At our house, we try to follow the Boy Scouts' motto:
Everyone else will be running away from the zombies. We'll be running/driving towards them.
Everyone else will be slugging it out at the local gun shop for weapons, we'll be safe and secure in our little, mobile fortresses.
Consider this: What does a gun do? It shoots bullets. Does it have an unlimited supply of bullets? No. Even assuming you've got the David Gregory Special magazine which holds 137 bullets, it eventually runs out and you have to reload. A Hummer, on the other hand, is an effectively limitless killing machine, capable of hours of slaughter before it needs to be reloaded with gasoline. All you need is a safe base camp with a good supply of fuel and in just a week or so, you could have the whole town cleaned up. Fuel up, drive around running over the undead, come back home for some delicious sandwiches and sweet tea, lather, rinse, repeat.

There are six of us in the family. Leaving three behind to make sandwiches and defend the camp from the occasional zomboid visitor and assuming 2 sorties per day, that would be 2 x 4 x 3 = 24 hours of Hummer 2 mayhem per day. I would argue that within a week's time, targets would start getting pretty hard to find.
A Hummer 2 vs. street signs. Street signs are made with thick, metal pipes. Zombies are made of rotting flesh. This isn't going to end well for the zombies.
Why run away from the zombies when you can kill them all?
