Well, make do with what you got. I'd like a better rifle, but certain laws where I live don't allow me. and because I'm a reservist, I don't have access to the fancy standard issue C7s here. So I'm stuck with my two Lee Enfields and a 1912-pattern Winchester.
Replica firearms (i.e.: "any device that is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, a firearm, and that itself is not a firearm, but does not include any such device that is designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, an antique firearm")
Suppressors (i.e.: "a device or contrivance designed or intended to muffle or stop the sound or report of a firearm")
Handgun barrels that are 105 millimetres (4.1 in) and under (excluding barrels of pistols used in international sporting competitions governed by the rules of the International Shooting Union)
Electrical or mechanical devices designed or adapted to render the trigger mechanism of a semi-automatic firearm to discharge in a fully automatic fashion
"Any rifle, shotgun or carbine stock of the type known as the “bull-pup” design, being a stock that, when combined with a firearm, reduces the overall length of the firearm such that a substantial part of the reloading action or the magazine-well is located behind the trigger of the firearm when it is held in the normal firing position.(i.e.: only removable stocks are prohibited by this regulation, fixed-stock firearms such as the FN P90 and IWI Tavor are excluded)
This is why Canadian politics suck. Also, magazine capacity is limited to 5 rounds for semi-auto rifles. Any rifles with the ability to go full auto are prohibited, as well as any semi that was once full auto. The AR-15 and all associated rifles are in the restricted list, but I have to wait another 4 years before I'm eligible for that level of license.
Getting to shoot guns makes almost anything better! I've personally never shot an M4, the most military firearms I've used are an SKS, Galil and PS90 (all civilian versions), but I sure hope to someday! Also, thanks a bunch for doing what you do for our America, my oldest brother is a 2nd Lieutenant in the USAF working in cyber operations, and is sorta a role model to me. I wish you safety and success in all that you do!
Do you have Cpls in the US Navy, or were you mixing with some of your fellow armed forces members? Also, GET YOUR DAMN FINGER AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER. My sergeant would sit on me if he saw me do that while handling a rifle.
Oh yeah, I see. I guess some go a little too far with strictness, but I'd rather have too strict than too slack for an IC. Oh, good luck with your tour fella, tell us how it went when you get back, yeah?
IDK. Probably from another command. We usually have a choice between NWU's (blue didgies) and Coveralls while drilling. I choose coveralls because they are the cooler of the two uniforms. Still sweat like a dog though... Full flak gear in a long sleeved, long slaked blue suit outside mid day on the equator is murder!
Why would they try to convince you that they're not? I mean, the M4 is a pretty good rifle, specification-wise, and even then, what other gun would they want you to use? Hk416 is based off the AR15, same with the 417, and all the other weapons used by the Navy are probably more for the SEAL's XD. Do they want you to start using sub-machine guns?
I really wonder when the government is going to issue a new assault rifle. Sure, the M4 is great, but it's lacking in some of the technological advancement areas. I mean, look at the XM25. Air-burst 25mm grenade? Hell yeah! That project originally started out as a 20mm gun with air-burst capabilities, intended to be an advanced standard gun for regular troops. In all honesty, I think I would take that over an M4. But, of course, ammo and costs and stuff eventually canceled the project, but, my point is, the AR15 platform is getting a bit old.
Wait, SEAL training? I didn't know you were training to be a SEAL at some point! BUD/S mustard been tough - and why you're able to do those one arm push-ups . I know that it must have been crushing when you didn't make it, but at the same time, we would have seen a lot less of you online if you did.
BTW, is there some way to contact you via email? I have a school project that involves interviewing people who did something different, but most kids are doing homeless people or cancer patients - since we have lots of homeless shelter s and hospitals - while I decided to go above and beyond and interview those who have offered their life for the people. That doesn't just mean military - I even got a firefighter paramedic! But I would like you to answer a few questions.
If you don't want to or can't, that's okay, I just wanted to interview someone I admired.
