Re: CBSA Practice gun - form or function?

I agree with Dave on get trained by your agency instructors first...but if you are going to invest in a pistol to practice with (and possibly stake your life or a coworkers life on) and your duty pistol is available for civilians..why not? The problem is that apparently the restricted version of th...

Re: OPP Charger - 2009 Toronto Auto Show

I'm wondering why so many members here seem to hate on the Charger. Personally, I've driven a crown vic and I own a civvie model charger, and I find that the Charger handles WAY better than the vic, also even in the V6 platform, it has nearly as many horsepower as a CVPI, and in the hemi it just blo...

Re: RCMP Future firearms

How about Russell Manitoba, when one very brave RCMP officer emptied his pistol while his partner was murdered at point-blank range with a shotgun. One of those POSs is dead and one is due for release very shortly. (She was the one who her defence lawyer maintained "slept through" the ent...

Re: CBSA Practice gun - form or function?

Some interesting posts in this thread. Didn't think it would continue this far. Perhaps a bit of background on me would illuminate things a little - I've been in the military for 7 years, been a gun owner for longer, and qualified with a 100% score on my Browning 9mm shoot for the platoon support we...

I don't recall where but this was already discussed (at length from what I remember) some where in this forum. Try to search it......I am sure you will come up with what you are looking for I searched and couldn't find a specific thread talking about this issue. Lots and lots talking ad nauseum abo...

CBSA Practice gun - form or function?

I've been thinking about getting a 9mm pistol in preparation for being armed, and once armed, to practice in order to improve my skill with the duty firearm. I consider it to be a duty of any armed law enforcement officer to become as proficient as possible with his or her sidearm since people's liv...

Re: Stupidity, vigilantism, or heroism???? Discuss.

Well, I think there's no question that it was an unwise decision made with the noblest of intentions, and thank God that nobody was hurt. I'm very happy that that degenerate puke is behind bars where he belongs though. This reminds me of a story from a guy I used to work K9 security with. He was dri...

Re: ASP Batton?

I know that all police and security personnel carry around expendable "ASP" batons, such as these ones: m But my question is; is that legal for a civilian to carry? i ask this because i know a friend who is 2nd degree black belt, and at his DOJO (Martial Arts Center), they sell such baton...

Re: LAPD & RCMP to get Aussie made cop cars!!

And.....heres the photos to prove it!!! m Personally I think the LAPD design looks awesome but I'd hate to see the RCMP deface an iconic Aussie car with its crap design.. RCMP should TOTALLY go back to the old Blue 'n whites, only with 2 doors white instead of one. They're much nicer than their hid...

Re: Keeping shirts tucked in

I gotta start wearing underwear now to keep my shirt tucked? Sacrificing freedom for appearance. Sad... CO To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin, any society that is willing to sacrifice freedom to gain a little security deserves neither. You rock that commando, and don't let THE MAN tell you different!
