Category talk:General Information
I think we should have a separate section for disambiguation pages and not include them in the general information category.--SB2296 08:59, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
movie " The Painted Vail"
I recently saw this picture, I can´t find it in the imfdb listing.
In the movie, appears a chinese guard, using a handgun I would like to identify. Curiously, not much seen, it carries a pistol in a wooden shoulder holster ( very similar to the old Mausers or Lugers ), attached to his uniform´belt.
My friends, the page imfdb is more than excelent, allowing me to learn ( and understand ) a lot.
The film is actually titled "The Painted Veil", and would appear on the site if someone made a page for it. --Ben41 16:58, 4 July 2011 (CDT)
Might be a Shansi Type 17? It's a Chinese copy of the famous broomhandle Mauser and had a detachable shoulder stock that could be used as a holster. If it's a more modern-looking pistol it might be a Stechkin APS. Evil Tim 22:01, 4 July 2011 (CDT)
History of M16 in movies page
I remember MPM was working on a page titled that and going over the historical use of the AR15/M16 in media (with accompanying info about actual military adoption/usage, etc). It was a WIP last I saw it (I actually saved the page on my other computer) This was a couple years ago now but I thought it was an interesting piece with some unique factoids and photos. Did the page get canned (with the AR ID guide and/or other pages taking it's place) or was it just shelved? StanTheMan (talk) 18:36, 21 July 2013 (EDT)
- IMFDB Info: The History of M16s in Film and Television still being worked on I guess. --Funkychinaman (talk) 03:59, 22 July 2013 (EDT)
- Ah, thanks FCM - I couldn't find it in my search the other day. Sadly it still seems like it's in the same state as it was before. Of course I know MPM is/gets busy so that's cool, plus going into the 90s would be a bit daunting to catalog for that page.. whoo, better MPM than me. ;) StanTheMan (talk) 13:56, 22 July 2013 (EDT)
