After the dirk throwing at MoP's they may want to prove how inacurate pistols are.

"Here ye are. We'll fire 30 shots at you, and you see just how many miss"


Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

Then the guy with the dirks can hold the targe while redcoats demonstrate that it isn't bullet proof.

There are a lot of very scarey Scottish 'Re-enactors'. As well as the Crann Tara site, you should check out this one. Don't open this in public or in front of the weans though!

I know, I know!
Really just the late night wanderings of a middle aged housewife with Jack Sparrow yearnings.
The thoughtful looking one with the long hair and a kilt led me astray momentarily...........hmmmm.
Bikes and loud music too......reminds me of a slightly miss spent youth, I must grow up. (as long as I can still dress in strange clothes, and occasionally dress my gorgeous man as a pirate too, I am a happy camper)

:oops:

I have my own Jack Sparrow - doing some filming last year when he got mistaken, (at a distance admittedly), for Johnnie Depp, and sent a few teenage girls into hyterics! Seriously, there are some really bad groups up here who style themselves re-enactors, but have no interest in history, research or accuracy. Problem is still with the romanticised notion that tourists and tourist boards have about Scots - the more tartan the better!!!
