Back to BMQ
« on: April 03, 2019, 21:56:20 »
I'm looking for some sound advice for returning to BMQ. Dont laugh but I broke my ankle during my force test. So didn't even finish week 2. Near the end of my 6 weeks in a cast, my crutches slipped out from under me (due to Quebecs famous freezing rain) and I hurt my back. Long story short they sent me home to heal. I did so.e admin work at my local armory till I was fit to return and an opening came up in a new platoon. I go back April 15, 2019. I have been in for a year and a half but literally no BMQ training. Advice so I am not walking around with a target on my back. Praying they dont think I have experience, 2 weeks of BMQ in my opinion is not experienced. Tips please. Btw I cant wait to finish what I started.

It was a good read and sound advice. I didnt need the shave advice lol but I like the idea of the shave brush for dusting the weapons. I will make it a point to get one.👍

Stupid question and I'm sure I already know the answer,  tomorrow is the day I fly out to BMQ, what are your thoughts and opinions on whether or not I would be able to go back home for Easter?
