1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
Two people in the world there is never a wrong place for. One is Chuck Norris, the other R.Lee Ermey "The Gunny".
You lucky dog you.
Now that is somebody that I would gladly buy a dinner for just for the dinner conversation and ta heck with the food.
I think one of my old sets of elephant ivory grips (back when I was making ivory grips) ended up going to The Gunny.

Pretty awesome! Tell him there is free food and booze at my house anytime he feels like stopping by!

My oldest brother is a retired Marine LTC and a one time Gunnery Sgt Drill instructor at the time of the McKeon incident. He gets very up tight when anyone mentions Ermey's honorary post-service promotion to Gunnery Sergeant (E-7) from the Commandant of the Corps. He believes that he retired with what he had earned, SSgt E6, and nothing more.

well i entered a contest to have dinner with the gunny SOG KNIVES was the sponsor
lee is so real and down to earth all he cared for was if i was haveing fun omg did i
Sure he was an E-6 and probably because of his inability to spout the party line. So I guess my thought is show me an E-9 that has done what Lee has done after retirement. pretty good at second career actor. Pretty good as TV host the History channell. Pretty good as a spokesman for gun company.
I think the guy earned my respect and if the commandant wants to promote someone who am I to argue?
Always wanted a History channell challenge coin.
That must have been sweet!
Nobody like The Gunny, that's for sure!
