With some pride, I feel it is now time to inform you guys of my new website, http://www.japaneseammunition.com
Over the past few weeks I’ve made a thorough start with filling it with actual content.
Covered are (and/or “will be”) the following categories:
-Japanese ‘gun’ ammo, calibres 12.7mm and bigger
-…and lots of other stuff!
It is a LOT of work to put everything online, but I feel I now have enough online to start spreading the word. This is one website that will probably never be done, but rather, now content will be posted all the time as it becomes available.
For now, the main focus has been on adding items from my own collection. I’m working my way up on making a complete calibre list for both IJA (currently 12.7-75mm are covered) as well as IJN ammo (13-57mm are covered), and I am filling those pages with the content I have. The items I have added cover all of my present gun ammo, up to (inclusive) the 75x104R calibre. All bigger calibres will be covered still over the next few weeks, including several spectacular new finds which I have incoming on November 7th (the sections that currently already have content will then be expanded too).
It should be noted that I have left those pages of which I have no items yet empty (apart from the page headers). Those pages will later be filled, possibly using content from other peoples’ collections and/or general texts.
For now, just click through the pages listed under the menus: “Army gun ammo” and “Navy gun ammo”, and those that are filled, apart from having sections with common details for the respective type of ammo, also have a trailing section at the bottom of the page (called “Pictures and details”) which contains links to highly detailed items of the specimens in my collection.
Make particularly sure to not miss those sections.
Note: Though there is a login section, this is not required (and currently only used by me to fill the site). All content is publicly available.
I hope you all enjoy your visit, and I’m open for all comments. Also, I’m always looking for ammo of the covered areas (even if I already have several similar specimens). If someone has some Japanese ordnance for sale/trade please let me know (no matter how benign it may seem to you; to me it may not). My direct e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
