Congratulations on deciding to get involved with World War II Reenacting! This is a rewarding hobby with great comraderie, but the price tag can seem daunting to new members. While we have a list of approved vendors and you can buy brand new items from them, we have developed some tips and a little bit of tradecraft to get the most out of our money.
We are very fortunate that one of our most seasoned vets, Jesse Martin, has put together a “how to” guide for buying on a budget. This is a handy guide on where to look, what to expect, and what to ask for when you’re searching for your gear. We have provided it as a downloadable document below. As always, if you have a question, check with your mentor. We are here to help!
