With a very attentive audience, placed in a very safe place. I have a very important message to our audiences with regard to their safety. Such as "I have the gunpowder so I am in charge and you obey all my instructions" plus how to protect their ears from the noise and the blast of the guns.
All the weapons shown in our displays are based on our research of the period. We have proof for the weapons shown on the list which gives us dates and who used them.
