I was bumping around on YOUTUBE and ran accross this. R. Lee Ermy giving an interview to Shooting Industry (presumably the magazine). He seems to be on our side.

He "seems" to be on our side?

Not to mention his show on the History Channel where he shoots anything he can get his hands on. I don't know many former serviceman that go anti-gun.

Yep spokesperson for Glock and the host of "Mail Call".

He is definitely on our side.

He actually strikes me as the real deal. I get the feeling that he really is a what you see is what you get kind of guy.

He's also on Team Hornady's Camp Perry rifle team as a shooter.

"I have 30 handguns at home. Why do I need to wait 15 days to pick up my pistol?"

R. Lee Ermey, voicing my own sentiments... well... eventually my sentiments.

"I don't know many former serviceman that go anti-gun."

I do. A lot of them believe that only the police and the military should be allowed to have guns. That stupid worthless civilians like us shouldn't be trusted and that it makes their job of "taking care of us" harder.

"I don't know many former serviceman that go anti-gun."

Unfortunately I have to agree with Phil's comment above. I've met plenty of former military who think civilians should be disarmed.

I still can't quite believe that Ermey is the spokesman for Glock. He always struck me as a 1911 guy. Well, ya gotta pay the bills somewhow.

he's the real deal, walked the walk, and now talks the talk. Like anybody who's seen evil ,he knows we the people must be armed to fight it, he also loves shooting most anything that goes boom.:D My kind of guy.

He will be at Vance's gun shop in Columbus, OH May 15 meeting the public and taking pics. I plan to go and see him. Maybe if I'm lucky he will let me "lean in and choke myself" for a funny photo op.

Just make sure you lean in, he doesn't like it when you pull his hands to your neck. ;)

Hey, if they wanted to pay me what they are probably paying him, I'd be a spokesmand for Glock, too.

The Gunny has been at the Glock booth at the NRA annual meetings and Shot show the last couple of years that I know of. He gave a speech for one of the gun collectors groups at the NRA show 2 years ago. He is hold your sides funny and is the REAL DEAL! He makes no bones about it that he is pro gun and on the right side of Attila the hun. Even though his Marine corps career was not a lifer he has a profound respect for the military and America. God Bless this guy...there are too few in the public eye like him.

Yeah, I bet the boys in the Springfield marketing department are kicking themselves.

If I recall correctly, different gun makers kept trying to get him to be their spokesman - he kept refusing and than finally gave in and told them to all send him a gun to try.

He shot them all and decided that Glock was the best, so he went Glock. ;p

The Gunny is not only the real deal, but he's very personable and a good time to be around. He's a genuine nice guy and a very positive role model.

I guess that's one of the reason he's very much respected and adored by so many.

Well dang. I'll be heading down to Louisville for the NRA convention that day. Maybe I'll have time to swing by on the way down. What time will he be there? Maybe he's on his way down to the convention too.

I don't know many former serviceman that go anti-gun.

There are plenty. Off the top of my head, Glenn, Clark, Gore, et. al.

He "gets it".

I love the gunny. Saw him at the SHOT SHOW this past year at the Glock booth.

I've had the pleasure of meeting The Gunny @ the SHOT Show a few times and find him to be very down-to-earth, very supportive of 2nd Amendment rights and a helluva patriot.

Sorry to not be all over the love-in here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCp8yFtRkDY&feature=related

Direct quote:

"I understand the need for a cooling off period...I have lots of guns."

What about someone who doesn't own a gun yet but needs to buy one for self defense?

"Guns for me, but not for thee". I'm not all that impressed. :scrutiny::scrutiny::scrutiny:

I think the point R. Lee is trying to make is that a waiting period for gun "N+1" doesn't make much sense.

Umm... where is that quote coming from? It's sure not in the video you linked to.
