If you have kept up with the popular YouTube Channel FPS Russia you know that he does some pretty crazy stuff with guns and explosions.
Seems that the ATF took a fancy to him as well for this past Tuesday nearly 40 agents descended upon his father’s property in Georgia in a raid searching for “illegal explosives”. [full story]
ATF spokes Richard Coes declared ”The claim is that he was using explosives and getting paid for it via YouTube,” Coes said.
No arrests were made and seemed that FPS is still active on twitter so it looks as if it all ended well for him.
I have personally shot a video with FPS Russia for a Top Shot promotion and I’ll admit he does like his explosions. Just for kicks they blew half a round bale of hay to kingdom come with a box of leftover “InTheRedExplosives” – a completely legal binary compound commonly referred to as “tannerite”. A bit excessive? Maybe. Illegal and warranting a raid? No.
I’ve even used some of these targets myself at the Youth Marksmanship Camps. Does this mean our kids camp be raided soon? These are the 3 oz rimfire targets in this video:
