    Default ISF Battle group put on a spectacular display

    [FONT=Verdana]Recently the International Stabilisation Force (ISF) Battle group put on a spectacular display as a demonstration of its capability followed by a static display which was well attended by the local population.

    The display began with the securing of a landing zone for Kiwi Helicopters which inserted a section of infantry that married up with a troop of APCs. Once this exercise was completed all the vehicles lined up on a soccer field on the outskirts of Dili and set up a static display which was surrounded by curious children, teenagers and adults.

    Are their any plans in the works for non high speedy folks to get a new pistol in the ADF?

    I'm a BIG fan of the HP...I love it almost as much as the 1911.......but I'm surprised the non-ninjas haven't shifted to an HK, SIG, Glock, etc.

    Is there any blueing left on those HPs?

    I remember having to clean the SIG constantly from surface rust due to holster wear.....the cops were lucky, they had Glocks, no rust(and not a whole lotta cleaning either)
