"I'm going to the armory. We're gonna need something with a little bit more kick." Anyone know where I'm going with this? Ok, this is the road I'm taking. First, get one good firearm for the major calibers(9mm or .40, .45, 12 guage, .308, .223, 7.62x39). After that, stock up on mags and ammo. If you get that done and no zombies, start over.
No no no, the Garand would never work as a zombie gun. Why you ask? Simple. Massive trauma to the head is the only way to stop a zombie. If you've got to go room to room taking care of them, or have 15+ coming after you, you need something light, something compact, and something that holds more then 8 rounds. I guess you could always beat the crap out of em with the butt end of the gun, but for that you might as well carry a baseball bat.
It's funny you asked about anti zombie guns, we discuss this subject at the range on occasion, we came up with the ultimate zombie gun, a Mosin M44! The fireball will roast the ones that are close by, the bullet itself would be able to decapitate 4 or 5 in a row with one shot, and if should need it, the bayonette would be a great last ditch weapon, plus you never have to reload a bayonette!
Now you have to keep in mind, this topic was discussed with fellow Mosin enthusiasts
When it comes to zombies you want a variety. You want something that has a lot of ammo and something that packs a punch. (AR or AK, I'd go AR) Then, you need a handgun in case your mag is out of ammo and you have a zombie right in front of you, high cap 9mm. You can't be without a shotgun either!
12 guage 870, loaded with Flame thrower rounds and .00 buck, a .243 for up to 600 yards for blowing their heads off, and 2 .22 pistols for up close, Because .22 bounce around in their head, causing more damage. =)
