Because in all the zombie movies, books the infection is either airborne, blood born or through bites, you may have a super bulldozer but what good is that when you become a zombie trying to get at it? i would also want night vision goggles for standing guard at night.
Also one thing you need to remember is there will be no power, so there will be no means of production for anything, food will spoil. So for weapons you will need a easy to clean standard rifle (9mm or 5.56) no fancy .50 rifles (well they wouldn't last long)
Or just easy to get i.e. blunt heavy objects. Also no real fuel no going to a gas station so you would need a diesel truck to run something like biodiesel for just strait cooking oil.
Final thing people are talking about frag grenades. You wouldn't want a zombie with no legs (they were cut off by your grenade) to be crawling through a field of tall grass and bite you in the ankle and end your day, you want a zombie to be standing up so you can see it.
Amen to the night vision goggles. I may have said that I plan to go to the police station to get guns, bullet proof vests, armoured vehicles, ect. . . . but I would also get all the SWAT gear (Like the radio's and night vision goggles) because it is just a good idea.
Also, If my mum says yes, I can get my gun license!
(In NZ, at 16, you're allowed to get your gun license)
About the frag grenades: Use C4 or TNT (if possible) because it's an fiery explosion rather than an explosion of shrapnel (from what I gather) (also, the firefox dictionary said "frag" was wrong, it offered "fag" as the correct spelling

Maybe National Guard/local paramilitary force, but nothing greater than that, and plan for worst case, such as no organized aid.
Just imagine: Zombies getting into a nuclear missal silo . . . We are all screwed!
Also, I ain't joining up with some some stupid fuckin' "gangstaz" to keep myself alive! They can go screw each other and get bitten by topless zombie girls!
. . . I want a REAL
paramilitary group (like the NSF . . . and yes SexyTalon, I noticed your Deus Ex reference, good one
Also, I would set up a group like the survivors in Half-Life 2 . . . with the circled lambada symbols and everything!
There is a replica Tommy gun for sale in a shop in New Plymouth (Its the closest city) and I wonder how good it would be as a zombie killing weapon. Any suggestions? Any knowledge? And yes, I have read the wikipedia article.
