    $17,500 is the ballpark right now for US soldiers. It's very possible the Liberals are outfitting the CAF based on that bit of history.
    The most important part of gun rights isn’t “gun,” it’s “rights.”

    The Conservatives never outfitted my brother in law all that well on this tour to Afghanistan. His POS Browning high power rattled and clunked. A joke. I offered to send him a Glock 17 or 22.

    I was a Tank / Leo 1 driver in Afghanistan, and was also issued a Browning HP. Mine was built in '47 i think and the pistol wasn't the problem, it was always the magazines. The followers would always stick at the bottom when loaded, and the rounds literally could fall out of the mag when inverted. I tried everything to get them to work, only put in 10 rounds, tried oiling, tried not oiling, tried dry lube, even tried stretching to mag spring for more power. Nothing would work.

    It always fired the round in the chamber perfect, and i guess you only need one if the tank caught on fire.

    Thats the way I saw it. Had a C-8 for an actual small arms firefight, and I always had my pistol with me inside the tank.
    I am proud supporter of the: Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP, Firefighters, Paramedics, Border Control
    Basically, if your put your life in danger to better this country, you have my respect.

    5 bullets per soldier. Hmm. I don’t think that shows a lot of faith in the survival rate.
    If I were going into combat, I hope my government would give me at least 10 rounds.
