I will be traveling from North Carolina to New Jersey this weekend for Monmouth courthouse. Am I allowed to transport my musket in the vehicle without ending up in pound me in the ass prison? Do I need to disassemble the lock?
Also: post your reenacting/living history pictures.

>>38235484

Keep it in a locked case and you'll be fine.
>>
>>38235499
I don’t have a 6 foot long case tho. Would the trunk count?
>>
>>38235484
NJ law states that a firearms may only be transported to and from a place of residence to a gun store/range and that the weapon must be in a locked case, in a addition to any ammunition being stored in a separate vehicle compartment.

Just keep it locked up and out of sight. If you get pulled over do not consent to a search.

NJ doesn't have a sense of humor about this shit. Stay out of this shithole state.

I reckon as long as the car is locked and it's covered up you should be in the clear.

NJ here. Call a lawyer up here first, but I'd say no. A fucking bb gun requires a permit up here. Save me.

>>38235484
Black powder long arms are exempt. Pistols need to be locked.

Did you just post on the Association of American Rev War reenactors? Just keep it wrapped/cased and don't brandish it about. Its not a problem unless you make it a problem.

>>38237600
Because burning powder is fun. Reenactments are one thing, but we also have tacticals. Flanking, formation, volley speed etc, all have rules. Being fired upon drives your unit back several meters. Being charged by bayonet without being ready to receive does the same. Forcing the enemy off the field and taking objectives wins the day. Unit cohesion, force multupliers and good drill make it possible.

>>38237921

>>38235484
IIRC highway law says that as long as you're legal to possess a firearm in the place you're starting and ending your journey and keep it out of immediate reach, you should be good.

I always wondered how that worked.
>>
>>38239319
Can you go into more detail about the tactical stuff? Like >>38239386 said I have no idea how it works but I've always wanted to get involved. I've seen in videos and movies showing guys actually firing on one another and cannon being used but I assumed it was like blank firing and meaningless. How do you call "hits" or is it all basically judgement calls from the sidelines when you meet an objective?

We use powder but no ball.
If the event is public then we go off of a script for the most part to try and approximate what happened historically
>>
>>38239386
>>38240113
Not OP, but in WWII tactical's, we have our simple objective (defend or attack) and our NCO's plan out how to pull it off.
When taking hits, we use the "honor system" and have referees that call out hits.
>>
>>38240145
Yeah but doesnt that lead to dumb fucks trying to be heroes? And you just keep shooting till you're out or an end is called?

>>38240149
That kind of makes sense, just seems difficult to play along to me. Maybe it's different when you're actually there doing it
>>
>>38240505
>And you just keep shooting till you're out or an end is called?
Because it feels stupid. We call those "powder burners." If I ever shoot more than 10 rounds at a reenactment, I feel like something really stupid has gone down.

Its very much honor system based for tacticals. Some events use casualties, but as mentioned, other just forced your unit back. If we manage to fire volley or charge your unit before you're able to prepare to receive, then your unit has to break and reform X yards in the direction we push you. If we push you out of bounds, you're out. We want to push you away from objectives to hold. If my unit pushes you back, while another flanks you, you can get absolutely fucked, and might even disrupt your fellow units cohesion. Same for cannon, etc.

Pic is a project im working on... They make a nice pop and a lot of smoke

Whats your next event? Me and the fellas at work are BSing the idea as 80th Lights, using our work issued kit for Greensprings next year.

Where did you fags get you musket and such for this. All of the black powder long guns in my area are prohibitively expensive, even heavily used repros. I just wanna shoot bp guns man, not drop $2k+ on a smokepole
>>
>>38240957
Sounds fucking great to do man. I usually watch John Townsend on YT, is there anyway to get involved? I'm down in Georgia and it seems like a great time doing reenactments, like a mass camping with drinking and guns.
>>
>>38243230
We have guys all the way from Florida to Ohio that participate in the 71st. The hardest part is Travel, for instance I’m driving to North Carolina to New Jersey this weekend after I get done with work. Pretty much every unit has gear and uniforms that they loaned the new guys as they put their kit together. I plan on making a new uniform this year in donating my old one to the loaner box. If you’re really interested in joining our next event, my email is burnermail777@yahoo.com

Ah, fucking fucks. It is, isn't it? It's the irony of working at a living history museum: I spend so much time working as an 18thC soldier, I never have time to play as one!

>>38242108
A Pedersoli repro Short Land Pattern Musket (brown bess), shouldn't be much more than $1000. Cabellas, Bass Pro etc.

I cannot stress the importance of value and safety between a real repro gun like a Pedersoli, and a cheap, Indian made GLO.

>>38243230
Townsend is a fucking goober, but he does get respect for being basically the 18thC Walmart.

Look up your local groups on Facebook and introduce yourself! Most have someone who's job is helping new folks, and when have loaner kit.

Avoid most American groups, as they are usually pretty farb and inaccurate. The flip side, is that the lower standards of most American units means you can get away with almost anything until you git gud.

I swear to god though, if you are a beardy pirate toolbag, I am very willing to put on a public demo of corporal punishment.

Is Navy arms or armi sport any good? They're usually on the cheaper end of the repros I've seen.

A black powder musket is not a firearm I'm the eyes of the law. You'll be fine

I do totally want to join but I'm srsly broke so unless I can larp as a logistics officer I'm gonna have a rough go of it

Jersey we're talking about. People have gotten 10 years for driving with an antique black powder pistol in Jersey. Hell even bb guns are considered firearms and need an fid license to be purchased from a licenced ffl since person to person transfers are illegal

Were always trying to recruit new guys. Between loaner gear and carpooling, it’s possible for a brokefag to do.
As was stated before, the Americans have lower standards, I’ve seen guys wearing nothing but a waistcoat and breeches. 2nd NC or 2nd VA isn’t the worst uniforms, so there’s an idea. You basically have to sew your own uniform for it to fit anyway.

Navy arms is made by Miroku of Japan. They are great.
>>38246352
Operative word: *pistol* long arms are fine. All pistols are considered handguns, and need to be in a locked case separate from ammunition when travelling.

>I’ve seen guys wearing nothing but a waistcoat and breeches.

Don't ever fucking do this. If I meet a /k/omando at an event doing this, I will club them with my musket. Get a goddam rifle shirt or hunting frock. They are cheap and tough, and accepted throughout the war among most colonial units because of it. Pic related: Not impressive, but way better that being in your waistcoat and sleeves.

No syphilis spectacles either.
