Removing the link to old discussions. I don't want people digging through old discussions and bringing them up again. Sorry StanTheMan. I know you meant well. :) MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 23:18, 15 July 2016 (EDT)
Will be posting some nice pics of screen used guns soon. I saw PhoenixEnt over the weekend and it was nice. Got some great help from PhoenixEnt, Papac from Cinema Weaponry and Mike Tristano and a few others (but I had forgotten how much a hassle it is to set up backgrounds and studio photography of the guns. LOL. best regards, MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 20:45, 27 June 2016 (EDT)
- Awesome! Rather touched you left said remarks for me personally on my page, heh. :D In any event thanks loads, and glad to see ya back! (PS - Hope ya don't mind, but I left a link above to your older discussion page.) StanTheMan (talk) 01:55, 28 June 2016 (EDT)
- Lol, 'old timers'. I find that funny, then I remember it's been a half-dozen years since I first came on here.. Hard to believe. Anyway, there are a good few older folks around, though some only seem to pop in here and there. The images you're bringing in are awesome though, so there's that.

A Few Comments and Questions
Sorry, if I'm writing that the wrong way, you may move it wherever you want (just in case, I've noticed a section named "2016 Discussions"). The first thing I wanted to tell is just a random comment on an old discussion. I was searching for some old pictures in discussions and stumbled upon this one. Just to inform you - not only Violent Shit was not made by a 10 years old (director Andreas Schnaas was 21 during filming), it was professionally released in quite a few countries (including theatrically in native Germany) and even spawned a franchise of four movies and a remake so it may be as eligible as Razor Blade Smile or The Room (also it is closer to the latter, because movie is god-awful and is one of the worst I've seen and I've seen a lot). With that small nit-pick out of the way I wanted to ask three questions. The first one is: could you provide some information about these flamethrowers? I believe it can make a good fictional firearm page, especially since they were also seen handed by several people in Science of the Movies series. Secondly I wanted to ask your opinion on how to improve that for a possible page creation - I believe it could be used in many ways by both established users and newcomers alike and may save a lot of time and nerves for double-checking (made after re-watching two movies nearly in their entirety because I wasn't sure on firearms presence in both of them), useless page creation, etc. The third question is mostly out of curiosity - what is your opinion on using airsoft in independent productions? P.S. I'm from Ukraine and I'm 24 years old. Just in case. --Kloga (talk) 22:39, 15 July 2016 (EDT)
I am a big fan of the movie Virtuosity and was wondering if you had anything from it that you would be interested in selling? Hope to hear from you soon, and thank you for your time sir.
I don't own any weapons or props from Virtuosity. Most of those weapons were either sold to Cinema Weaponry (and ultimately converted back to mundane versions) or sold to Prop Store of London, never to be seen again. But if I see anything around, I'll keep your post in mind. MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 02:23, 4 August 2016 (EDT)
La Femme Nikita
Colt Series 80 with Eagle Seal
First off, let me say that I hope I'm asking this question in the right place/fashion. If I'm not apologies for any inconvenience it cuased.
I had a question about a picture you've uploaded of a Colt 1911A1 Series 80 that's been used multiple times around IMFDb, as is the semi-standard image for a 1911A1 with pearl grips. I'm inquiring about a specific feature on this gun that I have not seen on another firearm like it; the small stamping of what appears to be an American Eagle seal. I haven't seen a gun with a seal like this and was wondering if you knew how or why this gun was stamped with it. Just a curiosity, really.
- I don't know. I'll ask the guy I bought it from. I'll see if he knows. My pics are a combo of MY inventory and the inventory of friends in the business, like Cinema Weaponry, et. al so I don't know the history of all the screen used guns I photograph. Sometimes I photograph 'safe queens' aka unmodified weapons if I don't have a generic model to photograph. MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 15:29, 11 February 2017 (EST)
Hey man, I've got a question. Potential career options have been rolling around in my head, and armorer was one that crossed my mind. But someone told me you have to live in Hollywood to be one of those, which is very far away from where I live. Is this true, or do you have any advice in the field you can share? Thanks.--H3nry8adger1982 (talk) 08:54, 8 August 2017 (EDT)H3nry8adger1982
- Armorer is a dying breed though. Too many indie and low budget filmmakers are just buying their own cheap airsoft guns and putting the flash in later in CGI. Indies and low budget films is where MOST armorers cut their teeth on the job. But the most important point it, are you anywhere near there is film production? If you aren't, then the opportunities to actually do the job aren't there. I wouldn't move to L.A. if you don't have several plans you can put into place. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. FYI, a few months back, I went to the offices of ISS to talk shop and the head of the weapons department told me that he had just seen the 12th young man coming in for a job to be an assistant armorer that day. Yikes. Tons of young folks want to be armorers. But the business model is moving away from that. :( We had such a great time in the 80s and 90s but movies are mostly shooting overseas (thus they use the armorers that are in those countries) and there isn't enough work here. Sure, some guys are working all the time, but that's due to their connections, but even that is a fraction of what it used to be. hope this helps.

- I'm one of those kids who showed up at ISS, and I just wanted to let you know that you'll always have work with me if I make it as a director. Airsoft is fine in a pinch but will never beat that flash and smoke in the air. You guys do great work and I know a lot of people here appreciate it a great deal, I certainly do. --Caldwellb734 (talk) 11:50, 12 August 2017 (EDT)
Day of the Dead 2008
I was just going by what the previous description on the page said --> A Bulgarian Arsenal AR rifle (Actually milled receiver AK47) with black synthetic foregrip, long flash hider and black synthetic Thumbhole Stock is used by Salazar (Nick Cannon) and Nina (AnnaLynne McCord). I still haven't quite perfected my AK-fu yet. Spartan198 (talk) 20:51, 11 January 2018 (EST)
