Corner store sealed tight with a thick metal fence? No problem."

"The infected are hot on your six, you're wounded and you have no choic but to "Alamo" it. Find a defensible building. You have about 1 minute before they get to you. Out comes your cans of 30 weight oil.  Spread that stuff over the floor and leap over the counter.  Watch them slip and fall, then employ your shotgun. This tactic is perfect for deployment on stairwells, hallways..etc."

"If you choose to carry a Shotgun (You'd be a supreme idiot if you didn't), then you need a tactical sling. Your best bet would be to assign one of your boys to shotgun duty so you have one less thing to weigh you down.  Plus the logistics of this in the front and the Machette or crowbar strapped to your back will feel pretty weird, if possible at all. Options.., Options.., Options.."

Who wants Zombie bits and pieces slapping you in the face anyway? nasty."

"When you're making plans to scavage, it'd be best if you knew what was between you and the next building. Eat em Ups shuffling around? Well, how many and how far out are they? The other thing to consider is using them to mark distance for weapons fire. Combine these with the next product and you have a pretty good tag team."

"you're holed up in your Hq/Safehouse/hideaway joint.. on your next trip to find food, you have your spotter use the range finders to tell you how far a certain object is (car, side of building..etc). Mark that object with the spray paint. Make sure it's large enough to be seen with the naked eye if possible. Those will be your weapons fire distance markers.  Use whatever system you want"
