You would think that a .22 would be one of the more common guns and easiest to supply/carry ammo. Instead they are walking around armed like they are in a video game.
Dale was one of the few with a bolt action or hunting gun...that does not seem right either.
Maybe the .22lr shortage has something to do with it
It is a TV show. Its not that exciting to have a horde of zombies approaching and the hero whipping out a 10/22 and having that light "phew, phew, phew" sound and tiny .22lr casings flying out in dramatic slow mo. However at some point would you give the kids a .22, Crazy Lizzie and he sister has centerfire pistols.
The other thing that bugs me is Daryl and his crossbow. I get it for the sneaking around and taking out lone zombie stuff, but come on your fighting an army of people attacking the prison with a tank and assault rifles and you are still running around shooting people with a crossbow. Also when he got away he still has 4 bolts, he takes out a few zombies, even stabs one in the head with a bolt, yet those 4 bolts will never get lost or broken.

So far with the exceptional lack of 10/22s and 60s, the guns aren't too crazy. The Gov was is a special position to be able to aquire any esoteric gun to enter woodberry (sp?) so his AUG doesn't bother me to much. An occasional MP5 from some ex swat team or converted semi's are ok. The pervasive use of M16/M4s is quite accurate. Pristine AKs for low level hinchmen is odd. I would expect to see many more shotguns, both tactical and exhunting models, being used. Oh well it's Hollywood crazy gun misperception at work.
I agree, not only would finding a Class 3 Uzi in Georgia during a ZPAW be rare, but its not that great of a gun to use for zombies. What are you going to go for a head shot shooting from the hip with a short barreled, Stock folded UZI. The majority of guns should be scavenged police and military stuff like M4 & M9, and MP5, glocks and other service pistols mixed with typical higher end civilian gun stuff like ARs, AKs and pistols. At first playing the game of battlefield pickup during a ZPAW I guess you get what you get, but at this point I would think everyone would have a decent and "zombie practical" gun.
