He hit the timeline with these three thirsty pics today:

Much like the Chris Costa lever action pics I posted today, these VODA pics have a LOT of single dad energy ⚡️.  Do I blame him for trying to leverage his 2065 person follower count to try and court a new attractive tactical lady? I absolutely support it, go off king.

Google translation of all the captions:

Yes, I am a professional photographer; but I will never forget who I trained with. 7 years ago I opened VODA INC. and taught ordinary civilians how to shoot firearms [Gun-Fighting]. Even across the US, my home and I love being here – I will always be, accordingly, pro-Russian, and I will always love Russian weapons systems.

Ah ok, pro Russian but with a German gun in the pics.. got it.  My guess is VODA disappeared initially because he was irritated that Detroit D.U.S.T. bozo was getting so much attention for not even being as dumb as VODA is/was.  The problem was, VODA wasn’t marketing himself well enough.  This new “pRo RuSsiA / PrO PutiN” scheme is definitely an attention grab.  Once again, shitty marketing… it’s not even shocking.  If he wants to make it in the mainstream of the firearms derp content industry he’s really going to have to start doing better.  I’m talking shockingly dumb videos doing shockingly dumb stuff + showing so much conviction that what you’re demonstrating is actually 100% infallible and indisputable.. like old school VODA turned up to 11 and without silencing the detractors through bans, deleted comments and limiting comments.  As always, I’m available for consulting if you ever want to hit me up VODA.  I know you read this blog because you block me on IG whenever you get a new account.

Yes, you read that right… CONDITION TREE:

Fire extinguisher in frame, just in case this dumpster fire gets away. 😏

Cute pearl bracelet bro.



As he says “VODA do what VODA Do”… and in this case, it’s re-uploading a lot of his old videos.  There are also some I haven’t seen… but it’s tough to say if I just missed them or if they are AcKSHuLLy new.  Typically I’d do what I call a “Hair line check” on him, but I just don’t have the gusto to collect the data points at the moment.

That’s just a small sample of what he posted in the last few days on his channel.  You could pick any video out, and the Dunning-Kruger effect is painfully overbearing.  This guy really needs to create a full length movie.  Honestly, I guarantee it would be so off the wall… a beautiful tragedy.  He could screen it at Sundance Film Festival and it would be an instant hit.. turning into a cult classic.  This new found attention would no doubt pour gasoline on the already rampant content dumpster fire.



ECK system (where he uses a damn knife) in tow:

This guy is WAAAAAAAAY to highspeed for his own good.  You know how your parents always told you not to run with knives?  The same rule should apply to quickly manipulating a gun in front of your face while holding a knife. Yikes.

Oh and after the above video finished, this showed up in my youtube recommended videos 😂😂😂… a pure gold summary of some of his gun related tomfoolery:



This is a pandemic in itself, training like he fights:

YIKES.  As you can see if you scroll through the rest of his account, he’s still up to his usually shenanigans.

He seems to get new accounts quite often.  I used to be able to keep up, but now he literally blocks me before I even find out about them.  Luckily I’ve got shooters out there who send the new @ my way.  To me, his personality would suggest he’s not the type to block people who talk about him, but I guess I’m obviously wrong.  99% of the comments on all his post are roasting him, yet he doesn’t lock those down.

VODA looking like Young Jeezy playing a pallbearer in a bad movie:

I have to respect the fact that VODA still does these videos for the sport of it.  Barely anyone is watching them, and you know he’s not making any money off them, so it’s just out of love for the game.

2:44 – I love when he gets all condescending about how theres a guy out of new york who makes custom suits for what “you would refer to as bodyguards” … but people in the business like him would call executive protection / personal protection officers.  Wow so glad I was put in my place haha.

3:10 – I knew this was going to be headed into “shadow carry” territory.  I have a couple blog posts about his earlier videos on that thing he invented (here and here), but naturally he nuked them like he does from time to time.   He goes over what it is again in this video regardless… groundbreaking stuff haha.

4:08 – Oh god… this has to be trolling… fellas… he shows that he’s shadow carrying an AR-15 magazine.  No big deal I thought… he probably carries some sort of AR.   WRONG.  He goes on to say that even though he’s not an AR person he carries it just in case he runs into someone with an AR.  Then at 4:51 he says “I don’t need to carry a bunch of things that are irrelevant to the mission at hand.”  Pure gold.

5:45 – Oh damn here goes a demo of drawing with a suit jacket on from the shadow carry method.  *golf clap*
