FPSRussia is one of the most well known Youtube channels on Youtube.
Georgia native Kyle Myers speaks with a Russian accent and demonstrates using some of rarest and most entertaining weapons on the planet.
Myers business partner was found murdered in his office back in January.
Police would not say if a 40+ officer raid on the actors home was in connection to that murder.
Authorities said the search was for illegal explosives.
Myers often blows up cars, refrigerators, and other objects in his Youtube videos.
According to onlineathens.com, Federal agents, accompanied by Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents and deputies with the sheriffs offices in Franklin and Hart counties, raided the Royston residence of Myers. Authorities also raided on Tuesday the 60-acre farm of Lamar Myers, Kyles father, in Lavonia.
According to Franklin County Sheriff Stevie Thomas, federal investigators descended on Carnesville and Hart County Wednesday with warrants.
On March 25th we were notified by agents with the ATF in Atlanta that they would be executing two search warrants signed by a federal magistrates, Thomas said. One (warrant) in Franklin County and one Hart County. I notified the Hart County Sheriff and at 9a Wednesday morning, our officers met with the ATF agents at the Franklin County location. They were conducting an investigation regarding the explosives the pair were using on their You Tube show, Cleveland said. They were blowing up cars and other things in Hart County on their farm. Agents were looking for explosives or anything connected to explosives that would have put them in violation of federal law. The way I understand it they were using Tannerite. Its legal up to a certain amount and agents were looking for any violations of federal guidelines, Cleveland said.
No arrests were made and authorities did not say if any explosives were found.
The FPSRussia Youtube channel has over 3.4 million subscribers, is one of the largest channels on Youtube and is the largest gun related channel on Youtube. Myers has been in several Call of Duty video game commercials and promotions as well.
Here is a sample of one of FPSRussias typical videos.
I went there your Federal bastards. Come talk to me.
Slow work day huh fellas. How about restarting Holder's Fast & Furious Ops for some excitement.
“have a nice day”
It’s about time that peace loving citizens and their precious little defenseless children were protected from fiends like this. Why, before you know it, this lunatic could be running amok at Miss Manners School for Politically Correct Little Darlings. Oh, the humanity.
We can all be thankful that in these troubling financial times, what’s left of our tax dollars are being so wisely used.
Sounds more like a send-a-message expedition to me.
Junk cars and old refrigerators will sleep easier tonight.

Covers almost anything they want to bitch about.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Oops, I tore my pillow tag.
I just tore the one off of my mattress.
Is Obama going to send his goon squad after me next?
It could easily be they justify a search for one thing in hopes of finding evidence for another, murder.
I have watched many of the videos... some are quite fun.
It will be doubly ironic if he has to move to Russia to continue his show.
Maybe yes, maybe no... but I just turned you in for a $100 reward. I also told them that you are White, armed with spooky looking black guns and that you hate Obama. Expect company first thing in the morning.
Hide your dog.
They obviously didn’t have anything better to do in Holder’s Just-us Department.
Good. You will be tracked and retagged, citizen.
This was a matter of time... I think he was ready for this after his friend was murdered. I hope he doesn’t shut down, I love his channel. /off to facebook to see what he’s posted about this.
Fishing like a mo-fo...
Tannerite is 100% legal.
When the ATF is used for political purposes the Randy Weaver/Waco events eventually ensue.
Gee. I wonder how many NSA key word filters I just triggered?
