Went for a drive in the middle of the night with the guy I was seeing at the time... he wanted to show me where he grew up. I can't even begin to describe the feeling of walking around a military base in the middle of the night, so much fun :)

I agree. The C7 if anything is a crapload lighter than the FNFAL and a lot more highly engineered. I'm not the biggest fan of the C9 but the C6 is still old reliable.

C6 is probably one of best support weapons out there. The accuracy in the sustained fire role is pretty scary.

Lets put it all into perspective..


Let's compare Canada, who'se army is used domestically for variosu duties and internationally on UN mandated peacekeeping operations. To the US whcih is the first GLOBAL empire and has a military base stationed on every corner of the earth, in almost 500 other countries.


Canada:
Military manpower - availability: males age 15-49: 8,391,120 (2003 est.)
Military manpower - fit for military service: males age 15-49: 7,158,016 (2003 est.)
Military expenditures - dollar figure: $7.861 billion (FY01/02)
Military expenditures - percent of GDP: 1.1% (FY01/02)

United States:
Military manpower - availability: males age 15-49: 73,597,731 (2003 est.)
Military manpower - fit for military service: NA (National Security eh?!)
Military expenditures - dollar figure: $276.7 billion (FY99 est.)
Military expenditures - percent of GDP: 3.2% (FY99 est.)

So on average, Canada relatively spends about a third of what the US does on it's military, and Canada is not maintaining a globally present force. I'd say that's about right.
