TACTICAL DEFENSE Spiked Club Vs Steel Mace

Tactical-Defense Wooden Spiked Club VS Steel Mace.

 

In our first TACTICAL DEFENSE post on our wordpress site, we bring a post originally made on facebook by ZSA about wooden spiked clubs and iron steel maces. A favorite weapon in medieval wars and battles.

Not really one vs the other, but whatever you can get your hands on. Personally I chose the steel mace.

The Spiked Club and the Iron Mace as far as our people at ZSA can see, are two of the best weapons against Zombies for close combat operations. It is sturdy, long, has spikes and is tough rigid! Doesnt jam, doesnt need amo, doesnt need cleaning or crack like a knife or machette could after repeated whacking against zombie bones and flesh. Just as medieval soldiers used them. They are awesome looking and with some good training could save your life and the life of your family when you are attacked by the walking dead !

Just remember we are dealing with flesh eating zombies, if its training you need get it now, these are not weapons found easily, but I have seen them at weapons and gun shows in the United States.   Hitting a zombie isnt hitting a tree, bones are smaller and more fragile in zombies then even in living humans, getting stuck is less of a probability so we dont think the mace or club would get stuck in the bones because if they do, then you will have a small stressful time removing it!  A baseball bat is also excellent and easier to find and keep without it scratching peoples skins of by error, basically a baseball bat is a spiked club without the spikes!  But when there are zombies marching towards you would you rather have a baseball bat or a spiked club? Think well why were they so popular in medieval war times? And their use was against people, they have been tested in battle for centuries!

Remember anything in close combat with Zombies could be counter productive. It is best to use a shooting rifle of some kind when possible. What we are saying is when you have no choice but to get into close physical combat what weapon are you going to want? Do you think any other weapon around is better for smashing a zombies head? You need enough strike power to avoid having to keep whacking!   Again we are talking about CLOSE COMBAT whatever you do, you can get hit with blood and brains even if you use a bat,  hammer or even a pencil! You would do best getting something that will avoid you getting too close.

You need to wear protective clothing, and masks whenever possible, Hazmat suits or similiar, be creative even a garbage bag will do when nothing else is available. In our tactical protection series we will have a Hazmat vs NBC suit article.

Also in a future post continuing the hand to hand human vs zombie battle weapons, will be hammers vs , the Axe vs SOG hatchet, the Spear vs Sword (yes you heard right) aswell as other defense weapons that will save you from getting bit by the UNDEAD!

Building your spiked club and solid steel mace.

Making a Wooden Spiked Club and Steel Mace the Post Zpoc Way.

By Christopher Pape

Zombie Safe Area’s Hand To Hand Weapons Specialist

As far as the spiked club and mace go, they can be made many ways. The medieval way is fairly easy if you have basic forge skills. Or the post Zompoc way……

The Post Zpoc Way

Ok the simplest way to make a spiked club would be to use a simple baseball bat or round piece of hardwood like oak or redwood. The spikes are gunna be fairly easy to obtain. I used Spikes from a dog collar. They are tough but not too long to get stuck in bone . I basically used an elongated bolt that fits the spike. I also cut off the head if the bolt to attach another spike on the other side. They will tighten themselves in. Repeat as many times you want with out compromising the woods strength. TA-DA! Super easy and the chrome looks awesome too.

The Solid steel mace however is a bit tougher. If you have access to a welder life got much easier. Oxy/acetylene torch welders are great if you have a guy that knows how to use them. I used a jr sized shot put. It weighs 4lbs and is easy to weld. Once again tog collar spikes worked the best for me. I welded the spikes onto the ball and then welded an old natural gas pipe to it.

The Zombie Virus

By Monstrous.com

In modern films, zombies are often depicted as being created by an infectious virus, which passes on via bites and contact with fluids.

Harvard psychiatrist Steven Schlozman has termed the condition of zombies ‘Ataxic Neurodegenerative Satiety Deficiency Syndrome’ in a hoax article.

Viruses are microscopic infectious agents that come in many shapes and sizes. Unfortunately viruses do not contain the necessary components needed to carry out the basic chemical reactions required for life.

Because they can’t live on their own they infect host cells of other organisms to help them survive and reproduce. Like a parasite, viruses need to find ways to spread to new host cells in order to continue living. They have discovered many different ways to spread to new host organisms. The influenza virus transmits through a sneeze or a cough. Many have the ability to change the DNA of the host cell. Some viruses have even found ways to change the behavior of the host organisms.

A few popular candidates include Swine flu, E.Coli 0157, Solanum, Botulism, Dengue Fever, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, SARS, Rabies, Hantavirus, Anthrax, Plague, Cholera, HIV, Ebola, Marburg virus, Lhasa virus, Sarin, and VX.

 

The case of Rabies

Rabies is a form of encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) that can make humans aggressive and by attacking the central nervous system, it can make the body send out extra impulses to the muscles increasing their strength, which could explain why zombies are so strong and why the have bad coordination.

Rabies is caused by an RNA virus belonging to the order Mononegavirales. All warm-blooded animals, including humans, are susceptible. When a wild animal is bitten by a rabid animal the virus enters the bloodstream, eventually spreading to the spinal cord and brain. Clinical signs of rabies are quite variable, with a change in behavior being one of them more consistent findings.

This behavior change can be as subtle as apprehension, or as extreme as biting in a normally friendly dog. Dogs might chew at the site they were bitten when they became infected, and can even maim themselves. As the disease progresses dogs may show increased irritability, viciousness, excitability, and eating unusual objects, like wood. These dogs may hide in dark or quiet places, and will bite when provoked. Central nervous system signs like seizures will exhibit, and there may be paralysis prior to death. A phase of the disease causes paralysis of the muscles in the throat. This leads to excessive drooling and choking sounds due to an inability to swallow.

Could a form of rabies be a future zombie virus? Viral warfare is a weapon that a few countries have already invested in. In 1918 the infamous influenza virus was successful recreated in a lab.

 

Solanum

Solanum is a fictional virus in Max Brook’s Zombie Survival guide. Solanum works by travelling through the bloodstream, from the initial point of entry to the brain. Through mean not yet fully understood, the virus uses the cells of the frontal lobe for replication, destroying them in the process. During this period, all bodily functions cease. By stopping the heart, the infected subject is rendered “dead.”

The brain, however, remains alive but dormant, while the virus mutates its cells into a completely new organ. The most critical trait of this new organ is its independence from oxygen. By removing the need for this all-important resource, the undead brain can utilize, but is in no way dependent upon, the complex support mechanism of the human body. Once mutation is complete, this new organ reanimates the body into a form that bears little resemblance (physiologically speaking) to the original corpse. Some bodily functions remain constant, others operate in a modified capacity, and the remainder shut down completely.

Chemical Plant on Fire in Texas! Z day ALERT!

Chemical Plant on Fire in Texas! Z day ALERT!

A chemical plant in none other than a town with the name of  WAXAHACHIE, TX. Causes black and orange plumes of smoke and huge fireball explosions.  Local residents have been evacuated, school children included. Local fire chief stated he wasnt sure what caused the fire as of yet.  Not a laughing  matter residents in that town, not far from Dallas will no doubt suffer some bad ill effects from such a fire that is hopefully being contained. What we at ZSA fear is that the chemicals in that fire might hurt us all in an unexpected way, or rather just a a frightful reminder of the dangers of these fires, that could one day affect the Z-Apocalypse! So far no injuries have been reported!

Zombie defense experts at ZSA and other places, have long feared this kind of fire. It has been known for a while now, that one of the causes of Z-Day may very well be a fallout from a Chemical, Bio, Laser, sound wave experiment or Nuclear test, attack, or similar. If any of the chemicals in that fire contain segments of chemicals that effect the brain stem in humans, we may be creating zombies in living people. We explain this further by saying that the brain stem is accepted by all zombie experts as the part that controls all zombies, even the most primordial zombies, no matter the cause of the zombie strain, it is always the brain stem that is activated and affected. In fact it is probably there that a “sickness” is caused that makes them/us into zombies.  The brain stem (Truncus Encephali in latin) located in the posterior (bottom) of the brain is the main part of the brain that handles traffic for motor and sensual contact. In other words feeling, touch, sensing, pain, the heart, breathing, awareness, consciousness need I say more? It is directly linked to the spinal cord, that goes down our our  back, linking to our entire nervous system! Once a zombie virus controls the brain stem, the person ceases to exist and turns to its primal needs like a wild beast, except we are not wild beasts who have an inborn programming to do or not do somethings, we are intelligent beings (well sort of lol) so when we lose our “awareness” our “consciousness” do we become animals? No, we become zombies! Flesh seeking hungry walking dead! Lets please tell our local politicians to insure safety on all chemical plants, this type of tragedy is unacceptable and the ones who caused this, be the reasons negligence or criminal intent they need to be punished severely!

Today we pray for the residents of that Texas town, this horrible event is simply deplorable. Here is a news report from ABC News Channel 13 News KTRK-TV Houston, TX.

Large fire at chemical plant outside Dallas

Monday, October 03, 2011

AP

WAXAHACHIE, TX — A fire at a chemical plant south of Dallas shot massive plumes of black smoke and bright orange flames into the sky Monday, forcing schoolchildren and residents to evacuate or take cover indoors to avoid possible exposure to dangerous gases.

Flames engulfed a large complex at a Magnablend, Inc., facility in Waxahachie, about 30 miles south of Dallas, where the fast-moving blaze consumed a fire truck at the scene and flames neared railroad tracks alongside the property.

Magnablend spokesman Donald Golden told WFAA-TV that the 25 to 30 employees who were inside a warehouse at the plant evacuated safely when the fire broke out before 11 a.m. Golden said the company manufactures about 200 products, including some that are hazardous when ignited, but there was no immediate word on what caused the blaze.

“I can only speculate on what’s going on inside that building right now,” Golden said of the 100,000-square-foot warehouse.

Waxahachie Fire Department spokeswoman Amy Hollywood said there were no reports of injuries in the area by midafternoon. Officials could not say for sure what was burning.

“It’s the building that’s burning, and there’s chemicals inside, multiple kinds of chemicals,” Hollywood said. “Saying which kind would be speculative.”

Authorities ordered residents closest to the plant to evacuate, while others were advised to stay inside with doors and windows shut.

Jessenia Colin, an assistant general manager at a nearby Hampton Inn and Suites, said hotel staff members were turning off air vents so smoke and chemicals didn’t enter the rooms. As they waited for news and watched the smoke billow, staff covered their mouths to protect against the heavy chemical smell that hung in the air, she said.

“It smells like a whole bunch of chemicals, like wrappers burning,” Colin said. “It’s making everyone’s heads hurt.”

Stephanie Otto said she was preparing her new restaurant for a Tuesday opening about a quarter-mile from the plant when she heard sirens and walked outside to see a “huge plume.” She said she could hear what sounded like gun shots for about 15 minutes, and there was a strong smell of ammonia.

“It was huge,” Otto said. “It looked like an atomic bomb went off.”
