Lock N' Load With R. Lee Ermey premiered on HST on July 31, 2009. Get hands-on with some of the world's fiercest firearms, including machine guns, tanks, pistols and rockets, as Gunnery Sergeant, drill instructor, Vietnam veteran, actor and former Mail Call host R. Lee Ermey demonstrates the weapons that made battlefield history. For example, Ermey unleashes a torrent of ammo using a Dillon Aero Minigun, which shoots three thousand rounds per minute, and then traces the evolutionary steps that brought the gun to its present place in history. In each episode, special high-speed photography gives viewers an unprecedented look at the inner workings of a particular weapon - how it works and what really happens at the point of impact. Advanced 3D graphics help to detail the improvements, changes in technology and thinking behind each weapon, while experts flesh out the engineering and history involved. It's an enthralling ride through the evolution, origins, innovations, victories and defeats of weapons, as Ermey delivers the story with, literally, one finger on the trigger.
