    This is not quite correct, it an insurance company requirement, not the AB registry, and if you have an out of province insurance underwriter they may never request an inspection.

  4. Tell me what I have, Brodie Helmet identification request.

    Hello Gents, it's been a long time, but I am back with an ID request.

    First questions and then the story.

    What pattern of helmet is this, and given the unusual markings, is it a valuable relic,...

    That is interesting, the only weapon I have ruined was when we were ordered to expend all leftover blank ammo from an exercise in the US, Fort Pickett in 2001.

    My C7A1 took 55-60 magazines of...

    The tank is a very good sketch of a M3 Lee or the M3 Grant depending on country of service.

    Offset main gun, small AT gun in a 360 turret with a MG in the cupola.

    Over penetration of any 5.56/.223 with regard to structures is a very valid concern with your scope of use, I think the .30 Carbine is likely a much better choice with regards to that.

    During my time our C6 GPMG never had a side bag or box in the dismounted role, so they were carried as BAR mentioned.

    The C9 LMG had a hard plastic clip on box that held 200 rounds of 4BIT as...

    Deactivated firearms, if done to the standard are considered non-firearms like any other similar weighted item of metal.

    That standard seems to evolve from time to time but is no where near as...

    It looks very much built on a price point.

    Or someone had the requirement to only use current weapon stocks for the conversion.

    The MAT49 proving unsuitable, perhaps it was either that or a...

    This may not be a matter of pointing, but a failure of muzzle and trigger control while moving.

    While not pointing in civilian use is a good rule, in military use pointing is part of the use of a...

    I usually fill those out with friend's contact info, just to be helpful of course.

    Honestly, what friend wouldn't want a timeshare investment seminar over the phone at supper time?

    These have dropped to nearly zero since I discontinued my landline service. After 10 years that number was only used by scammers and my mother.

    I never encountered them in my time there, but since it is the crossroad of the old spice route as it were, these guns could have come from a number of sources. For example how did Canadian made Long...
