This is a one of kind Rifleman's Creed T Shirt from the Stanley Kubrick film, Full Metal Jacket, screen printed with Steel Gray ink and available only at Apparelsphere.
Could you make it through Gunnery Sergeant Hartman's boot camp? I'd wager that a lot of people today couldn't. They don't make them like they used to. Joker and Cowboy did but crazy Private Gomer Pyle didn't. Come to think of it, neither did Gunny.
R Lee Ermey really nailed the part of Marine Drill Sergeant probably because during the Vietnam War he really served as a U.S. Marine drill instructor. He made up most of his lines in the movie too. Total hard core badass, probably why he reps for Glock.
Released in 1987, Full Metal Jacket has always been like two movies inside of one for me, the intense boot camp portion and then the even more intense Vietnam War portion. Stanley Kubrick based Full Metal Jacket on the novel, The Short-Timers, by Gustav Hasford which was about his time as a Marine in the Vietnam War. This Full Metal Jacket T Shirt has a portion of the Marine Corps Rifleman's Creed that makes up the image of the M14 rifle.
This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will... Before God, I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life... So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but peace!
