    Op Attention Danger Pay Reductions?

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2013/04/09/afghanistan-soldiers-danger-pay.html I'm seeing a lot of grief about this out there but I can't say I necessarily disagree.  Doing it in the middle of a rotation though is, odd, at best. Who decides this anyway?  Treasury Board?  Forgive my...

    Customizing a Mossberg Tactical 22 (702) - Which barrel shroud?

    Buy a SR22? ;D Seriously though, I beleive most problems are due to crap mags.  try a diffrent mag. I cheaped out and bought the tactical mossy too and regret it everytime I pick it up.  Airsoft guns at Canadian Tire feel better built.  On the other hand, the Promag chassis kits I've felt feel...

    Sync/Viewing Outlook at home?

    I'm guessing having one's Outlook on the DIN syncing with something like a Windows Live or Gmail account is impossible but what is the easiest way to export my Outlook calendar so I can add it to and update my calendar at home? Export it as a .pst file? Thanks

    Buy and Sell Suggestion

    I was just wondering if it would be possible to change the edit/modify time limit for the Buy and Sell forum only? Not having a time limit on when a poster's thread could be edited allows for them to update the thread without having to re-post everything with the changes.  This also avoids...

    What is up with all these CTs??

    Can someone explain to me why it is very well qualified and experienced people are sitting around here as Coporals for years because we're being told just how overmanned we are, especially at the junior NCO level, yet all of these reservists come waltzing in taking these spots? It is getting...

    Armoured Vehicle Recovered from Ottawa Area Swamp?

    For years the old timers in the area around the Winchester Bog south of Ottawa talked about the old "tank" that had been mired and abandoned in the swamp years ago.  Some say 50-60 years ago, others 40.  They also talk about how the tract of land was once used for military training in it's...

    Health Serivces on Leave Question

    I probably should know the right answer to this, but unlike some people these days I'm not intimately famaliar with the ins and outs of our health services system. Something's happened to my back on leave and after the third day and not being able to get myself out of bed, I've decided it's...

    Coming Changes to Infantry NCM Career Courses

    I found an interesting PowerPoint today.  Maybe this is on here somewhere.... I couldn't find any other topics on it, but admitedly, my search wasn't exhaustive.  Maybe there would be something in the link within the Ex Bayonet thread, but a membership is needed. Anyway, it outlines the (very...

    Snugpak Ionoshpere Personal Tent/Hooch

    They've been selling these at the 1 RCR kit shop for a little while and they are becoming quite popular. However, despite being a kit slut, I'm reluctant to drop the $260 they're asking for it as I'm kinda burnt out on spending tons of $ on kit that serves little purpose outside of work.  Plus...

    Pre-Deployment Leave

    What is the "norm",  if any, when it comes to pre-deployment leave?  I'm not talking how much actual pre-deployment, annual, special, weekend, etc days you get, but actual calender days. I know people like replacements for instance get very little time before leaving but it seems, with some...

    WTB - BUIS (Troy, etc.)

    I'm looking to find a Troy Industries (or equivalant that will work on our rails) back up iron sight.  My bill for kit for tour has crept into the multi thousands so I'm trying to locate kit off guys who have come off tour and/or are looking to get rid of stuff rather then go out and buy...

    Rails with M203?

    Just wondering if anyone knows if, or which type, of handguard rails work with the M203 mounted on a C7?  Obviously, it would just be the top portion.  I'm looking to avoid having to mount things like a PEQ forward on the triad rail and make an ungainly weapon even more so. Thanks EDIT -...

    M203 Rig setups - Looking for suggestions

    Just looking for M203 rig suggestions.  My preference is for something that splits in the front (so you don't have to pull it over your head) and doesn't rely on carrying a separate bandolier.  Thinking something like 8-12 grenades in MOLLE pouches and the rest loose in a utility pouch and/or...

    ACOGs sold in KAF (or otherwise) knockoffs?

    I guy approached me at work today wondering if I wanted to buy his ACOG (TA31).  Apparently he got it at the end of his tour (in KAF I think) and never used it.  It looks brand new.  I didn't have time to get all the details as I had other business going on but I gave him a $50 down payment as...

    WANTED - RM Equipment M203grip

    Just hoping there might be someone kicking around here that bought one for tour, etc. and no longer requires it.  I did notice some older threads like this but I was hoping there was some fresh info out there.  They still seem like a pain to get into Canada and definitely not cheap.  There is a...

    Buttstock reccomendations

    Just looking for opinions for an aftermarket buttstock replacement for the C7A2.  I've never felt the issue buttstock sat in the shoulder well when wearing the TV and PPE, especially when they are lacking the rubber end as most are around here.  I've adapted and seem to manage well but it has...

    Ruck Advice

    I've recently come to the conclusion after several exercises and talks with my CoC that I intend to not deploy with the CTS ruck and instead will use a jump ruck. Although quite comfortable to wear my current setup isn't all that rugged, versatile or practical.  Saying that, I recently decided...

    Pack at top of '64 frame?

    Recently I was scrambling to come up for a load carriage solution for an upcoming dismounted ex.  I did not want to wear my issue CTS ruck (suprise) but I didn't want to use either of my jump rucks as I've never liked having the valise up top with the pack below.  It's a pain in the ass as far...

    Looking for answers....[Questions About Benefits While Engaged And On Tour]

    I recently became engaged and with tour coming up in early 2010 I (we) decided it would be best to wait until the summer of 2011 to have a wedding.  To do the wedding we want requires summer weather which we won’t see together again until 2011.  Also, neither of us wants to rush it before tour...
