Camouflage in Video Games: A-TACS Xbox 360 Controller

Evil Controllers has released an A-TACS FG Xbox 360 controller, and it looks great! It's cool to see the pattern gain interest from other markets, and I get the feeling we're going to be saying this about A-TACS soon:

Paintball Warfare

If there was ever to be a successful paintball "recruiting" video, this would be it. I absolutely love how much action the team on this video packed in (here's the page for the video), and unlike most cool paintball videos that would appeal to the mainstream, everyone's wearing what they should be. Before anyone says how dangerous this looks, it's not a dynamic environment, it's all choreographed. I don't think anyone in their right mind would allow for the possibility of a truck smushing a paintball player into oblivion by landing on him. A behind the scenes video for the shoot will be released tomorrow.

Blue Monkey Paintball S-RAV

While certainly not the first ones to create a paintball RC vehicle, the gents at Blue Monkey Paintball have created a nice polished little package called the S-RAV that they would appear to be selling (or selling in the near future).

On Vacation!

I'm on vacation from the 15th to the 25th, so hopefully nothing groundbreaking in the paintball world will occur in that time. I'll be mainly (and intentionally) unreachable for that time, but if there is an emergency of some sort I can be contacted at my usual email addresses, and may get a chance to read it if it's marked urgent and contains some kind of expletive in the header. It's been a whirlwind couple of months, and I'm really looking forward to blogging a lot this summer.

On the Crypsis front, the store will still be operational, and as a bit of a vacation bonus, all orders will benefit from 10% off with the code "VACAY" (without quotation marks, derp) and everything over $100 CAD before taxes will receive a bitchin' Canadian PVC Flag Patch.

Also, looking for a bit of advice. I'm headed to Ireland, so I need to know what whisky to buy there (if there's something that's worth it) or if anyone can recommend a good brand of poitín.

Paintball Marker Registration in Fredericton

A bit of old news that I haven't seen anyone talk about (which is odd as you'd think it would make the rounds in our community), is that the city of Fredericton (as the Montreal Gazette reports) has instituted a mandatory registry for "anything that shoots a projectile by means of compressed air, spring or mechanical means. That covers pellet and paintball guns and, in theory, even such toys as Nerf guns." This bylaw, bylaw S-5, applies only to the municipality of Fredericton.

I try to avoid politics as much as possible on Grey Ops, so I'd love to hear you guys weigh in with your opinions of the bylaw. Here's a link to the offical document if anyone's interested. I'd be particularly interested to know if any of our East coast readers have come into direct contact with the bylaw, and what their opinion is.

Peek at Hyde Definition's Metropolis

If you remember this post, you may find the below picture interesting:

This is a mock-up of the PenCott urban pattern now known as Metropolis. Lawrence Holsworth states that "It will work best in dim-light, built-up environments."Head on over to this Facebook post to make your opinion known, or as always feel free to fawn/smack/trash in the comment section below.

Guest Post: UPS Brokerage Avoidance

Evan is the author of the Tactical Survivor Blog, and was kind enough to furnish Grey Ops with this article. Be sure to check out his site and Like it on Facebook! - Connor

I among many others have always been ready to smash a kitten when a package shows up at the door with some absurd brokerage fee on top of my regular duties charges that I expect to owe. Well what if we didn't have to smash those adorable kittens and instead we taught our shipping companies a lesson in empowered thinking? Well my friends, I am going to tell you how to do that.
