Alright, well I apologize for being inflammatory.

I sense that discussing politics bothers you.  I, on the other hand, enjoy expressing my political views, and exercising my free speech.

Without being too judgy, I feel like your response is an attempt to squash opposition to views that you might hold, which is equally as ugly as questioning my motives.

Gotcha. Because there is a clear link between LBTQ2 rights and Sig P225 pistols, huh?

Just go away.

Clearly I've touched a nerve.

Since the inception of message boards, other topics get brought up within the title topic, generally being considered "off topic".  I get it.

I already publicly apologized, and I'm afraid I won't be going away unless the powers that be make that decision.  I'm perfectly entitled to my opinions, and I won't be changing them any time soon.

Seeing as how expressing inflammatory opinions seems to be frowned upon here, I have already agreed to temper my comments.

Have a nice day.

You're peeking at your cards while you're sitting at the table. Little too eager, gave your hand away.

Thanks for understanding.

For the record, firearms are a pretty huge political issue.

I would just like to point out one thing, your right to "free speech" is not as expansive as you think. First, it only guarantees a right to speak free of state interference - not an unalienable right to say whatever you want whenever you want without challenge. Any private person can shut down your speech and they would not be infringing on your Charter Rights. As this is a private site, the site owner can set the terms for the speech expressed here, and he has.

Your options are to follow the guidelines (complying with the terms of the owner), or after a potentially long and winding road/short bumpy one, your speech will be silenced.

The guy is new here. Some coaching by PM would probably be more effective.

There is a bigger cultural issue as well.

Canada does not like to have armed soldiers out and about.  They want them isolated on bases and specific areas.  They don't want them running around on their own with government issued weapons and government issued ammo regardless of how qualified they are.

No Legions are allowed in Rome.

Yup. From the same crowd of crybabies that cry about airshows or ***** about heavy police presence then cry about lack of police when their bike is stolen.

People who reside in the vicinity of the CNE may not all be Airshow enthusiasts.

***** about heavy police presence then cry about lack of police when their bike is stolen.

I never heard of a Metro taxpayer who didn't want more police patrols, and emergency stations built, in their neighbourhood.

They are more likely to complain about resources being deployed into other neighbourhoods.

I can move my reply to the Emergency Services forum, or CNE Airshow discussion. This discussion went off-topic back around Reply #40.

Not taking the bait, thank you.

Back to the actual topic of the thread, for those interested in Sig P225s, a bunch of Swiss surplus P75s (also known as the P220s) have just hit the market. Basically the same gun except for the heel release magazine. Single stack 9rd capacity of 9mm, and they are for the most part basically new (mine I am pretty sure was either unissued or barely used, only handling marks were on the barrel). Not a terrible price (about 840$ after taxes and shipping), and mine came with the pistol, magazine, and a holster.

They have some interesting military history (or at least the Swiss military history is fascinating to me). Plus with a big Swiss cross in shield on the slide how could you go wrong?

Tradeex has some,
Weimajack on CGN has some

Personally I bought mine from Weimajack and I was more than happy with it, but the option for a formal store through Tradeex still exists. If you go the Tradeex route I would message them first just to 100% verify that it is Swiss issued (if that's what you want) as a few that came in don't have the Swiss cross on it.

Went to the US for the weekend with the family - ended up stopping at the Sig Academy by accident...didn't buy anything, but it was a neat spot to look around in for 20 minutes!

I once 'claimed' to have bought a second Harley the same way.  It was just too good a deal to resist.  ;D

Honestly - it was an accident.  I saw the sign on the side of the highway as we were driving by, and I needed a break...timing was right.

Kind of like the time we were driving through DC on the way in from visiting the Air and Space museum...and happened to find the NRA museum...again, a happy coincidence, and truly, not planned.

Really.
