Why YOU should Get interested in World War II re-enacting

[IMG][/IMG]

I donno? Should you?

Do you like realistic combat simulations using airsoft guns?

Do you like accurate gear and equipment?

Do you like tight knit units employing accurate tactics with effective, experienced leaders?

Are you looking for something more than " weekend skirmishes" or "Ghost Recon" wanna-bes?

Are you interested in HISTORY?

[IMG][/IMG]

Are you a little tired and maybe bored with " regular airsoft"

maybe what you are looking for is a deeper experience with a lot more to it than 6 hours of "pew pew"

What about an experience in which shooting is part of the whole experience, not the point of it?

Maybe you have been seriously thinking about giving up on Airsoft?

You know what, maybe you should! Maybe it's time to move on to a more fulfilling and immersive experience, and learn something along the way.

There are British, Canadian and American units always looking for new recruits. There are also German units looking to mentor and foster your journey into a whole new realm of Battle simulation. Loaner gear and guns available, along with a open and welcoming attitude.

You should try it, you just may like it and discover a whole new community you never knew existed.

Do you want to know more?

Not sure if Brian mentioned it, but the outfits are downright bad ass too!

I'm considering getting back in, if anyone decides to put together a Russian WWII faction, it'd take some time, but I'm in. If not, I might just do it myself.

Keep pushing this stuff Brian, I'm hoping to come out and see you guys at some point this season, see what I'm missing out on as a kick in the ass to get a move on it :P

Yeah it's cool. But I already know who wins lol

We used to do WW2 games back in the day and they were always fantastic, despite the obvious lack of era kit from most people, the rules the hosts made up for more realism were fresh and made the game much more enjoyable!

That's in works right now. I already have a line on real soviet made gear from back home. Best thing about doing soviets that gear is real deal and it's dirt cheap

Too bad I am too busy at work and family and cannot always attend the activities and events, which are full of fun.

Hopefully they can have more one day events which are closer to Toronto.

After hearing Brian, and a few others, talk about the WWII community and games, it's been something I've wanted to try out for a while. I don't have much interest in playing WWII (I enjoy being a Ghost Recon wannabe), but the style of play, and the players themselves, have made it really appealing.

I don't have the money to start moving towards any sort of WWII loadout, but the prospect of loaner gear sounds appealing to try it out. Maybe sometime this summer. =D
