NRA as a civil rights org[edit]

The topic of the NRA being the oldest civil rights org is under discussion again [1]. Niteshift36 (talk) 18:52, 6 October 2017 (UTC)

CuriousMind01 attempting the change the rules in order to override consensus at the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Council page[edit]

My fellow editors CuriousMind01 is at it again this time at the Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Council page, where he is attempting the change the rules in order to override consensus and make the Wikipedia:WikiProject Firearms meaningless. So that he can add "Criminal use" sections to as many firearm pages as he can get away with. I encourage my fellow editors to comment there --RAF910 (talk) 16:24, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

Information icon There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding User: CuriousMind01 vs User:RAF910 and issues with which editors to this project may have been involved. ----RAF910 (talk) 14:06, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Article Sub-caliber round[edit]

This article is exceptionally poorly written though I doubt whether WP:PROD is the way to go. Could people with more expertise in this subject please take action? I could handle the cleanup but afterwards there might not be substantial content left. The Average Wikipedian (talk) 13:55, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Subject article seems more applicable to Wikipedia:WikiProject Military history than to WikiProject Firearms. Most of the text relates to grenade-launchers and team served military weapons rather than small arms. It might better be merged and redirected with the Saboted light armor penetrator, Kinetic energy penetrator, Armour-piercing discarding sabot, and Armour-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot articles. Subject article's text applicable to small arms is already covered in the Sabot and Caliber conversion sleeve articles. Thewellman (talk) 20:59, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
Bit late, but I've removed and revdel'd some copyvio, which still leaves a short, unreferenced stub. ansh666 03:06, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

File:Wade michael page police handout.png at FFD[edit]

The image File:Wade michael page police handout.png is relisted twice in FFD into the 2017 October 19 log. I invite you to comment there. --George Ho (talk) 07:47, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Not sure what this has to do with firearms at all. ansh666 09:14, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Move discussion[edit]

There is a requested move discussion ongoing at Talk:9×19mm Parabellum#Requested move 22 October 2017 that members of this project may be interested in. Jenks24 (talk) 09:57, 30 October 2017 (UTC)

Colt AR-15[edit]

Predictably, there are editors coming to the Colt AR15 article, trying to add in criminal use info about "AR15's". Niteshift36 (talk) 18:36, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 15:40, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

RFC related to NRA article[edit]

There is a new RFC on the NRA article's talk page. [[2]] Springee (talk) 04:48, 6 December 2017 (UTC)

There seem to be a move to call the NRA a racist organization because they didn't immediately condemn a police shooting to satisfaction of anti-police, anti-gun, anti-NRA writers. I encourage everyone to comment of the NRA talk page.[[3]] --Limpscash (talk) 05:42, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
