daniel bowditch depends on who or what you want to re-enact?
you do not need to have proof to buy a deact and can use this.much better to have a deactivated real weapon than a replica unless price rules this out.
as for proof you would need to have PLI(public liability insurance) and would have to attend events regular to prove your not just trying to get this to buy weapons.search for AFRA as being a member of them you would receive a membership card to show your a bonefide reenactor.
find a group that suits what you want to do and they will advise you on what steps to take.attend events and speak to groups to see who you suit.
but as I said you can buy a deact without any proof.
hope this helped
daniel bowditch thanks all for being really helpful
