Zombie Targets from ZERO Heavy Industries

Friday, November 4th, 2011

ZERO Heavy Industries isn’t a company that jumped on the “Zombie Bandwagon” to make a couple of quick bucks. On no, they recognized the Zombie menace from the git go and set up an entire company specifically to deal with the newest threat to our way of life.

In addition to full line of carbines, they’ve elected to produce a series of training aids. The Zombie targets are a full 23″ x 35″. Printed on 70 lb offset paper in full color on an earth tone background, using vegetable (soy) based inks. Additionally, there’s ample space to make notes in the margin. Heck, they’ve thought of everything. Even the environment. They print with vegetable (soy) based inks, and these targets are printed completely with wind-power credits. Available in packs of 3,6,12, or 24. Did we mention they are Made in USA!?

Look for an article on their line of Zombie neutralizing carbines soon, here on SSD.

TF Presents – Vehicle Counterambush: Fighting Drill for the Zombiepocalypse

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Training for the worst case scenario…that’s the way to prevail. Not just to survive (which obviously is important) but to win. Rob Pincus is a longtime firearms and tactics trainer many of you might be familiar with. He’s the host of SWAT Magazine TV, a prolific writer, author of both Combat Focus Evolution 2010 and the Training Log Book and one of the busiest instructors we know of. He’s come up with quite a few drills some of our friends use on the range themselves, but this one may be the coolest one yet – and just in the nick of time. Everyone preparing for the impending zompiepocalypse, from Ohio cops to 5.11 Tactical, are undoubtedly relaxing now that Halloween is past. As though somehow the end of the world will happily coincide with a convenient undead-friendly holiday. Complacency kills, whether you’re a cop on the street, the gunner on top of an up-armored or the leader of a zombie eradication team.

Check out this drill, and if your rangemaster has a sense of humor try it yourself. Truth be told, you could probably make the argument that it simulates having to engage from inside a heavy, rioting crowd…but zombies are a more likely threat.

BOLO Report – Zombie Outbreak to Test Ohio First Responders

Monday, October 31st, 2011

The BOLO Report ran a story about how an Ohio county are running a training exercise using an innovative scenario to train first responders.

More than 225 volunteers in Delaware County north of Columbus signed up to dress as zombies Monday in a drill for officials who would deal with real-life situations involving hazardous materials and disaster response. Emergency responders will test their capabilities as they use standard decontamination procedures to “treat” the zombies and make them “human” again during the exercise at Ohio Wesleyan University.

Maybe they should reviewTactical Fanboy’s article before beginning their exercise.

The Zombies Are Coming!

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Zombie Targets - Frans‘Tis the season to hunt zombies. Billed as “The only target that will eat your brains”, many will find these entertaining and a nice diversion from standard targets. In addition to the numerous different versions of zombie figures offered by the manufacturer, Law Enforcement Targets has six different color versions including the dreaded Frans – Nazi Zombie. Each target is 25″ x 35″ and printed on 60 lbs paper. Competition-style target zones are included on the torso and brain but cannot be seen from a distance.

They are available, aptly enough, from www.zombietargets.net. Look for the new Clown Zombie.
