A major stock holder in the stack exchange group is a survivalist. And he is fearfull of a zombie outbreak and apocalipse. He has a lot of money to spare. He intends to store a certain ammount of food, water and weapons to survive thru the zombie outbreak. He will store dehydrated food for as much as 2 years worth of food. He has a large water storage system capable of recycling water via reverse osmosis. Other basic items are already stored. He will invite ten of his friends (males and females) to stay and fight besides him.
What weapons should they carry ? Both cold metal and gun type weapons, divided into four categories: Close combat range (0 meters), short range (3m to 15m), medium range (15m to 100m) and long range (100m to 1km) should be carried. How many of each ? How to distribute this into the squad ?
He wants to build armour. But not a medieval one. He wants one designed specifically to survive the zombie outbreak. The armour might use metals, carbon fiber, kevlar, situational awareness raising eletronic items etc. Radar etc, like Ironman (without flying). What can he build with todays tech ?
There is no money limit, he is one of the owners of stack exchange or similar popular sites.

Zombies are of the virus disease type. Zombies are still alive but their reasoning is damaged by the virus. Virus is a mutation of the rabies virus that spreads like flu virus. Their saliva is the usual transmission method. Incubation time is quick, one or two days and the person is turned into a zombie. The disease attacks the control of emotions and makes a person irrationally violent. Already turned zombies release a strong odour that discourage other zombies from attacking them. Zombies do not eat brains or flesh, they are just hyper-violent, like a rabid dog. Zombies attack via punchs, kicks, bites etc. Biting zombies transmit the virus to other persons bloodstream directly. Assume he started preparing two years before the outbreak. Animals do not get the disease. Zombies are plain simple humans with a brain virus. They do eat, but they dont have a sense of taste, so anything that is food can be eaten by them. Any kind of human fluid is able to transmit the disease. This is a zombie killing squad, prepared from before the outbreak to do its job. A professional zombie killing squad without money limits. They must search cities to save people trapped inside buildings. They are prepared for something that the military and the state is not prepared.
