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.

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.

Keep your powder dry and your eyes on the target! Who could question the quality when it's presented by R. Lee Ermey? Ooh-rah! As for delivery etc, all sound, arrived in good time and all that. Now, back to disc 2...

Who better to host this series than a professional US Marine, and who better as a person than R Lee Ermy. In Lock n' Load with R Lee Ermy, you get to see stunning 3D representations of the weapons, learn about their development, and actually see their use by a guy unafraid to get down and dirty trigger time with the real thing. Factual, and sometimes humorous, this series is without a doubt excellent, and excellently presented by a truly professional soldier. Other than DIY weapon use at the range, or getting your hands on a helicopter gunship or an artillery piece, what more could anyone want? It does not get much better than this! Superb!!

If you are a fan of guns or R. Lee Ermey or both, this show is for you. No presenter is more entertaining or enthusiastic then R. Lee Ermey when it comes to guns. Being a former Marine, Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey knows weapons and is more than happy to fire off a few (or many) rounds himself to show what they can do. From shotguns to military vehicles, there's plenty to see and learn while having laughs along the way and history and trivia provided too. I enjoyed every minute of this series and learnt a lot too. A great show and a fantastic purchase. Oorah!
