Just a few words

I somehow missed the discussion of Olympic 6 naming on my own Discussion page. Anyway, thanks for it. I also feel that I need to thank you for adding Man Bites Dog, one of my favorite movies. So thanks. :) --Kloga (talk) 15:14, 22 November 2013 (EST)

I love cinema in its entirety, but low budget movies usually are really creative. It's because they tarted in low budget that some of the greatest directors of our time: Spielberg, Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson, Robert Rodriguez, etc. are so creative and think outside of the box. I am a low budget independent film-maker myself by the way, filming my first feature film since 2011 and also working on a few other projects. :) Thanks for the link, I think Razor Blade Smile must be interesting... --Kloga (talk) 13:34, 30 November 2013 (EST)

Razor Blade Smile

You want to set images to |thumb|none| instead of |thumb|left|, and fullscreen images are set at 500px, not 600px. You also want to link to weapon pages in the descriptions for each listing.--PistolJunkie 13:59, 20 March 2011 (CDT)

Looks like an interesting low budget movie, by the way, thanks for pointing this out by creating the article. --Kloga (talk) 15:14, 22 November 2013 (EST)

Thanks a lot! This is my first contribution and I was struggling with a few things. All I need to do now is create a few actors pages, add guns from this movie on the weapon pages and finally create one new weapons page. Have mercy on a novice!


Not a problem. Compared to the pages that a lot of new users make, yours was a pretty easy fix. The only problems were in regards to minor, easily rectified formatting issues (most new users wind up making jumbled train-wrecks for pages). The descriptions were pretty good as well, and only needed linking (usually "fixing" new pages means rewriting a bunch of poorly written excuses for sentences). All in all, not a bad start. Hell, MPM08 was able to take care of most of it before I could even hit "Save Changes".

Two other tips, if you're not sure how to format something, just jack the coding from another page (I steal from my own pages all the time). Also, repond to comments on that user's page, and sign your posts (either by typing --~~~~ or by clicking the second-to-last button above the editing window).--PistolJunkie 18:46, 20 March 2011 (CDT)


Again thanks a lot for your constructive comments, I am quite new to this page as far as contributing is concerned but I am eager to learn! I did indeed figure out that 'jacking' is sometimes the most practical way, when constructing this first page I had a page for another movie open on editing mode to see how it should be done.

Sorry for the many times I save a page. I am quite keen to make my first (but certainly not last!) entry a good one so I do check back once in a while to see if I can improve. For next time I will make sure to create and finish a page in one evening so that I don't invite others to spend their precious time on something that I was going to finish the next day...

By the way, is there an easier way to communicate with other users than this? Later in the week I will make the revisions I mentioned above and I may need to ask more experienced members for their advice. If necessary, I don't mind to share an e-mail address. --~~~~

Bruni 92

I added it to the Beretta page. All registered users can edit the page not just me, I changed the protection level because of anonymous users making bad edits, you can edit the page all day long since you are registered.--Predator20 10:55, 26 March 2011 (CDT)

Wow, that's quick! Looks cool, thanks a lot!--PeeWee055 11:01, 26 March 2011 (CDT)

Heaven's Burning

I've started the page for Heaven's Burning because you had uploaded all the pictures a month ago and had not created the page yet. If you want to finish this, please go ahead. --Ben41 13:22, 19 May 2011 (CDT)

That's much appreciated, I was intending to finish right after the upload but the last few weeks have been crazy. Allow me to send you my 'draft' for your convenience this weekend, I spend a good deal of time on this movie and I have all the actors names and maybe a gun or two you may not have spotted.

Cool to see that there's more people who like this movie. It's a personal favourite of mine and it deserves more credit than it got. Anyway, have fun completing the page, hope my comments will be of help. --PeeWee055 14:46, 19 May 2011 (CDT)

District 9 Vektor Z88

First off, I didn't do the District 9 page. And what proof do you have that it's a Vektor Z88 and not just a regular 92FS? Aside from the other Vektor guns present? Excalibur01 06:18, 19 July 2011 (CDT)

You know who helped with the District 9 page? Olly Steel, the armorer of the movie. It's a 92FS.-protoAuthor 19:05, 19 July 2011 (CDT)

I did see Olly Steel's name on the page but I was not aware he was actually involved in such great detail. If that is so, he will have seen this gun's entry and I fully rest my case :-)

By the way, I am relatively new here so could somebody please confirm the following? The best way to communicate with fellow contributors is; (1) add a new topic in the user talk page of another person, (2) wait until that person posts a reply on his talk page below my entry and (3) reply again on that very same talk page?

Thanks for getting back to me, I don't want to be a pain to you guys! --PeeWee055 03:13, 20 July 2011 (CDT)

It depends. Some users will reply on their own talk page, some on yours (so you'll be posting replies to each other on on the other's talk page). I personally prefer the latter since it pops up a notification to tell you when you have a new reply. Evil Tim 03:17, 20 July 2011 (CDT)
No worries, I like to see proactive users where it matters --AdAstra2009 15:06, 20 July 2011 (CDT)

Heaven's Burning

In Australia, the tactical units are not called SWAT, so that's why the names were changed to tactical. Also, it doesn't make sense to use the screenshot of Patrick Dugin wearing a mask for his actor page. If you have a different picture of Dugin without the mask, then please upload and use that for his page. --Ben41 06:16, 27 August 2011 (CDT)


If it's police from South Australia, then the tactical unit would be called STAR (Special Tasks and Rescue). Also, new picture for Matthew Dyktynski‎ should be used. --Ben41

re:weapons overview

I think what you're talking about is redirects. What you have to do is create new page called Bruni 92 or whatever the case may be. Then redirect it to it's section in the Beretta 92 page. With the Springfield Omega I would move it to where the rest of the Springfield's are. Then do the redirect. I'll do one for you so you can see how it's done. --Predator20 09:32, 27 August 2011 (CDT)

Here's a link to a redirect page. http://www.imfdb.org/w/index.php?title=Bruni_92&redirect=no Click edit and you can see how the coding is done. --Predator20 09:35, 27 August 2011 (CDT)
Well it looks like you got it figured out, my work here is done. :) Thanks for the complement on my HP, I need to take that thing out again, it's been awhile.--Predator20 13:46, 28 August 2011 (CDT)

Broken Arrow

Just letting you know that in Broken Arrow, the stealth bomber is specifically identified in the film as a "B-3", not a B2. --Ben41 18:46, 28 August 2011 (CDT)

re:deleting a page

With that one are you sure we shouldn't just redirect it to Leningrad Attack on?--Predator20 10:35, 5 September 2011 (CDT)


I just put the page as a redirect. In the future, PW, you can use the redirect instead of deleting the page if there's an alternate title for the film. --Ben41 05:14, 6 September 2011 (CDT)

naming nomenclature

I was wondering why you posted your message three times in a row, but then I figured it must have something to do with the 'delayed reaction' 'cloud' BS that IMFDB is experimenting with. Though it helps back up everything, the new system is maddening because NOTHING updates in real time any more. As for your question, the first reason of putting the year on any title is to differentiate it from identically named movies from previous years. But this is a less common instance where the year is also put on the updated title. Since the title was changed for the American Release (and the American release title takes precedence on IMFDB), people will know that the original title was indeed, simply, "Leningrad" but since the original title has multiple identities (several movies, at least one short, and also films shot in the Soviet Union and other countries in Europe that originally, or at some time, had the title "Leningrad"), the viewer may wonder "which version of Leningrad was re-titled "Attack on Leningrad" for the American audience? This is not an official rule and if it bothers you, we can remove it. IMFDB allows a little flexibility when it comes to making things clearer for the audience (though we tend to not be as flexible if someone wants to make something more vague). But since you created the page, you have the final call for this, since it is not a rule that is listed in the rules and regulations. If you want to remove the year, I would have no problem with it. It was just another bit of info to help members know what version & year we were discussing. thanks. MoviePropMaster2008 14:36, 6 September 2011 (CDT)

Moving pages

To save MPM the work of telling you this, the page move button is under the arrow pointing down between 'view history' and the search box. Click that and the options 'Move' and 'watch' (or 'unwatch') should come up. Click 'move' and enter the new page name. Moving the page will automatically turn the old page into a redirect to the new one; any links clicked to the old page will go to the new one instead. Evil Tim 05:12, 7 September 2011 (CDT)

It's Olympic

Just curious, Why did you change the name? You can see clearly on the image of the gun that it is spelled Olympic right there on the side of the gun. Not the other spelling. MoviePropMaster2008 12:47, 17 September 2011 (CDT)

Edit, I've noted quite a few times the Italian websites have typographical errors on their own products page. I ran into that with the real gun Benelli shotgun series and the Franchi pages. Well at least their typos are not as bad as the distorted English of the Japanese and Chinese websites! hahahahahaha.

Bruni Magnum

Actually we prefer that the non-firing replicas of a recognizable gun be put at the bottom of the page of the real gun. I think the Bruni Magnum is a replica of a Colt Python, so it should be at the bottom of the Colt Python page in a new section called ==Non Firing Replicas== or blank firing replicas. See the M1911 page. Also check out the M16 page. Both pages have guns which are not real guns at the bottom of the page. As for the Olympic, I don't think it matches any particular real world gun, so I suppose it merits its own page. But 99% of all the blank and fake guns out there on the market are copies of something that is real. So they belong at the bottom of those real gun pages. Thanks for your hard work! :) MoviePropMaster2008 13:02, 17 September 2011 (CDT)

For Predator20

What you're looking for is the "watchlist" option. To the right of "view history" on any page is a little down arrow; click on this to get a drop-down menu with "move" and "watch" on it. Clicking "watch" will add it to your watchlist ("My Watchlist" option in your profile at the top-right), which will allow you to keep track of all the pages you mark. Evil Tim 07:54, 26 September 2011 (CDT)

Since Tim loves to look at other peoples talk pages. (I'm guilty of that too.) He answered your question in better words than I could have done. --Predator20 09:02, 26 September 2011 (CDT)

The markup for a redirect is #REDIRECT [[PAGENAME]]. So with yours it's #REDIRECT [[Colt_Python#Bruni_Magnum]]. I've already changed it for you :) Evil Tim 09:39, 26 September 2011 (CDT)

Thanks for help

Thank you for help with "The Loner"! Greg-Z 06:28, 3 November 2011 (CDT)

Little country?

You have a great country. When I and my wife were stationed in Germany (1993-1996) we were able to visit Amsterdam, Nijmegen, and Arnhem. I'm a big military history guy. I've known several people from the Netherlands. One of my co-worked rs has a sister-in-law from Rotterdam. No apologies are necessary. I'll correct it. Also creating a category page is a trial and error process. You have to click on the create tab on the top of the page, add categories when you have the edit feature open [[Category:Movie]], [[Category:Television]], [[Category:Movie by Nationality]] (see below) and be sure to click Save Page on the bottom. It's a rather arcane process and one I learned to do after a few failure. --Jcordell 08:53, 16 November 2011 (CST)

RE: Unidentified rifle (in At Home Among Strangers)

Thank you! Yes, this rifle is most likely M1895. I guessed it's the same rifle as in White Sun of the Desert (Beloye solntse pustyni) which is not M1895.

At Home Among Strangers
White Sun of the Desert

I can see now that these two are different rifles. Greg-Z 03:43, 18 November 2011 (CST)

New Kids Turbo

Hello there,

i have the movie, if u need some screenshots please notice i uploaded in the best resolution i can access.

But what u wrote to the discussions page is correct i guess. Also Richard is shooting a Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II when with Manuela, not a M1938. Can u edit?

--Rikkert 12:53, 21 December 2011 (CST)

Dukes

I had been in my own actor creating groove of late, so I was used to going to IMDb to look up details. IMDb also helps you uncover roles that may already be on IMFDb. But yeah, if the guy looked old in 1980, I think it's okay to question if he's still alive thirty years later.

BTW, I can't watch Dukes of Hazzard anymore. I loved it as a kid, trying to slide over hoods and trying to enter cars through the window but I can't watch it anymore knowing they destroyed a classic Dodge Charger in each episode. It's too painful to watch now. --Funkychinaman 16:20, 22 December 2011 (CST)

I went to Washington, DC a few years ago on Memorial Day weekend and I saw them rehearsing the Memorial Day concert. I have to admit, I was really excited when I saw that the MC was TOM WOPAT (coming off of his run as Frank Butler in Annie Get Your Gun on Broadway.) Have you seen the reunion specials? The first one was nice, since it was the only one that had Denver Pyle.
You know what kills me? They KNEW they were destroying classic cars, because they started running out towards the later seasons and expenses started to go up. But instead of compensating by writing better scripts, they kept going, sometimes using models or stock footage. I don't mind that they were damaging cars, who knows how many police cars they wrecked. I do mind smashing up hundreds of classic cars though. --Funkychinaman 16:52, 22 December 2011 (CST)

Kampfpistole

Most wartime weapons had multiple manufacturers, what matters is the designer of the weapon (Walther, in this case). There being a second manufacturer who made these under contract is no reason to remove the manufacturer name, for example, Miniguns are manufactured by dozens of companies but the article is still called GE M134. When calling the calibre what matters is the common name of the round, not the fiddly exact number; as far as I can tell the Leuchtpistole / Kampfpistole rounds were referred to as 27mm, not 26.65mm. Also, please don't edit war, it doesn't help. Evil Tim 09:48, 24 December 2011 (CST)

Another problem with that article: we already have one. I'll merge the two later. Evil Tim 09:55, 24 December 2011 (CST)
Oh. I guess you hadn't noticed I was reverting your changes and just thought they weren't going through or something; I thought you might just be one of those users who thinks hitting undo over and over is the best way to get something done. Glad I was wrong.
I actually think they should all go under "Walther Leuchtpistole" with the Kampfpistole Z a subheading; from what I read while I was checking, the Kampfpistole is a Leuchtpistole variant. Walther originally made the Leuchtpistoles, so they'd be the main name / designer for the article. Evil Tim 10:46, 24 December 2011 (CST)
Hey there. I made the move to Kampfpistole Z at the suggestion of admin Phoenixent. As for the other info, you can go in and add it yourself, we have the same privileges, and it's not locked. --Funkychinaman 16:46, 3 January 2012 (CST)
Hi, Thanks for the added info on Kampfpistole Z to explain the differance between the two types. I think that Kampfpistole Z tile is fine at this time due the the way it is use in the films listed. You can add info in the notes section on each film if has not been done already. Please feel free to add more history on these if you would like. Thanks Again.--phoenixent 11:08, 5 January 2012 (CST)

Elephant White

I didn't make that change, that was Commando552. All I did was put in redirects. (BTW, please use redirects.) --Funkychinaman 16:42, 7 August 2012 (CDT)

Yeah, that was me. Several ways to tell, firstly the 700 has an ejection port that is open all the may around the receiver (notice how the scope rail bridges over the open top) wheras all AI rifles have an ejection port that is only on one side. Secondly, the receiver is round on the 700 whilst the AI rifles have a flat sided receiver. An the AI there is just a small semi-circular cut out in the polymer stock for the bolt handle stem, whilst the AICS has a large cut out with a separates plastic collar inside (not sure if this is a good description, just look at the bolt handle area on the two rifles and you will see the difference). The AI has a large round nob on the bolt handle (after market bolts for the Remington 700 can look like this so not a deal breaker). There are more differences like the design of the rear of the bolt but these are the most obvious ones to help with an ID. --commando552 18:01, 7 August 2012 (CDT)
A redirect is basically just a shortcut. So instead of linking to [[Beretta_92_pistol_series#Beretta_92FS_Inox]], you can just type in [[Beretta 92FS Inox]]. While it simplified making pages, the main purpose for this is for if the page headings ever change. For example, the subheadings for the SIG-Sauer P220 pistol series pages were corrected a few months ago. The original link for the SIG-Sauer P226, [[SIG-Sauer P220 pistol series#SIG P226]], which is still on the War of the Worlds page, is now incorrect and only goes to the [[SIG-Sauer P220 pistol series]] page since the "SIG P226" subheading no longer exists. Every single page with that link had to be manually corrected, and as you can see, some still exist. If the link was simply [[SIG-Sauer P226]], then it'd only have to be corrected once. --Funkychinaman 15:44, 29 August 2012 (CDT)

Page Creation

You seems that your process of page creating seems to be the reverse of what most people do, adding entries to actor and weapon pages before finally creating the actual page for the film. I don't have any problems with that, but one of the benefits of creating the page for the film first is that it allows other users to correct any IDs that you may have gotten wrong. You could potentially be saving a step. --Funkychinaman (talk) 12:36, 26 January 2013 (EST)

I wouldn't worry too much about red links. I worked on them before, and there are roughly five or six thousand of them. (Yes, THOUSAND.) --Funkychinaman (talk) 14:47, 26 January 2013 (EST)
Don't get me wrong, I agree with you, I'm just saying, we can't get them all. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:12, 26 January 2013 (EST)

Zulu Dawn

One of the production companies for Zulu Dawn is "Zulu Dawn NV." Isn't "NV" a Dutch thing? --Funkychinaman (talk) 03:13, 30 January 2013 (EST)

That rule existed before me, and in the past there had been some confusion as to whether it meant the production companies or filming locations, and we've finally standardized on production companies. The only place I know of where we can get that info is company credits in IMDB.
The really weird one is The Outsider, a movie about The Troubles, and yet the only production company listed was "Cinematic Arts B.V.". --Funkychinaman (talk) 11:30, 30 January 2013 (EST)

Move tool

I just want to remind you that you can always just move a page rather than manually creating a new page and redirect. The move tool does it all at once. --Funkychinaman (talk) 10:18, 4 February 2013 (EST)

re:RPK trunnion

On most "AK" style rifles after the original fully milled AK-47s, the receiver is made of stamped sheet metal. In order to strengthen it and as a point to attach the barrel, there is a block of milled steel at the front which is called a trunion. On RPKs (and some AKs such as the Zastava models) this trunion is strengthened in order to stand up better to automatic fire, which means that there has to be a rectangular bulge on the outside of the receiver behind the barrel to accommodate this. This shot shows it quite well and is circled in red:

RE: Dangerous man M70B1

Not sure why [ [ M70B1 ] ] works just as well as [ [ M70 ] ]B1. The finer points of formatting and and links escape me. And I think that "abductor tube" may be a poorly translated wording for the gas tube.--Mandolin (talk) 17:13, 13 October 2013 (EDT)

I was the one who edited that link so though I might as well explain. The reason it works is due to the redirects that have been already been created by users, and I'll use the Zastava and AK-47 page as an example. The only time that you can put a link in square brackets and have it take you to a page without using a redirect is to either use the page name [[AK-47]] to get AK-47, or to put a link to a specific section of the page and rename the link such as [[AK-47#Zastava_M70|Zastava M70B1]] to get Zastava M70B1. If you just put in the section name [[Zastava M70]] it will not automatically take you to the right page without somebody already having created a redirect. If you click on Zastava M70 and scroll to the top of the whole page you will see the text "(Redirected from Zastava M70)" under the AK-47 page title. If you click on the text it will take you to the redirect page and you can see the coding that is used to do one of these redirects. The reason I was able to change it to say Zastava M70B1 is that somebody has already created that particular redirect page (me, by pure coincidence).
For example, if there was a variant called the Zastava M70C1 and you wanted to link to it simply with the text [[Zastava M70C1]] but when you tried it you get a red link, you would have to create the redirect yourself. This would be done by creating a page title "Zastava M70C1" and having the contents of the page be "#redirect[[AK-47#Zastava_M70]]. That's all you have to do, then the [[Zastava M70C1]] would appear as a blue link, and take you to the correct section that you used in the redirect. If you want to know what title to put in the redirect to take you to the right section, the easiest way to do it is to click on the section on the contents table that you want the redirect to go to, and then copying the last part of the URL. So in this example, the URL after clicking on the M70 section on the contents bar is "http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/AK-47#Zastava_M70", so you take the last part which starts with the main page name, "AK-47#Zastava_M70", and use this for the redirect.
I'm probably not explaining this very well, if you have any more questions about how to do these or any other bits of coding, just ask. Also, the squarer shape to the Zastava's gas tube isn't due to the shape of it or the gas block itself, but by the fact that it incorporates a folding sight for launching rifle grenades from the muzzle. --commando552 (talk) 17:55, 13 October 2013 (EDT)

Team America: World Police

I had assumed that since you've been around here for a while now, you would've gotten the hint when you saw that the page for Team America: World Police was locked. It was locked for a reason, and the admins are debating its eligibility as we speak. I'm moving it to the talk page in the mean time. --Funkychinaman (talk) 19:19, 19 October 2013 (EDT)

Thanks for letting me know, but to be honest I don't know how I can see that a page is locked. I am actually somewhat unpleasantly surprised by the sudden reactions to my page creation but I appreciate the admin debate and I look forward to the outcome. Hope you don't mind, but I feel compelled to also leave a short reaction at the talk page. Take care, PeeWee055 (talk) 06:48, 20 October 2013 (EDT)
If you click on Team America: World Police, what do you see? --Funkychinaman (talk) 09:04, 21 October 2013 (EDT)
I believe the reason for this is that when you created the Team america page, you did so under the heading of Team America: World police. As this has a typo (lower case p on Police) it is a different page name so it wasn't locked. The same would apply if you has a mis-spelling like Taem America: World Police, which as you can see isn't locked as the database only has the original Team America: World Police as a protected page. --commando552 (talk) 10:55, 21 October 2013 (EDT)
The admins voted 6-0 in favor of allowing it. Thanks for your patience. --Funkychinaman (talk) 16:05, 26 October 2013 (EDT)
Thanks a lot! This is really much appreciated, I will publish the page tomorrow and finalize it. Please thanks the other admins on my behalf. Guess I will stay away from anime though, PeeWee055 (talk) 20:07, 26 October 2013 (EDT)

Re: Countdown (Lichnyy nomer)

Hi PeeWee, I'm glad to help. The weapon on the third screenshot looks like AS Val. The pistol on the first screenshot really looks like P99 that appears in many Russian movies of late 2000s. It can be an airsoft copy, many non-Russian firearms in modern Russian movies are really airsoft copies. Sorry, I cannot say anything about the second gun. I'll try to search on Russian web cites, maybe some data can be found. Greg-Z (talk) 22:44, 18 November 2013 (EST)

I think the the pistol is a CO2 gun called the Skif Anics A-3000:
Skif Anics A-3000 - .177 pellet
It comes in a standard version, or one with a long barrel with a fake suppressor shroud which this is. As for the second gun, I believe it is probably a PDT-9T Esaul.--commando552 (talk) 05:08, 19 November 2013 (EST)
It could be a Kedr/Klin, TBH I mainly guessed it was an Esaul as due to the fact it isn't legally a gun they tend to be more common in Russian films (and have also appeared modified to resemble other guns which could be the case here), particularly as they are also using an air pistol standing in for a real gun. The front sight does appear to be the taller winged one used on the Kedr/Klin, but am not 100% sure from that shot as it is pretty blurry. --commando552 (talk) 08:29, 19 November 2013 (EST)
It seems to me that visually modified Esaul is more believable than original Kedr. I tried to find out some more info about the filming of Lichnyy nomer but found nothing concerning firearms. Greg-Z (talk) 12:33, 19 November 2013 (EST)
Well, I agree. As it seems to me, Kedr is more possible version than Klin, it is more widespread. Even a special blank-firing version of Kedr was manufactured for movie makers, but this happened two years later than Lichnyy nomer was filmed. Greg-Z (talk) 13:14, 20 November 2013 (EST)

Of course I'll examine the page. After brief look I can only say that it's a very good work! If I'll find something that deserve comments, I'll put them on the discussion page. Greg-Z (talk) 08:39, 4 December 2013 (EST) P.S. Pleeeeeeese don't mark your edits on talk pages as "minor edits" - they are very hard to find in such case because they aren't seen on "Recent changes"! :) Greg-Z (talk) 08:39, 4 December 2013 (EST)

At last I've looked carefully through the page. As it seems to me, all firearms are identified correct. My only comment: the fighter planes are not Su-27s but Su-30s. Greg-Z (talk) 10:41, 4 December 2013 (EST)
I don't know the correct term for the thing that is seen over the fuselage on the screenshot with Il-76 and two fighter planes. This feature exists on Su-30 but not on Su-27. Also Su-27UB, the two-seat version of Su-27, carries only one missile under each wing while the screen plane carries two, like Su-30. Concerning special forces: it seems to me that this is a "generic special force" in the movie, the troopers doesn't carry any insignia of a real special force. Greg-Z (talk) 12:09, 4 December 2013 (EST)

Thanks!

Thanks! My Dad was actually born in Amsterdam, migrated to Australia in the 60's, so I'm a half Dutch Australian who currently lives in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. It seems the US movies get done pretty quickly (and well) by other users and I don't mind doing the occasional obscure movie that's missed out. All the best.

Hamilton

I'll continue the chat here. I just created a template for the Carl Hamilton films, so any additions, new or old, can be added to the template. As for a category to add actors who played Hamilton, it sounds like a good idea. I mean there are 5 actors who have played Agent Hamilton (not all of the films are on IMFDB, though). --Warejaws (talk) 07:26, 15 December 2013 (EST)

No, go ahead. I was gonna do it myself when I had the time but since you already have it handled, go ahead. --Warejaws (talk) 11:57, 16 December 2013 (EST)

re:The Hooligan Wars

In the UK the term "SWAT" is not used for any unit. In normal regional police forces there are two kinds of armed officers, "Authorised Firearms Officers" and "Specilaist Firearms Officers". The most common ones you will see are normal AFOs, as these are the people who crew armed response vehicles, do foot patrols and guard high profile locations. AFOs look pretty much exactly like regular police, same hat, high vis markings, stuff like that. SFOs are the equivelent of SWAT in the US, in that they are better equipped, can use more specialist weapons (like stun grenades and sniper rifles), have specialist training (like hostage rescue, MOE and abseiling), and will only be deployed in situations where they are required. They look like how you would normally picture American SWAT, wearing black or blue fire-redardent coveralls, assault vests, helmets, nomex balaclavas, stuff like that. It is probably best to refer to the regular armed police as just "Firearms Officers" and the "SWAT type" ones as "Specialist Firearms Officers". This is not 100% correct as you do get some AFOs that would look "SWAT like" such as armed officers from the Territorial Support Group (riot police) but for our purposes this is a good rule of thumb. --commando552 (talk) 19:13, 1 April 2014 (EDT)

Kommissar Rex

Let me just jump in here, the reason why this page was deleted was because the caps were of poor quality and were clearly bootlegs (They were not only watermarked with the TV station, but they might be the only caps on IMFDB with time and temperature.) If someone were to upload quality caps we'd be happy to restore it. --Funkychinaman (talk) 13:51, 1 June 2014 (EDT)

I cannot add anything to foresaid, it's a complete answer. Sorry that I was late to answer. Greg-Z (talk) 15:27, 1 June 2014 (EDT)

Triple B movies

Many thanks for Sidaris' Triple B movies! These pages are really exciting. Do you plan to make pages for all these films? Greg-Z (talk) 13:37, 5 July 2015 (EDT)

I have seen several of these movies many years ago, on VHS and in appropriate poor quality, - Hard Ticket to Hawaii, Savage Beach, and Fit To Kill, as far as I can remember. They were quite popular in Russia in 1990s. It's a real fun to see them on IMFDB in decent quality. So now I'll wait for Guns page and wish you well in future creating. Greg-Z (talk) 13:56, 5 July 2015 (EDT)
Oh, thanks a lot! It's really exciting in its own specific kind. :) BTW, I have a chance to get two of Triple B movies: Do or Die and Hard Ticket to Hawaii. Both are in a moderate quality as they are digitised VHS but I think that guns are identifiable (maybe with some help). So I'll put them in my To-Do list. Greg-Z (talk) 08:47, 23 August 2015 (EDT)
You're welcome. You can use the revised pages as reference for your future movie pages. --Ben41 (talk) 03:58, 25 August 2015 (EDT)

Well, Hard Ticket to Hawaii is ready now. Looks like Old Good Andy Sidaris used same guns again and again in his movies, like custom AR-7 or Snake Charmer. But the rocket launcher is not the same that in Guns. BTW, what do you think about the first unidentified pistol? It looks similar to the one, seen in Savage Beach. Greg-Z (talk) 11:18, 29 August 2015 (EDT)

Really, Andy's box of guns is reused again and again. I started working on Do or Die, and there are the same guns, Beretta Jetfire, Raven Arms, Dan Wesson, custom AR-7 and others. Also a wonderful Calico with sniper scope is seen. Concerning actors, I'll try to find a screenshot for Lory Green but Joseph Hieu's face isn't seen clear enough, so we'll have to wait until we can see him in some other movie. Greg-Z (talk) 07:22, 31 August 2015 (EDT)
Do or Die is really funny, the simple and straight storyline is just like old arcade game - going from point to point, repelling attacks of bad guys. I guess that Andy himself didn't take is too serious. Now The Dallas Connection is in my plans, but I guess that it's the last of these films that I could get in adoptable quality. But I'll try. :) Greg-Z (talk) 08:58, 6 September 2015 (EDT)

RE:MG42 page

I cant see any problem with it on my computer. Comparing the current version to the one from before you edited, the only differences that I can see are the M53 section and an extra paragraph break in the top section. Can you describe the problem a bit more, which part isn't lining up with what? --commando552 (talk) 06:46, 2 November 2015 (EST)

I think that what the white space is, is where an add should be, same as that area of white at the top. I don't know why it looks like this though, as if you have an adblocker there should be no gap, and if you don't you should see the adds. I've disabled the adblocker on my computer and it looks exactly like yours for me, except there are adds in the spaces. It may have ben a temporary problem with the ad provider, is it still white for you now? Also, just FYI if you want to get rid of ads or this white space, the easiest way is to change the appearance settings of your profile to anything but the standard default one (go to preferences, then appearance and change it from Vector to, for example, Monobook). The adds only show up on the default appearance. In order to get the weapon to show up on the search when it is a section like this, you have to create a redirect. You do this by creating a page titled "Zastava M53" and having the text be this piece of code pointing to the correct section on the main page: " #redirect[[MG42#Zastava_M53]] ". I have done this for this weapon, here. Also, with redirects it means that on the media pages you just have to type in Zastava M53 to create a link rather than having to do the code.--commando552 (talk) 10:02, 2 November 2015 (EST)

Cleopatra Jones old screenshots

I deleted old screenshots as they are now duplicates but if you need them, I'll restore the images. Greg-Z (talk) 14:11, 15 December 2015 (EST)

Sorry, I was too hasty. All images restored, so they can be kept on discussion page. Greg-Z (talk) 14:23, 15 December 2015 (EST)
I restored all of them. Maybe the images need some time to come back from the screenshots afterworld. Let's wait a little, I'll check the page tomorrow. If they wouldn't appear, I'll see what else can be done. Greg-Z (talk) 14:47, 15 December 2015 (EST)

Images for On Wings of Eagles

Hello! While cleaning unused files, I found three screenshots that you uploaded for On Wings of Eagles page: File:OnWingsOfEagles-SmithWessonM76-03.jpg, File:OnWingsOfEagles-SmithWessonM76-05.jpg, and File:OnWingsOfEagles-SmithWessonM76-07.jpg. They seem to contain firearms that aren't listed on the movie page. Do you need them? I think that maybe you accidentally forgot to put them on the page.

BTW, I think that the SMG in red circle on OnWingsOfEagles-SmithWessonM76-07.jpg screenshot appears to be a "Grease Gun" with some barrel shroud (maybe a silencer) rather than an S&W M76. The movie was shot in Mexico, and similar looking "Grease Gun" is seen in also Mexican-filmed The Vengeance of the Winged Serpent. Greg-Z (talk) 09:50, 1 January 2016 (EST)

On Wings of Eagles
The Vengeance of the Winged Serpent
Thanks and I also wish you happy new year! I deleted the duplicated files, as you asked. Ik ben blij om u te helpen! (I hope that this is properly said in Dutch :).) Greg-Z (talk) 13:35, 8 January 2016 (EST)
Thanks for this small lesson of Dutch :) I'll take it into account. Greg-Z (talk) 13:51, 15 January 2016 (EST) BTW, I'm 46 years old so we are of close age :) Greg-Z (talk) 13:53, 15 January 2016 (EST)

More Triple B movies

Hello! I managed to get two more of Triple B films: Fit to Kill and Return to Savage Beach. More old heroes, more old enemies... and more old guns from Andy Sidaris' box of toys! So I start now with Fit to Kill. Greg-Z (talk) 15:50, 26 January 2016 (EST)

During the first half of the movie I could see a Dan Wesson, an H&R revolver, a pair of Micro Uzi, an M16 with grenade launcher, a Calico with sniper scope, and a suppressed Smith & Wesson 3913NL (so I guess). A brief looking at the end reveals a Smith & Wesson 622, a double barreled Colt shotgun, a pistol grip pump action, a full size Uzi and what appears to be an RPD machine gun. But strangely no trace of Raven Arms pistol, pocket Beretta or signature custom AR-7, while Street Sweeper is seen only in a footage from Hard Hunted. Greg-Z (talk) 02:50, 27 January 2016 (EST)
Construction complete, so to say. :) I'm unsure in several identifications, including the pump action shotgun, the supposed S&W bright revolver (nickel or stainless?) and the exact model of M16 and M203 (or Cobray CM203?) so any help would be greatly appreciated. If I have free time, I'll try to make a page for Return to Savage Beach until the weekend. Greg-Z (talk) 15:32, 27 January 2016 (EST)
A good weekend to you too! What would you say about supposed S&W Model 10HB and Beretta 92FS? I'm not sure in identification. And one more question: have you visited AndySidaris.com? There is a gallery of photos and DVD bonus features that may be interesting. But I have a trouble with registration on site. Maybe you will try to register and get access to this gallery? Greg-Z (talk) 16:24, 29 January 2016 (EST)
I made a list of signature guns of these movies. Hope it would be useful. Greg-Z (talk) 03:30, 30 January 2016 (EST)
I see, it's a very interesting addition, thanks! Not often we can compare a lot of similar movies of the same director. Greg-Z (talk) 15:05, 30 January 2016 (EST)

Hello! I'm glad to present Malibu Express page. At last I got a chance to get this film, and also Day of the Warrior, so only Picasso Trigger is not covered. I'm a little unsure about Remington Model 31, and Beverly's pistol is identified only marginally (it seems to have Beretta-style open top slide), but other guns are seen quite well. It's a pity that Andy Sidaris didn't use High Standard 10A in following movies, it has so charming outlook! :) Greg-Z (talk) 03:48, 3 June 2016 (EDT)

I also had at first the idea that the shotgun is Ithaca 37 but there is the ejection port seen on the second screenshot, and this doesn't match Ithaca. So I guessed it to be Remington 31. Greg-Z (talk) 07:12, 4 June 2016 (EDT)

Day of the Warrior

Hi! Thanks, I hope that the last movie would be also added once. Have you any ideas about unidentified guns? I'm also not sure about the revolver of a Mexican police officer, maybe it's not H&R. Greg-Z (talk) 07:15, 17 June 2016 (EDT)

Re:Picasso Trigger

Hello! Sorry for delay, I was away for two weeks and got your message only today. With great interest, I am waiting for the page. Greg-Z (talk) 14:55, 28 August 2016 (EDT)

Picasso Trigger

Hi! It's great to see this gap closed, thanks! Well, we see the standard choice of toys from Unkle Andy's box, and all these rocket launching canes, I think, would pleasure even James Bond :) Really, Sidaris had his "Q" for making all these things. What puzzles me, is the Luger. I've never seen such barrel like the one of the third screenshot. The pistol on the first screenshot seems to have a different barrel that looks more standard, while the conical barrel on the last shot looks rather unusial. Maybe this is some target version? Greg-Z (talk) 13:14, 26 May 2017 (EDT)

Yes, I agree, it's very possible guess. Maybe it's worth noting that the Luger has non-standard barrel. Greg-Z (talk) 12:59, 27 May 2017 (EDT)

I FOUND THE GUN!

You were talking about that gun from the Andy Sidaris movies... well I found it! It's an italian cap gun (Edison Giocattoli) from the 1980's.
It's officially called the "Edison Giocattoli Sharkmatic".
http://www.antiquetoys.com/product/edison-giocattoli-cap-guns-supermatic/

Here ya go! Might want a better image though... I might be able to photoshop it for ya!

-SeptemberJack (talk) 14:38, 10 August 2017 (EDT)

Hi Jack, thanks so much! Even though I accepted I would never find out what gun this was, it really kept bugging me. I will revise the corresponding movie/actor pages in the coming weeks and create a gun page. I am busy professionally but will find the time. I will use the image you send me but let me know if you can make a photoshop version. Thanks again for solving this matter, PeeWee055 (talk) 14:40, 12 August 2017 (EDT)
Hello! I already cropped the image and uploaded it to the movie pages. Sorry if I hurried a little but I just had free time for this work, and photoshop is my everyday tool of job. :) Greg-Z (talk) 15:04, 12 August 2017 (EDT)
Looks like Greg beat me to it, but I was just about to tell you that he had already done a great photoshop and added it to the pages. I also put it in your list of repeated entries in the Andy Sidaris movies. :) -SeptemberJack (talk) 22:42, 12 August 2017 (EDT)
