Zombie
 
At the expense of sounding like Rip Van Winkle asleep
for twenty-years, I would like to know how did the word
zombie enter into the firearm vocabulary? Everywhere I
turn I see or hear "zombie this or zombie that, or what
better gun to shoot zombie with than this ..."
. How and
why did the term zombie enter the firearm language?
:confused:

Zombie Apocalypse is the generic term for any major SHTF scenario. It has been used for a long time but got really popular a couple years ago. Zombies are idiots who make themselves unwelcome guests in such a situation and may be eligible as a repository for bullets by virtue of just being who they are. Let's hope that doesn't ever come to pass.

Now, a *real* zombie uprising with the undead looking for brains or whatever...that'd be a freakin' hoot! :D

i take it you havent watched many zombie movies.

the libs think we are referring to them. but its actually just a fun thought experiment and sometimes slang to cover any and all apocolyptic end of the world scenario, from meteors to plagues to volcano attacks or even an actual zombie uprising or sasquatch landing in new york in his flying saucer to start the alien invasion...

When I say "zombie apocalypse" I mean it literally LOL!... Now SHTF, TEOTWAWKI, and catastrophe are the things I say when that's what I'm talking about LOL.

I don't really believe in zombies, even though there are supposedly voodoo drugs that induce a zombie like state. But I agree with JonM, for me it's a semi humorous thought experiment, based on movies and books and such. Just for fun, nothing serious. Although I read a crazy article on zombie ants that scared me a little. I'll find it and post a link.

Shucks!! I was hoping for the walking dead.... :(

good read, pretty scary in the sense of... "what if this happens to people?" This case in particular, I don't think zombies would be out for brains, but it would definitely pose a serious bio-hazard.

The Omega Man (1971)

I think this probably helped things along. Heston, the man.
