No he isn't, him and Grey are just having a drawn out lover's spat.
You should check out the CFC website, the legalities of what can and can't be fabricated are there somewhere. It won't take much of a search, I don't have the links offhand but I found it pretty easily when I was surfing their site one day.
Just because the items are available for purchase from a vendor doesn't make it legal for them to be produced like Drac thinks. Same goes for pyro, which is why I won't make my own. There's plenty of off the shelf stuff available, you just have to look for it. Also, just because I have access to a 5 axis CNC milling machine doesn't mean I can fabricate my own brake calipers for my car. Sure I can do
it, but they're not legal as they wouldn't have any DOT certification. It's the same sort of idea here.
I'm not trying to be a party pooper here, I'm just saying be careful and be aware of what you get yourself into.
