Am I wrong?
Yes, and again that's because the vast majority of people don't train to hit the human head, probably over half your rounds are going to be wasted due to misses, defective rounds, miss-fires, shot's that don't penetrate, etc. Also, unless you have an attic to get into that's high enough to escape zombies that has roof access (meaning you're probably talking about just holding up on the roof till it's over with) you'll die of exposure quickly. Humans aren't designed to be exposed to the sun's radiation for extended periods of time, that's why we get sun burns. Imagine that x the number of hours your talking of devoting to this endeavor. You're talking of writing off securing your house against this zombie horde, so they'll be able to break in easily enough so you'll be stuck up there whether or not you like it.
