because not even michonne is crazy enough to trust carl enough to get herself distracted off him, after all the crap he just pulled.

which reminds me, where are the silencers from episode 1 and why aren't carl and rick using theirs?

oh, and daryl has a new crossbow.

You notice Michonne noticed when Carl started to wander off. Lori would have had her normal line "where's Carl?"

They probably haven't been cleaned. Ever. And you get a POI shift when using a suppressor. Also, neither of the guns used as hosts were ever designed as hosts so the sights would haven been obstructed.

i know nothing about those, but they were using them just fine in episode 1, and there were no indications the silencers were new and clean back then either. not saying i miss them though, they looked ridiculous.

A suppressor doesn't clean the same as a gun so while they may have still be viable at the beginning of the season, they could have quickly become to dirty to be effective. Plus, they looked "improvised" so sound reduction was probably limited to begin with. It's possible they got to the point of being ineffective.

There is no way this show has considered the technical aspects of suppressors.

Exactly. Without a shop to service and make more, silencers will have a short lifespan.

I agree with this 100%. Especially since in the last episode Rick said he gave the shop owners their "license" when they brought guns into their businesses. That's not required at all in Georgia. IN FACT, in this state, you don't have to have a Georgia Weapons License to keep a gun in your car or business. They're considered an extension of your residence.

how involving is cleaning it? is it just dusting off the insides or does it require some kind of expertise? i can't imagine hershel not having enough time sitting around to do it if it is the former.

wow. i know shows usually don't research that much about their technicalities, but that's a really big **** up. i was about to say it's excusable since the rick's actor is british, then i remembered the actors don't write the lines.

these silly things is what turned me off the movie "wanted." you can't bend bullet trajectories by flinging your gun. that's simple grade school physics.
