    Oh and I don't think I have ever seen some one enjoy blowing water melons up with high powered ordinance as much as he did lol

    In his later years he was a High Power rifle competitor at Camp Perry in Ohio. He was just one of the guys out there.

    Yeah I don't think a lot of people realized most of the 'shots' he took on the Lock and Load show were really one take affairs. Not endlessly emptying magazines at water melons before actually hitting one.

    RIP Gunny.

    I was also a big fan of his.

    I read a story that he was originally the "technical expert" for the DI scenes on FMJ. The actor couldn't do it as well as R. Lee so they hired him on the spot to fill that role. The rest, as they say, is history.
