Sutlers and Information

Here is a list of Sutlers that I have used and am pleased with. I have updated it by removing those sutlers who have questionable practices or who have mislead people getting into the hobby. Remember to check with a vetran BEFORE you purchase ANYTHING! Not all sutlers have your best interests in mind and they'll openly sell you crap both verbal and in materials) to line their pockets.

C & C Sutlery

I once bought the Current Special, its a great price. You can't beat it for starting out. It fills a needed niche in the hobby and is a good way to get started fast. however it is NOT for those who want the best in authenticity.

DIXIE is a good source for everything you could imagine.
