Just a minor thing... I've changed "Colt/Browning M1911" to "Colt M1911A1", which was the type used during WWII and Korea- The M1911 is technically the WWI variant. I've removed the "Browning" reference because even though the M1911 design is that of Browning, the pistols used in service were never made by FN/Browning, and labelling them as such could be confusing. I have, however, added the M1917 Revolver and the Smith & Wesson "Victory" revolver to the template as well. --Commander Zulu 02:28, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

I've changed Colt M1911A1 Semi-Automatic to Colt M1911/A1, since both versions (M1911 and M1911A1) were used during WWII, and removed "Semi-Automatic", which is an unnecessary statement. I have also removed upper case Rs on "revolver", since it is not part of the weapon's name. —Squalla 19:52, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Shotguns?[edit]

Shouldn't shotguns like the Winchester M12 and Ithaca 37 be listed here? --Nukes4Tots (talk) 15:58, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

9x19mm under cartridges?[edit]

A minor note, but shouldn't 9x19mm also be listed under cartridges? The United Defense M42 was chambered in said and was issued to US troops. The M3 "Grease Gun" was also chambered for the cartridge, but (IIRC) only the .45 ACP variant was issued to US forces. Surv1v4l1st (Talk|Contribs) 22:08, 23 January 2010 (UTC)
