    IMP’s

    As I said, limited contact for me. Why the most expensive?

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    I have heard of suggested amendments to this bill that have impact on airsoft, pellet, paintball and BB guns as well. As the Canada.ca site is usually out of date, I have not been able to find a more recent source of this information. Changes to these kinds of gun would likely have an impact...

    IMP’s

    So, limited contact with issue foodstuffs in general, but do IMP’s still exist? Certainly in the Cadets, I’ve only seen MRE’s. Now I understand that MRE’s are ubiquitous and cheap, but can IMP’s still be had? Are they soldier-only? Meals Rejected by Everyone actually can be pretty tasty, but...

    Reporting In

    Milnet would be based on MILitary NETwork, much like the term Milspec is based on Military Specifications.

    Special Forces pulls new pistols from service after soldier injured in misfire

    It's funny, but having fired a grand total of 5 handguns in my life, all of which within the past few months, the Sig 320 was one of my faves. I did better shooting with it because the trigger was not quite as heavy to pull. If one were to holster the weapon with finger on trigger as suggested...

    GG Payette resigns 21 Jan 2021

    Actually, yeah. Another media hack, recognizeably Canadian, has some level of respect for the Forces and Canadians in general...good idea.

    Shift Happens: When does an employee’s online behaviour outside the workplace cross the line?

    As the owner of a private company, I will make my own decisions on hiring and firing employees. If the employee is performing at or above spec, then I don't have to see the necropost from his past. If he's performing below spec, then I should have already taken him to task for that, and the...

    My CIC Application Odyssey

    Fitness standards are not as stringent as for reg force, because you will likely never be deployed. You are required to take the FORCE test, but rumour has it that you are not required to pass it. That being said, personal and unit pride would want you to pass it. So far, what I have been...

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    How much of the archives do you have on the new site. There was an ancient science fiction novel where I died as a Corporal, and Infanteer went on to save the universe....

    My CIC Application Odyssey

    So, today I received an email from RCSU with Authority for Initial Issue of Kit and Certification for Temporary ID Card.  I have been instructed to consult with my CO on kit and ID procedures in my area, and have immediately passed on the information.  Hopefully, things can move quickly and I...

    CIC TRAINING

    Thanks.  More along the lines of what I was looking for.  What to expect on the daily. Now I just have to get coursed.

    CIC TRAINING

    So, just to bring life to a mostly dead thread...what can I expect from BOTC?  Drill?  Ironing?  Polishing shoes & obstacle courses followed by classroom training?  Waterman training?  I have no idea how much “normal” stuff they put CIC through, but I expect in ten days it’s not going to be as...
