10 Crazy Things You'll See at a Zombie Shoot

10 Crazy Things You'll See at a Zombie Shoot

Granted, having a kickass gun collection is a huge part of being a zombie hunter, but there's more to it than just firearms. You have to be prepared in every way. You need to outfit yourself with as much tactical gear as you can fit on yourself, and be ready to ride into battle on whatever vehicle is lying around. At Outbreak Omega 5, hosted by DPMS Panther Arms, we got a look at some of the craziest zombie-killing costumes ranging from totally prepared to just plain outlandish. Here are 10 of our favorite get-ups for stopping the living dead in their tracks.

Kemp Newman from Remington was the unfortunate soul who got to put on this HazMat suit for a photo op the day before the event. Just a minute in that thing was uncomfortable enough; we couldn't imagine anyone running around in this thing all day.
Punk rock meets zombie shooting. Oh sure, we absolutely love the duel ARs and tactical vest, but the zombie-green mohawk and goatee combo really make this get-up.
Not content enough on just their guns, this couple brought their attack dog just in case. We're not sure if we'd be willing to send a K9 unit after zombies, but with a name like "Sarge," we doubt this dog takes any crap from the undead.
This John Deere tractor with a mounted Browning 30-cal Israeli parts kit is a zombie-slaying machine. Not only did this hog have one of our web gurus offering to trade in his Honda, but it also earned a redneck tip o' the cap from our friends at Petersen's Hunting.
This is certainly an interesting strategy: scare the zombies right back. Decked head to toe in tactical gear, we have to commend this shooter for thinking ahead with the bandana; who knows if the zombie virus is airborne? Good thinking.
Since the host facility, Ahlman's, features an Old West motif everywhere you look, it seems appropriate that we'd see a couple cowboy hats among ARs and full-autos. This young lady certainly caught the eye of some of the male shooters in attendance, but from the looks of that rifle, she ain't no damsel in distress.
It wouldn't be a zombie costume gallery without this man right here. Chad Ridler has been coming to Outbreak Omega since the very first event, and his get-ups have always been awesomely over-the-top. This year was no exception; we love the tactical samurai motif -- the katana is certainly a fine melee weapon -- and with a Desert Eagle as his sidearm, we have a feeling it isn't Chad fearing zombies, but zombies fearing Chad.
We're not sure which is more awesome: pink pants or camo kilt? Modern-day tactical, or old-world tradition? Tough call.
Depression-era mobsters seemed to be a popular theme for some of the shooters wandering between ranges, like these two waiting at one of the handgun stations. We're not sure if Al Capone ever ran into any brain-munchers, but there's no doubt a Thompson submachine gun would have made mincemeat of the walking dead.
With this gruesome '50s get-ups, these two ladies, winners of the Best Prepared Group contest, reminded us of that episode of I Love Lucy where Lucy and Ethel had to fight off a horde of zombies at Ricky's club. Wait, you're saying that never happened? Oh, never mind then.

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
