Last night at the Northwest Film festival I watched an 80 minute documentary covering a group in Oregon who do Vietnam Reenacting and several of their members have attended local WW2 Airsoft events over the years. It was fun to watch as I know several of the people in the film as it turns out. The film initially when they decided to do it was going to focus on why people would do such a thing as Vietnam Reenacting and indeed that subject is explored but when they discovered that several of the members are currently in the military and in the course of the six years of filming had deployed and come back they were especially confused by that and explored in greater depth that angle.
The result is a fascinating film which covers our hobby quite even handedly and in some way poses more questions than it answers. It was a film that made me laugh, made me cry and certainly made me think which in my book makes it a great film. Interestingly it won as best film at the festival and looks like it will end up cutting a netflix deal. If so I highly recommend it. It is called IN COUNTRY. You can probably see a trailer for it by googling it.

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.
