With the season 3 finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead taking place, lets take a look back on the arsenal of firearms and crossbows used by Rick Grimes and his group of survivors. All three seasons have featured some very cool weapons used in the episodes. For more information on firearms in film and television check out the Internet Movie Firearms Database.

Deputy Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) carries a six-inch barreled Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver as his duty sidearm in the series. He is seen using the revolver prominently in the series premiere “Days Gone Bye” (S1E01). Of note is that when Grimes fires the gun in a very tight, enclosed space (in this case, inside a tank), it actually severely disorients him and hurts his hearing, unlike most movies or shows that have people firing guns indoors or in other enclosed spaces without being fazed. Grimes notably uses the revolver twice in Season 1, wielding it in “Wildfire” (S1E05) and once again fires it as the group flee the CDC in Season 1’s finale “TS-19” (S1E06).
