    Infantry Vehicles

    The C5 wasn’t mobile - it was absolutely impossible to use in a ‘light role’ and requires a tripod. The C6/MAG-58/M240/L7A2 etc on the other hand is decently effective off the bipod in the light role - and quite effective in the SF kit. Any CarlG sight won’t really work for a Mortar or MG, the...

    While nothing really to do with the CF...     Jason Falla is a former SASR guy, and he speaks very highly of the guys from CANSOF, even the CSOR guys (who apparently did very well in Jordan recently in their Warrior Competition) Having attended a number of classes from trainers over the past...

    AAC Silencer Shoot 2009

    Advanced Armament Company of Ga. hosted their annual Silencer Shoot last weekend. Industry, Military and civilians where out in full force.  Unlike other gatherings this was pretty laid back so you could interact with some entities on a lot more relaxed basis - sharing a dip like stuff. ...

    As many of you know I am not a big fan of PDW's.  Mainly since the NATO PDW requirement mandates a round that fits in both a handgun and long arm.  The rounds are penetration driven with no thought to terminal performance, and given the contraints of having a handgun, the round is a small round...

    Carbine Perfection?

    Well as I sit at revision infinity of my primary long gun, I am fairly confident that this is it - or as near to it as is really worth it for me. I'm still planning on swapping the redi-mag for the Blue Force Gear skeletonized version - as I like the weight savings - and I like the other...
