- You still working on that book in which the character uses a Broomhandle? I know you posted the question four years ago, but I own one and I've fired them. Might be able to help. Sorry for the tardy response, but better late than never. Right? --Jcordell (talk) 12:23, 18 November 2017 (EST)
- Well, I appreciate the offer, but that ended up not happening! Still love the C96, though. --PyramidHead (talk) 18:55, 20 November 2017 (EST)
Many thanks for grammar corrections in Duelist and others! After many years of studying English, I still make mistakes and I'm thankful that you corrected the text. --Greg-Z (talk) 02:58, 19 April 2020 (EDT)
- And again I thank you for corrections! I just wanted to clarify the following point: much earlier I was told that correct English term is WW2 rather than WWII. Now I see that you use the Roman numbers. So WWII is correct? Thanks! --Greg-Z (talk) 15:00, 29 June 2020 (EDT)
The Witch (Vedma)
Hello, PyramidHead! A geat thanks for the correcting my terrible English in The Witch (Vedma) and Yakuzas movies. But, I have one moment: the Ukrainian language also spoken in the "The Witch" TV-series, thought virtualy rare: some episodical characters speak Ukrainian at the very few points (possibly, due they played by Ukrainian actors, while they are Russians according the plot). So, Ukrainian also spoken in this media. Pyramid Silent (talk) 14:26, 17 July 2020 (EDT)
On the M1911 in Death on the Nile
So far so good, but try not to make the assumption that it's a later version of the pistol purely because folks assume that the A1 is more seen in films than the original M1911. Many of these classic armories got their guns decades ago. I remember that a previous mod (whom will remain unnamed) kept on making these types of assumptions. He stated that most P38s in War movie were probably P5s because they were newer and he assumed that they were more common. That's not correct, though. I've been to most of these gun armories and most of the handguns were acquired when they were common and cheap. Many of these armories have been around since the early 20th century or acquired the collections of other movie armories from that time period. Stembridge, ISS and Cinema Weaponry for example had tons of original wartime P38s because they were all acquired when original Wartime P38 pistols were common. Bapty's Armory of England has TONS of original Ww1 and WW2 era weapons. They never use modern repros for any of the war pics filmed in England for example. On a interesting trivia note: Stembridge acquired all of their Civil War Guns (seen in Gone with the Wind) during the Great Depression of the 1930s. Sid Senior went around the deep south and purchased the guns from any family will to sell them and they were all original Civil war guns. They had THOUSANDS of original Civil war firearms. In fact they provided over 4000 original civil war weapons to the movie "Glory" :D At the time, some of the writers just assumed that they used modern black powder reproductions of 19th century firearms, but the armory had thousand of original guns from the period. Back to the M1911, or M1911A1, I look forward to the release so we can score some good screencaps of the movie. :D MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 00:54, 16 September 2020 (EDT)
- Thanks. Also Sid Senior, when he drove through the South in the 1930s, offered families $5 dollars per gun. He picked up entire TRUCKloads of original cap and ball revolvers, long guns, including original kentucky flintlocks, and even some Brown Besses. when I first visited the Stembridge armory in the 1980s. they had wine barrels PACKED with flintlock and Cap & ball long guns, sorted by type. The last time I was there, there were crates of 'wheel lock' long guns, which no one was renting for movies any more. :( MoviePropMaster2008 (talk) 13:55, 18 September 2020 (EDT)
RE: SKS Mass-dimensional model
I'm not entirely sure how it will be in English, but the bottom line is that the KC produces a number of weapon models, a non-firing copy of the guns corresponding to the original in size and weight. It is used in the design of equipment for testing the layout, as well as for joint testing of several types of equipment. In the case of weapons, it is used in the initial stages of training and as a collectible. Also, you can buy MMG without a gun license. --Pustelga7 (talk) 24 December 2020
