Georgia –-(Ammoland.com)- On Tuesday, U.S. Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agents raided the home of 26-year-old Kyle Myers in Royston, Ga., according to ATF spokesman Richard Coes.

Myers is the co-creator of the wildly popular “FPS Russia” videos seen on Youtube, in which various high-powered firearms are demonstrated.

The Athens Banner-Herald reported:

Federal agents, accompanied by Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents and deputies with the sheriff’s offices in Franklin and Hart counties, raided the Royston residence of Myers. Authorities also raided on Tuesday the 60-acre farm of Lamar Myers, Kyle’s father, in Lavonia.

No arrests were made, nor did Coes know if any explosives were seized. ‘The idea at one of the locations was to take firearms, but they did not do that,’ Coes said.

[…]

Myers was “known to use explosives and I don’t know if it was done with malicious intent,” Coes said, adding that Myers was blowing up cars, refrigerators and other items for entertainment purposes.

A total of 40 agents took part in the raids on the Myers’ homes, and the ATF did not report finding anything illegal on either property.

Well seeing the you tube videos of FPS Russia makes, and those videos solely. Maybe someone high-up go all little hyper, and then put out the warrant for the raid on the home. But thats just my option with no solid information to go on.

If you have an FFL license (federal firearms license) your house is an open invite to the Feds. Just like if you have a restaraunt your open to food inspection

If the Feds really wanted him they would have planted something to find. The Feds are not stupid. Except perhaps in whom they choose to work for.

He is apparently on the feds list , that is too bad , because now he will be hassled and harrassed by the feds to the point he will wish he really did live in Russia . Furthermore the counties involved need new Sheriffs because these two are apparently afraid to stand up to feds who had NO reason to conduct this so-called ” RAID ” . Of course the same is true for the state of Georgia .
