I honestly don't know what to do.

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.

Besides, no one ever checks this shit anyway.

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.

Alright so I just gfot off the phone with Justis. This is information that is relevant to the Dutch:

The exemption from the LAw on Weapons and Ammunuitions for 'classical firearms' (produced prior to 1870) only applies to handing over (overdragen), transportation, possession and having access to (voorhanden hebben) the firearm in question. Usage, modification e.g. do NOT fall under this exemption, so a permit is required.

This not only seems to apply to actually firing the weapon but also using it on an event anyway...

I know, that's not what I meant. Some events only grant permits that allow us to shoot on the event terrain with the specific demand that all re-enactors are members of LPLG groups (or are foreigners). Loevestein, for example, does this. Mind you, the Dutch 85e breaks this law all the time, but that's not really the point.

Yes but isn't the 85e part of the LPLG, so for me it wouldn't matter... another story with you though =P It doesn't change the status of firearm regulation...

Also I don't think it completely circumvents the issue anyway.

The only way they can check in what year the weapon has been made is by checking the barrel inscription... So long as the weapon has been produced before 1870 it's excempted from the WWM.



EDIT: to be sure I am live on the phone with the Government infromation desk =P

EDIT EDIT: He didn't know, he directed me to Justis, a government legal advise bureau where you can go for questions about the WWM, and where you get the weapon permits

Sounds like a good deal then, to get an original... I'll definitely consider it.

Can I buy a cheap shitty one and replace pretty much everything? I don't know how much the law cares about the Theseus Paradox  ;D
Anyway cheers for the offer, I will certainly consider this

Problem is that if I'd have an event in Belgium, I'd need to go from the south all the way north and then back, just to get my weapon =| not very practical and ti is something I need to start thinking about considering I registered last August

My ancestors went through the whole of Belgium in a week while being shot at by your ancestors, I'm sure you'll be able to do it in much less time considering your current position.

Yes but your ancestors didn't have to care about the time as much. And I am not talking about South-Netherlands. The distance I'd have to cross is 700km in half a day.

Money is not an issue I have, so no, my fears weren't financial. What you say does change my mind though... I'll be sure to look into buying shoes as soon as it becomes relevant..

My biggest issue right now is getting a weapon's permit... I would only have my parent's place to store it.... I can't do it where I actually live considering the DoD only allows weapons to be stored in military-grade safes (which includes safety features a good deal more substantial than what is prescribed by law - I would have to build a seperate building for it, in short) and I also cannot store it in the safes we already have, because they won't allow non-service firearms to be stored alongside service firearms.

Problem is that if I'd have an event in Belgium, I'd need to go from the south all the way north and then back, just to get my weapon =| not very practical and ti is something I need to start thinking about considering I registered last August

I don't need period shoes to know the feeling of historically accurate hurting feet....

For real it would be one of two things I don't really feel a lot of pressure to do 100% perform... next to sleeping outside...


OKay maybe that comparison is a bit off... I bring a sleeping bag and prefer to sleep in a tent purely out of comfort as I don't like to volunteer to be cold or wet for a hobby (I also don't like it for work though :P). shoes to me are not just a thing for comfort... If it's wet, your feet will remain so for an entire weekend, which is not entire good for your feet. The shoes have no support whatsoever (for someone who needed a long time of walking in modern boots to get rid of walking on the inside of my foot, that is a problem) and I am 99% certain accurate shoes won't actually fit properly, which doesn't really help any of the points I made before... I need to take care of my feet as I will still probably need them when I am 45 and considering the line of work I have chosen for myself I try and take care of my feet as much as I can...

Olafson hasn't been working on BCoF for at least a year. He has been busy cleaning his muskets after I forced him to.

It was the first time they'd been cleaned since their creation in the 18th century so he's been taking a while.
