His respect of current military personel as well as his humility was a breath of fresh air. A true gentleman. Some of the pompus attitudes and drama on the top shot TV show gets old pretty fast, even though they are actually pretty good also.
My nephew, SSG Josh Olson is a member of the MTU and was part of Mr Gundy's escort that day. Josh said when the replica 03A3 was presented, Mr Gundy pointed out a very small discrepancy in the rifle that the replica was missing. He was not taken very seriously but Val Forgett researched it that night and Mr Gundy was indeed correct - the rifle was fixed. Now thats a great memory.
Additionally, Mr. Gundy still shoots regularly at a range near his home.
That's one awsome fellow. I would love the honor of meeting him. My Father in law is 93 years old and was a gasser during WWII and sometime in Germany they would be past the line as they often didn't know where the line was. He drove the duece and a half fuel truck and often picked up stragglers some of which were snipers. He often said it was a wonder that he was still alive. I think the world of him. Jackie B.
Outstanding! He has the same mannerisms and humility as my father-in-law who was born/raised in Kentucky, a Korean vet. At 83 he remains an excellent marksman and still shoots his AR-15 and 700 Sendero downrange. Reloads every gun he owns until he finds the perfect recipe. He's taught me more about guns and shooting than I could ever have learned on my own.
