Product Description

Product Description

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 !!

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.

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.

absolutely amazing. very different style to say...the nra set of documentaries, this is waaay more over the top, funny etc. And it has R Lee ermy)sp?) from full metal jacket, who comes across as genuine, and genuinely passionate about all things that go boom. Also comes across as authentic as actually was in the army and actually is a gunnery sergeant(according to wikepedia got given this rank after he left the army) and again according to wkepedia isactually a "right wing" all American gun enthusias as apparently he's a ted cruise supporter. Documentary is very well priced, very informative and as I said very entertaining, covering a very impressive range of weaponry(e.g helicopters, knives, shotguns etc) can't recommend any more highly for anyone interested in guns and the military.

If you are interested in guns then your going to buy this and give it a five star rating. I see that so far no pacifists have bought this as there aren't any one star ratings.

There are a few negatives as the series has a lot to cover and limited time they have however packed in as much as they can. The narration is excellent and the animations and practical demonstrations provide a massive amount of information. What we need now is a the R. Lee Ermey Lock N' Load book that fills in the gaps and provides some encyclopedic extra information on the weapons covered.

Oooo rah! What could be a better way to learn about history than have Gunnary Sgt. Hartman himself teach you all about it. Simple show with each firearm briefed from the earliest concepts to modern day. LOCK AND LOAD!

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!!
