Hey Stacie ,

I am in early tonite(rather work on my rifle than socialize with the people I got stuck with) , and I read your post. Perhaps I had misunderstood your previous post , or to state it better , drew an incorrect conclusion from it. I do not fit the typical physique of that era as I am 6'1" and 185 lbs , which would have made me abit tall for that era , as I am sure that your cronies rather large uniform collection reflects that fact. You never stop learning is the point that I wish to impart to you , and not to be afraid to do your own thing if you wish to , or become unhappy with a certain unit. I know people who have done reenactments since the 70's , and even they learn a thing or 2 at times. I am sure that someday you will have enough knowledge to fill the carrier I am sorry to hear that(if I hear you correctly) there is a rift within the CHS. I used to pay dues to it since I was in the 12th SS , and am sorry that they are having troubles....hopefully everything will work out....Lord knows you already have those socialist gun laws in CA to deal with

What did I say in my previous post? Anyway - yeah, its a shame that this whole mess is going on.

Tommorow is the big show down at Naperdak in San Jose. I plan on wearing my hbts not my WAC outfit cuz I don't want to be caught in the cross fire!

My friend also in the group said he is going to give me a navy pin to put on my HBTs.

Yes I am running yellow! They have all the artillery on their side!!!

I have only done the sit around at events stuff and waiting to get into a battle scenario.
....then you said this.....

I did not leave the group but now I have to see what is planned. I have a feeling its more dances and events but thats o.k. with me.
That is why I drew the conclusions I did....but it is cool , soak up whatever you can....it is alot of fun...all of it(especially the battles )...especially if you get to re-enact with motivated former Rangers in your unit who don't like to sit around and play sniper games.....then the hobby is a blast!!

What I meant was although I would like to do battles, I don't think there is much opportunity so I will do the events until something comes along thats more exciting...

Do you need more milbucks? Cuz Im loaded.. I could spare you a few - provided you pay me back at 20% interest daily compounded. Just kidding! I think you do need more moola and I can give you some.

I finished installing a new buttstock on my SLR last night , and I am going to my Uncle's ranch and test fire it. Thanks for the offer for the bucks....perhaps that is the issue , but when I keep trying to change my profile it answers that I gave an incorrect password....which is wrong , it IS the right word....so I think there may be a systemic error....I even changed my password , and it still says so with the new one....

At first I thought you said you installed a new BUTTOX! Wow, if only it were that easy! If you are having problems talk to Mark or Redneck they can help you!

No problems here . This SLR is a champ!! The gas cycle was easy to determine. I thought the sights were a little low at 25 yds , but at 100 I got a good group and was able to zero it in nicely. I cleaned what needed to be cleaned , slowly but surely I will be able to take it down into small pieces and put it back together....thanks for the references though.
