Some good advice I got was just to build your kit, show up and re-enact. You will be welcome...every side needs guides and just stick with what you want to do.


Sorry, but that's probably the worst advice anyone has given you.

1. Most events require you to be a member of an insured unit.

2. No event that I've been to or know of allows "walk-ons". Mostly because of insurance reasons.

3. When you find a unit, you may find that you have spent a large sum of $ on things you can't use.

Most units will have some loaner equipment for a new guy. It's worth taking advantage of this before you start buying a bunch of stuff.

David,

If you are still interested in Brant's, check out our website and let me know if I can help.

Mario,

You are entirely correct about participating in the live fire events, needing to be part of an insured group. Safety first!

I think you missed my point though.

Not talking about live fire. I was referring to re-enactments.

I understood your basic point, but implying that one can build a kit and just show up is not plausible in 95% of instances, and should not be given out as advice to new folks.
