    Hi there!
    I am living in the neighborhood of Antwerp - Belgium. I am looking for people who are also interested in late 18th Century re enactment ... I was for years in another part of that hobby. Since a few years my interest shifted towards the AWI period .... It doesn't have really to do with that conflict ... militia, farmer, trader or whatever is OK with me. I am into black powder shooting and since two years the proud owner of a really good US made flintlock rifle ... I am building my persona around that ...
    Anybody interested? I'd like to come in contact if you do!

    Hi there! I forgot to look more often to this little place on the site ... wasn't exactly expecting to find kindred spirits! My bad! Where do you shoot? I shoot just over the border in Holland (Clinge)...

    Hello
    I shoot in Leopoldsburg in Belgium . Can shoot there up till 440 yards. But before I shot for Belgian black powder ass. Also at the Clinge. Attended also before there western weekends.
    In fact now Sunday there is a trade market from western stuff in Heusden-Zolder you will find it on internet under COFTAW trade. I have a booth there with 18 century stuff
