While this isn't something written that I have seen wrong but in some reenacting circles the idea that after x date some price of gear, be it khaki color, leggings or some weapons like the 1928 Thompson was no longer used PERIOD. As if all of X was turned into the quarter master. And only the new stuff was used.

How did I miss this thread? I just noticed it. I really can't say that much. I'm not that well versed in the Bulge. It does seem like they maybe overemphasize the rout of American troops at the beginning of the offensive. A lot of units actually put up a pretty stiff resistance but were overwhelmed. Engineer units particularly did a good job blowing bridges in front of the Germans. It wasn't a walk over for the Germans. While everyone knows about the 101st at Bastogne, the 82nd defense of St. Vith was critical to holding the northern shoulder.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
