    When mass killers meet armed resistance.

    Ok, an event that comes to mind is the North Hollywood bank-robbery shootout, an event where none of the hostages offered resistance, and as a result, none were killed. I wonder how such a scenario would have played out had they done something other than "plead for their lives." Or...is your...

    When mass killers meet armed resistance.

    Sure, as long as you accept the right of everyone else to the same - perhaps people who aren't as disciplined nor as trained in CQB or weapons handling as you are. Wait, was that your daughter the well-meaning gentleman just shot because he was nervous and, well, he'd bought it for his wife...

    When mass killers meet armed resistance.

    What a nightmare scenario that would be; the police respond to an emergency such as VT, only to find a large group of civilians equally as well armed, just as confused as to what the situation is, and all looking to be the hero; to me, it sounds like an effective impediment to the legal...

    I "Pam" having some problems...

    many thanks; I was hoping to be able to get this done well in advance of the weekend's training, but c'est la vie I suppose... Thanks guys!

    I "Pam" having some problems...

    I haven't got the PM yet, but I'm sure it will turn up soon; many thanks! As for being "inside the DIN", that, I am afraid, I am not. If anyone needs more specific location to find this dastardly thing, by all means, please ask; I teach on Saturday, and as much "fun" as I have doing things at...

    Sorry Geo, "Bad Gateway."  ??? Thanks though! And the PAM is "Operating Instructions, Radio Set, AN/PRC 521"

    I "Pam" having some problems...

    That wasn't that funny. Ok, here's the thing; I've recently been given the honour of teaching a radio segment on a BMQ course. I'm not worried about the teaching; I feel more than up to the task, and I'm confident in my teaching abilities. Unfortunately, my scanning skills are not quite up to...

    Prisoners of War

    Ok, here's the situation - tomorrow, I've got to teach my first non-PLQ lesson, something that wouldn't normally be cause for concern. Unfortunately, the subject which I must teach - taking, securing, searching, and moving POW's - is one in which I am unable to find any clearly marked PAM in...

    "JTF-2 Commandos were ready to swoop"

    Certainly, a higher level of resources go into training a commando as opposed to a member of a police tactical team; seeing as how the latter cannot perform the specialized skills of the former, from a practical standpoint - why not let specialized police units alone handle such a situation...

    Westboro Church Protest Mega-thread

    I could care less what the subject does to "deserve" the host's scorn; I resent the fact that MY position is symbolized by the interviewer acting like a preachy piece of gutter trash. The lady's position was sufficiently low that the host did not need to meet her halfway. As to the CBC being...

    Video: Low Flying Jets

    Question on the mid-air refueling... That thing (drogue?) looked like it was spraying fuel over the front of the aircraft....were some to get sucked into the jet intake, wouldn't that pose a danger to the aircraft?

    Westboro Church Protest Mega-thread

    The most irritating thing about that show, I thought, was that the lack of etiquette on behalf of the host. Say what you will about the CBC, at least it's professional.

    Communist Canada? and a Nation without a army

    If you're interested in material of that nature consider going into poltical science in university. For now though, stay in school and don't do drugs.

    I was in A company... The best parts: Individual live fire jungle lanes with the AN/PVS-17, C7A2, and PAC4-C. Unbelievably fun. Helicopter insertions for the raid. Live fire section attacks. The worst parts: Shack Hack; I think everyone was infected at one point or another. The amphibious...
