Last month I highlighted what I believe to be the ultimate zombie self-defence handgun - the Taurus Judge. Well, in continuing research into just what I would prefer to arm myself with for the pending zombie apocalypse I was interested to see this S&W alterative to the Judge - The Governor.
Just to recap as to why I think these type of hybrid shotgun/bullet revolvers are preferable for the close range disposal of the undead, the Governor picture above illustrates that it can use three different sorts of ammunition. Not only can this hand cannon use the mighty Colt .45 round (and .45 APC) but it can also fire the devastating .410 shotgun shells (for more information see my previous post on the Taurus).
I have to say I slightly prefer the understated dark and moody looks of the Smith and Wesson offering, but either revolver would offer peace of mind if facing a group of shambling horrors. Additionally, and perhaps importantly, the Governor provides one additional chamber than the Taurus, giving you six shots rather than just five.
What I hope to do, eventually, is compile these separate posts into one large 'undead armoury' post - so next I will be looking into what I think would be the ideal primary zombie killing weapon.
