The perfect weaponry show. 1 hour long. It gives a detailed description of each weapon in an one hour episode. Each episode has a different genre of weaponry.(Rifle,Machine Gun,Ammo,etc.) The host, R. Lee Ermey is a movie actor and ex Marine. The Gunny (as he is called) was in the United States Marine Corp. for 9 years (1963-1972). He was a Drill instructor at San Deiago Recruit Depot for three years before going to Vietnam. He rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant. After retiring from the marines, he became a movie actor, most famously playing Gunnary Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket. In 2002, The History Channel got him to host Mail Call, which was a military oriented show in which the Gunny answerers viewers e-mails. when canceled in 2007, the History Channel brought the gunny back in 2009 for Lock and Load. To bad they canceled this show too.
