so heres my final rant for the seasons so far.

I'm very annoyed with several key pieces that would take this show from being good to being great. in no particular order this is the list of things that should change.

the 50 to 100 yard pistol head shots.

the never recoiling firearms. almost all have done this minus a scene here or there.

the infinite ammo that hershal seemed to have and then every shot was a head shot. even while moving from target to target.

being able to hit the zombies accuratly while riding in a bouncy vehicle.

the fact that they have not picked up any .22's, ar-15/m-16 rifles, ammo and mre's. i mean come on. they have gone to the bar, the cdc,the pharmacy. and yet no one has thought to raid the gun store? im sure they would have run across a couple as they have gone through at least 3 cities/towns. and there were even a couple military areas.

the fact they tortured randall instead of trying to heal him and keep him in there group.

at the highway why dont they pick a nice truck and jeep both 4x4. darryl can keep his bike though.

i guess im saying i wish they would make it slightly more realistic. its still fun to watch, but i always see the mistakes and it bugs me. okay im done because at the moment i cant think of anything else.

Thats the part that strikes me about the TV show.

That's one of the first things they do in the graphic novels.

I've been wondering why also. Ya think they be hitting up the cop shops and going through the armory with rick and shane being cops.

All in all it's a great show!! You guys also gotta remember its a TV Show, Not real life. There doing the best they can to make a show about something that has never really happened. So we all know about the limited edition guns wether it be handguns, shotguns or rifles that have NO RECOIL and UNLIMITED AMMO and can shoot over 5000yds away to kill your target or zombie or whatever there shooting at! It is funny though because I find myself actually looking at the firearms to see what they are and then I'll count how many shots they take and you see a basic 12g home defense shotgun which should only be 4 to 6 shots sometimes 8 if you have the mossberg 930 tactical or the maverick 88 that do hold 8 and I know I'm probably forgetting some others but you count and it's like wtf 20 shots from a 12g without reloading or even the handguns, like 20 or 30 rounds with no reload. Now on the show I know Shane was using a Glock and I could see him shooting 20 to 30 rounds if I seen a high Cap mag in the gun which wouldn't be hard to miss seeing that it would stick out about 8 inches from the gun but he doesn't! But I like the show and it gives me something to watch on my lazy Sunday's LOL!

if it was the best they can there would not be any "special" weapons, and common sense would say the military/sporting stores would be a great place for all supplies. food, ammo, guns, camp/survival gear.. just saying i wish it was better. but i still like it....

on a side note.. why dont they hop on a boat? ya know house boats, yachtes, tankers. how many zombies are swimmers? they could make supply trips to shore and then back out to the middle of a big lake or the ocean.

Or better yet a large but smallish island like bald head of our coast . Spend about a week clearing the walkers from the 2.2 billion dollar homes and start living the life . Food = catching fish everyday / water = desalinization unit use salt water / supplies = southport is very short boat ride over the cape fear river
Guns = how many bases do we have hers in nc ? about as many as we do subways and foodlions .
Thats what I have always told the wife if zombies or the like destroy the world . best place to go is a large sailboat maybe an aircraft carrier or an island .
That would be cool to get a carrier and make port to pick up more survivors like a boss and if they get annoying like andrea just launch them off with the catapult which would also double as entertainment . Pick up a batch of walkers , launch them and shoot them when they get airborn , like shooting clays . PULL !

A mode of transportation / home powered by a reactor for at least the next 20years would be the smart way to go
You have shelter - safety - power - man toys -and ocean view and an almost never ending power source - fresh water - toilets - communications ... everything . Of course you would need minor stuff like striking paper and a place to grow pot . hell the world is over why not get stoned every single day? Get stoned and play with the A-10's and the SAMs . Beer might be a issue though as well as ammo . Do they have a reloading station on board ? If not then it may be time to raid rbcs factory or midway warehouse .... then the nra museum , they have a thompson serial number 1 there I have had my eyes on ,trying to get the funds up right now though .
