FPS Budget Russia – Times Are Tough Go Inna Woods

So much for expensive guns… he cops a Mosin and goes inna woods:

Not my style, but if you’re trying to go “modern tactical” for cheap I suppose it’s a pretty good option.  Like he said, surplus ammo is really easy to come by too.  I’ve seen different M44 kits that are full of picatinny rails too which some guys might like more.

FPS-RussiaI’m still optimistic, but I think FPS may have officially lost his touch.  Time will tell…

Thoughts?

I’d be pissed if I was Eric from IV888888. The rifle came from Moss Pawn/ Iraqiveteran88888 but there wasn’t even a shout-out of his channel.

What are you talking about?

Look in the description box. He has a link to the MossPawn site and 8888’s channel. And he talked about Moss Pawn like 15 seconds into the video. He also referenced the links at the end of the video.

While he did mention Moss Pawn at the beginning of the video, I agree he should have given the IV8888 channel a shout out. It seems to me some legit You Tubers (like Rated RR and IV8888) are helping FPS get back on his feet after all that unfortunate stuff happened to him, so the least he could do is take a second to endorse their channels. Also, maybe drop the goofy/terrible Russian impersonation act; to me it’s been played out for a while now. I want to like his videos, but he just seems rather full of himself… Part of the tough guy Russian act? I dunno.

Had he had Eric or Barry in the video, and gave an actual shout out, that would have been sweet for IV. Putting links in the description really does not help as much as many would think. Very few people actually click on those links.

Yeah, the Russian accent is like nails on a chalkboard to many people. Most gun enthusiasts can’t get past that phoniness, the whole silly Russian character acting crap. I guess it is appealing to young gamers though.

OK I am not even a big fan of FPS but once again he talked about MossPawn :15 seconds into the video. He linked to their site and a link to the video of the rifle in particular. He also referenced the links in the video at about the 4:25 mark.

You want him to have Barry and Eric in the video itself? (BTW, Barry hasn’t been doing YT lately and will not be in 8888 videos for an undetermined amount of time so I doubt that he would be in a FPS video anyways) Putting up links absolutely helps. I don’t know why you would say otherwise?

The accent is just his schtick…afterall he gained popularity as FPS Russia, not Kyle. Yes it is widely known it isn’t a real accent and yes it annoys some…but personally I couldn’t give a shit if I get to see some cool stuff. Is a fake accent enought to keep you away? Now if you want to get pissed for his antics getting his cameraman hit by shrapnel then have at it…but the accent thing is pretty weak. If you find him bad then just stick with RR or GY6 or whoever, no?

BTW, weren’t you the one who started dropping the ban hammer on anyone who left Bobs army messages after the gay google+ bullshit? Yeah I am right…I remember you saying that it was like people were carpet bombing your house or some such stupid shit. So maybe it’s just you being a little too sensitive? Just a thought.

I take it you fall into the young gamer category.

Nope. Sorry.

I take it you fall into the,”From California” category.

You are definitely the one who looked like a teenaged girl for crying so hard over the Bob’s Army stuff.

Did you notice at 4:00 or so that the slo-mo is of the first gun, and NOT the one he was firing during the relevant portion of the video?

Sloppy.

tarting up a MN reminds me of the local thugs who would buy a $500 Caprice and put 3 grand of rims and 5 grand of stereo on it.

I don’t see where all the hate is coming from. The guy references moss pawn, as mentioned previously, and the Russian accent is just part of his channel. I only click his videos when I’m bored and I’m not a subscriber. That said, if you don’t like the vids, just don’t watch them- Youtube has something for everyone. I don’t particularly enjoy Taofladermaus either, but I’m not running around bashing the guy. Besides, like he gives a shit what we think anyways… the guy makes bank.

I think I figured out what it is.

In the past, he seemed to be having fun doing what he was doing.

Now it feels like he approaches it as a job and it shows.

FPS no longer sounds like a gun guy having fun. He sounds like he’s trying to sell me a car.

And I totally responded to a comment rather than the post.
