First off, "You have no guns or access to guns" is a totally alien concept for me, as is leaving home for a "shelter", but I have:
aluminum baseball bat
wooden baseball bat
crossbow (actually not as practical as a compound bow, but I already have the crossbow)
bottles of liquor (for molotov cocktails)
lots of knives
in the basement:
hatchets, hammers, assorted tools (don't want to get that close)
leftover construction materials: 2x4s, nails, conduit pipe, bricks, etc (mortar mix & PVC pipe could make some interesting combinations)
torch & propane tanks

"A vigilante is just a man lost in the scramble for his own gratification. He can be destroyed, or locked up. But if you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, and if they can't stop you, then you become something else entirely." Ra's Al Ghul, Batman Begins
"Political opinions are a lot like assholes, just because you have one doesn't mean you need to share it with everyone." Osiris
My French chateu is completely unarmed and altogether unprepared for a zombie invasion, but considering I'm surrounded by French people who when zombiefied would surrender to loudly spoken zombie-esh German (Think "Achtung, BRAAAAAAINS"), I think I'd be ok
These are the ravings of an insane lunatic. Take nothing he/she/it says, does or looks like seriously
Wonderful story with an exciting ending
