Disappointed in Lock N’ Load

I like R. Lee Ermey.  I like him a lot.  I love movies and every one that I’ve seen him in has been well worth watching.  I liked his old show Mail Call and had high hopes for his new show on the History Channel – Lock N’ Load.   I finally got a chance to watch an episode “Rifles” which should have been pure ambrosia.

It wasn’t.

R. Lee Ermey was good, but a little over the top.  The biggest problem was the Inaccuracies in the show.  The worst two being the claim that the 30-06 Springfield was the first cartridge designed for smokeless powder (the 30-30 Winchester has that honor) and the complete failure to include the Mauser in its section on bolt action rifles.

I’ll watch the show again, but for entertainment value only.
