  3. Maps for hiking

    " Oh no, we don't need maps came the reply". A lot of my chums are often on the hill - and do not have a compass - let alone know how to use one. Is this laziness, stupidity or what? The idea of having an emergency ration at the bottom of your pack seems to be an alien concept as well. I am pretty shocked at the slap-dash attitude displayed by a lot of my pals. The mountains can be a very hostile place.
  4. Maps for hiking

    This autumn and winter I feel like getting in some hikes. It has been an age since I did anything serious - and that was in the UK ten years ago. I feel a bit of out touch....   Is there anything available in Germany that approaches the O.S. Landranger 1:50.000 series for quality, clarity and accuracy?   Cheers,   Taff
  5. We have two tickets for The Cure, 24. October, Olympiahalle Munich. Tribune block G2, Row 16, Seat 6 & 7.    Tickets are €79 each, so €158 for both - cash only, can meet in central Munich or Pasing to hand over.    Please PM if you are interested!     
  6. Medieval History Tours

    Due to it being a bit wet today, no tour this evening - some of our original ancient artefacts do not like the wet (Never mind our guides). Since tomorrow is the the last day of the Wiesn we will take advantage of this and try and grab some last bevvies - so we wrap up our tours for the moment.     We hope to offer something grisly for Halloween and later over the Yule period. Watch this space...    Taff

  11. Black powder weapons - licence needed?

    Thank you for your very useful post. I need to go through with my nit comb :-)  
  12. Black powder weapons - licence needed?

  13. Black powder weapons - licence needed?

    Thank you Metall for your reply. Partly it is for my tour guiding work - I am trying to get more into military history tours. Plan is to have a spot somewhere (not of course a public area) where punters could feel the weight of it (not charge and fire it!) and try and try on the kit etc. Partly because I am looking at doing a post-grad in battlefield archaeology.. so yes, it would fall under research. Back in the UK I was heavily involved in the re-enactment scene for many years but gave it up when I moved here. Now that I am settled, this is something I am considering getting back into - so 3 reasons.
  14. Black powder weapons - licence needed?

    It was recently mentioned to me that following a piece of legislation passed some years ago, that black-powder guns - specifically modern replicas of historical muskets - are not classed as weapons and that as such, a licence is not needed - only some sort of agreed/demonstrable competence. Would this be a case for the the "kleinwaffenshein" since it would in effect be a blank-firer?   I will be speaking my local police at some point in the future but I thought I would ask the hive-mind in the first instance.   Thanks in advance,   Taff    
  15. Laser pens/pointers? Legal?

    Thank you Franklan. I was looking at one on ebay - but it is from China... :-(   Will have to get into Saturn..   Taff
