Bow and arrow is the new gun
Norman Reedus, who plays crossbow-wielding zombie killer Norman Reedus in AMC’s The Walking Dead, says “Any putz can pull a trigger. But you have to have some skill and a meditative state to aim and hit the target with a bow.”
A big added bonus -- crossbows are handy. "I have used it to thwack people over the head, I have used it to prop up a shotgun, I am always finding new ways to use it," he says.
