Default List of Movie Armory Websites?

I was wondering if it would be a good idea to compile a list of websites for movie armories around the world for reference purposes and for general interest. Certainly, not all the most prominent armories have websites, but having an easily accessible list of those that do could help with identifying weapons and determining what armorers would realistically have on hand for movies.

Just to start, here a few sites I've come across:

International Movie Services (IMS) - A Vancouver based company that supplies weapons, vehicles, uniforms and props to numerous productions filmed in Canada. The main weapons section is still under construction, but there are interesting descriptions for vehicles that are worth a look:

Hire Arms- A South African company specializing in military/police weapons and props. They have supplied weapons to productions such as Hotel Rwanda and Lord of War and have numerous photos on their website:

Props Co.Ltd- A Hong Kong company that has provided weapons to many recent films made there, including The Sniper. They are the largest movie armory in Hong Kong and have a large and varied collection of weapons:

If anyone else has any links to movie armories, feel free to share them.

These two do lots of work on independent and B-movies:
