Thats not to mention that he was in an EFFING TANK, and didnt bother to see if it ran. I mean c'mon a hoard of zombies outside, 3+ inches of armor between you and them, its worth a looksie around. Even if it didnt run all the m240s and m-16s they passed up on the way in to the cdc is enough to make one question there sanity Those have always killed me, I mean what human wouldnt try and take advantage of that?

I have secertly always wanted one of the volvo armored vehices to turn into a camper. It would kill on gasbut who else would have one.

Tanks have 50 caliber machine guns on them also!!! A big 50 would mow down zombies like no tomorrow. It would be handy for taking over the governor's little town also.

I doubt it would have had enough energy to pop his head like a grape [But the bones inside would be a mess from the overpressure of that hot round coming through].

Ohio ed in season two they had shown daryle making bolts for his crossbow, aleast presumably thats what he was doin by de-barking sticks and splitting bird feathers. He showed up with wooden bolts later on, signaling to me that had to be what he was doing. I didnt notice this season if he had carbon or allumnum bolts, but he could have found them scavenging in rural georgia is its anything like here, There are prolly 5 guys on my street that have a crossbow and a dozen or so bolts
Would i want a crossbow in that situation yes and no- I wouldnt go room to room with it, but it could be highly useful in other situations
Crossbows are becoming increasingly common in Michigan because they can now be used by anyone during bow season. So I'm thinking Daryl's choice of weapon requires skill and patience but is very effective. He can make bolts, retrieve them, they're much more silent than a gunshot, and I think I've seen him go all Legolas and stab some walkers with bolt in hand.

My .22 weighs like 7lbs max and everything else I listed is inconsequential, so I think I'd reasonably be able to carry those weapons and the required ammo for long period of time without sacrificing free movement.

I have a .30-30 that's dead accurate and also fairly light, so between the .22 and that one it's a toss up really. I'd carry both if I could just to give me more options in regards to scavenged ammo.
I'd take a .22 rifle and a .22 pistol. They're light, easy to shoot, ammo is light and abundant. I'd also want a GLOCK 9mm since 9mm rounds are also common and GLOCKs are some of the most reliable handguns around. I'd carry a big knife and machete (like what they use to cut through bamboo) and if I had could manage to carry an AK-47, that'd be my assault weapon of choice.

It's just too bad real life isn't like Fallout where you only have to worry about weight rather than space. Or make friends with a docile Mutant and make him carry all your stuff (including a couple of miniguns).

Avoiding the use of the tank was likely due to production costs. A tank, cruising the streets of Atlanta, with actors in its proximity? The insurance for that scene would be insane. Besides, starting and driving a tank has a bit of a learning curve attached.

Not to mention the series would be over already

Honestly, I'm waiting for someone to find out that North America is the only place with zombies and then North Korea get's to finally nuke the hell out of the US.

Well with the break in the show till February, I thought I would check netflix and see if the movie that really put zombies on the map was listed.
Night of the living dead isn't on netflix!! I've seen the show many times but it's a classic horror flick and always fun to watch. It is what makes the step away from reality a lot smaller for the walking dead. We've been use to zombies since '68!
It's on comcast's on demand list, but I don't want to pay $3 for a 44 year old movie.

Any details on how they actually caught Daryl? Did I miss that? Seems like he's a guy who wouldn't be caught too easily.
