    New prototype 500 Round Ammunition Backpack for US military

    I think it would be practical if it was designed to hold 100 rounds, enough to eliminate the teaser belt and be sustainable until the number 2 gets the ammo out and ready, provided you can get that feed chute out of the way.

    BMQ Reserves 2010 - 2017

    I agree that there isnt to great of a training value shooting the 100 rounds, but it does allow the troops to put all of their skills learned on the weapons to use. I dont think that this is a waste of ammo when lots of rounds somehow never find their way back into circulation.

    Trade best suited for a teacher

    BMQ Reserves 2010 - 2017

    So if none of them are trained on the weapons, they are going to have them do their defensive ftx with just C7 trenches and hasty attacks with no support elements?I guess the time is better spent with power points and jacking the troops up all evening.

    Does SQ count as DP1 MOD 1?

    Brihard is correct. Many people had to do both mods during the summer that just passed even though they completed SQ the summer before. I personally think they should have run one more traditional dp1 for the people who completed SQ the year before, and implement the new program for the...

    Paying Compliments (Saluting)

    Well im assuming that the OP is fairly new if she does not know to salute, so I imagine it would be CADPAT which is even more out of place.

    Canine units in or Contracted to Canadian Armed Forces

    The only way you are realistically going to become a dog handler is by wprking your way through the ranks of an organization that utilizes them, police, CBSA, SAR organizations etc. Even then it will not be certain.

    I hope that this does not keep continuing, it is a shame to see fundraising events such as this being cancelled.

    Help me pick my MOS

    Have you gone to school for firefighting? While being in the military may be looked upon favourably by fire departments, it is still extremely unlikely for them to hire you if you do not possess the required certifications, e.g NFPA I and II, Proboard, OFM etc. These are obtained through...
