Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I was fortunate enough to receive 'the Call' this week for Troop 5. Here are a few observations I've found along the way that I hope will help others as they work towards their dreams and goals. - There is a search box located top right of the page, I highly recommend utilizing it. - Comparing time...

Re: Best Boots

Anything worth wearing is usually 300 bucks and up. Just shell out for a good pair. I've had a pair of Original SWAT (when I brand new and didn't know any better), then went to a set of Blackhawk's - which were also crap. I've been wearing the same pair of Hanwag Special Forces boots for the past 3 ...

Re: RCMP Uniform

If anything should be not allowed it should be: more than one pen strapped to webbing (even one I think is tacky), anything other than mags going in a carbine mag pouch - I've seen digital recorders, gloves....ugh just dreadful stuff really.

Re: New RCMP Shirts

Regarding boots, I see The Canteen (yeah, yeah, to the REST of you its The Trading Post - SHUT UP ALREADY!) is carrying a good selection of winter, non-winter and non-winter CSA all-black / waterproof / tactical footwear now. Obviously S/M PATTERSON remembers actually working for a living! Yep, the...

Re: RCMP Uniform

I forget what the news clip was about, but recently on TV I saw a member in Service Order #1 with external SBA and it looked like he was wearing his little brother's vest, which helped feature his dunlap physique simply mahvellusleee! Some guys just don't give a crap about their appearance as a pol...

Re: New RCMP Shirts

I just ordered some new long sleeves. Same size as I what I had before. I'm the same size. The shirts have way less excess in the front back and sides that always required a lot of tucking, or in some members...the muffin top thing. They fit a lot better. The lot quality with the outfit seems to be ...

Re: 2013 Ford Interceptor & Utility

Wow! That is really nice. Must be in BC. They get all of the cool stuff Not BC. It's a Rigid, 30" E Series. White light, spot/flood combo. Its ridiculously bright. I had one my last personal vehicle and I wouldn't go any other brand. I know some guys that bought other types that were a bit che...

Re: 2013 Ford Interceptor & Utility

The big front facing LED bar on the push bumper, is that all white, or does it flash red and blue? Looks similar the what Alaska State Troopers use. As far as I know it's all white light. Floods and is very bright! Good for those back wood calls or lighting up the side of the hwy! Yes its all white...

Re: New RCMP Shirts

Did someone just say that RCMP shirts are good quality? We must be wearing different stuff. I wish they would rid those grey POS garbage bags into outer space. Issue Cargos - junk. Now they are just business slacks with cargo pockets. Order from the company in Edmonton and be done with it. Too bad 5...

Re: S&W 5946 R.I.P

Right now the only thing the mounties have to look forward to is a new holster. So, I would guess that if they have decided to buy holsters, we can look forward to our boat anchors for another 10 years at least! Too many people in charge who remember the march west.....................................

Re: 2013 Ford Interceptor & Utility

Finally got the new rig. It's actually not too bad. Here are my thoughts after a few days in it: Good: - AWD is surprisingly good. Responds well to gas being floored on loose snow. - Acceleration is not bad either. Had one bare stretch of pavement, and it picked up fairly quick. (Non boosted v6). - ...
