Will You Survive? Hornady to Host Zombie-Themed Shooting Competition (VIDEO)

Hornady will be hosting a zombie-slaying shooting event for lucky gun owners near Grand Island, Nebraska.

After all, who doesn’t love shooting zombies? It sure beats shooting clay pigeons — unless maybe it’s zombie pigeons. 

The event will take place between June 29 and July 1, and it will feature a whole range of zombie-themed rifle, shotgun, and handgun events. Up to 350 contestants will be able to sign up for a chance to win the VIZ (Very Important Zombieslayer) award. Each contestant will automatically win a zombie bug-out bag, a commemorative T-shirt, a box of ammo, and a festering bite mark laden with a deadly strain of zombie virus.

Contestants will be showing off their 3-gun skills for a chance at a pool of $110,00 worth of prizes and the opportunity to repopulate post-apocalyptic Earth. 

And don’t think that it will just be a normal gun competition, but with targets bearing zombie printouts and red paint. Hornady has developed “reactive zombie targets developed specifically for this match.” Altogether it sounds like pure, unadulterated fun.
