Defense with the BoomStick

The end of the world is something that may or may not happen, but if it does its good to be prepared. Defense with the BoomStick by Brandon Pilley (Omnicomic's resident zombie expert) will bring you a short tip to survive should the end of the world include zombies. And since we're dealing with zombies, please be aware that some tips may depict some rather gory scenarios. But last I checked zombies aren't looking to have a delightful cup of tea with you. Sorry for the delay there my fellow survivors. Had a little trouble with the generator, wanted to act up on me. Anyway welcome back to my broadcast covering what’s going on in the world today (and mostly since me your old pal Brandon is the only thing you got to listen to). So let's get to it. It seems more reports are coming in that survivors are finally getting some sort of secured locations for you wandering out there in no-man land to head too and be safe in, if even for a little bit. When I hear more about them and what sort of “security” they offer I'll let you fine folks know where to head and some bit about what to expect from them. Although the most important thing to remember is sometimes where you are now or how you have survived thus far might be the better alternative then heading to a so called secured location only to be overrun or risk an infected getting in and turning in the middle of the night on all of you. So far it seems that most of the raider types left out there are slowly dying out, although I heard in the midwest it is still very rough territory to travel through as bandits still run amok. Now for the tip of the week, for that survivor on the go. So far we have discussed what a zombie is, and the best sort of blunt weapons that work the best in your struggle to make it. Today I am going to talk about the different types of pistols and hand guns that can be used and which ones are most effective. For us here in the good old United States guns are everywhere (sorry for all you overseas who happen to be listening to my broadcast, but if you find some of these weapons at least you will know). The most readily available pistol found is the 9mm handgun, used by almost every police force around the globe, while another commonly used one is the .45mm Glock handgun that packs a little more power then the 9mm. Also readily available are you standard six shooters that shoot a variety of ammo sizes, whether it be .22 caliber, .38 caliber or even the awesomely powerful .357 magnum. Hold on a second folks I’ll be right back I hear that generator acting up again, god I want kick the crap out of it. Ok everybody I am back, and figure I can grab a can of some food to eat while broadcasting so let's get back to it. These are your most common found types of handguns mostly in America but like I said worldwide also but in a lot less supply. Generally when you are packing one of these they are your last line of defense as a head shot with a pistol takes considerable practice and skill to accomplish at a great distance. I could go into details regarding the number of other handguns that would work but feel no need as usually neither they nor their ammo are in ready supply. The best handgun to have on you as you either defend your home base or are on the move would either be the 9mm or Glock, as they carry a larger capacity in the clip and are easily reloaded if in a tight jam (the six shooters only carry six bullets in them and take time to reload in certain models). Like I said you want these to be a last resort if you have zombies coming at you as the closer they are the higher success rate of a head shot comes into play. Plus with the ammo used for the 9mm and .45 they have a better success rate of penetrating the skull at a further distance if used in that situation then say the .22 or .38, so I would stick to them for all situations. Also the added benefits of being able to attach silencers to the 9mm or Glock give you the edge in being able to eliminate a zombie without the deafening noise of the shot. But that is another tip altogether about the right choice of weapon to use in a situation that I will leave till next time. So till next week’s broadcast, this is your good buddy Brandon signing off and remember the key rule, and that is to survive no matter what it takes.
