Is the usual semi-OCD way, I often get caught up in the details of movies.

I wonder if anyone can point me to something along the lines of moviemistakes.com, but specifically related to guns in the movies.

That is, (a) which characters have what sort of guns, and (b) optionally, notes on their use. (Is a hero shown firing 26 times from a revolver without reloading? etc.)

There are some movies for which a thorough accounting would probably take more words than the screenplay, I realize, but I suppose in that sort of movie (Saving Private Ryan, perhaps) I'd be more interested in anomalies than listing the 10,000 people with M1s ;)

Watching "V for Vendetta" just now has reminded me of the minor obsession ;)

^^^This will go a long way in bringing out all the details of 'who has what', and it occasionally points out any obvious mistakes. Search about any movie. They have quite the selection.

And there's your film, specifically :-) Plenty of HK's.

I love IMFDB, it great to check when your wacthing a movie and cant tell what a type of gun you just saw flash across the screen, or if your doing a little drinking with your buds and wacthing a action movie and everyone disagrees about what gun you just saw

While you are there, check out the custom guns in Romeo + Juliet:
