    Not terribly accurate on full auto, but holy cow.

    Apparently in Russia, this thing is civilian legal? I wonder what permits it takes there.

    I think every time someone asks "what gun is best for zombies?" I might post this link.

    Ahh. The fellow formally known as FPSKyle, except with a fake Russian accent now. I'm surprised to see him finally put on a pair of ear muffs. He usually never wears eye or ear protection at all, which makes himself look like a fool. I desperately wish I could watch the behind-the-scenes video of when he took the pepper spray in the eyes.

    I believe it is a Soviet 37mm anti-aircraft gun.

    Russian? No.

    If you want to hear Kyle speak normally, you can listen to him talk here: http://www.youtube.com/user/FPSKyle

    I presume that he's making some very good money selling FPSRussia garb like t-shirts, stickers, and whatnot. His YouTube videos are viewed hundreds of thousands of times, within a matter of days of him posting a new one. There are well over 800,000 subscribers to his channel. There have been well over 100,000,000 views of his videos altogether. Take just a very small percentage of the people watching, and sell them something like a t-shirt, and you can start to make some serious money.

    I think it is probably a 40mm Bofors.

    He sounds like quite the capitalist. I hadn't seen or heard of him before, but the accent did seem... off.

    He's played with some fun stuff. He's probably making a lot of money.

    I wish I were doing that. :eek:

    He needs to wear some ear and eye protection though. That part doesn't impress me at all.

    He starts his videos with a communist sickle and hammer symbol and fake soviet accent to promote his capitalistic and profit making agenda. While offering for sale an expensive piece of machinery to a limited market consisting primarily of the bourgeoisie.
    You have to appreciate the irony there.

    All while typically failing to use hearing and eye protection.


    None of it makes sense, but then it doesn't have to if it works.

    Can that actually be owned by civilians? Seems like it'd be considered a destructive device, and who'd have a tax stamp on a thing like that?

    Guns like that are registered as both a machine gun and a destructive device, so you need two tax stamps to transfer. Ammo is unregulated unless it's HE (or anything with more than 1/4oz of explosive in the projectile), in which case each cartridge is also a registered DD.

    There are actually plenty of folks out there with registered live artillery pieces. The cost to play is higher than machine guns, though, because the ammo cost for something like a Bofors is nuts. I know a fellow with a 25mm Puteaux AT cannon, and last time I saw ammo available for it the price was $800 for an 8-round case.

    FWIW...he gets access to these things partly through a FFL of some sort, and he works for an online video game community called Machinima
