Well, at least the 60k salary sounds good. 60 K in Nunavut is not good. I have several friends with the govt there who make 120+ each, and they are comfortable. When you're paying $8+/4litre of milk, and all other commodities are similiarly inflated 60k is the equivalent of 40k in YYZ ie poverty or...

BTW SKS or Mini 14s are too small to be effective . You want a realy big hole going in and out. Most combat rifles of modern desing are ment to just injure a soldier not kill him. That way resources are used to keep him alive. I dont recomend anything semi auto. Risks are too great of causing a jam...

Several Years back, he wanted 12k for the King Air PPC. I counter offered that I would put the 12K into trust with my lawyer, and have a prorated payout tohim/I in the event of Layoff/shutdown, or my buggering off early. thereby protecting both parties. Was basically told to go piss up rope. This gu...

medby, I grew up north of 60 the reason for buck/slug is because when it's that close and personal read hi stress you want to increase your hit probabilty. I think this was covered before. btw a pistol grip riot gun has a much larger chance of hitting what you aim for than any one hand pistol from m...

the diesel conversion is only 135 hp, but because it has more torque at a lower rpm it has more static thrust and above say 5000' it gives better performance as it' s turbocharged

bruce, the lake is probably the worst a/c for a low time pilot due to pitch power coupling, porpoising and a raft of other problems. not to mention docking anywhere except schwatka will be quite a challenge. for the same price buy a maule or 180 and do a leaseback with gerd or Derek.
