wow....


The CW03 to medical retirement from the army to police officer to ATF agent seemed improbable but not impossible. Its a lot to do but with the right attitude & drive it is possible. I bought it - all of it.


Thank you for bringing this to light

wow, just wow

im not going to lie, like most of the people here, i belived most of the things that he said. Some of it however i didnt, like i remember he said he had a collection of cigars worth over 100,000. In the back of my head i always thought he was bsing, i dont think i ever really wanted to belive it.

Im the type of person who never divulges information about my self over the internet. Not my name, where i live, bday, age, anything. I always found it strange that I actually trusted people here enough to give any info on me at all. Il be honest ive always liked this place for that reason, the "family" enviorment.

im not going to lie, it feels a bit odd now though...........

Wow. Just wow. :?: :huh:

I questioned his credentials, but this is the internet. I'm sorry some of you all got hurt so much more by this guy. I guess everything else's pretty much been said...

tomorrow brings another day. Fresh beginnings for all. :patriot:

Just curious, with him gone is it okay to say the word "Airsoft" again?


also, what happened to his post count? was it reset?

and with him gone, does that mean there's an opportunity for fractional Ownership in EA?

Wow, I actually thought he was a decent guy.
I know I'm not the oldest of the forum members, but everytime I talked to him he made me feel kinda like small, worthless. (Even though I had only ordered from EA once. I'm a poor college student and can barely afford rent.)
I'm sorry for Lisa & Jay with how they had to take the brunt of it. My best wishes are with you, and this makes me question people even more. Thank you for being truthful with us.

Ryan chose to delete all of his posts, as he has the right to do, as does everyone else if they feel the need to. Posts are property of the user who has posted them.

Of course, as long as you understand completely that airsoft and firearms are two completely different subjects and should not be mixed :D

Oh, and he also attempted to give everyone access to every part of the forum, but somehow managed to not to, thank goodness. And he tried clearing the admin/mod logs to cover his tracks.

If I hold a lighter to my airsoft, it becomes a firearm (uses propane for propellant)

Ahh, I was just wondering. I didnt think you all would delete his posts, just curious.

What doesn't Kill you makes ya stronger. I guess we all are stronger now. Perhaps more jaded too, but stronger still.

WOW!

IS there any reason to question his ability/expertise in loading the ammuntion that was sold to EA customers, or was that one thing he did with good mindset?

I know a person who has a tale of lies similiar to this. At one point he had stated he had a performance business located in a few cities over. He had sold rims to a local and three days before he was going to deliver them to that guy, his house got robbed and the rims were stolen. I happened accross that automotive forum one day, and had stumbled upon such posts by him. I informed the person he frauded and from that day, I've never trusted a word that man says.

No. For the most part all of the ammunition loaded the last 2 months has been loaded by me. Currently no one else is loading. Before that 50/50 but I have been watching him like you would not believe the last 6 months. So much so he did not like it. Lisa has been hand checking every loaded cartridge one at a time since. We had one lot of bad primers get out. The total run went to 2 people and we have since replaced that ammunition.

Seems like alot of lies were told to gain the affirmation and love of others. Panzer and PanzermkII I continue to wish EA and your family the best... I'm sorry that you have had to go through this much pain.

I do not know Ryan as much as you guys do, but I agree with the fact that no matter how unloved, lonely you are or what mental illness you have it does not excuse yourself from getting help rather than hurting those who love you.

After you tell a lie for so long, you start believing it. I agree with ferret when he said

"There is really only one thing that we as a forum expect from every person on here, is that you're truthful about yourself."

in the end the truth will surface.

Lets not forget that Ryan still is a member of this forum and at any time could come and refute these claims and try to prove us wrong. He has not been banned like he has done to others, we presented him with our findings and tried to allow him to just walk away w/out a fuss.

And to think we offered to have him out here at the farm so he could spend time with his daughter if that trip to DC was even real.

I guess I owe Lisa and Jay an apology too, as I kinda got a little terse with them after 9 months of Ryan taking my money and never shipping an EA order, one that they immediately sent out as soon as they became aware of the situation.

I knew about him creating trolls accounts so he could refute them, called him out on it once in PMs, after which he claimed to own Kronos Management when the forums switched over. I guess that was a lie too....

Anyway, I'll agree that it's a shame but I have neither the time nor the patience to deal with liars. The whole mental health defense is a great way for liberals to defend the violator and take away the dignity of the victims.

To Jay, Lisa, and the Forum team, thank you. I'm sure emotions are running high, but it looks like you have all approached this in a careful, methodical way. I feel stupid posting a nice goodbye message, and I've only read him for a short time. It must be hard for you who have known and worked with him. Thanks for bringing this to our attention; you respect us by doing the right thing. :patriot:

Is it April 1st? No really? I have not been very active on here for a few months but I have glanced at the forum every week. Never would I have thought anything was up. Have there been more absurd claims over the past few months that led to this doubt?

I never once questioned Ryans credentials. I was not aware of the "ATF" employee claim, although, that would have been easy to verify. (Prior pay records for all Federal Employees can be found on the Internet)

In any case, he did seem to know his stuff when it came to the 5.7x28. Is there any question about guidance given, specifically in the areas of discussion on what Is and Is Not safe?
