I Know Literally Nothing About Bill C-21


Sup folks. 

Maybe it's a product of thousands of people a year still visiting my Canadian Paintball Laws post, or people thinking I'm still abreast of the ins and outs of what the real deal is in the Canadian magfed/milsim paintball scene, but either way I'm getting a bunch of requests about Bill C-21.

I have no idea.

In fact, I've added another disclaimer to that Canadian Paintball Laws post I just mentioned, as with the very small amount of reading I've just done on Bill C-21 it definitely looks problematic for paintball and airsoft. I have no clue how it will shake out.

Didn't think this would be the first post I'd make in 4 years, but I definitely don't want anyone to get the impression from this page/site that I have any clue or advice to give with the current situation.

If I were to give one general piece of advice, it's to get some better advocates for getting paintballers voices' heard on Bill C-21. The videos and posts I've seen online so far do a disservice to the image of paintballers and how they fit into this new potential law. Put down your BDUs, tables of guns and rambling paper rustling and talk a friend that understands the legal landscape.

Also if it all goes belly up make sure markers get included in the buyback program so I can clear out my basement of horded crap I don't use anymore and invest in meme stocks. 

Thursday, January 12, 2017 and Goodbye?

Hi all, in a possible last piece of news for Grey Ops, I just acquired my long sought-after domain. I have a few ideas of what I'd like to use for the space, as I have a strong emotional attachment to the Grey Ops branding after all my happy years doing stuff, but it with most certainty won't look like the old space.

I never had a proper goodbye, but at this point and progression in my life, I think I can finally put the last nail in the coffin of the Grey Ops + Crypsis + Milsim + Woodsball + ©Blogging that was. It was great and awesome while it lasted, and I hope everyone I used to have a blast with is still slinging paint/pellets and hiding in backwoods hideouts across the Americas (when I put it that way, maybe I'm not missing out on much... just kidding, just kidding).

Through running Grey Ops, interactions with some truly spectacular people, Crypsis, and the myriad other things I did at the time, I learned an incredible amount both personally and professionally, so thanks everyone.

If you ever are looking to wax nostalgic or have something to kvetch about, drop me a line at (myname)

And if you're ever in Toronto/Hamilton (that's in Canada, eh), drop me a line and we can grab the intoxicant of your choice at a non-backwoods hideout.

Take care all,

One Year Later

It's been a year to the day since I last posted anything on Grey Ops. While I'd love to continue in some fashion, time and other interests (plus a move to Toronto last fall) currently prevent me from doing as much as I'd like with the space.

If anybody has any creative suggestions for Grey Ops and its continuance, please let me know, best place is through the comment section at the bottom of the post. Hope you're all doing well!

Helikon-Tex à la PenCott

From Helikon-Tex's Facebook page comes the announcement that they will be producing uniforms in the PenCott camouflage family:
"[ENG] Combat Patrol Uniform™ (CPU™) is the first to be produced in PenCott™ camo. After that Combat Shirt, Bonnie Hat and BBC Cap will come. In Q3/Q4 2013 we plan to release a new Parka. More information about our cooperation with Hyde Definition available on
CPU™ Pencott™ will make its debut on IWA 2013."
No word on what variants will be released initially, but it's a fair bet (supposition) it will (hopefully) be the triad of GreenZone SandStorm and Badlands.

You can also read about the news here on Hyde Definition's website.
