Gun Pr0n for Gamers

FPS Russia logo

Sorry about the title; I didn't know how else to put it. K and I somehow just discovered this little Youtube channel called FPS Russia that has over half a billion views. And the premise is exactly like it sounds like: a Russian gun enthusiast acquires all these not-even-remotely-legal-in-the-US weapons you see in video games and demos them in real life. Oh yeah... :)

The video that we stumbled upon was titled Top 3 Weapons to Survive the Apocalypse, which has already acquired 5 million views in 1 month.


However, his most popular video would be the AA-12 Fully Automatic Shotgun!!!, which has an astonishing 30 million views in less than 2 years. I seriously had no idea those things were so powerful and hardy!


So if you have a gamer friend who's into first person shooters, share this channel and see what they think. I'm certainly impressed. O_O

did you know about what happened to him... day after or possibly the day you were writing this blog post? He was shot to death.

Oh my goodness! It doesn't look like it was the actual host of the videos that got shot, but rather one of the crew. But still... very shocking. :(
