What: OPEX (Operator Expo)

When: June 1-2, 2022

Where: Infinity Convention Centre
2901 Gibford Dr, Gloucester, ON K1V 2L9, Canada

The second annual Operator Expo (OPEX) was just announced for June 1-2 in Ottawa, CA. In their inaugural show last September, OPEX made a splash with attendees and exhibitors alike as the premiere convention for frontline professionals to meet with key industry players. This is arguably the most unique aspect of the show, as it focused on supporting the operational requirements of Military, Law Enforcement and Corrections end-users in Canada. As such, the show featured exhibitors from across the industry who specialize in the best gear, apparel, weapons systems, and training those end-users need.

Going into its sophomore year, the second annual OPEX show promises to deliver. Turnout is expected to be even higher than the previous year, as frontline professionals and their agencies look to the show for insight into industry offerings and procurement opportunities. Exhibitor turnout is also expected to be high, as the show organizers work with the Infinity Convention Centre to expand exhibitor space by approximately 40%, bringing the total number of expected vendors to approximately 80 different exhibitors.

For more information, and to register as an exhibitor or attendee, visit Registration is also free for those who wish to attend.

Note: OpEx is open ONLY to active Military, Law Enforcement, and Corrections personnel.

OpEx 21 – Woolly Pully

Tuesday, October 5th, 2021

I’m told the venerable Woolly Pully is featured in the upcoming Bond movie and demand is once again up. I’ve always loved them, having received my first sweater, a child’s version of the RAF issue sweater, from my dad when I was a kid which he purchased from a NAAFI during a TDY to the UK in the late 70s. Since then, I’ve owned a few of these so-called Commando Sweaters. Some were purchased and the others traded for, but always fond memories.

Parabellum Prime has the real deal from their British manufacturer. These are the same wool models you’ll remember, in Black, Green and Grey.
