I think it will be particularly good when the S&W page gets built. (That will take some time.) I often have to open several pages up to compare images. H&K is the same way. Which has been built.

Yea S&W is going to take me FOREVER. I'm doing Colt right now... The colt pages need a LOT of work. They are all formatted differently.

I could really use one of my older and wiser colleagues taking a look at the Colt page. I want to make sure I get as much information in there as possible.

So what's the general take on these? I'm thinking of starting the Smith & Wesson page soon...

Default Future Additions

So I just ran into a small issue that I wanted to get some input from people about. Ben41 Recently added the FN Forty-Nine to the site after the FN Herstal page had been added. It wasn't until I stumbled across the FN Forty-Nine that I went back and added it. Now you already have enough to deal with every time you add an occurrence of a gun (the corrosponding movie page, the gun page, the actor page, etc)...

My quesiton is this, should we list all guns made by a manufacturer even if they don't appear on the site yet? I know this site is NOT a gun encyclopedia which is defiantly something I want to be aware of. But, this will also help to identify guns that are used in a movie that have not yet been created on the site.

Alternatively, I can just keep an eye out for new pages and add them when I see them.

I'd be interested to hear thoughts. :-)

I still just don't see the purpose or utility. And recently, as we've seen, it starts to look redundant when you're dealing with manufacturers such as Glock (the Glock manufacturer page serves almost no purpose that isn't already fulfilled by the existing Glock page on IMFDB).
