Canadian Firearms Training For The Maple Syrup Militia

Shadow Force out of Red Deer Alberta:

0:13 – Everyone takes a tactical knee when the instructor is speaking

0:15 – Oh a wet floor?  They must have done that on purpose using the buckets earlier.  Getting rid of that new gear look / smell.

0:29 – Tactical T-rex cracking a joke for the lady in the group.  She’s loving it evidently.

2:09 – Yessssssssss exaggerated derp scans in Canada!  They made it!  I suppose with the internet it was only a matter of time.  In the old days news of the derp scan would have been spread by nomadic people through legend.

2:47 – Jimi Hendrix style slide on his knees through the water on the floor… to put his hands in the water filled rubbermaid THEN gets water dumped all on his back and head only to grab the submerged handgun and stand up and start shooting at the targets haha.

3:11 – Oh sweet lord what’s going on here?  Assembly from field stripped while their heads are submerged in water buckets?  SIGN ME THE FUCK UP, I need to train like I fight and I normally fight like that.


4:21 – Gotta practice those pistol head poke then executions.

4:39 – LOL this is borderline abuse.  Did that guy consent?  Took him down hard too before they doused him with that 5 gallon.  He got up like a boss those and grabbed that submerged pistol and got into the fight.

Maple Syrup Militia. More about these guys over at their website Shadow Force.  Thoughts?

    So one of the things I learned in BJJ is that if you like your training partner, you DON’T take him or her straight back from that double kneeling position. It puts a lot of torque on the knees and ankles. Instead you take him sideways – accomplishes the same thing, prevents an ACL tear/ankle sprain. So that bit at 4:39 was painful to watch.

    1. This was the first thing that went thru my mind seeing that as well…

    This is super high speed low drag stuff, but have they ever thought of throwing some jello packets in the buckets too? Operator level would at least hit +632.

  3. Has anyone heard about way nuts tactical? Cause I made that shit up and it’s already CORE AS Fuck. tm

  4. 4 seconds in and I’m annoyed. I spend a lot of time reviewing documents. They italicized all but the first 2 letters of Red Deer Training Centre. ANIMALS!

      That shit made my eyes twitch. I’m glad I’m not the only one was bothered by that.

    Not even a minute into it and they’re already fumbling around with their weak hand and muzzling everyone to their right. Lotsa fingers near those triggers, kids.

  7. I don’t understand what the objective of these drills. What are they trying to teach?
    It seems a lot of these schools just try to do things that seem hardcore and “operator” just because they saw something similar from a special operations forces school. Those all had a point to them and these are just dumb af.

  8. I’ve never understood the tactical applications for speed/challenge/blind assembly of a firearm… maybe Canada is different, but I keep my handguns assembled. It’s not about clearing jams, or squibs because they clearly aren’t practicing for that. Also you don’t need to fully fieldstrip to clear.

    My guess is, that it is all about penis length, and I just showed that I’ve come up short. Time to break both thumbs, get blindfolded, and jump into a tank full of cobras with a disassembled handgun.

      Haha at your last paragraph. It’s the only way man. Take videos and get at me! ;)

    2. What if you’re caught infiltrating downtown Toronto to fix a hockey game and you’re tied to a bucket of ice water after being waterboarded and the guard looks away for a moment, having stopped in the middle of disassembling his sidearm? This doesn’t seem so dumb now, eh?

      1. I didn’t think about that.

        I was under the impression that Canadians don’t waterboarding or tie people up. Something more like this:

          haha nice. I really should start watching past episodes of Family guy.

  10. 4:30, mags are backwards. Entertaining video of people who were conned out of their loonies.

    How can I even watch this shit? 4 guys and 4 buckets, not very dramatic. Let’s take away 3 buckets and fill the last one with a mixture of egg, water, constarch, yogurt and salt and see whose really commited to victory.

  12. Video is gone! Add another one to a long list that ENDO has ridiculed into removal.

    The Maple Syrup Militia is a bunch of backwoods dudes here in NH.

    Show some respect for the defenders of the Milk from the Tit of the Mother Maple!

    Death to Aunt Jemima and her corn syrup infidel bastards

    1. my wife is from geauga co. OH, which she claims is the maple syrup capital of the US of A. I tell she’s full of it and they just ship their shit in from you guys.
      I’ve never seen a maple tree anywhere there.

      And I agree, death to auntie J and the corn lobby. I prefer to have my throat NOT be cauterized by


      as I eat my breakfast.

      Give me that shit from the trees, son.

  14. I hear they’re offering a new class:

    You’ve got to reassemble your field stripped weapon and put two rounds center-mass with a hockey jersey pulled over your head in a darkened shoot house, while your buddy stands right next to the target.

  15. Video went private. HMMMMMM wonder why? LOL

      Yessssas. Someone reupped so it’s back now for good. Hah

  16. i thought putting your thumb to the back of the slide is kinda not safe. like at 1:23.
    i mean, i understand what the point is but isn’t it kinda sorta dangerous?

      Nah people do that all the time to be cool rather than use snap caps for some reason. A lot of vids on YouTube demonstrating the force it exerts.
