Watched both the MG and Cannon the other night. Awsome. Like the mail call show also. You guys are right, he must have been a DI in the Marines. Sure knew how to do it in FMJ. Reminded me of my Drill Sergeant in basic by in 1970.

Born in Emporia, Kansas, Ermey enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1961, after being arrested several times as a teenager.[citation needed] A court judge gave him the choice of the military or jail.[citation needed] He later joked that the Marine Corps "put a screeching halt to my unconventional manner."[citation needed] He spent two years as a drill instructor at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, California, and Parris Island, South Carolina from 1965 to 1967. In 1968, Ermey arrived in Vietnam where he served for 14 months with the Marine Wing Support Group 17. He then served two tours of duty in Okinawa, Japan, during which he rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant (E-6) and was medically retired in 1972 for several injuries incurred during his tours. On May 17, 2002 he received an honorary promotion to Gunnery Sergeant (E-7) from Marine Corps Commandant James L. Jones in recognition of his role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann in the film Full Metal Jacket.

I watched his machine gun show last night. Was a great show. I will be recording all the upcoming shows so I don't miss any. I met Lee one time when my son graduated Marine Boot. He was the guest speaker. Great guy..................

You know he was a radio repair man in the corps. Did a little acting and now gets to shoot all the cool stuff. Why can't this happen to me. WHY GOD WHY.

Good lord I knew just as much as he did about the MG show. I also know he skipped one of the best LMG every built the BAR. It was a transition from the bigger crew serve to the smaller SMG. I am not sure why the skipped that one.

I met the Gunny at a car show in Tampa. I waited in line for 4 hours just to get to talk to him. He was very kind irl unlike his typical tv personas. He took time to talk to everyone, take photos with them and was even willing to yell at a few very lucky people.

I LOVE Mailcall and look forward to the new show.

I really wanted to comment on the Gunny's Lock & Load MG show. Not once was the Browning 1919A4 mentioned. This is one of the most used beltfeds MG's developed by JMB and was used by 1,000's of GI's WWII and the Korean war's. He did all of the other famous MG's, but not the 1919 - sad
