I also think most reenactment groups would take umbrage with us calling ourselves reenactors. A true reenactment is about demonstrating a historical event or period; there is no winning or losing, there's no points, there's no respawn. It's not a game. Airsoft is.

When we hold a "historical" op here in Manitoba, the actual event depicted and its outcome are tertiary in nature. The primary focus is on providing a safe and fun environment for people to enjoy. It's also not a public event which is another hole in the reenactment argument because we're firing live projectiles, and there isn't exactly a spectator's area where people can enjoy a smokie and a beer from the bleachers. If we reenact anything it is solely to further our own personal enjoyment of the event by providing an interesting role playing aspect, no more.
