I think what's hard (and please know I say this with ALL due respect), you and many of the other senior members here know SO much more about guns than man of the junior members here. I know at least a few of the admins work in Hollywood with guns everyday. For us n00bs, it is much harder to figure out what a gun is. If we have a well organized page we can go to that helps us figure it out then we feel a little bit smarter, the website gets another good entry and experts don't have to come along and correct where one of us has put a Beretta 92 that is actually a Taurus PT92. Just my 2 cents.

Well, Bunni sees it, since there's now a manufacturer section in the wiki sidebar, so I think that particular debate boat has sailed.

Just a note for these; where there are multiple manufacturers for something (eg Browning M2, M134) we should probably have a field for saying so on the page to avoid confusion.

Totally agreed. Another good example would be the Desert Eagle.
