It just so happens my friends and I were having a dispute the other day about what type of gun Rick Grimes uses to fight off the undead on The Walking Dead. Coincidentally, I was contacted by our friends over at LuckyGunner.com who put together this fantastic infographic and article detailing Rick’s weapon of choice for the Zombie Apocalypse.
The article addresses questions like, “Why would Rick use a gun that has such a low ammo capacity?” or “How does Rick continue to effectively reload his weapon after losing his hand in Issue #28?” Have you ever tried to open a jar of peanut butter with one hand? GOOD LUCK. Now imagine trying to reload a gun with only your nub as a horde of flesh-eating walkers are hot on your heels…
Fortunately for the show, Rick’s missing hand hasn’t needed to be addressed…yet. But it doesn’t appear the show will be moving in that direction regardless. I can see it now – Season 4, Episode 1 entitled “Peanut Butter Problems.” Maybe the show will finally get an Emmy nod? Nah, probably not. But either way, check out the infographic below for more information about Rick’s .357 Magnum Colt Python.
