I have a simple explanation as to why I approve whole-heartedly of the zombie gun phenomena sweeping the industry. Are you ready for it? Here it comes: Zombies are fun. Fun gets and keeps people interested. Fun sells guns.
Anyone that is really, and I mean seriously, worried about a zombie apocalypse should seek professional help. There are plenty of other real threats out there to fear. But the whole zombie thing, from shooting matches that feature zombie themes, to zombie ammo and accessories, to flashy zombie guns are all just plain fun.
And if it gets people shooting and keeps them shooting I’m all for it.
So, what got me going on this today and not last month when MTM came out with the zombie box or a couple months before when Hornaday came out with zombie ammo or even a couple years ago with the zombie shoots up in St. Cloud, MN?
I don’t know. I saw the new Zombie Annihilator from Yankee Hill and the promise that it will, “…make the undead roll over in their graves… for the last time.”
I love Yankee Hill stuff and it created a top-notch zombie-killing machine.
Features include their own upper and lower receivers, mid-length Todd Jarett Competition Series handguard, an adjustable carbine buttstock and a 30-round magazine all coated with Proveil’s© Reaper-Z hydrographic finish.
The rifle is topped with limited-edition bio-hazard engraved QDS sights. The muzzle is finished with the new Annihilator Flash Hider that eliminates over 99 percent of muzzle flash and adds a new dimension of cool to the end of any firearm because if you look closely at this monster, you will agree you don’t want the business end of that stuck in your forehead.
All these extra features would normally make for a very expensive custom rifle, but suggested retail price of the Zombie Annihilator is $1,550.
So yes, I like the zombie craze. Keep it going. Tell us here at Gun Digest what you like best of all the zombie stuff out there. Have some fun with it. Remember, a lot of what we do is “recreational” shooting.
