i ordered a blank adapter but i hate for this idea even to be in my head but if for some reason it is not in by next Friday and there is not one i could barrow i'll end up doing german.........anyway i hope to be with u guys but i'll see you there
I'm planning on being there, but I don't think I'll get my carbine adapted in time. Does anyone have an extra rifle? I have plenty of 30.06 blanks.
Also, I if anyone lives in the Atlanta area and wants to carpool, give me an email.
Nate- I always have one extra M1 blank adaptor in my cleaning kit! It will be there if you need it.
Anyone know if Glen or Brandon is attending?
...aaand I have a friend who may be interested in coming along to try it out. Would be have enough to put together another impression?
I have a blank adapter as well. We need troopers. So, please do not bring your Jerry stuff.
I have a Garand that you can borrow. I also have a blank adapted carbine that you can borrow. I will let you use everything but the stock and wood. I do not want the stock beat up. If you have the stock, etc. then you can use it. Your friend is welcome to use which ever one you do not want to. You will be completely responsible for both weapons. By this I mean, that you will be responsible for making sure I get both weapons back in working order and in a similar condition. You will be responsible for cleaning them also - so bring your cleaning kits. I hate to be a hardass about this but I have a lot invested in both weapons. Do you have enblocs and enough blanks for both weapons? I do not know what else your friend needs to borrow. Let me know. I have some equipment. So, let me know. I ask one other thing, send me an email on next Thursday to remind me to pack them.
I have extra carbine and M1 Stocks- tell me what to bring!
I also have an extra helmet!
My M1 stock is okay to use bring the carbine stock. Tommy, is this what you need?
I got clips and blanks for a garand so that'll do.
As for my friend, I'll need to check with him and see if he's coming, but I won't see him until later this week. I'll bring the carbine stock for him to use.
Thanks for the help!
I will plan on bringing my carbine in case.
Can't wait to see the "Dogs". Andy, now I know what you go through to attend. I'm packed and ready to SP after Lab tomorrow. I should be on site around 0800 Friday.
It will be good to see you. I have a new toy to show you. Check the website for the event. I think the site does not open until noon or so.
Hope you all took photos if so send em to Dnkosovo@aol.com
By the way it sucks over here...just in case you wanted to ask.
Heady, I do have some pictures but not alot. I will send what I have though. The Germans quit on us at about 1400. I guess they did not like being on the offensive the whole time. We did manage to complete all of our missions successfully. Take care.
Man I hate when that happens...why even go to the reenactment if you leave that early...
