    Herc overflights - info source?

    Resident of Limoges as well? I assumed it was the annual aerial pot sweep through the Larose forest, but I could definitely be wrong. I'm just on the edge of the forest and it has been a hive of aerial activity lately.

    Royal Blue Hackle

    The Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa kit shop also carries blue hackles. Are you looking for a fuller plume (sticks out farther from behind the cap badge) or flatter (crests only a cm or two)? I may have some of the full plume one lying around, but the flatter ones (that I prefer for my balmoral)...

    Fire breaks out at DND building in Gatineau

    Looks like LSL is up for a little bit of a refit. Perhaps an earlier move to Carling? http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/fire-louis-st-laurent-building-1.3546556

    New Artillery Capbadge

    You may not have boots, you may not have a camouflage uniform that can hide the type and colour of your undergarments, and the grass may not be greener, but at least it will be "noticeably thicker" on the cap badge. Oh, by the way, pay up, that thicker grass doesn't pay for itself! /sarcasm

    Camming up the Thermarest

    Given the yellow and reflective bottom, I'm guessing you got a z-lite sol (http://www.mec.ca/product/5027-423/therm-a-rest-z-lite-sol-sleeping-pad-unisex/?q=z-lite).  Thermarest, and the parent company Cascade Designs actually does a lot of work for the US military and generally has military...

    Hey gun nerds, SA 15.7 or 15.7 IUR franken gun?

    The IUR is pretty front heavy, and while it is very nice, I prefer the standard SA15.7. If you intend on adding a rail, then cost wise you may be better off with the IUR but I like the look of the 15.7 with a KAC RAS on it. Your particular use case will determine which way you should go, but the...

    EO Tech Sight

    There has even been a lawsuit where L3 paid out in the realm of 26M to settle. The days of seeing EOTech on USSOCOM rifles are done. The anecdotal side says that this wasn't an issue before L3 took over the company so earlier ones would be good to go according to some.
