When the walking dead are chasing after you, who you gonna call?
Anyone can be a zombie slayer in a pinch, but it takes a real crack team of zed commandos to really scrub the flesh-eaters from the face of the Earth.
Enter Brownells‘ Zombie Elimination Crew. At the end of times, these five survivors serve as mankind’s last stand against the zombie scourge that has literally devoured most of the planet.
Armed with products readily available from Brownells, the ZEC is certainly prepared for the zombie apocalypse–even if they don’t want a part in the fight.
Be sure to check out the ZEC’s website, and in the meantime, get to know the crew in the exclusive interviews below.
- Real Name: Matthew
Q: Your bio says you preferred stockpiling equipment instead of using it. Now that you’re actually using it, how easy has the adjustment been?
A: I don’t use much of it; I provide it to the others…and still stockpile supplies as we scavenge for more. It stresses me out to see it used up. It was my safety net.
Q: As a hunter, how does taking out zombies compare to taking any kind of big game?
A: I don’t take out zombies unless it’s my only choice. Mostly, I just run - scared.
Q: Obviously, unlike big game, you can’t eat zombie meat -- or can you?
A: You can’t. You’ll become one of them. The infection will take you over.
Q: Have you tried?
A: What? Are you sick? Gives me the heebie jeebies just thinkin’ about it!
Q: Does constant paranoia have any advantages?
A: Yeah, you run from everything. Keeps you healthy!
Q: What’s the one gear item you can’t go on without?
A: My Doppelduffel bag! It’s a hoarder’s dream! Just when I think I can’t cram more provisions in it, I find more room!
Survival Scenario: You’re in your treestand, and you’re about the call it a day when you hear a rustling from the bushes. You think it might be a big buck, so you stick around, but turns out it’s a zombie. It catches your scent and begins climbing the tree. What do you do?
1. Cut the stand loose and crash it on top of the zombie, and pray you survive the crash.
2. Jump out with your rifle and hope you can turn around and fire before the zombie is munching on your medulla oblongata.
3. Blindly fire straight down and hope you hit the zombie.
4. Wait for the zombie to get in the stand so you can get a clear–albeit quick–shot off.
A: 5. Never get in a treestand! The paranoid always have an out! That – and treestands are way too elevated. I’d be more scared up there than on the ground and able to run from the undead. Besides, who can make decisions that fast?
