18 September 2010 - 08:25 PMHey Moatipaintball forums customer service portion! I was wondering if the Havok Launcher holster would fit a T9 with the front shroud attached, extended barrel, and no attached flash muzzle or fake suppressor.

Quotes Canadians mourn the loss of four more fallen soldiers in Afghanistan, a videotaped segment of an American TV talk show where panelists mock Canadian soldiers as slackers is making the rounds on the Internet.
The five-minute segment, which aired recently on Fox News late-night program Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld and later posted on YouTube.com, features American panelists suggesting Canadian soldiers need time off for â€śmanicures and pedicures.â€ť
The item aired after Gen. Andrew Leslie, the Canadian Forces Chief of Land Staff, told a Senate committee the military would need a one-year break from operations after the mission in Afghanistan winds down in 2011.
â€śThe Canadian military wants to take a breather to do some yoga, paint landscapes, run on the beach in gorgeous white capri pants,â€ť Gutfeld said with a sneer.
Another panelist Doug Benson said he was unaware Canadian troops were on the ground in Afghanistan.
â€śI didnâ€™t even know they were in the war. I thought thatâ€™s where you go if you donâ€™t want to fight â€” you go chill in Canada,â€ť he said.
The segment has been posted online (www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcJn5XlbSFk) by an outraged Canadian who titled it â€śHow to Lose Friends and Alienate Countries.â€ť
Fox News was not immediately available for comment.
Ottawa-based Conservative commentator Geoff Norquay called the segment â€śinsulting and beneath contempt.â€ť
â€śIn a week when we lost four more brave soldiers, Canada deserves better from this so-called news network,â€ť he said. â€śI really wish I subscribed to Fox News so I could cancel it.â€ť
Steve Staples, director of the Ottawa-based Rideau Institute, called it a â€śshameful displayâ€ť to laugh it up at the expense of families who have lost loved ones.
â€śThe dismissal of Canadian efforts in Afghanistan simply rubs salt in the wounds of Canadian families whose sons and daughters have been injured or killed in the war.â€ť
Liberal MP and defence critic Denis Coderre urged Canadians to write to Fox News to protest the panel and said Canada should raise the issue with U.S. President Barack Obama.
â€śWhatâ€™s a disgrace is that a lot of people are watching this and it is promoting stereotypes,â€ť he said.
Calling Canadaâ€™s military â€śthe best little army in the world,â€ť retired Gen. Lewis MacKenzie lambasted the American panelists as â€śdistastefulâ€ť and showing an â€śappalling ignorance.â€ť
The bodies of the four fallen Canadian soldiers will be repatriated to Canada today, three days after their deaths in two separate bomb arracks in Afghanistan. Flag-draped caskets of Master Cpl. Scott Vernelli, 28, Cpl. Tyler Crooks, 24, Trooper Jack Bouthillier, 20, and Trooper Corey Joseph Hayes, 22, will arrive at CFB Trenton for a repatriation ceremony.
I know this sounds weird, but go Canada!
22 September 2008 - 08:42 PMDoes anyone know where I can get some OD medium sized flight suits for cheap? Opsgear only has large for about $40.
