16. The Cast Trains With SWAT
The cast doesn’t just look like they can shoot their weapons; they actually can shoot their weapons. Not only do they regularly go to shooting ranges, they also train with SWAT and military experts to learn how to shoot the variety of weapons on the show. By working with professionals, they learn the difference between shooting a hand gun, a rifle and a machine gun. This way they can properly act like they are shooting the particular firearm on the show.
On days when they shoot large scale fight scenes, like the showdown with The Governor, a gun trainer will come to the set to make sure everything goes smoothly and looks as accurate as possible. So, while the actors are acting, they’ve also learned about as much as a civilian can learn about firing these weapons. Perhaps that’s why Rick looks so damn comfortable with his gun in his hand.
