I notice that a lot in print ads-- there was a flyer for Roger McGuinn appearing nearby that had a picture of him playing guitar left-handed, with the name "rekcabnekciR" proudly displayed on the headstock.
That's funny! I remember a Vietnam reenactor type telling me I had my recondo patch on the wrong pocket. He insisted photos showed it on the other side. It never occurred to me that the negatives could be reversed. I explained that it was my original unaltered shirt but he wasn't having any of it. He also said a woodland camo zippered sweatshirt i had was post war and in any event Vietnam was too hot for such a thing to be worn. I asked him when the last time he spent a week in the highlands of central Vietnam?
He backed off a little and suggested that since it wasn't the norm it shouldn't be displayed. My early interactions with living history folks were not positive!
Stalin should have known communism wouldn't work. There were red flags everywhere!"
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.
