Get hands-on with some of the world’s fiercest firearms as Lock n' Load with R. Lee Ermey takes viewers on a fascinating ride through the pathology of a featured weapon: where it came from, who thought of it, who improved it, its victories, its defeats, its impact on history and where it is now.

In each episode of this HISTORY™ series, Gunnery Sergeant, drill instructor, Vietnam veteran and actor R. Lee Ermey will look at the inner workings of a weapon that made battlefield history. Special high-speed photography and advanced 3D graphics detail the improvements, changes in technology and thinking behind each weapon, providing a deep understanding of how the weapon has developed throughout history, from its humble, often cumbersome and even awkward beginnings, to its sheer power and precision today. It’s an enthralling tour through the origins, evolution and innovations of weapons, as Ermey delivers the story with, literally, one finger on the trigger.

• Includes an in-depth look at weaponry such as tanks, pistols, machine guns, helicopters, armoured vehicles, rifles, shotguns and much more.

• R. Lee Ermey is recognised both for his military achievements (Combat Action Ribbon, Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal) as well as his on-screen achievements (Full Metal Jacket, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre).

Such an awesome series from a funny , smart , positive can do presenter !!I first saw this on youtube and particually liked the pistol and rifle parts as those are my favorite weapon systems . I learned a great deal about their technical workings with great computer generated 3D graphics as to how they work . The other parts are very interesting too and provide an interesting back ground into various weapon systems of past and present in a humorous , light hearted presentation which really engages the viewer . Awesome stuff , and a great price !!

Larger than life Gunny R. Lee Ermey brings the complete range of weapons from pistols to tanks to our TV using excellent 3D images to illustrate the theory and then gets his hands dirty shooting everything he can get his hands on from the M1 Abrams to the Glock 18 fully auto 9mm pistol. He just loves destroying things from cars to bottles. This is a great series for anyone interested in weapons. Made by the History channel the vidoe quality is excellent as is the audio.

This set is excellent value at Amazon's current selling price.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent slice of Americana 3 Sep 2011

Americans certainly love their weapons and this series is a celebration of that. R. Lee Ermey, best known for his role in "Full Metal Jacket" is an excellent host for this series, with a real enthusiasm for the subject.
