- thanks you,
I'm Japanese and not good at English, so I'm sorry if I'm saying too directly or impolitely.
Reasons I made this cat was,
- Same categories are already exists some languages, for example, en:Category:Firearms by caliber, ja:Category:口径別の火器, es:Categoría:Armas de fuego por calibre, and these are actually used.
- Same aim cat Category:Artillery by calibre is already exists and actually used. It is my understanding that over 20 mm caliber projectile weapons are "Artillery", and less than 20 mm caliber projectile weapons are "Firearms" .(is this understanding specific and peculiar to Japanese people only?)
- @Sanandros, Brakeet: The reason for this category is as an index of categories which group firearms by caliber, such as its one sub Category:7.62 mm firearms. However, only having one sub means it isn't very useful. Perhaps merge with the existing Category:Artillery by calibre into something like Category:Projectile weapons by calibre?

- I don't like that then pictures are in this category. If we say only galleries are allowed I would not have a so much a problem but if we say also categories and with that also pictures are allowed in this cat then we have for example the problem that Desert Eagel pistols are in diffrent calibres like we have here a .44 Magnum calibre while this is a .357 Magnum calibre.--Sanandros (talk) 04:20, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
