Thanks, we've actually added another Ranger&Sf qualified MSGT to the platoon also. About 1/3 of the unit are former SGTs of various sorts, artillery, medics, engineers, etc. Most former Paratroopers. We will be turning out a 30-40 man Parachute Infantry Platoon. Two auto 1919s, a bazooka, and a 60mm mortar. Full complement of radios and field phones, and way more jeeps than even a PIR had ! :-)
We run it like its real and we al have a blast. This site allows night action so it should be great.

The event went well, the location is a bit of a haul and we lost some participants because of that, but it allows 24/7 blank fire so IMO it is worth it once a year.
We ended up with 25 paratroopers,mew ran two squads with 1919s and had a couple guys doing HQ support which was awesome because we had hot meals for every meal !
I'll get some pics uploaded , most aren't action shots as we are picky about having people taking obvious pictures.
The German units in the PNW are pretty well established. They had a lower turnout with 25 guys , I say "lower" as 60-80 is not impossible for them. There is a strong very SS unit that has a full compliment of vehicles to include 222 armored cars . There is also a decent sized Heer unit, not as outfitted as the SS but they field 10-30 guys

Nice! I wish we had those kinds of numbers here in Michigan.

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.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
