Here at 401AK47.com, we intend to give you the necessary information for planning and surviving the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

401AK47 means to throw away the old sense of the word, investment. We take the obsolete idea of a 401K retirement plan and modernize it with a true sense of preparation and security.

Our name, 401AK47, as it is a symbol of preparation, does not necessarily mean that this particular choice in protection (the AK47), is the optimal go-to in every zombie attack scenario, but a symbol of defense, security and action (one must always consider range, location and comfort level – what weapon, given the previous variables, you feel most comfortable defending yourself and your group with).

You can never be too prepared! Take what you learn here and take the necessary steps to survive. It is because of you, the survivalist, that humanity has any hope of a future that is beyond the zombie uprising.



Top 10 Best Melee Weapons For Killing Zombies

We’ve all imagined ourselves in the zombie apocalypse, surrounded by a horde of zombies. Through this visual tension, however, we remain calm…our katana reflecting the light of the setting sun as we raise the blade in confidence.

As we swing, the heads of the undead soar away in musical unison. Not a single movement is lost to a wasted stride or step.

We are death to the dead. We are artists of survival; our blade is our brush, the land we defend…our canvas.


Ok, back to reality. Though we can’t downplay the importance of mental preparation, most of us will never even pick up a katana, let alone see one in person. Odds are, the skill required to wield such a weapon will forever remain a fantasy.

A prerequisite to using a melee weapon is that the zombie has to be within a dangerously close proximity to you. The mere fact that you’re in need of such a weapon probably means that you’re either going to be zombie food, or at the very least, infected – either of which is not a fate you would, most likely, decidedly partake in.

Now here’s a half-naked warrior girl weilding a couple machetes to help break up this text:

Anyways, choosing the right melee weapon for you, given your comfort level with the weapon and skill level to wield it, is the variable that will be the determining factor in giving you that fighting chance. That said, the list below may not necessarily apply to you, as personal preference should be the first variable considered in your deciding what weapon to wield.

Below are the top 10 best melee weapons for surviving killing zombies and surviving the zombie apocalypse.

Note: We do not recommend that you go into any zombie combat scenario unless absolutely necessary. If an escape route exists, take it. Using your melee weapon should be your last resort.


The information below has been collected by Zombie Slayer Special Forces and hardcore zombie survivalists from across the world.

To identify and familiarize yourself with a variety of long range weapons and more specifically, rifles, one must also become familiar with that weapon’s inherant traits. These traits include weapon characteristics, availability, versatility, ergonomics, and ammunition availability.

Now imagine the zombie apocalypse is upon us, and consider these variables: 1) Those around you are dying and reanimating from MAD flu / zombie flu exposure. 2) Survivalists and every day citizens everywhere are arming themselves in panic. 3) More deaths are occurring due to inexperience with weapons, and so allowing themselves to be in an otherwise avoidable, dangerous situation – wasting valuable ammunition in the process (attempting to shoot beyond their weapon’s distance capacity…or just being a horrible shot).

Survivalists, arm yourselves with thoughtful consideration. Familiarize yourself with versatile weaponsthat have more than one use…and when that moment of action strikes, don’t be scared to pull the trigger!

Below are the top 5 best long range weapons for killing zombies and surviving the zombie apocalypse.

NOTE: Most likely, the concept of sexy zombies started with the movie ‘Zombie Strippers’. Of course, there’s the humor aspect of sexy zombies…then there’s the preparedness angle, though most survivalists wouldn’t consider sexy zombies a tangible threat. So please take the below ‘sexy zombies’ and general concept, for what they are…


Newsflash, men get distracted by sexy women! Studies show that men become slower and less accurate when faced with a beautiful woman – live or dead. We’ve all encountered momentary loss of speech and thought processes when it comes to the opposite sex. Fine specimens of the human form show no mercy in distracting us from our goals…in fact, they soon become them.

Hot (though technically cold and rotting) zombabes are no exception! Research shows that men especially, regard the opposite sex first as potential mates. DO NOT let your guard down. You two may have hit it off had the world not been overrun by zombies and your potential mate-to-be had not become one. You cannot, even for a second, let your mind wander into the realm of possibility. So what if she were a career woman…in uniform or secretarial mini skirt. Her only objective now is to kill you – reclaim your brain before it’s too late!

To train you in this often avoided topic of zombie survival, we at 401AK47 have created and gathered samples. Think of the below as the vile, disgusting, decomposing monsters they are – not what they were.

Train well, and be prepared.
