I'd also suggest that the fact the government has recently decided to militarily support anti-ISIS operations overseas has a lot to do with the timing of these attacks.  And again, polls indicate that backing for that decision is lowest in Quebec.
  I also read that PM Harper had planned to meet w/ Nobel Peace Prize recipient Malala Yousafzai in Toronto later today to give her honorary Canadian citizenship, it has been suggested in the media that the BGs were very much against the meeting and want her dead.

  Wow, perhaps we've finally got a viable .308 bullpup....

Indeed.  If I got this I would HAVE to get a Can for it.  Most likely from Silencerco.

This is far from the last of these sorts of attacks that we will see.

CSIS and the RCMP have been quietly indicating for several years that they have been tracking extremists in country and abroad for many years.  It's an issue that has finally been making front page news since it started being reported that several radicalized youths from Calgary had been killed fighting in Syria.  For a long time though, examples such as the Khadr family and the Toronto 18 were portrayed as singularities in the media, anomalies in a multicultural society.

I am frankly not surprised to find that the suspects in both incidents have Quebecois sounding surnames.  It's worth noting that the FLQ, Denis Lortie, Gamil Gharbi, Kimveer Gill all came from Quebec, as did the guy that ran over the soldier the other day.  I suspect that we will find that this latest gunman also hails from Quebec.  The province seems to have a history of producing radicals and misanthropes that express themselves violently.

I'd also suggest that the fact the government has recently decided to militarily support anti-ISIS operations overseas has a lot to do with the timing of these attacks.  And again, polls indicate that backing for that decision is lowest in Quebec.

As I said though, I think this will not be the last incident.

Calgary is home to the largest mosque in Canada, and given the number of extremists reported to have come from here and gone abroad to fight for organizations like ISIS, I am greatly concerned - and have been for a long time - about something happening here.

At times like these, I recall arriving at work the morning of September 11, 2001 and among those who were shaken and solemn, hearing cries of exultation from others.  Canada may have embraced a multicultural philosophy, but not all of them have embraced Canada.

MDR Range Footage (Prototype .308)
I can not articulate how much I want this.
I handled the prototype at SHOT last January, and it was FANTASTIC.
This is going to be the #1 Bullpup when it's ready for production.  DT's really taking their time on this - doing it right - with all the R&D they can put into it.  No rushing to market.


I saw this rifle in action a few months ago at the Lee Kay range.  The CEO was there testing the gun trying to fine tune the ejection system.  Was pretty cool to see. They set up in the lane next to me.  It's about the size of the KSG but more awesome.  They've got some good things going on.  The guns keep getting smaller and smaller.  Combine this with a silencer and you have a very nice, compact shooting package.

Shotguns / Re: Over the counter buckshot loads: My observations -

My point exactly.  Everything we know about shotgunning and what it takes for good patterns - is essentially thrown out the window with the Hevi-Shot loads.

When I get home, I am thinking of bottling some mead. I will snap some pictures when I do.

  As I mentioned earlier, it appears that there were no more gunmen, just the chaos and confusion which is a part of these events. It's looking to be a "Lone Rat Attack".

Here I play FTL some more. 

Less than 15 minutes.  Which means I cut out about an HOUR of game-play.
