    In fake Soviet Russia, guns shoot you.

    Sucks. One has to wonder if it was a grudge or some dumb anti or some dummy trying to steal some gunzz's.

    Damn. You don't hear that everyday. I have a feeling the story is complex.

    John Noveske was killed a few days ago, supposedly in a car accident.

    I think I need to head to Walmart and get some tinfoil.

    Interesting. I barely know what FPS Russia is/was, but Keith Ratliff was from the town I live in.

    I can only find the story on Topix - none of the local TV or newspapers are reporting it, although they would normally report something like this.

    EDIT: OK, I see - he was murdered in Georgia, but some locals were saying he was murdered in KY. Coincidentally, he is from Franklin Co., KY and was murdered in Franklin Co., GA, so there is confusion. Never mind.

  7. I personally don't even consider Franklin county to be part of Georgia.Seems like most people there are from South Carolina.

    I would submitt that FPS Russia's site is the 10th ranked site on YouTube.

    That's at least some money, how much I really have no idea.

    Gee whiz, I just found out about FPS Russia's videos earlier this morning, because of this video:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ8Ndkg8urw"]DRD Paratus-18 (Suit Case Gun) - YouTube[/ame]

    But then I looked at all the videos he's posted and was amazed at the weapons he's got, or has access to, that I know I'll never even see in person let alone shoot.

    But in the comments of the videos, most people are saying it's not the 'talent' guy you see in the videos who was killed. Don't know enough to say. :dunno:

    The guy who was killed is a web marketing guy, who may be the brains behind it, but is not the guy in the videos. Apparently it pays well, judging from what he says about his sail boat and travel and such.

    What will be interesting is to see what FPS Russia says about this situation in his next video. That is if he himself isn't involved, and if he does another video.

    I think I'll pop on over to his site and see if there is any mention of this situation in it.

    Folks, you need to watch this video.

    FPSRussia damn near gets killed/horribly maimed when be blows-up the truck. Watch the huge piece of truck come screaming back at him and barely miss him.

    That large piece that whizzes just by him on his right damn near killed him.

    Top youtube video people can make a ton of money. That combined with tshirt and other merchandising sales, he makes more than many of us do.....and he makes it by shooting cool weapons.


    His safety gear and trigger control are lacking big time though.

    I'm not 100% sure that was real. He has some hookups with top cg guys. Check out the quadracopter vid.

    I'm a fan either way.

    He's pretty good at the fake Russian accent too.
