FANS of The Walking Dead have spotted a major plot hole to do with Rick Grimes’ gun back in the very first episode.
With AMC’s post-apocalyptic zombie drama season 10 finale on hold due to coronavirus, viewers have been re-watching earlier series.
And one noticed a major inconsistency during the first few minutes of the very first episode, as sheriff Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) was involved in a shootout while the zombie outbreak unfolded.
After Rick ordered colleague and best friend Shane (Jon Bernthal) to get his weapon ready, it was pointed out that there was an issue with one of the guns.
Posting on the site moviemistakes the fan wrote: “Ten minutes into the episode, where they’re setting up their police-blockade, a cop makes a remark about being in some TV show when Rick Grimes replies with: ‘Make sure you’ve got a round in the chamber and your safety off’.
“Next we see the first cop checking his gun (a Glock) for a round in the chamber and we see him flicking his thumb across the gun’s slide catch: not a safety-lever.

WORD OF WARNING
The Walking Dead fans convinced they’ve solved Rick’s message to Michonne
“Glocks don’t have an external safety, so the cop cannot flick a safety-lever like in the episode.”
There appears to be another continuity error during season 3.
During Rick’s search for more weapons alongside his son, Carl (Chandler Riggs), and Michonne (Danai Gurira), their car was seen driving around a capsized caravan.
But one fan explained that while the car could be seen driving around the left side of the caravan, the car was then spotted around the right side of the vehicle in a subsequent shot.
The fan wrote: “When Rick, Carl, and Michonne are leaving King County (Rick’s home), they must travel around a wreck involving two cars and an overturned RV.
“They drive along one side of the road. When the camera angle changes, they are on the opposite side of the road.”
Rick Grimes is set to return to The Walking Dead franchise with his own movie trilogy starting next year.
He left the drama after being carries off in a helicopter, presumed to belong to The Commonwealth.
The Walking Dead season 10 is expected to conclude in 2020 on AMC.
