But wait, there’s more! Thanks to an awesome response from the marketplace, Polenar Tactical have actually managed to fund this project in less than a week!! So, they’ve have decided to give away Special Edition DVD Covers – FOR FREE and move their other stretch goals down to lower amounts – that means more content for free and more easily attainable new goals!
This project is about more than just making a DVD though. It’s also about Polenar Tactical’s mission to put a human face on gun ownership and to show the positive side of ‘gun culture’ in Slovenia, Europe and the rest of the world.
Find out more, and keep up-to-date on the AK Operator DVD project here.

But seriously, why has grey suddenly become so fashionable? Why is it suddenly ‘the new black’? Grey as a tactical or low-visibility color has been around for quite a long time. Remember the German soldiers in WWI and WWII? They predominantly wore uniforms of ‘Field Grey’, and in some cases ‘Mouse Grey’ in order to reduce their visual signature.
The ‘sea wolves’ of the German U-Boat forces not only painted their submarines in a low-viz shade of grey, they also wore uniforms in a shade of grey that bears a close resemblance to the ‘Wolf Grey’ of today (as seen in this still from the movie “Das Boot”).
The US Navy also painted all of their major surface ships a famous shade known as ‘Battleship Grey’, and to this day most aircraft in the US Navy and US Air Force are painted a subtle shade of low-visibility grey.
