Greetings and welcome to my user page.
About myself: I'm an amateur firearms enthusiast, mostly interested in Soviet/Russian, Former Warsaw Pact/Former CIS, Yugoslav, Chinese, Latin American and Spanish firearms, and how they are depicted in films and video games. I decided to join IMFDb to learn more about them, as well as to create and edit articles in hopes of identifying the firearms featured in my favorite films and video games.
In order to correctly identify weapons, I use (aside from the Internet) several printed firearms encyclopedias/illustrated atlases as reference. I always try to use reliable sources and provide accurate information.
Please don't hesitate to message me if you need help with translations in Russian or Spanish. I can also be of some help in identifying native firearms from Uruguay, Argentina and Spain.
Experience with firearms: I have visited several military/small arms museums in Spain and Russia, and held some of the weapons on display. I have fired a genuine Type III AK-47 in Russia, where I intend to return in order to fire all the remaining available weapons at the firing range and improve my weapons handling expertise. It is my goal to one day own at least one civilian AK series rifle (TG-2, KR-103 or AK-TR3).
