Radio Chatter / Re: Neil Peart dead at 67

Stumbled across a unique tribute from the US Army Band. A very noticeable lack of percussion...

Time Stand Still

SFC Whalen relfects, "The lyrics to this song have always resonated deeply with me, and they show Neil’s heart. I wanted to showcase the deep humanity he had in his writing. The song is about life moving too fast, due to both things we can control and things we can’t, and the desire to hold onto something just a little longer. This is such a universal message, whether it be children growing up too fast, a loved one dying, or a soldier leaving home wondering if they’ll ever see their family again.”

Some funny videos of conversations with protestors out there.
Not quite sure what's in the pipes, where it comes from or where it's going but they sure are standing in solidarity.

All this will happen in April with the Best Ranger competition,Best Mortar comp, international sniper, and combatives. There are around 30 shooting teams. Maybe there is a Canadian entry ?

Are we not following, WRT defence, the cheap and easy now and for the past decades?

More like 'politically expedient but on the cheap'....

Military Administration / Re: Phoenix Pay System - crap's Horrible

I looked into the class action. It's only for casual employment and students. Any terms or perms are not able to join the class action as we have the  grievance process.

For my case, it didn't help at all. I ended up just going on a payment plan.

Sigh..

Anyone remember Jim Bakker? ( Convicted and sentenced to federal prison for eight counts of mail fraud, 15 counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy. )

The comments under the video are pretty hilarious

@draftandbarmy:

Not arguing sovereignty.  Global role or importance?  Not necessary outside of the margins of the great powers.  There's a role there but Canada will never be more than a good ally, who shows up with helpful capabilities and leadership for things the US doesn't want to do.

Thanks. I have a permit to carry but I think I can find a US dealer that will ship the firearm to a dealer in Anchorage and avoid the problems I would face in Canada. Thanks

Your pistol will be either a Restricted or Prohibited Firearm.  Any pistol magazine with over a 10 round capacity will be a Prohibited Device.

From the Canadian Border Services Agency website: https://cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publications/dm-md/d19/d19-13-2-eng.html

For Restricted Firearms:
Licensed non-residents

99. Non-residents may import restricted firearms into Canada or may move them in transit through Canada if they have:

    (a) a valid purpose for importing the firearms;
    (b) a valid Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) or Possession Only Licence (POL) authorizing possession of that class of firearm;
    (c) a valid registration certificate for the firearm; and
    (d) a valid Authorization to Transport (ATT).

100. If the non-resident does not have all of the documentation listed above for the restricted firearm(s) they wish to import, they must:

    (a) have a valid purpose for importing the firearms;
    (b) have a valid Authorization to Transport (ATT);
    (c) complete a Non-resident Firearm Declaration (RCMP 5589) and, if applicable, a Non-resident Firearm Declaration Continuation Sheet (RCMP 5590);
    (d) pay the confirmation fee; and
    (e) have the form confirmed by the border services officer for either: the length of the ATT; or, 60 days, whichever is shorter.
    (f) Once confirmed, in this case, the NRFD acts as a temporary registration for the firearm(s) listed.
    Note: The confirmation fee is valid for 60 days from the date of payment and covers all firearms on the declaration. On any subsequent importation within the 60 day period of the same restricted firearm(s), the border services officer will match the firearm(s) to the original NRFD and check the validity of the ATT, but no additional fee is payable. If the non-resident does not have the ATT, CBSA may hold the firearm for 40 days while the non-resident satisfies the outstanding documentation requirements. Non-residents must make bona fide efforts to obtain the missing documentation as quickly as possible. Storage and transportation charges may apply.


For Prohibited:
Personal importations by non-residents

105. Non-residents may not import prohibited firearms. This includes movements in transit through Canada.


For Prohibited Device:

Personal importations by residents, non-residents, settlers, temporary and former residents

140. Residents, non-residents, settlers, temporary and former residents may not import prohibited weapons or devices.


So you cannot bring in a prohibited pistol and you cannot bring in a magazine with more than a 10 round magazine.
Best bet is to send it to a FFL in Alaska and pick it up there.

Bit more:
Definition of a Prohibited Firearm:
Prohibited Firearms

7. Prohibited firearms include most automatic, military firearms, and short-barrelled handguns. Prohibited firearms are:

    (a) handguns that:
        (i) have a barrel equal to or less than 105 mm (approximately 4.1 inches) in length; or
        (ii) are designed or adapted to discharge a 25 or 32 calibre cartridge, unless these handguns are listed in the Regulations Prescribing Exclusions From Certain Definitions of the Criminal Code (International Sporting Competition Handguns), and are for use in international sporting competitions governed by the rules of the International Shooting Sport Federation;
    (b) firearms adapted from rifles or shotguns, whether by sawing, cutting, or any other alteration, and that as adapted are:
        (i) less than 660 mm (approximately 25.74 inches) in length; or
        (ii) 660 mm (approximately 25.74 inches) or more in length but have a barrel less than 457 mm (approximately 17.82 inches) in length.
    (c) automatic firearms, even if they have been altered to discharge only one projectile with each pull of the trigger; or
    (d) any firearm that is prescribed to be a prohibited firearm as listed in the Regulations Prescribing Certain Firearms and Other Weapons, Components and Parts of Weapons, Accessories, Cartridge Magazines, Ammunition and Projectiles as Prohibited, Restricted or Non-restricted.
    Note: (b) (i) (ii) Length means total length of firearm including the barrel.


Restricted Firearm:
Restricted Firearms

8. Restricted firearms are:

    (a) handguns that are not prohibited firearms;
    (b) firearms that are semi-automatic, centre-fire, have a barrel less than 470 mm long (approximately 18.33 inches), and are not prohibited firearms;
    (c) firearms that are designed or adapted to be fired when reduced to a length of less than 660 mm (approximately 25.74 inches) by folding, telescoping, or otherwise; or
    (d) any firearm that is prescribed to be a restricted firearm as listed in the Regulations Prescribing Certain Firearms and Other Weapons, Components and Parts of Weapons, Accessories, Cartridge Magazines, Ammunition and Projectiles as Prohibited, Restricted or Non-restricted.


Valid purposes include:

    (a) hunting during the applicable hunting season;
    (b) use in competitions;
    (c) repair;
    (d) re-enactments;
    (e) in transit movement (i.e., moving in the most direct route possible from point A to point B, through Canada); or
    (f) protection against wildlife in remote areas.
