hickok45 : I posted this comment and picture on Facebook this morning: So sad to hear the news about good old R. Lee Ermey yesterday. He was a "prince of a fellow," as they say. Most of us will really miss this guy. John and I have had the good fortune to chat briefly with him at SHOT Show Media Day in recent years. I often tell the story of talking with him at SHOT Show 2017, I guess it was. He had been there standing at the Glock booth for hours meeting people and such. I said something to him about how that looked like hard work for an old guy like him. His reply was, "Work? This isn't work; working is when you have a shovel in your hands." I thought that was a great answer, and just what I would have expected from Ermey. Even though I'm sure he made millions in the movies, hanging around movie sets for weeks and months, living the life of a "movie star," he's a guy that you just know knew all about real work, real work with a shovel in his hands. Great guy.

The Chopsticks : Gunny is the one who got me into guns. Thank you Sergeant for teaching us great valuable lessons on tv.

Jus' Nuts : My older brother has a Garand, and it's in great shape! I want a 1911 in good shape. The M16.... well, you'd have to pay me to take one. I know, I'm a heretic. But before you bash me, let me tell you this. I'm a Desert Storm vet. I've used a M16A1 in Basic, and a M16A2 in the desert. Why would I want a weapon in combat that, other than a head shot, I'd have to pump 2 or 3 rounds into an single enemy to stop them?? The weapon is accurate, there's no argument there. But, hasn't got the knockdown power to be effective in combat. One shot, one kill. Not with a M16. A Garand, yes. A 1911, yes at a reasonable range. I'm simply not a fan of the M16.

weejams : RIP Gunny. But most people know he never made E7. He was medically discharged as an E6 which is Staff Sergeant. The USMC made him an honorary Gunnery Sergeant. He still did his duty and was a DI so... This Marine, actor and spokesman for Glock and Victory bikes will be well missed. Still an American Hero by all means. Watching Full Metal Jacket before going to Basic Training got me through it with ease. Everyone needs to watch that movie before going through basic or boot camp. Thank you Gunny. RIP brother. Grab God's M60 in the sky and give us all cover. I would give a salute but NCOs work for a living and a middle finger is better than a salute. I have been drinking beer and actually opened one and poured it out for Gunny. No man. You got it right. It is gunny or sarge in the real military unless you are in trouble then it is Sergeant or First Sergeant and so on. Gunny is a cool term and is used a lot but normally just Sergeant. I was Army so it was always Sarge until you got in trouble. In trouble it was always Sergeant or First Sergeant. If that makes sense.

Gerald Scott : I always had a lot of respect for Sergeant R. Lee Ermey. As a veteran of the United States Marine Corps myself, I thought it was great that he was a real Marine, and not just an actor. I have a distaste for non patriotic actors (are there anything else these days?) who never served in the military playing military heros. I am certainly no hero, I was never in combat. But I would have gone had I been deployed. So many flag burner types want the security our military provides, but wouldn't consider joining themselves. Cpl. Gerald R Scott USMC 1977-1981.

Goggles Sukass : Marine culture is a little different than Army. It's Gunny or Gunnery Sergeant, never just Sergeant. YOU MAY DIE BUT THE MARINE CORPS LIVES ON FOREVER THUS YOU LIVE FOREVER.

B. Fagan : Hooah! and RIP to Sgt. Ermey. Was a fan from age 11 (42, now), and watched him in all his roles on t.v. and movies and will also miss Mail Call. He will be missed.

Aaron M : I had the pleasure of meeting R. Lee Ermey--as seen in my profile photo--(also met Hickok45) at the NRA Convention in 2014. A really cool fella and an American hero a dozen times over. Godspeed, Gunny. Semper Fi, OORAH!!

dennis aldeman : Thank you Hickok for the tribute ,I'm sure as on Earth he loved this tribute and now in heaven amongst his fellow Marines he loves it even more ....I named my new purchase a 1954 M1 Garand " Gunny" in his honor and too his memory ... rest in peace R.Lee Ermey ,we miss you already ,gone too soon !!!

BeerDeerbarBqdear : Love the feed, the respect, toys and this awesome tribute for Gunny R Lee Ermey , SEMPER FI. Ps you, your son, Alex and Matt are true American Gunny for YouTube fans as well I'm sure Gunny would follow yous too.

Jeremy Orr : R LEE ERMEY thank you for your service god bless you and all Marines say hi to my grandfather for me he is a fellow u.s Marine and a follower of your show I bet he will be there to greet you in the Gates of Heaven Simper Fi and thank you!
