    The MILSURP HQ Guide to WW2 Reenacting with our special guest World War Wisdom!

    We grabbed one of the BEST resources on the internet, World War Wisdom, to fill us in on everything there is about WW2 reenacting-- including things like RE history, the different types, signing up, gearing up and gear authenticity, finding a unit, rules and regulations, safety, firearms & blank firing, receiving & taking orders, tactics, shooting, dying & respawning, accidents, thieves, post-event parties, veterans, tanks & jeeps, explosives, grenades & mortars... you get it now, we get into it all! 
     
     
    Plus we find out how our guest got started (*spoiler he was 8!) and we get some great advice on everything from finding a good group to where to grab the best gear to look the part.
     
     
    We somehow talk about even more things, and kept the poor guy for about 3 hours, but we wanted to be thorough, so definitely give this one a listen, you will learn a lot and most likely want to give it a try!

    We round out the show with another round of MILSURP TRIVIA, and playing with CHATGPT to ask MILSURP and Movie opinions, even getting it to plan our very first MILSURP HQ MOVIE! (COMING SOON!)
