Zombies, and the gear to take them out, have become the rage throughout the firearms and shooting accessories industries. While companies like Hornady and LaserLyte have caught some slack for creating products that some people claim as useless or a joke, the companies are only following the market, and producing what sells. If ZombieMax ammo and the multitude of neon green products weren’t selling, they wouldn’t still be out and available.
When zombie products first started to appear on the market, I thought they were interesting, especially the targets. Then, I thought ZombieMax was an awesome marketing campaign by Hornady and that the Outbreak Omega Shoot would be a lot of fun to attend. Later, I was getting a little tired of zombie products, while still liking the concept that has introduced a lot of newcomers to shooting through the fun of these products.
Now there is even a Zombie Survival Course created by a group in New Jersey. I’m not advocating this group; in fact, I know nothing about them beyond the website, but I really like the idea of a training class based around defending against zombies. The skills easily transfer over to the real world, and it makes the course fun for more than just the diehard survivalists. My only complaint is that I didn’t think of it first.
Provide your thoughts on zombies and whether it’s funny or faux pas. Be succinct and polite because the best answer wins a LaserLyte Zombie Pistol Bayonet.
