We need Marines for 1st Battalion 5th Marines.
We are NOT a normal WWII group, we are dedicated to our Corps and we make sure our Marines are always ready. First you will start with our boot camp which will be 6 days total, the first 3 days will be PT, beach head landing training, and marksmanship, and for the other 3 days you will be put into a real combat simulator where you will reenact landing on the beach and from there spend 3 days and nights in the field,(I will join you) you will only have what you bring so pack: clothes, food, make sure you have two or more canteens and a pup tent with poncho. We are based on the 1st Marine Division during the battle for Peleliu (1944) the first few with be in my weapons squad (Baker squad) and when I have enough Marines, you will be issued to 1 of 2 squads, Able or Charlie. Our purpose is to recreate WWII Marines so that when we go to WWII Weekend or anyplace else, the vets will look at you, and they will see that you put yourself into that mindset of war, and they will not feel anything but pride, to see an image of them or their friends when they fought. I wan't to create true Marines, this will be held in the summer of 2014 in Tioga County, PA. You can not be over weight, and must be able to run 1.5 miles under 13 mins. This is NOT a real Marine boot camp, so there is no yelling but, there is a lot of mud, also, unless you cut, bruise, or bleed VERY easily, you will not be hurt, if anything it is going to be fun. If you have a question, even if you think its stupid, leave it in the comments.
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

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.
