    Rearding Novske and now this:

    Once Is Chance, Twice is Coincidence…

  2. Shootin' Buddy Says:

    You saw this moron’s “gun handling” on his videos? His complete disregard of safety? He single-handedly set the gun culture back decades.

    Not surprised. Cannot believe that jackleg lived this long.

  3. Divemedic Says:

    Yea, because poor gun handling results in being ties to a chair and shot in the back of the head.

    Don’t tell me that we have reached the stage where people are being ‘disappeared’.

  4. Ancient Woodsman Says:

    We have an administration that smuggled guns in to a foreign country, the action of which caused untold hundreds of deaths among all age groups, resulted in the murder of a U.S. federal agent, and they are sweeping it under the rug with the willing cooperation of the mass media.

    I seethed with a buring sense of injustice when the U.S. Attorney General made it a point to come to and speak at the funeral this year for one of my fallen comrades here (from an incident that I responded to), and yet he certainly would not do the same for Brian Terry or his family.

    I think we passed the stage already where they were experimenting.

    Air raid Pearl Harbor. This is no drill.

    “Yea, because poor gun handling results in being ties to a chair and shot in the back of the head.”

    No, but a stunt gone wrong could.

  6. Kdawg Says:

    I thought FPSRussia’s name is Kyle Myers. I think this person is just someone that works on the staff, and not FPSRussia himself.

  7. Who Says:

    KEITH RATLIFF is not featured in the video and is not the main FPSRussia guy. See this link for details.

  8. Jailer Says:

    FPSRussia is the 3rd most popular youtube channel? Good god.

  9. Canthros Says:

    Once is an accident. Twice is coincidence.

    Weird news, though.

  10. Lyle Says:

    They used to call that “died of a brain hemorage”. Maybe they still do.

  11. John Smith. Says:

    Sounds like someone is making a Point.

  12. Roger Says:

    Damndest case of suicide I ever hear of.

  13. Some Guy Says:

    How is it that people actually believe the government that brought you the Post Office is somehow also capable of pulling off super secret assassinations on U.S. soil?

    Seriously, not picking, I just really never got the dissonance there. Do you think there’s a branch of government that isn’t both inept and corrupt, or alternately, frighteningly competent and willing to sell their mother for a book deal (cough…SEALs…cough)?

  14. Mu Says:

    He should have never made fun of Putin’s “little gun”.

  15. John Smith. Says:

    Some Guy that is why you hire a Professional. Pay them well and you will never hear from them again.

  16. JTwig Says:

    I’m glad that you had more detail on what happend, as the all the local reports I’ve read hinted towards suicide. They would only ever say, “treated as a homicide for now”, “found alone with a single gunshot wound to the head and multiple firearms strewn around”. Comments like that leave a very different impression than, bound to chair with single wound to back of the head.

  17. Bram Says:

    They rate the popularity of “Youtube channels”? I didn’t know there was such a thing, much less they were rated.

  18. Sigivald Says:

    His “business partner” being found probably-murdered and not by thieves (who would have taken the “numerous guns” found in the area by police) does not tell me “the Government is trying to take our guns and starting by murdering hte business partner of a notionally popular YouTube channel about guns!”.

    It suggests to me, “the business partner was involved in something extremely shady involving very bad people“.

    The sort of people who tie you up and shoot you in the back of the head* for crossing them.

    (The government, in the worst case, is more likely to “randomly” decide to audit your taxes.

    Or get an “anonymous tip” about a firearms violation and come search your house with a SWAT team.

    Mob-style executions*? Not buying it, for total lack of evidence and their general incompetence – plus if the State was willing to do that to its enemies, why are all its serious detractors not dead?

    This guy is a nobody in that calculus; a business partner of a YouTube channel about shitty gun handling?)

    * Assuming the description of the death is accurate, and not invented detail; the other reports don’t seem to say that. I do not automatically trust “someone named Julie from some forum saying it’s totes true”.

  19. ATLien Says:

    Bram, not really coming down on you, but have you seen the numbers under the youtube videos you watch? That’s one way of ranking them. Subscribers is another. It’s not terribly hard to figure out.

  20. Minerva Says:

    He was so well prepared, it’s kind of shocking he’s dead.
