Besides, no one ever checks this shit anyway.

You are right on that part.

I thought firing fell under the event permit? If not, we might as well stop re-enacting in the Netherlands altogether.

Technically it does not. In most cases, event permits specifically state they only apply to people with licenses and who are part of an LPLG affiliated reenactment unit. It's not an either or system but a checklist of things that all have to be in order.

Until something goes wrong... It seldom does, but you really do not want to be that guy... illegal firearm usage is not something that is generally gotten away with easily.

Aye. But you should be totally fine with purchasing and using an original gun.

Handling blackpowder without license is like 250 euro fine over here in Germany, so its doable. No idea what it is in the NL. Either way, don't shoot in the NL and you are fine. Or get a gun/blackpowder license.

Confiscation of your firearm and your name being included on a list of people that are not allowed to handle firearms at all.

You and I don't have the same definition of a coup.

*gun-cocking sound in the background*


Seriously though, I honestly don't know what to do. The whole situation is just incredibly silly. One man and his personal dislike of me means not being able to re-enact in the Netherlands. I'll admit, I was hoping for a little more support from the rest of the Dutch 85e, but I guess I should have seen it coming anyway.

Can't you just align yourself with another group? State pretty openly you need a gun license but cannot find a Dutch group to align yourself with... if you are prepared to pay contribution for them they might not care.

Wouldn't be the first time things like this happen... this is done in plenty of sports where a license is required to practice it (in fact I am in suich a construction myself)... wouldn't be surprised if this is also the case in Re-enactment.

Idk how it works in the Netherlands but it is possibly to acquire a licence external of a reenactment group for reenactment purposes in the UK (I think), if that is the case, just get it directly, and then you won't have any issues?
