Yes, this story would have been posted. He’s not a nobody. He’s well known and respected around here.
That’s the thing: all of these guys are. Noveske, Kyle, FPSRussia, Ayoob, 1-2 others ... They’d all garner multiple FR threads. They all went (Ayoob’s honorable mention included) within days of each other. And they’re all names which some non-shooter tasked with identifying “insider leaders” would come up with. The list might seem a bit odd to those of us inside this box, but makes a certain sense as viewed from outside by someone looking to disrupt.
Odd coincidence I hope.
I’m not one for conspiracy theories (fond of shredding them instead).
Keep an eye on the news; one more such incident and methinks things will get very ugly very fast.
Two might be a coincidence. More, not so much.
