Rich Graham – Tactical Internet Fail

Since the last post was incredibly long I figured such an extreme FAIL deserved its own post.

Note the WHOIS information for his rebuttal comment in the fog of derp post:

And the WHOIS info for the person “Poppy” who just responded to that comment:

LOL Rich, you may think you know something about firearms training, but you obviously know absolutely zero about computers and the internet . You just lost all credibility by responding to your own comment under a fake name.

Incredible FAIL bro…

If you’re that insecure with your training methods that you have to type a page long rebuttal to my post, then try to be sneaky and agree with yourself under a different name, maybe it’s time to quit posting on YouTube?

Bwahahah!!! Call the cyber police! He’s got your email!

Stay classy Rich, stay classy.

Hey, I don’t know who this guy is but you guys shouldn’t be so hard on him.

Yo, fatty. Lay off the twinkies and blogging for a bit and get outside. Do a little exercise. It does wonders for the soul.

Hooyah 195…

But they’re so delicious.


jpcmt September 6, 2011 at 08:27 am

Orrrr…someone from that address (which is a public IP address, not a private address inside that domain) who knows him commented to support him.


Dillankid September 6, 2011 at 08:33 am

Leaning towards this…still, there is no excuse for the music choice.


ENDO-Mike September 6, 2011 at 01:13 pm

Different computer, different person? Sure maybe. That could have happened, but considering there were less than 5 people subscribed to the comments on that post (all email addresses I recognize) he would have had to tell “poppy” to go there and write that supportive comment (which is equally as lame).

I googled the email address, and it’s shown as being used a few place, one of them being a online honda marketplace. see link –
According to this link ( ) it looks like the email address owner is “Justin” who in 2008 lived in Howell, NJ.


Dillankid September 6, 2011 at 01:20 pm

Sir, you are good at research. Remind me to never get on your bad side ;-)


Frank September 6, 2011 at 09:22 am

If Rich blames that extra comment – poppy’s – on a roommate I’m going to flip out worse than a team of ninjas.


ENDO-Mike September 6, 2011 at 12:51 pm

hahaha yea, definitely going to be his roommate or his mom.


Terriligunn September 6, 2011 at 09:31 am

Honestly I was kinda thinking about revising my thoughts after reading his fairly well worded and intelligent comment in reply. Then this happens, full retreat from possible victory.
I don’t go in for a lot of the internet meme and cliche’ but this one is pure “FAIL”.


Ski September 6, 2011 at 09:48 am

This is actually a pretty common thing on the internet or at least on websites that don’t require registration. I’m not surprised to see it happening here. I will say that Rich’s explanation of his tactics and the video in general were pretty valid. The “Fight Socialism” banner still makes me cringe though. If it weren’t for that I’d probably consider taking his class.


Josh September 6, 2011 at 10:19 am

That’s hilarious. Good catch Mike!


MROD September 6, 2011 at 12:30 pm

He obviously is a NAVY SEAL REJECT ..


What-do-I-know-anyway? September 6, 2011 at 12:43 pm

…and then he goes and does something like that. I sure hope it goes back to the public IP address, cuz if not, that would be a sad statement towards his character…


Sid September 6, 2011 at 02:58 pm

So, according to your logic… each of the voices in my head should get their own IP address?


ENDO-Mike September 6, 2011 at 03:40 pm

The possibility of someone on the same subnet as him, with the exact same IP as him randomly commenting on the post he JUST MADE is too much of a coincidence to even bother worrying about.


Josh September 6, 2011 at 03:47 pm

…exact same IP as him randomly commenting on the post he JUST MADE is too much of a coincidence…

And, although a search for the IP address says that those emails came from Florida, both Rich and “Justin” from the Honda forum are from New Jersey. I can’t imagine anybody seriously believing this is all just coincidence.


Josh September 6, 2011 at 03:53 pm

Oh, another coincidence – according to the Trident Fitness websites calendar of events, Rich Graham is in Apopka, FL (17 miles from the town of Oveido where the IP is registered) for an event today.

I’m sure this “Justin” character just flew down to Florida for a day of training. *eyes rolling*

I don’t doubt that you completed BUDS training Mr. Graham, and maybe even served on a team (although that information is suspiciously absent in every biography entry I’ve been able to find on you), but that doesn’t mean that you’re not also a world-class douche.


ENDO-Mike September 7, 2011 at 12:30 am

LOL and…. checkmate.


Poppy September 6, 2011 at 03:58 pm

It is a coincidence, Rich Graham is an intensely persuasive and charismatic writer, I chose to support his point because he is clearly a revolutionary firearms instructor who is decades ahead of everyone else in terms of technique. That “IP address” is clearly a fake, one created to slander Rick Graham’s immaculate reputation. You guys are all just jealous.

I wish I was Rich Graham, I really do. I often can’t sleep at night, and when I do I just cry myself sleep. Because neither I nor you will ever, EVER be as great as Rich Graham. He is a national treasure, NAY, a gift to humanity, one that is both infallible and (most likely) incredibly well-endowed.


Josh September 6, 2011 at 04:02 pm



Poppy September 6, 2011 at 04:16 pm

And yes, I did fly down to Florida, and Mister Graham was benevolent enough to let me use his computer.

That’s right people, I GOT TO TOUCH SOMETHING OF RICH GRAHAM’S. It was the greatest moment of my life. When I make love to my girlfriend, I close my eyes and WISH I was with Rich Graham. Not because I desire such a perfect example of manliness, what can only be described as my military Adonis, as an object of vulgar lust (although if he asked I wouldn’t refuse) but because Rich Graham’s training seminars are literally better than sex.

Where was I? Oh, right, surfing the web on RICH GRAHAM’S COMPUTER. I read what can only be described as hate speech, and simply could not allow such, blasphemy (and that’s what it is by the way, there’s no other word for it) to stand! So I wrote a long and in-depth rebuttal of all arguments directed against this perfect man.

Graham is right, everyone else is wrong. PERIOD.

I’m home now, so my IP address is different, but I will continue to support Graham.


Josh September 6, 2011 at 04:47 pm

…I close my eyes and WISH I was with Rich Graham.

Wishful thinking calls for the use of the subjunctive form of the verb. You should say “I close my eyes and wish I were with Rich Graham.

I think Mike should check the IP address on these posts against those of other frequent commenters. All this talk of manliness, military Adonis, and vulgar lust towards a man sounds like something from someone whose name I won’t mention, but starts with a big gay “F.” LOL (That and the fact that it’s pretty clever and well written.)


Poppy September 6, 2011 at 05:24 pm

There was nothing wrong with the verb I used, you’ve just learned English wrong.

I attended Rich Graham’s “Trident English: Writing Under Fire.” There I learned that Navy Seals don’t have time for wimpy-ass words like “were” and “supplementary.” They’re much too busy beating down terrorists with their fists, and engaging in eight-ways with Brazilian supermodels. At least, that’s what Rich Graham said the SEALs were like.

I learned that if you want to write like a badass operator, don’t use your brain. WRITE WITH YOUR BALLS. Making up your own meaning for words is an American tradition, just ask Thomas Jefferson. Or you could ask an even greater American Patriot, RICH GRAHAM.


Josh September 6, 2011 at 05:26 pm

I wish I could reach through the internet and punch you in the throat.


Poppy September 6, 2011 at 06:12 pm

As if that would hurt me, I’m wearing like 20 pounds of black ops tactical gear. Which includes an awesome Delta Force Kevlar neck-guard. It’s attached to my military mag-vest, which not only helps conceal my massive girth, but also automatically makes me a total badass.

When I go to the mall all the girls stare and mothers hide away shield away their children, because of how awesome I am. And you know how I GET to the mall? I drive a straight-up black ops tactical Prius. That bitch is black and has RAILS on the freakin’ steering wheel! That makes me, like, half SEAL by default.

But back to my original point, I am awesome, and punching me in the neck would only serve to bruise your knuckles.

Someone needs to save that entire conversation for the ENDO Hall of Fame.

Dillankid September 7, 2011 at 07:30 am

You put a lot of effort into this…probably too much to be normal, but I laughed anyway. So thanks :-)


Poppy September 7, 2011 at 06:42 pm

Then my mission is comprete.

Successful troll is successful :D

I’d reward you if i could. Here, take Obama’s Transparency Award. You deserve it more than he does :/


Poppy September 8, 2011 at 01:35 am

Can I get his Peace Prize instead? As far as I know I’ve never straight-up killed anyone, committed a major felony or orchestrated any terrorist attacks. I’ve even volunteered at my local church! You could say that I’ve “helped to perpetuate domestic tranquility and rule of law.”

I mean, that’s more than you can say about Yassir Arafat.

Sid September 6, 2011 at 10:02 pm

Please know that I support you. He was busted. No hiding from the truth.

My comment is that each pretend character I build in my mind must get a different IP address. Which is what this clown failed to do. He got caught attempting to be a ventriloquist on the internet.


Josh September 6, 2011 at 03:42 pm

each of the voices in my head should get their own IP address

And their own prescription medication.


Sid September 7, 2011 at 09:14 am


They argue too much. I just swallow whatever is in the cup the orderly slides through the door slot and let them decide which pill was for which voice. I don’t have time or mental stability to decide who gets which medication.


Phil September 6, 2011 at 03:27 pm

rich is what is known in the industry as a “keyboard warrior” and he failed so hard at that he might as well take up bowling or something.

I’ve been lurking for months on here, but simply had to make a post saying that this was hilarious. GJ Mike!


That one guy September 6, 2011 at 11:54 pm

I stop looking at this blog for a few days and then this happens O.o

Thank you everyday, no days off gun blog. You make awesome stuff happen.


Legacy September 6, 2011 at 11:58 pm

I believe Richard here needs to learn a thing or two about OPSEC, of which there is MORE than enough on this blog to get the ball rolling Richy boy.


Ed September 7, 2011 at 03:03 am

I just don’t understand.
He was very polite and even professional in this post. It was decently written, and he presented his side of the story very well.
Then we have the next post by “Poppy” which just ruined the whole thought out response he had made.


yeah September 7, 2011 at 01:37 pm

Picture of Seal Class 236 is listed on Is this douchebag in the picture?


Chris September 7, 2011 at 02:28 pm

He’s the bush on the left.


Josh September 7, 2011 at 05:44 pm

Is this douchebag in the picture?

He is.
