When the inevitable zombie apocalypse begins and brain-devouring hordes of the living dead start destroying civilization, Orlando will be prepared.
Tucked away in strip mall off Sand Lake Road near International Drive is one of the countrys only shops dedicated to killing the undead: the Zombie Survival store.
Zombies get people excited, said owner Kurt Josephs, who also owns Josephs Liquor & Fine Wines located next door. Its a craze right now.
Stocked with surplus supplies from the U.S. Army and Navy, the Zombie Survival store has almost everything to combat flesh-eating zombies, including gas masks, boots, camouflage shirts, backpacks, MREs, machetes.
Theres also life-sized, three-dimensional zombie targets that actually bleed when hit and official United Sates Zombie Hunting Permits.
And if killing the walking dead isnt your thing, fans of zombies can purchase an array of corpse paraphernalia: Zombie purses, zombie books, zombie caution tape, severed heads, zombie garden gnomes, zombie stickers, blood-spattered table cloths and zombie candy.
If you like zombies, we got zombie stuff for you, Josephs said.
Opened since April, the Zombie Survival store is the brainchild of Josephs, who also operates a costume store at the end of the strip mall. In the past few years, Josephs said he began seeing a rise in the popularity of zombies, singling out AMCs The Walking Dead.
Josephs said he told several friends he wanted to open a store the only other one in the U.S. besides The Zombie Apocalypse Store in Las Vegas to cater exclusively to zombie enthusiasts.
They (his friends) laughed at me, Josephs said.
His wife supported the idea, and so Josephs moved ahead, and spent six months going to trade shows and conventions in search for zombie-themed items for the shop.
Its crazy the stuff they come out with,

Send the zombies back to NYC!
International Drive would be a great place for them to start. One of the worst places on the face of the planet.
“zombie apocalypse begins and brain-devouring hordes of the living dead start destroying civilization”
Yes look what the Moon-bats are doing to California =) Can’t wait for my Zombie Hunting Permit =)
More and more I am starting to suspect that a lot of this zombie foolishness is a proxy for black people, who are now being seen as socially out of control. (Not all, of course, just those that supported Obama. /sarcasm)
If you eliminate the part about eating brains, what do you have left?
When the inevitable black apocalypse begins and hordes of blacks start destroying civilization, Orlando will be prepared...
“Black crime gets people excited”, said the owner, who also owns a Liquor & Fine Wines located next door.
“When the inevitable black apocalypse begins and hordes of blacks start destroying civilization,”
You mean it hasn’t started...yet?
Welcome to the party, pal.
I dont think its racial at all...Around 911 the people realized that the realities of the rest of the world could manifest here...The 1st I ever heard the term was from a bunch of asian children In a very liberal family 10 yrs ago....funny though ,parents were some of the most liberal people I know ...now they are very different....they buy guns..they shoot constantly....apparently they have “evolved already”....lol...I dont know how that came about...they dont listen to me about anything.
3yrs ago....they got mad at me when I suggested they should own a shotgun...
There are real zombies in this world.
I think maybe a better analogy might be those on social welfare programs; a species that extends its numbers and territory with out breading or procreation in the usual sense.
Zombies procreate by biting the living. Social welfare recipients procreate by word of mouth; one looser explains to a prospective looser how they get welfare and get money for nothing. So the prospective looser hearing from the lips of the Mother looser how he can get money for nothing applies for welfare and becomes the a new welfare recipient looser.
The spread of welfare mirrors the Zombie Apocalypse scenario.
Zombies; The parasite class when their welfare is cut off.
As The Walking Dead and other such shows have proven, the best defense against zombies is a .22 rifle with a huge magazine which is easily changed out for another.
One defender could thus carry several thousand rounds of ammunition and administer head shots quickly.
Most of the rest of the necessary stuff could be scavenged from empty houses.
and buying Smart Phones!
It seems to me that a black guy ate the face off of a white guy just a few months ago.... The zombies are here!
and voting democrat.
They reason they crave brains is because they have none themselves.
Ruger 10/22. best semi auto rifle in 22.
I have one and its a blast to shoot. lotsa bells and whistles also.
Zombies on the Planet??? Yes, they are here... they are called Obama supporters (even the non-dead - called LIBERAL Democrats - are brain dead, and the dead always vote Democratic...)
Just got one of these 50-rounders - for starters:
I was just at a garage sale...white father and 2 white teen boys 12-13?.nice people...middle class quiet street..clean appearing.....not party kids...mother gone...they were moving to an //// appt..selling the house......
Clean people...”honest work is hard to find now”...wife gone......
Saw several big caddy suvs with huge rims ...”worthless in snow”...
but those guys had cash..lots of cash....they arnt selling anything...........accept snow...and crystal ....
So I bought a nice leather coat.....just like new...for $10
because another family was “in transition”.
Then 2 steaks because my daughter demanded them...$23
The clean nice honest people...were close to destitute.
The scummy mean dealing people...were happy racing about burning all the gas and cash they could.
A new leather coat...cost half of one good meal.
Yes it is the unfortunate out come of the Obama economy.
Those that continue to believe in individual responsibility will bare the weight of those who believe in social responsibility and are willing to live off the sweat of anothers brow.
Not so much anymore and certainly not for much longer if the Left succeeds.
And thanks to the spineless Old Guard Republicans in Congress I expect they will.
It is EXACTLY that to which I was referring; even a horde of zombies don’t stand a chance against you and, out on the road, you can easily and comfortably carry two or three thousand rounds.
Yes, I’ve heard great things about the 10/22; in fact, it seems to be the best little .22 around.
