AMC: “Q: When we first spoke to you, way in back in 2010, you listed the rifle as your favorite post-apocalyptic weapon. Is that still your pick, or has your preferences changed since then?”
I’m a big fan of the show and I like the turn we took in season five. Our beloved crew has become a bit feral. Adjusting to a civil society is probably not something they should do, yet. That’s not because of the walkers, it’s because of the living. The living are the dangerous element in the new, dead, world.
That said. You always have to be ready to run into a pack of walkers. I think I’d keep a nice aluminum baseball bat with me at all times. They’re light and they can do damage without making a lot of noise. A samurai sword is a great choice, but I’d imagine they’re a bit difficult to come by. Any sporting goods store should be a great place to find a few baseball bats. Oh, and get the cheaper aluminum versions. I’m not sure modern carbon fiber bats could handle the punishment.
