    Shadow Box For Medals

    This is what I did with my Corrections Exemplary Service Medal. Just went to a framer and had him mount it in a frame like so (see pic) It may give ideas on how to mount your medals. Tom

    Military combat veteran avoids jail time on child porn conviction due to PTSD

    What a load of BS.  In a nutshell they're saying PTSD causes pedophilia. I guess by that "logic" if he didn't have PTSD he wouldn't have victimized anyone. He's just a predator who targeted children, not just the 881 on his computer but the child he and his gf were going to victimize.  And all...

    CPC Leadership Discussion 2020-21

    I know it's not exactly about choosing a new leader but seems more appropriate to post in this thread than to start a new thread. Scheer resigned as party leader for using party funds to pay for his kids schooling...put another way I think it's fair to say he embezzled party funds. Now the party...

    Jeffrey Epstein, found in his prison cell.

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/medical-examiner-epstein-death-suicide-hanging-ruling-1.5250432 Of course conspiracy theorists will say the coroner was paid off to cover up the "truth" of Epstein's death.  But really nothing to see here, just a POS who's gone Tom

    Jeffrey Epstein, found in his prison cell.

    The ones we had at Millhaven when I was a young fish screw LOL were on the range wall. You walked to the end of the range and pressed the switch. But I am familiar (although never used one myself) with the type you showed. OMG that was a lifetime ago...I still had hair on my head Tom

    Jeffrey Epstein, found in his prison cell.

    Not saying not true, since I've never worked in that facility, but when I was in (as a Correctional Officer, not a con) when you did your range walk there was a punch at the end of the range which verified you went down range and back and how long your range walk took. There was also a log book...

    No expert at all but fourth picture (looking at the truck from the rear) Is there a dent in the rear bumper (drivers side) Don't know if it affects the truck at all but it may have been in an accident, even a fender bender Good Luck Tom

    Jeffrey Epstein, found in his prison cell.

    I bet he didn't even have to do that.  Just say the "right" things to prison staff (Correctional Officers, Psychologists etc) to make them believe he isn't suicidal, and they take him off suicide watch. And to those surprised he was off suicide watch I'd be surprised after a few weeks behind...

    Jeffrey Epstein, found in his prison cell.

    Being on suicide watch doesn't necessarily mean someone is watching him, and only him 24/7. It means the correctional officer would likely check his cell every 15 minutes (normally a correctional officer does his/her wind/count every hour)  But placing an offender under suicide watch would be in...

    Pay increments

    Although not in the Canadian Forces I am retired from the Federal Public Service and rates of pay were similarly structured. The PI I'd venture a guess stands for Pay Increment The different PI levels just because like the Public Service you don't go right to top pay (well not supposed to) at...

    Fur-family memories

    This hits close, really close to home. Just this past Friday I had to take my cat, Nabob, to the vet and have him put to sleep. I had him for 11+ years, he was a rescued feral kitten who adopted me. A little over a year ago he had rapid weight loss due to elevated white blood cell count.  With...

    Canadian soldiers suffer frostbite during winter training

    Just a civies opinion with a Militia four day Winter Warfare course (2 days theory, 2 days camping) I am no expert. But it sounds like that member wanted off the course.  Member probably listened just ignored and hoped to get an RTU Again just a very non expert opinion, I'd say my two cents...

    The FN C1 - Service Rifle of the Past (and C7A1 vs FN C1A1)

    More useful compared to what?  You'd need shooters who have shot the FN C1 and the FAL to compare the two As the rifle that was most everyone's personal weapon (to the best of my limited CF knowledge) back in the day it seemed pretty useful to me. And that's with the caveat I had limited...
