Old Don's Guns commercials

A friend of mine reminded me of these commercials we used to see all the time on TV when i was growing up.  I'd love to see commercials like these again.

He may just like to RENT guns....(riiiiiiiiight!)....but R. Lee Ermey USMC-R, has a different take, working for Glock. "At least I don't have to lie" in his commercials, he says. For those like myself who consider THIS man to be the #1 practitioner of the bone-shredding verbal beat-down --- and a hell of an American! --- this is a worthy partner to the post above.

Ermey specifically talks about the need for humor in gun commercials. He's...right on target.

Are there any commercials any more like that?  That's what originally prompted me to post this.  That one he said "rent", but it used to be "sell".
