Bullets Do Not Work That Way is a list of a dozen bullet-related tropes. Although not tagged as an index, it is written like the "Index Of Artistic License Guns tropes".
The issue is that we already have that index, i.e. Guns Do Not Work That Way. It spells out that it's about "guns and ammo", and it makes sense that most gun tropes are also ammo tropes, and vice versa.
Indeed, most tropes listed on Bullets Do Not Work That Way are already on Guns Do Not Work That Way (i.e. Blasting It Out of Their Hands, Concealment Equals Cover, Cartridges in Flight, Disappearing Bullets, Pretty Little Headshots are all duplicated).
It strikes me as sensible to merge these two pages into one index, and move the examples on BDNWTW to the most appropriate subpage.
Sorry to keep you waiting, ~Spark9. The issues presented are enough to open for discussion.
I can support a merge.

Nobody voiced any opposition, so let's go ahead and do the merge.
I'll do the wicks.
Went ahead and moved the pic on Bullets over, as part of the merge.
I'll browse the on-page examples in a moment.

So, if there are examples of BDNWTW that don't really fit into any of the subtropes of GDNWTW (such as on Webcomic.Back), should they be moved to the latter or just deleted?
We can probably delete them or incorporate the example in another example. We could do the latter for the mentioned page. I'll do that.
Update: Looking at some examples on BDNWTW... do we have a trope for impenetrable glass?

In that case, pretty much all the wicks are done. There's one on Series.The Vampire Diaries, a locked page, and I'm not sure what to do with the entries on IReadThatAs.A To F and RenamedTropes.A To E.
Took care of the TVD wick.
While I see about the other two, I'll place the main page examples in a sandbox. That way, I'm sure they'll be ready to transplant wherever is applicable.
Edit: Done. Time to cut and close.

How well does it match the trope?
