I loves me some hot Glock action and, when the zombies come, I’ll be ready with 17+1 rounds of 9mm hollow points to jack up their day.
The Glock 17 is my personal choice for zombie apocalypse defensive pistol and here are some of the reasons I love it:
1. It’s reliable and low maintenance – when your life depends on a functioning firearm, Glocks have proven themselves to continue operating under the toughest conditions
2. It’s accurate. Out of the box, this is an accurate handgun. The Gen 4 models have a double recoil-reducing spring for easier control. The larger frame of the 17 spreads recoil out over a larger area.

Hey Zombie Apocalypse Preppers…we know you can’t wait to live on a steady diet of Twinkies and bacon, but there’s a catch. While that sounds awesome, it actually has some drawbacks. When we’re all living on a survival diet, we’ll need to be at least a little careful to get adequate nutrients if we’re going to be busting caps in undead heads. Poor nutrition means diminished performance, both mental and physical, and that puts everyone at risk when we’re playing with sharp objects and things that go boom. In particular, quality protein will be hard to come by without hunting or trapping, both of which may be risky in areas of high Zed activity. Oh, you’re a Vegetarian? Yeah, good luck with that…
In this vid, Raymond discusses these issues, and reviews an excellent company, True Nutrition.com! Check them out to make your own personal protein powders, and stock up!

Alright zombie thrivalists, here’s a great knife for field use and for slaying Zs. It’s the Glock 78 Field Knife, by the same guys who brought you one of the most popular handguns in the world.
In case you couldn’t tell, we’re a knifey bunch of bastards who love our edged weapons. I’m also a fan of Glock pistols. Great, solid manufacturing. So I wasn’t disappointed to get my hands on this solidly built blade. At 6.5″ blade length, it’s enough to get to a zombie brain-stem through the ocular cavity. It’s thin design and clip-point make it a great stabbing weapon.
The polymer handle and tool steel blade are darned near indestructible.
The one drawback we found is that the sheath is a bit too secure for a combat weapon. It makes the knife harder to draw than it should be. The sheath is also designed to attach solidly to the belt, but not really designed to strap on to a pack or leg or whatever. This is a pretty minor drawback as, overall, we love this knife.
It feels good in the hand and can easily be put to task for camp and survival duties.
The handle is hollow but plugged. Remove the plug and you can attach to a shaft (hee hee) and you got yourself a spear.

You like knives? Oh, we got some freakin’ knives over here, buddy. In this video, Raymond discusses the SP-10 Marine Raider from Ontario Knife Co. Frankly, it just kicks all sorts of ass. (The knife. The video is just okay.)
The SP-10 is a classic American Bowie style knife, rendered in modern, high impact materials, weighing in at a whopping 1 lb. and 6 oz. , and it comes out of the box sharp enough to knock the head off a zombie like a big ugly champagne cork.

We here at the ZPN are fond of our edged weapons. When the ZSHTF, blades don’t run out of ammo, jam or malfunction. Larger edged tools, like swords and machetes are great for standoff distance. However, everything has a trade off.
For this particular de-zombifier here’s what we liked and what we didn’t like so much:

After the zombie apocalypse, you might worry that a compromised grid or disabled supply line might mean no bacon. Bite your tongue! Real zombie thrivalists (TM) stock a supply!
Yoder’s Canned Bacon is the way to go for your survival food storage needs. A long shelf life combined with a healthy supply of high-protein, high calorie food is a ZA survivor’s dream come true.
I review a can of bacon in the video below and tell you why, amongst other things, it’s a great winter survival food. Also, you can use the grease that it’s packed with to cook other things. Guess what? It tastes awesome!
I also reveal the best way to get it out of the can.

Preparing to survive an onslaught of zombies means firearms training. Going to the range is great, but all shooters should do regular (daily) dry fire training. This builds proper muscle memory and good shooting mechanics.
However, dry fire training with a real gun can be problematic, and lacks some feedback.
Enter the SIRT training pistol from Next Level Training – it’s got frikkin lasers.

Want an edged (bladed) weapon with double the cutting advantage?
The Kris sword/dagger also known as Keris or Kalis, hails from 13th century Southeast Asia from around the Malay Peninsula. Its unique advantage is its blade is double-edged and wavy (flame-bladed), increasing your options for slashing and thrusting attacks and can be used against one or more zombies at a time.
If you’re looking for a medium length melee weapon for your arsenal, this is an awesome option to get before the post office is overrun by zombies.

when planning for your survival during the upcoming zombie apocalypse, it’s important to try to choose items that are multipurpose. The Mag Lite LED 3 D-Cell flashlight is just such an item.
Fairly lightweight yet tough, milled from aircraft aluminum, this flashlight serves double duty as a zombie skull-crushing weapon. In a pinch you might use it to hammer in a tent peg.
