    Well, that may be. I've already tipped my hand that I'd taken a shortcut, but that was by design. I gotta agree with Bill that there isn't really much reason to sew a haversack, at least for most...

    Discreet texting in the privacy of your own tent, or reading on an e-device late at night doesn't bother me. Frankly, it's safer for the rest of us than reading by candlelight. If someone can't sleep...

    I dunno, Ross. Maybe I really am more competent than I give myself credit for being. It just didn't seem that hard. On the other hand, I had the buckle and strap already; I didn't put a liner in it,...

    Yeah. Unless you have a quantity of canvas on hand already, and really like to sew, it's not worth it. I happened to have the strap and buckle from an old haversack, and it was before the internet...

    What do you guys do to attract such trouble? :) I was just thinking that I have rarely felt more safe than I did during those engagements.

    Confederate Sketchbook has a very easy and common Hackensack pattern. I've made it myself and I am clueless around needles and thread. A word, though, if you make it, assemble first, then paint the...

    The ones in the Confederate Sketchbook button on and were originally made from a fairly light fabric. They might serve well as others have described. You know, those foot problems are why I always...

    That's an interesting thing to hear. Being a short soldier, I felt that I was pretty well covered in the trench. I think I dug more that weekend than the summer I was 21 a few miles south in...

    I've wanted to attend Bentonville for 20 years, and it was worth the wait. Excellent, well-organized event all around. I enjoyed both days scenarios. That's the first time in all my years reenacting...

    Yes! Goal! Goal! Goal! I'm so glad, for you and maybe all of us, that you got a same deal. Enjoy.

    If you are looking for a first tent, I would get a dog tent, also called a shelter tent. They're cheaper. They pack better in a car since the longest pole is only about 6 feet. Even less if you make...

    I accept that that's what the going rate seems to be, but it also seems to be artificially inflated. It seems more like scalping than real market pricing. I think those guys holding out for a $2,000...

    Kinda depends on my mood. If I want adventure, "Major Dundee" is my choice. Knowing that Sam Peckinpaw made Charlton Heston so angry that he charged the director with a saber has to count for...

    This thread is 9 years old,almost to the day. If you wrote a check and it's still outstanding, I'd stop payment, consider it lost and order from someone who is currently advertising.

    It just seems odd to me that a 20 year old reference book, mostly pictures, not text, could possibly cost more to own than it would cost for me to drive to North Carolina and look at a reference...

    Mrs. L: I do most of my WW2 reenacting during what is often the grumpy season for black powder reenacting. Keeps me from getting grumpy. I think that may also be one of the changes in the hobby. The...

    It's an organizer function, but it's also a unit function. Leadership needs to police the ranks of their own. I know I would take "put your phone away or use it in the Sutlery area" a lot better from...

    I'll second the barrel band tightening solution. A couple thin leather shims between the Barrel and stock will fix it right up. I use hair rolling papers for rolling cartridges. They come in a box of...

    I call or text home when I arrive and tell them I'm in "listening silence." The sound is turned off, vibrate is off. I'll check from time to time, but I won't be instantly available until I'm on the...
