WARNING - im new to these boards, i found it kinda hard to navigate to where i need to be for this question, but if this is in the wrong place, please move it, dear moderators
I was watching some videos on YouTube earlier, and i came across some videos of guys who were taking part in a 100+ man battle for 'carentan', and it was AWESOME, airsoft WWII reeancting looks insanely, and stupidly fun
Im not really passionate about WWII, or the era it took place in, but i do enjoy learning about WWII and the time period, but im worried i wont fit in with the guys who do the reenactments, who are WWII geeks (no offense intended). I just wanna do the reenacting because it looks to be a million times more entertaining than Call of Duty, or Medal of Honor ever will be.
Do you have to be a die-hard history buff to do this kind of stuff, or can you be a regular kid like me who just wants to have fun, and who is tired of trying to have airsoft battles with his 'tard friends, that always disintegrate into one butthurt causing more butthurts.
If anyone lives in the Kansas City, MO area, and either maintains, or is part of a reenactment group in the area, let me know, you may have a new recruit
i'm a regular kid who wants to have fun, it will take patience though to start wwii reenacting, I'm also new and the first thing to do would be get a weapon and a uniform. I recomend for weapon cyma thompson and for uniforms look at atthefront.com
In reenacting, uniform is more important than than a weapon Without a weapon you are still reenacting, but without a uniform you are just skirmishing
First you need to find a unit around Kansas, Missouri . You could always just do what you want though, but the thing about that is your unit might not be in many events, so it's best to find a unit that's already there and. I'm only in high school but I have alot of friends who are into WWII
If you do find a unit you want to do, www.AtTheFront.com is the highest quality site for uniforms that I know of, but they are really expensive. I bought 95% of my stuff from them since I didn't know of another place. Now I'm broke, but here are some ones

I am new to air soft, although I have always been interested in re-enacting, I saw photos of airsoftplayers in the ww2 uniforms, and thought it looked like fun. I would like to know if there are any units in the central Oklahoma area? I would be very interested in joining.
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.
