Do you have the grit, guts and gall to show their best impersonation of the one and only Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey, a.k.a. The Gunny, to the world?
SOG Specialty Knives and Tools has kicked off the “Are You The Gunny?” contest. Participants will be asked to videotape and upload their best Gunny impression to SOG’s Facebook page. The best impression will be selected with a winner and guest flown to Las Vegas for the 2011 Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show and Conference. Besides gaining access to the show as a guest of SOG, the winner will be invited to a special cocktail party on the first night to meet The Gunny himself.
Full entry information and contest rules are posted on the SOG Facebook page under “Contest,” along with a special video message from The Gunny. The contest ends on December 21st. I have also included information below on some of the brand-new products SOG will be introducing at the 2011 SHOT Show.
After years as a drill instructor in the U.S. Marine Corps, R. Lee Ermey became widely known for his Academy Award-nominated performance in Full Metal Jacket, as well as roles in Apocalypse Now, the Toy Story trilogy and the History Channel series Lock N’ Load With R. Lee Ermey. Ermey is a spokesperson for SOG, a brand for specialty knives and tools by the military, law enforcement, industrial tradesmen and outdoorsmen worldwide.
The SHOT Show is the world’s largest and most comprehensive trade show for professionals involved with the shooting sports and hunting industries, and is the premier showcase of combined firearms, ammunition, outdoor apparel, optics and more. It will be held at the Sands Expo & Convention Center from January 18-21. Full information can be found at www.shotshow.org.
