By the way I have a complete FJ load out and a Brit/CDN Para load out. All I need are helmets. The problem is my head is size 63 or 7 and 7/8s. If anyone see either please let me know.
I think I met Tiker and Tac12. Where there and bought a PPSH? We talked outside on the street for a while.
OP Woodsman!!!! It's in Spencerville, right near Ottawa.

I do encourage anyone with an interest in history and a more immersive experience on the field to give our thing a try. We have a variety of units to choose from and welcome newcomers with open arms and loaner kit.

Do any of the units in the London area have any dates set up to play in this area? If so I'd like to come check it out.

I joined this group back in Aug when i first got into airsoft, im telling you boys it the best decision i made last year. its a great community and a chance to share or learn some history, but dont listen to me find out for yourself. There is a Level 2 game on March 1st in which all the details can be found on website Brian provided. If you cant make that come out to TAC 14 on March 15th and check out our displays, allied and axis ..... we will have uniforms,weaopons and gear to show.

Also as they have stated there are many units to choose from allied and axis.... but if WWII regular U.S infantry is your style check out the 1st Infantry Division Ontario Living History Group, dedicated to honoring the men of the "Big Red One" in WWII

http://1stdivisionontariolivinghistorygroup.webs.com/

https://www.facebook.com/pages/1st-I...19967654688488

Like i said which ever group you choose you cant go wrong all are here to share the same passion !

Id like to weigh in here.
being into both fitness and ww2 history re-enactment worked out perfectly for me.
are we running and gunning the whole time. no way. are we reliving what it was like for guys on both sides in the greatest conflict in human history....yes.
are we always rotating new guys thru who don't care. no way,
are we building solid friendships yes.
Do we have command structure with the knowledge and
commitment to build solid foundations... defiantly.
do we burn some serious calories....you better believe it. (as a side note...I ran tough mudder at 46 and this leaves me pooped at end of day)

here is some of what we experience......

midnight sentry duty in forest. dead quiet except for wind rustling leaves. knowing 1000% that there be no way the allies could creep to this position with out being heard 100 yards away but telling your buddy you heard them at 10 feet outside the trench.

THAT IS A TOTAL MIND F--K

Lots of talk in various threads on this forum about the nature of "MILSIM"

I got into airsoft to do Military Simulation.

I've participated in dozens of "milsims" and I have hosted, developed and run dozens more.

But I never did a "real" milsim till I got involved in WWII re-enactment. For me everything else ( and I still do lots of Modern style Milsim) just does not measure up to the immersion and the feelings of reality that are the hallmarks of WWII events.

can you please develop a bit if you have the time?
what is a typical day of successful wwII milsim?
what kind of action do you encounter, in what order, how are the radio comms, is it serious-serious or serious-jokingly, etc
