No disrepect of the persons, but as reenactors these guys are grossly oveweight, maybe one is a female. But all need to rethink their image.

I and several friends did a school demo last week for a local private school. We drilled, let the kids try on some stuff. We even had permission to demonstrate loading and firing. It was awesome, educational and dare I say, tasteful. In short, everything this travesty is not. I see little to be gained in recreating the grisly sensationalism of execution anyway, but in our modern day where teachers do indeed get gunned down by whacked out students, I think it's absolutely unconscionable. What in God's green earth were they thinking anyway?!?!?
Thank God my children are homeschooled (and one of them helped us do the demo!)
Totally stupid and unsafe. That is all I am going to say.

One of the stupidest things I've ever seen. It's crap like this that feeds the 'reenactors are idiots' crowd. I don't know what the kids were supposed to learn besides here's what a bunch of dolts that don't know what they're doing think is a great learning tool.

Those are the ones that the TV media reporters find at an event and go interview. Scary isn't it? You bet it is.
We have a hard time as it is conviencing people that we are not ignorant folks that like to dress up for a shoot em up weekend
