    The history of handguns.....

    There will be a show on the History channel Friday night at 9 p.m.(est) all about the history of handguns. The title of this show is "The History of Handguns," and it is hosted by retired Marine R. Lee Ermey. You might recognize Ermey from Full Metal Jacket, he was the Gunnery Sergeant. I thought that this would be a good program and just wanted to let you guys know about it, in case you want to watch it. Have a good one.

    I miss having cable. There was always some good shows about firearms on the History channel. Well maybe later in the year we can get it again.

    R. Lee Ermey is the coolest Gunny on TV! I love to see his shows, especially when he tactically destroys those dangerous watermelons!
    I've seen his new show, and he gets to shoot some really cool stuff.

    Any show with R. Lee Ermey is well worth watching!

    Thanks for the heads-up, have set it to record so I can put it on DVD.
