Did some searching and couldn't find anything about him, I can't be the first person to ask about this guy on ARFCOM.



Anyways...what's the deal with this dude?



http://www.youtube.com/user/FPSRussia#p/u/8/dSp7CipN1pw



Apparently, he's a civilian...but he's playing with shit like a Glock 17 and an AA-12.   Is he .mil?  Are these movie props with really awesome video editing mixed in? Is the accent faked? At one point in one of the videos he mentions not being able to show off his ballistic knife as promised due to a "threat" he received about it in a phone call from the FBI or some shit.

I've read that he's associated with a Class 3/SOT shop somewhere in Georgia.

That's what I was thinking.  I figured he lived in a Class 3 state and ran a shop, or worked for a shop.  Does this still limit him to pre-86 automatics unless he's LE or .mil?

I don't know if it was the Glock 17 or Glock 18.  I'm an XD guy and don't find it necessary to know much about hand grenades.

The indoor range in his videos is at Guns & Gear, just off I85 in Lavonia, GA,  I don' t think he works there, though.  Must be a local.

SOT can get whatever they want with a Department letterhead. He uses a Glock 17,18, 1nd 19 in his videos. The 17 and 19 have the drop in sear.

But like the Glocks, couldn't that also be a pre-86 firearm?  The AA-12 was designed in 1972. I haven't watched all his videos to see if he has any post-86 shit, and it was my understanding only LE and .mil could own post-86 firearms...not even Class 3 dealers.  I'm not in a class 3 state so my knowledge on this topic isn't the best.

He mentions an LE sign-off on post-86 items, which I believe a poster mentioned above already.  I had no idea this was possible.

Hes an American dude who does a fake Russian accent. He has a deal with the shop where he directs web traffic their way and they let him play with their toys. Depending on whatever SOT they have they will also have the ability to manufacture new MGs just not for sale to the public.

If the shop is an 01/03 they can get all the post samples they want but they need demo letters. If they are an 07/02 they can go that route or just make what ever they want. Been watching his videos. I believe all his guns are the semi stuff like his gold plated AK, 1911's, bolt guns. The shop stuff is the AA12's , 240's, that kinda stuff. His accent is definatly fake but the videos are entertainment. Lot of them there is no eye protection or sometimes ear protection and he sweeps the cameraman, but they are still amusing.

He pulls out the same Desert Eagle a couple of times in the vid. In fact the Epic Meal Time annoying ass front man asks if he can pull the trigger at the end. Works the slide and everything. You can tell it's the genuine article. That and the asswipe obviously has no common sense.

SOT's can get demo letters for anything. I could go down to my PD tomorrow and ask the Chief of police for a demo letter for an MG42, he types one up and signs it for me and i go find another dealer who has one or 02 to make me one. I do the demo for the police department and they think it fires too fast and i keep in as a post sample on a form 3. The dealer does not HAVE TO sell the gun to anybody. I can bring that gun to the range and charge people $100 a belt or what ever i want to let them shoot the gun and the ATF wouldn't say anything about it.
