Re: AR15 petition

I can't think of any Canadian news articles where a legal gun owner has shot someone. Criminals and gangs on the other hand... Every few days, in my city alone, there's headlines about shootings. But I haven't heard of a single new headline for gang shooting which involved AR's. A petition for stron...

Re: Keep the Peace - a law enforcement strategy game

Wow, I played through all four games in the Collection, pretty much back-to-back, when it first came out in 95. They were a major inspiration, but SWAT 2, a few years later, probably had the biggest impact on my desire to make a game like this. SWAT 2 was great, I like the turn based feel of the mo...

The owner kept on responding back with the same message lol


Their Google review responses went from threatening to sue for defamation, to now giving impression that all the bad reviews are fake.

Re: Ankle pain while running

Start by researching "shin splints" and "foot strike". Figure out if the issue you're facing is either of these. Foot strike is how your foot lands - how the ankle rolls side to side, and front to back. If you're currently getting ankle pain, it may be because your ankle is rolli...

Re: Apps/plans for anaerobic and overall fitness.

Runtastic has a good fitness app, it can be programmed for intervals too. Many free vids on Youtube for yoga, stretching, body weight strength exercises, HIIT, etc. Beginner to advanced. Simple workout for wind sprints, get a few $1 mini orange cones from dolllar store. Warmup: walk a few laps, then...

Re: Keep the Peace - a law enforcement strategy game

Police Quest was amazing. Sierra definitely had a great lineup with Kings Quest and Space Quest. This new game looks interesting. I like what I see so far. Game modes that may be fun to add: -"CSI Miami" mode where the detective constantly crouches, says a witty one liner, then pulls out s...

Fitness Group - West Toronto

Hi everyone, I'm looking at getting an outdoor fitness group going in the West GTA area (Toronto/Etobicoke/Mississauga). The group will aim to meet up a few times per week, for fun workouts that help support one another towards their personal goals. Aiming to have 5-10 people per workout. May includ...

Re: Danner boots Canada

Bass pro shops has a few sets of Danner tacboots. Anyone know how the Danner Lookout side zips compare to the composite Magnum Stealth side zips for comfort? I'd like to give their brand a try if they are lightweight and comfy. I've tried Orig Swat / Orig Safety / UA / Sidewinder / etc and they were...

Re: Purchase of surplus ex-police/government vehicles

I wouldn't recommend it.
Fleet vehicles are typically run 24/7 by many different drivers, all with vastly different driving styles.
Because of this strain, the lifespan of the transmission is usually far less than a non fleet vehicle.

Re: Toronto ETF (the security company)

The social media account appears to show multiple PSISA violations. The Ministry doesn't seem to be taking enforcement action (yet). Between the unmarked cars, black shirts, privacy policy issues, etc... it's mind boggling. HOW is this company allowed to exist? They mimic police uniforms nearly to a...

Re: Adding ventilation to drum brakes?

Def stay away from the cheap China made brake components. The rotors will warp prematurely and the pads/shoes are made from sawdust quality metals. Even if you change out the parts at home (which I do), it's a hassle to replace brake parts so often. I've had good luck with OEM parts, but for the pri...

Re: Toronto ETF (the security company)

The shadow of the hand/phone is probably just a tactical rubber fist mount on the vest.

They're like the security version of Super Troopers... I'm waiting to find out this was all just a trailer for a new comedy movie. Shenanigans Farva!
