    Improved Combat Uniform

    I think it'd be really cool if they decided to switch out one of the flags with a unit patch... God forbid you instil a little pride in your units.

    Preparing for army life

    It's true, be prepared to be treated like a child and be more supervised than one. Start letting things slide off your shoulders and build up your "bullshit tolerance". Learn to not complain about things no matter what they are. Or play hockey  ;D

    Men have Movember, now women have Decembeaver

    If not shaving your nethers brings awareness to anything to any significant number of people... it'll probably only make you aware of your own promiscuity. I doubt I'm gonna see a flood of decembeaver progress pictures on my facebook. I almost think it's a joke. Pretty sure the video is, but...

    Current Trends in CF Releases

    From the RegF infantry side, I've seen the majority of the people I came through with leave in the last two years or so; their tour was done, and they feel like they're wasting their life sitting around Bn lines waiting for courses that never seem to come. A lot of them just want to get out of...

    CF Army Combat Top is too long..

    The fact of the matter is we spend 99% of our time in combats in garrison, or in the public eye. Having a good fitting set of combats in fairly good condition is something every soldier should strive to do. It's also our garrison dress... unless you think we should reserve our combats for field...

    Replacement of Browning HP, Sig Sauer 225 begins

    In that case I'd totally agree with you. I kept my pistol on my rig, and we switched a lot between "extended dismounted ops (10+ hours)" and mounted ops; I wasn't about to start rearranging my rig from day to day; and it really didn't seem to add a lot compared to the other ammo I was carrying.

    Replacement of Browning HP, Sig Sauer 225 begins

    Never fired the round, but I was happy to have my pistol . There were times I wanted to instill my will on others in places that my rifle or crew served weapons couldn't get. Also, in Afghanistan, taking out a pistol is the universal "we mean business" symbol and will usually resolve things...

    CFB Shilo soldier charged with beastality

    Not really surprising; probably ran out of things to do. People will resort to weird things when their boredom threshold is reached.

    The C7 Assault Rifle, M16, & AR15 family (C7A1, C7A2, C7 replacment, and C7 vs M16)

    Or the pistol grip falling off, with one of the most classic looks you can ever see on someone's face.

    The C7 Assault Rifle, M16, & AR15 family (C7A1, C7A2, C7 replacment, and C7 vs M16)

    If you're doing Urban Ops shoots and doing mag dumps, you'll quickly see a couple of cook offs. That's why we leave our bolts to the rear between shoots.

    Pro Patria; he's an excellent leader, I'll be saying my goodbye tomorrow at the service.

    Improved Combat Uniform

    I've seen a couple guys with the new combats at the infantry school; you actually have to look closely to see the differences (except for the shoulders), and they have the white stitching on name-tags etc.

    Selling of issued boots, illegal?

    I asked because I cam across this the other day, contacted the seller as to where we able to obtain the pictured green boulet boots. They appear to be the ones that were trialed a couple years ago (they apear to be suede and not have the nylon sides like the new ones (correct me if I'm wrong, I...

    It's just a conspiracy to make us cam up more often, duh.

    from german army band to canadian forces band

    I'm pretty sure I was at that wedding, haha. Another option to consider is one of the plethora of Reserve bands; they're a lot more inclusive than the regular force musician trade, and many of them of them do a lot of musical work, and keep busy. If they're looking to stay on the east coast...

    Camel Bak on BMQ 13K march ?

    It's only 13k. Hydrate before and after and you should be fine. 2 hours without water won't kill you.
