I watched season two last episode and season 1 first episode tonight...
I WANT that old farmers shotgun, because whatever type of recoil reduction system he had in it while firing (apparently) 00buck, worked like pure movie magic, it had the recoil of an airgun, and the muzzle blast of a cigar. That goes for ALL weapons fired in a show that PRIDES itself on graphic detail.
Also, none of them EVER miss...offhand, moving, from a vehicle, they all score the necessary brain stem hits every time, first shot...
Yes, I know it is only television......
I am with you on the ridiculous accuracy (edit: and recoil), but keep in mind that on-set simulated weapons are very
dangerous, and the weak simulated muzzle blast is really the best that can be done when they are pointed in the direction of people.
