    Magnum Desert Boots

    I know boots are a topic that are done to death, but does anyone have specific experience with the Magnum Amazon 4 boot?  I'm looking at a pair for civvie side wear, and I've always liked their duty line.  Comments?

    Steel Toe Boots

    ArmyVern, LOVE the pic you are using for the issue pants right now.  This may be out in left field, but if you have to go civvie side, 511 Tactical are marketing a new boot called their XPRT line that has a composite toe design.  What is cool is that the toe cap only comes around the front and...

    knives and the temptation of the edged weapon....

    Being somewhat of a collector, I just picked up a Green Beret knife (Yarborough) from Chris Reeves Knives.  I got it through True North Knives in Canada (good company for high end knives). If you can afford it, it is SWEET!!  But for the PC military, I might suggest the smaller bladed version...

    3 March 2005 - Four RCMP Murdered at Seized Marijuana Grow-Op

    I thought it was done well... I was less than impressed that the kit was all off.  Different jackets, SBA carriers, and guns.  And did anyone else notice that the character of Roszko kept calling the Corporal a Constable?  Never once corrected.  But that aside, a good accounting of how things...

    Martac Zulu Extreme Watch Bands

    Anybody know where I can get my hands on a Martac Zulu Extreme watchband?  I'd prefer a Canadian distributor.  I've found two places online. One is Countrycomm and the other I cannot remember, but their online ordering sent up a warning security flag on my computer.  Countrycomm does not ship...

    Man killed by Winnipeg police was former Canadian Forces member: sources

    I feel terrible both for Bell and for the Officers that needed to confront him.  If he was suffering from PTSD, it is saddening that the only way out he felt he was left with was to create a lethal force confrontation.  As for the Officers, I can imagine as both a former CF member and a current...

    Gear Review - MOFOCR From CP Gear

    RCMP vests?  Junk?!?  I think you are mistaken, sir. And if you can't get the sarcasm in that, you need to give your head a shake.

    Cpl. Matthew McCully - 2 CMBG HQ & Signals - 25 May 07

    Librarian, you are exactly right. In this case the parents were separated.  And it makes a difference where we live too.  Being in Prince George (and I pardon my ignorance on this) I believe the closest Military units are out of Esquimalt.

    Cpl. Matthew McCully - 2 CMBG HQ & Signals - 25 May 07

    My Watch was tasked with doing the NOK notification to his father today.  Military personnel could not make it up in time as the press release went out so quick.  As it turns out, my wife used to work with Cpl. Mcully's father. Sincere condolences to his family.  RIP  :salute: :cdn:

    The FACTS: 2 more Canadian Soldiers KIA in Afghanistan 04/11/07

    :salute: :cdn: Soldier on boys.  Toughest week we have had yet, and my prayers go out to the families of the departed, and the departed themselves.  I heard that Sears is in cooperation with Canex to sell support the troops gear.  No such luck here, so I ordered directly from Canex themselves...

    Looking for some advise on the use of tarps or groundsheets.  Are they worth packing along with a tent?  Specifically, I mean used in a civvie side camping style situation.  I have to say that being Armoured (former), we did not use our grounsheets too often.  It was usually the crew tent or...

    3 March 2005 - Four RCMP Murdered at Seized Marijuana Grow-Op

    No doubt.  I can't help but think that if I am tasked with that kind of scene security or something similar that I will put up with the extra weight and discomfort.  I'm more concerned about the immediate, out of control situation where gunfire may just erupt.  Short of wearing a non-approved...
