I hope everyone who goes will have a good time. Its way too close to finals week here for me to be taking a weekend off to go to a reenactment. But I hope everyone thats does go has a good time. Bring back lots of pics guys!
This is the major starting point for the year for the blank-burners. Our first outside event. This is the place to be, and just don't show up, be a part of it. We can all fit right in. I learn something new everytime and I have been doing this for years. Now I drive one of the vehicles for the US 70th Tank Bat. and guess what I carry with me. Right! an airsoft gun, the M3 grease gun. So be there!

Despite bumpy weather here and there and a chilly saturday night, things went really well at Lowell, lots of units were there in grand fashion, planes were skimming the field of battle, horses were out in large number, and for once the hosts (in this case Buckley Homestead) had more praise than complaint.
This doesn't meant there aren't some interesting stories, but at the very least no one's HRS membership is in question this time around.

Some men aren't looking for anything logical. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
Always Carry Rope. You'll never know why you need it, but you'll always end up needing it.
I had a good time, During the first battle on Sat one of the SS guys thought he'd be cute to pull a pistol and shoot at us as he was surrendering, "killing" me. I found out I act shot pretty good. "They shot the medic!" ;D

Hey phantom watch what you say about halftrack drivers, next time you are stumbling over corn stalks and need a ride. It's not easy driving a vehicle you can walk faster than. If you can't keep up with it go back to your walker and old folks home. See you up at Poplar Grove......walking!
Cary if that was you sorry man. All armored vehicles are suppose to have ground guides because the drivers can't see anything except straight ahead. Hate to say it but it is one of the hazards of being close to an armored vehicle. Were targets! The closer you stay the more of a chance your going down. I really try hard not to drive over the dead. Roll away next time. I owe you one.
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.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

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.
