Writeups.org has a number of “Weapons Locker” articles.

The name references a 1980s supplement for the old Marvel Super-Heroes Role-Playing Game by TSR.

They’re not lists of game stats – though there is a lot of stats. They are closer to a guided tour about weapons and their role in action-adventure stories.

The header of this article references a small running gag throughout the modern firearms Weapons Locker articles. Where Angelina Jolie is demonstrating an improbable variety of guns.

All these articles are part of the “Weapons locker” subcategory, in the categories breadcrumb near the beginning of each article.

  • Weapons locker – Bows. Covers bows, arrows and accessories ancient and modern. No crossbows yet, though.
  • Weapons locker – The Quick Missiles Essay. Provides stock stats for the main missile and warheads types. It’s a short article but has suited all our needs so far.
  • Weapons locker – Old West firearms. Covers the guns used in movies, comics, novels, etc. set in the Old West — the decades that follow the Civil War.
  • Weapons locker. That was the last evolution of the original article. It covered a lot of ground – albeit in a shallow manner. So there is still material in it that has yet to be covered by more modern articles. But it’s really old.
