News Flash: Zombies are Dead

Other than a few bleeding targets (which were too frozen to show much flow) at Media Day on Monday, what you see above is pretty much the extent of SHOT Show zombification this year. It seems the plague has largely passed. Or maybe gun owners have more real, tangible and immediate threats they’re worried about these days. Just a thought.

    The zombies are all in the White House.

  2. avatar Daniel says:

    Thank God for the 2nd amendment: We have successfully slain all zombies. Now we move on to the next problem: Politicians.
    …You know. Without the guns.

  3. avatar Silver says:

    There’s no greater antidote to the fun of pretend fear than the realization that reality contains so much more to be fearful of.

  4. avatar Aharon says:

    Compared to politicians, I really like zombies, vampires, and evil alien creatures that gestate inside the human body.

    1. avatar William says:

      Vampires are WAY too manipulative for my taste. Zombies are honest and strait-forward. (Isn’t “straitforward” a legit word? My spellcheck screamed at the sight of it; but then, it screamed at “spellcheck” also.) Spellcheck is like a sixth-grade English teacher.

      1. avatar Mr aNINNYmouse says:


        ‘strait’ and ‘straight’

        (sorry to sound like I’m correcting grammar/spelling)

        1. avatar William says:

          OOOPS. Good catch. Thanks. My spellcheck DOES alert on some perfectly good words, such as “spellcheck”.

  5. avatar Brian S says:

    I though the whole marketing of zombie crap would be a lot more dangerous to the image of gun owners in america than it’s been so far. Frankly I’m suprised the MSM hasn’t been demonizing it to push their agenda’s. Glad it seems to be passing.

    1. avatar PT77 says:

      +1 I have been waiting on the gun banners to play the zombie card too, they still might.

    2. avatar Swarf says:

      Yeah, the Zombie ammo was especially cringe-worthy.

    3. avatar scottlac says:

      + Another.

      1. avatar Mashashin says:

        I like the zombie ammo everyone locally thought it was gimmicky and never bought it so it went on sale at the beginning of December and I bought a lot of it for cheap and just traded a few cases of the 223 for a lever gun in 44 mag

        1. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

          good trade lol, I actually like the z max, its just critical defense with a green tip instead of the reddish orange. I scored a box of 9mm in FMJ today first I found in 2 weeks that wasnt z max, problem is that the z-max I found was $34 wayyyyy toooo much.

        2. avatar William says:

          Yeah… it’s just marketing. We shouldn’t get overly upset over it.

          Besides, you never know. The zombies might arise after all. You never know WHAT they might be cooking up in Level 4 biolabs.

  6. avatar Mike in NC says:

    Finally! Some GOOD news!

  7. avatar Mr aNINNYmouse says:

    About time.
    Stupid product line.
    It may have introduced new people to guns, but it also introduced a dehumanizing element to gun owner’s responsibility.

    I guess poor Hornady will have to raise the prices of their ammo to make up for the losses….

    1. avatar David W. says:

      Or just put green tipped bullets with their normal bullets.. They were the same thing just more expensive.

      1. avatar Matt in FL says:

        In my experience, I was actually getting the Zombie green ammo for .50 to $1 cheaper per box than the identical-except-for-color Critical Defense that I normally carry. At worst it was on par.

        That was before all the recent BS, of course, but I’m pretty sure I never saw it more expensive than regular.

    2. avatar William says:

      Zombies are, by definition, “dehumanized”. Just sayin’.

  8. avatar tron says:

    Finally. I will admit to buying one box of zombie max ammo for the lulz though

  9. avatar Ralph says:

    What? No more puke green? I’m so sad.

  10. avatar tron says:

    Finally. I will admit to buying one box of zombie max ammo for laughs

    1. avatar Jeff O. says:

      I did too.

      It was on sale as well.

  11. avatar Phil says:

    I feel bad for that guy, sitting all alone.

    1. avatar Yellow Devil says:


  12. avatar TangledThorns says:

    I don’t think the zombie craze is entirely over. Crossbow sales are up and its probably because of Walking Dead’s Daryl character.

    1. avatar William says:

      Without question.

  13. avatar Ctay says:

    As much as I’ve enjoyed zombie flicks, books and such, I’m glad the whole fascination with them in the firearms market is coming to an end. Just makes gun owners look childish IMO. Leave that stuff to the Airsoft/Paintball crowd.

    1. avatar William says:

      Those paintballs are totally useless against zombies. Don’t try it. Zombie ammo, however, will work.

  14. avatar Chuck in IL says:

    Good. It was completely out of control.

  15. avatar Ben says:

    Yeah, I like zombie flicks but I felt like these zombie products trivialized the serious responsibility that gun owners have. Plus, they were kind of tacky.

  16. avatar miforest says:

    I never it this anyway.

  17. avatar Chris Dumm says:

    I was so sick of zombies I could puke. I’m feeling much better now.

  18. avatar ensitu says:

    I hjaz never and will never bend to the Zombie Fad.
