Wouldn't it just be better just to teach them how to kill with any ob<x>ject
I would probably go, but I feel if you know how to fight another human a zombie should be easy. There are already classes that teach you how to use these weapons/tools.
Why use a shovel or hammers when I have a large supply or highly effective rechargable power tools and other weaponry available?
I think you're missing my general point here :)
