Re: S&W 5946 R.I.P

Hi Power is right that I don't know the full story. Some of my best instructors used to always say during a demonstration of side-arm retention or any compromising position you find yourself in, ask yourself this question "how the f#*k did I let myself get into this situation?" So my ques...

Re: S&W 5946 R.I.P

Let me just say that magazine disconnects are the stupidest feature ever invented in handguns. As a court officer who doesn't have time to dump his sidearm when going into a cell block in a rural town, the magazine disconnect isn't all that bad of an idea. Considering an Albertan Sheriff got shot w...

Re: AR15 petition

We need to challenge this variant garbage yes we do..but with the gov't giving total control to the "firearms experts" in the RCMP..it will be a never ending fight. What we need is the "common sense panel" to review any decisions made by these so called "firearms experts&qu...

Re: AR Operating System

DI is perfectly fine. Piston guns were a fad that flourished when engineers made a reasonable attempt to improve the AR action, and marketing noticed that people will buy anything that's "different enough". I'd consider it a failed experiment. The marginal increase in cyclical reliability ...

I dunno. This is an "official" petition, recognized by the gov't...if that makes any difference.


That means it gets debated in Parliament. That's it.

Re: Ask a Sheriff

I think you guys are getting pretty wound up over very little. mPI is right in some ways - the surveillance done in PI work can be very similar to LE surveillance. There are some big differences but a lot of the core elements are the same. Just because the guy isn't a Sheriff already doesn't mean he...

Re: Ask a Sheriff

Excellent, thanks^ And if anyone knows, for the position of surveillance sheriff, is post secondary usually required? In a situation where they're not particularly hurting for people. I have 3 years of physical surveillance experience as a private investigator but if I'm going the Sheriff route I w...

Re: Ask a Sheriff

Is the salary negotiable based on experience? What % of your day is devoted to access control? And do they still have you stay in the dorms if you live out of town? Not negotiable to my knowledge. Your salary is dependent on your pay classification step, which is determined after you're hired by CH...

Re: From the Book of Dave Brown

How does one mount the Velcro to the side of the receiver? Is it just stick-on, or is it a panel that screws on that has Velcro on it? Dave, how are the shell carriers that mount to the receiver of the 870 with the takedown pin holes? I think a few companies make them. Any recommendations for the b...

As of Sep 2, 2015 the new provisions for a restricted ATT came into force. A huge step towards eliminating useless paperwork and red tape for legal firearm owners. Or not...

Re: From the Book of Dave Brown

Haha, nice trick with the Star. We had a few converted magazines kicking around that seemed to work alright with them, but of course they're extra $$. To contribute to the thread, my bird gun (and lately, my 3-gun competition gun) is an 870 Wingmaster from the early 60's. My grandma gave it to my gr...

Re: Ask a Sheriff

Jury officers wear a Blue blazer with the Sheriffs crest on it. Not a "hard" uniform like other Sheriffs do. SST1's are still Sheriffs. I'm not sure what the training will be like now, because I'm not 100% up on the role that SST1's are currently filling beyond Jury officers.
