I'm an Ordained Non-Denominational Christian Minister, Ex-U.S. Army Reserve Medical Specialist, Ex-Security Officer and Ex-Auxiliary Police Officer, Former Emergency Medical Technician, Former Apprentice Gunsmith specializing in Black Powder/Muzzle-loading weapons. The shop I used to work for supplied a few of the weapons in Dances with Wolves through Dave Shaw, our Specialty dealer. I'm medically retired/disabled, and I enjoy shooting and talking about weapons and I enjoy good movies.
I am a blogger and a member of THERPF <dot> COM a prop replica forum. Over there we go a little nutty about being able to identify and recreate props from movies as screen accurate as possible. So we have threads about movies and the firearms, holsters costumes etc used in them. We try to make our stuff as screen accurate as possible to the point of being rather a**l about it. Members have gotten the Bluray copies of movies and zoomed in to count the number of stitches on a costume and the number of rivets on a prop.
I don't change top pages, however I will put what info I have with any links to the info in the discussion section of any page I work on.
