It's time to give the results of the latest poll. Thank you all, once again, for participating.
This poll was fairly evenly spread out among the answers, each answer receiving at least 1 vote. So here they are:
12 gauge - 00-buck = 25%
Chainsaw = 21%
Sword = 18%
Baseball bat = 14%
12 gauge - slugs = 11%
Pistol of your choice = 7%
.22 Long-rifle (pistol or rifle form) = 4%
I thought the pistols would finish higher than they did. So that was one surprise to me. Chainsaw made a late run, almost making it to the top.
I'll let you all know - I chose the baseball bat for several reasons.
1. Baseball bats make for easy destruction of the brain when giving a full swing.
2. You don't have to worry about running out of ammo.
3. More stopping/knockdown power than any gun could hope to give you.
4. There's no worry of your weapon getting stuck in the zombie as there would be with a chainsaw or sword.
5. It's easy to be mobile with a bat (this is an advantage over the chainsaw, mostly).
6. It's easy to strike while on the move (this is an advantage over any of the guns).
I'd like to hear everyone else's arguments for their weapons of choice, so please feel free to add comments.
A new poll will be up hopefully by the end of the day. Again, thanks to all who participated.
