So, lets say that I wanted to go to an event in England, I wouldn't be able to fire a musket, unless I had a license?

Thanks for the help;

Yes I think so, you may have to fill some forms in first I dunno how it works i've not owned a musket or pistol before (I own a ppk with the barrel filled in and 80 blanks..it wastes a few mins)

That would have to be one ******************** of an event!

All I'd do is get up, eat, drill, rest, drill. Alot like what the original boys did, drill, drill, drill.

Oh God, I know two captains who would love to go over to the UK for some events. Drill is up thier alley with a capital D! I'd swear one was Casey reincarnated.

have you ever seen Glory?

"that Col. Shaw, he a hard man," change shaw into my captain, and your there. If you ever come accross the pond, I'd be glad to introduce you to either of the men I'm thinking of. By the time their done with you (day and a half doesn't seem too harsh) you won't screw up.

Not that there hard, they just love drill. To steal from Ron White "They're the kind of people that think drilling is a fun thing. They get together with other drillers and talk about drilling, they go home and watch the first half of "Full Metal Jacket" and fondel themselves"

Hi Chris,
To shoot at one of our events, you would need a visitors firearms licence cost of which is a paultry 12.00 about $16.00 at the current rate.If any of you get this side of the Pond drop us a line, we WILL give you a good time.
As for Drill the Volunteer Company and Lazy Jacks eat, drink, sleep, dream, and live Drill no Offence intended here but I know we can safely say we can drill with the best you've got, and probably out drill the rest, Hardee's, Casey's, Scotts, and Gilhams you name it, and probably a couple more in between Including Dal Bello's.We can even stack arms using three different methods including Scotts three rank system which we learned just for fun.
Our only problem over here is distinct lack of Sutlers.

Regards.
