Ok, I know how many "what gun for zombies" threads there are. So, I did a search for this just to make sure I'm not over doing this, and I didn't find much. In honor of the dragon special coming on ( I think Animal Planet ) this sunday at 8 (not sure which time zone, check your listings) which gun(s) for dragons? I was looking at cdnns catalog, and for a bolt I found a Sako in 30-338 Weatherby. I've always wanted a BAR, and a FAL, so those go on the list also. For a side arm, I think its a toss up between .45 and .357 sig., big hole or penetration through scales. I also think a 10 gauge with good size shot will work well for damaging the wings, to bring the dragon down, where its easier to deal with. Mounted guns will take longer to get out to the people, so small arms would be the first line of defense, till the good stuff gets spread around. Well, what do you think?

Dave, you've got the right idea, but you need better protection from the dragon's flames for your gun crew. I suggest the ZSU-23-4:

If you want longer range, there's the ZSU-57-2:

Self-propulsion allows your crew to either chase the dragon, or get the heck out of Dodge, depending on how many dragons are involved. :D

The CIWS is neat but I like the mobility idea, how about the M163?

Longbow with Hobbit reconnaissance to determine chinks in the dragon's armor.

It's all about shot placement. ;)
