Why not? When you're aiming for a head wound, a club to the head is as good as a sword.

Plus, I figure that if I'm in melee I have a continual chance of dieing. With a gun, I can be assured of taking down more than one zombie with me.

I'm bitter like that.

You're both zombie food.  You know why?

Because you already made the worst mistake.  To stand and fight.

guns break fast when used like that and death in melee is an honorable death when you know you are bound to die you find the deeper parts of yourself and take shit with you. Plus I start calculating battle but if i get wounded or pissed I'm a berserker (it's inherent in my family).

Better stand and fight for life than run, run out of supplies and get pinned in some in escapable place where I don't know the terain. When you chose the place you have the advantage.

They do not hurt.  They do not stagger.  They do not tire.  They do not fear.  They do not think.

All they do is hunger.  They will never stop.  And as long as they know you exist, they will keep coming.  And you will never kill them all, not with any weapon, especially not your muscles.

Run, run to a place the zombies cannot follow.

To a place in all of our hearts; a place called love. Zombies cannot follow you there. They cannot stand love.

No place is safe only safer.

Muscles my tire but if you live they heal and strengthen if your dead your physical limiters are gone but your muscles can only decay.

Pity the zombies aren't courteous enough to walk away when you're too tired to fight them anymore.

Give me as many .22 rounds as I can carry, and a clear spot to stand, and I will kill a thousand zombies before I fall. If I don't hold, who can?


What traps would be effective against zombies?

Or space. They can't follow you there.

The logistical problems dealing with a private space colony are at least as bad as dealing with the zombies.

I find myself fascinated by the implications of that statement. (sigged unless you ask me not to)

Zombies rot and decay (these ARE the undead ones we're talking about, right?)
Plus they have limited intelligence, so even basic maiming traps would work quite well: bear traps and the like that either hold them or render them incapable of causing harm.  Remember: zombies without limbs aren't a threat!

 Bear traps are one-use. Even with a large one you only get two or three at best and they would just pop the limbs off and keep going, despite the hopping. Better stick with an electrified fence and a renewable power source. Solar might work, but you would be defenseless during cloudy days. And at night, when they feed.

 I still maintain a large ocean platform with greenhouses would be the best solution. If you have a large upper platform around twenty feet above the water level and enough weights in the keel, you could avoid floating zombies altogether. Of course, such top heaviness in storms is not good. Still, better than zombie chow.
