Zombie Targets

Price: $10.99 - $134.99 per box

According to the Hornady website , its Zombie Max ammunition and Z-Max bullets are “proven”—“Have you seen a zombie?” the text says, by way of backing up this claim. The site also has a disclaimer asserting that these live ammunition bullets are only for zombie use—never on human beings, plants, vegetables or minerals.

Zombie Targets

Price: $14.40 per 8 pack paper targets - $99.99 per archery target

Zombie targets are available in the cheaper format of paper as well as in the costlier three-dimensional forms for use with bullets or in the case of the one pictured here, with arrows. Undead Fred by Delta McKenzie Targets is made from self-healing foam to endure numerous arrow wounds from a practicing archer.

Zombie Rifle Axe

Price: $100

The online marketplace Etsy conjures images of precious knitted, felted, and/or quilted products handmade by independent crafters. But the site’s handmade merchandise often runs into the dark, geeky, and gothic end of the spectrum. So it makes perfect sense there’s a corner of Etsy selling handmade zombie-themed items—of course there is.

A subsection of the zombie category includes zombie-fighting weapons. What is a rifle axe, you ask?

Survival Kits

Price: $292.98

The 2012 Zombie Apocalypse Disaster Survival Preparedness Bug Out Bag from Patriot Outfitters is not the only game in town when it comes to pre-packed zombie survival kits, but it just might be the most expensive one.

This kit features a tube tent, waterproof matches, a sheathed fixed blade, a Swiss-style knife, a sharpener, a hatchet, a mess kit, a canteen, a first-aid kit, insect repellant, food rations and energy bars, water purification tablets, a windup flashlight, a five-bulb headlamp, among other survival supplies.

Fitness Training

Price: $3.99 and $7.99 for app, $40 - $125 for class

There are two kinds of people in a zombie apocalypse: the quick and the undead. Therefore, zombie preppers who are more likely to be found sedentary watching horror films than exercising will want step up their game. “The keys to surviving Z-day are simple,” reads the website for the Chicago-based program ZombieFit . “Be able to lift and throw heavy things, run fast and for long distances, be situationally aware and be able to navigate obstacles and urban environments in an efficient manner.” ZombieFit’s parkour workouts promise the answer to these requirements.
