Hate to tell you this bub but there are people that can kill you a lot quicker w their blades than you can w a gun pointed at their face. If I'm close enough to reach you w Dark Flame then your dead. Plain and simple. Iv trained at swords play for years though.

And if you aren't close enough? Done and done. Or, you'd better be good at sneaking up on people, too.....

Both My Mom and Dad were fencers back in the 50's at Syracuse U. Mom was actually better than Dad and had an offer to join the Olympic Team but because Dad didnt get the same offer so Mom declined. My best friend and I often played with their foils and I quickly learned that I liked guns much better than swords! Im not saying that swords cant be very lethal, just admitting that this now 50 YO+ guy feels much more effective at repelling Zombies or freaks with my 12 gauge Featherlight before I pull out Dads old Samurai or broadsword!

There is no sneaking up on Zombies. All they smell is your BRAINS!

I will confess that I do not understand zombies as well as I should.
I realize that you should shoot them in the head before they eat your brains (or bite you).

But, I was unclear if they could run. Thank gawd for the internet.

I probably will stay with firearms and shoot them from a distance when possible.

But a sword on the back would be uber-mall-ninja. . . . and I don't think that is a good thing.
