I don't need experience to decide that.

A .22LR is more than capable of entering a skull from well beyond 20 feet.

Probably within 75-100 meters will penetrate the skull. Make it 50 meters for your engagement range, since you're firing at a small target (a human head).

You can bring down a deer with a well placed shot at maybe 150 at the furthest, although some people claim up to 300 meters. And a well placed kill shot on a deer requires more penetrative power than it takes to enter the skull of a human.

All you need to do is enter the skull with a modicum of force, physics will do the rest.

Really? I'm going to have to do a bit more reading on the subject then. I've always been told that they are fun guns to play around with in the backyard and stuff, which is where all my experience with them was acquired, but that they were never really strong enough to do a lot of damage.

The rounds you buy for plinking cans in .22 pellet guns are not the same rounds you buy for killing small game in .22 rifles.

The plinking rounds are .22CB. They have no powder, just the primer.

Here's Wiki's illustration for it.

The short one is .22CB. The big one is .22LR. The middle one is .22 Short--an intermediate round for taking out rodents and whatnot.

In that case, I am going to have to go buy some new ammunition. And I am even more pleased with my Zombie exterminating selection.

Shotgun(s) is what I voted on. I have the most experience with that from hunting.

The only real downside of a shotgun is the weight of the ammo.

The relatively short effective range of shot isn't really a problem if you choose your engagement location well. And you can alleviate that by packing slugs or if you find military grade flechettes. But then you also run into weight issues.

But the common gauges of shotguns--12, 20, .410--are just as common as the common rifle cartridges. So, perhaps you can make a wise gamble that you can find ammo easily enough and carry less with you.

I'll pick an AK47, that's what i've been trained with.

Maybe a pistol with high magazine capacity for back up.

i also know how to use a dagger but hand to hand combat with a zombie is a poor choice.
