    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.

    "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 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.

    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 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. ;)

    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.

    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
