But what about zombies?
NRA's National Firearms Museum is opening an exhibit that includes a cased .38 for use against vampires. I personally think you need more stopping power for the undead...
I think as long as the bullets are silver, any cal will do.

Jim - That is my impression though it is based on the Movies and not real life :)

Isn't silver primarily for werewolves?

As much as I have a love/hate relationship with the NRA, I am glad someone is cataloging our history as it relates to the firearm of history.

I hope someone here is wealthy enough to get their hands on Heller's and McDonald's first registered guns.
They will be a piece of history someday.
I hope that someone will be kind enough to donate them to the NRA collection.

John, I found this on the source of all knowledge and truet (the Internet) under ways to kill a vampire:
4 - Silver Bullet
Silver bullets will kill a vampire as well as any other silver object such as a silver dagger or silver stake. Silver is known for its pure qualities and is used to keep away evil spirits, werewolves and other evil beings for centuries.

This same confusion was in the really funny movie "Love at First Bite".
Silver bullets for werewolves, wooden stakes for vampires.
Even Van Helsing can get this wrong.

In Fred Saberhagen's "Holmes-Dracula File", Holmes has Hoerder, the blind gunsmith who made Col Moran's air rifle, make up wooden revolver bullets for himself and Watson. They proved effective at short range.
